    Tomorrow I'm up at 3. I'll be at best buy first with a friend, and if they don't have any at 5, I'll rush over to walmart, circuit city, and/or toys r us (after calling to find out if they even have any wiis left). After that, if those stores don't have any, I'll line up outside target till their opening at 6, and if THEY don't have any, then I'm going to a nearby mall and waiting till 7, when gamestop/eb games open. And if I can't get any tomorrow, I'll be outside best buy sunday morning.

    So what's everyone else doing tomorrow to get their wii?

    im gonna go to best buy between 3:30 - 4:30, sprint to the video game section in search of a wii. if that fails, im heading over to the mall thats just five minutes away to wait for the gamestop AND ebgames there to open at 7. im gonna try to convince my dad to leave me at the mall and wait at another gamestop near my house.

    total, thats four shots at finding a wii, so im gonna be real pissed if i dont get one.

    we're just playing it safe, because we know that there are still tons of people who want a wii, especially after the amazing reaction that everyone who got a wii at launch had towards it.

    That's what I thought too, but all the calls I made this week (and I made many) resulted in either "We won't have any on Black Friday" or "I'm not sure." So, while I have a sneaking suspicion that some of them may have been lying, they haven't really left me much to go off of as to which store has the best possibilities of getting a wii. So I figure, why not just hit them all? Luckily, a nearby mall has a Best Buy, EB Games, and a Gamestop, a strip mall across the way has a Circuit City and a Walmart.

    I'm gonna be in line at Gamestop at 2am. I'll check at 11pm, 12pm, and 1am to make sure I am 1st in line. Then the wait begins...

    ^I think you will have no problem getting one if you do that. Quick question, is EB definitely getting consoles for tomorrow though? Is it a known thing? If so, then I smell more camping coming people's way tomorrow morning or tonight, depending on how early you go.

    I'll still be waiting for the Wii... have to work tomorrow. (Could have used a vacation day but want to save those for next summer.) I don't have the cash right now to get one, so even if I had the day off it wouldn't matter... I don't really want to be around any stores tomorrow anyway. The traffic will probably be insane, as I live near a mall and several shopping centers.

    All the shipments our local Gamestops have gotten in this week have been held for tommorow. Each store has estimated 5-10 Wii's, so I have to get there early to be in the front of the line. And my local Best Buy will not have them, and neither will Target or WalMart. So for me, my only option is Gamestop. Wish me luck, 6 hours until I start scouting....

    Good luck man. If your willing to camp out for 5 - 6 hours, I don't see any problem getting one. I only camped for 7 on launch day and got one without much trouble. So you should be fine. None the less, good luck man. Hope you get one.

    I'm kind of torn here: I could go to toys r us at 5, but I won't be near any other stores if the toys r us doesn't have them. However, when I called yesterday, a woman told me that the word was they WOULD have them for black friday. But I called back later right before they closed and a different woman (not nearly as polite as the first!) said they wouldn't have them. If I don't get one at toys r us, I could always wait outside a gamestop though.

    The other option is to wait outside best buy, and then if they don't have any, I can rush over to walmart or circuit city, and then if they don't have any, I can try the toys r us (although I probably won't get there till around 5:30) and then a target and then a gamestop/ebgames.

    So should I go with the first plan, which would maximize on the probability the store is actually selling wiis, or should I go with the second plan, where I would just hit every store but I may end up hitting the right one too late?
