    Starting around early November to early December I would phone in to various stores to check and see if they had any consoles in. Unfortunately I didn't have any luck finding one. However my parents had purchased it earlier on for my brother and I and gave it to us at Christmas...

    So other than the 15+ phone calls I made it wasn't that hard since my parents had purchased it for us.

    I use to the money I earned at my job and bought it with 5 games extra controller and nuchucks and also some Wii points. You have to be a little independent and stop asking your mummy for money or her to buys you things and earn it.

    Very hard
    I had to get dressed
    Go outside
    Wait for the buss
    Get on the buss
    Sit next to someone I dont know
    Get off at the shopping center
    Walk to game
    Hand over my preorder slip
    Wait for them to get it
    Put my card in the slot
    Put in the number with my fingers extended
    Then I got it

    Fun version
    I packed my sack with the usual items witch where
    My 100hp drink
    My maxed out DeathKitanna
    Put on my armor all maxed out
    Went out of my domain killing the dragon on the way
    Killed a few low level peons
    Got on the carriage
    Maimed the person sat near the window
    Carriage was attacked (damn random fights)
    Killed the peons
    Went and met the boss (strman lv100)
    He was surrounded by lower level peons (about lv50 each)
    I played my Card of credit
    They died the strman took little damage
    So I drew my maxed out DeathKitana
    and said BANKAIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
    Insert loads of flashy shite here
    Struck him down
    Received the wii
    Ending was the journey home Credits rolled TBC at the end

    I waited in line in late October to preorder it for about an hour and half. It was paid off by the time the release came around so I just went in at midnight and picked it up. Of course I walked away with a smug smile as other people came in asking if they could get one, but were turned away.

    We went all over Lima.We thought maybe we'd be lucky and find one at the game store.We went to Game Crazy and asked the guy working if they had any wiis.He said no but they had a waiting list.We were number 9 on the list.We got it in 2 weeks.We went back to put ourselves on that list again for my mother in law.It took 1 week this time.She'll be pretty happy on Mother's Day. :)

    My Wii was also a gift fromy my parents for getting good grades. But they said I had to take care of the ordering since they are just providing the money. So I searched everywhere online and finally managed to get one pre-ordered with Argos.co.uk at the last minute. I consider myself VERY lucky to have a Wii.

    I walked up to Target 2 hours before they opened on the 19th of November and waited in a line. An hour after they opened I walked out with a Wii and some accessories.

    I will never pre-order something like this. I have heard so many people getting screwed over with game stop and EB that I only go there if I can't find the game or accessory at any other place.

    Good thread

    Man getting the Wii was really bad...
    I had the money to buy the Wii and LoZ:TP, no problem with cash...
    There was a store with the game, but no Wii, I went to more stores in search for the Wii. Entered in like 5 stores, but no Wii, just launch games.
    I was getting sick of that, so instead of going to the stores, just went to home, and phoned other stores:
    (Me) - Hey, do you have any Nintendo Wii in store??
    (Employe) - Let me check that out.

    *waits for like 10 minutes*

    (Employe) - Sorry, we sold our Wiis today.
    (Me) - Oh really, ok thanks.

    *frustration*

    And this phone calls repeats like 5 more times...
    I did one more call, and the answer was FU**ING YES.

    Now I have a Wii and 5 games, and I love it...
