    I waited about 30 seconds.

    I handed over my reserve form, laughed at the people who didn't reserve and walked out with my new Wii and Twilight Princess :)

    lucky you ...

    well I had to call around for a week. I finally got one July 4th at target. They said they had two in stock over the phone, half an hour later, I got the last one :smilewinkgrin:

    Edit: the half an hour was getting to the store; I didn't wait in line

    I went to Babbages, a game store in the Mall and the guy was talking on phone saying they only have 1 Wii left but it does not have the Wii Sports with it. I asked him if there still hard to get, the Wii Systems. He said "yep". I cant believe they are still hard to get. Most systems after awhile of being out and being sold, you can walk into a store and get one off the shelf. The PS3 like a week after coming out, this guy was walking around in Target and there were six of them on the shelf, he bought all six. Dont ask why, I have no idea. Wait how much is that? Isnt that like 3600 bucks?

    That's true! I've never seen anything like this. It's almost another Christmas again and Nintendo will do really, really well this year! And as for the guy that grabbed 6 PS3, that's insane! All the electronics stores in my area (Target, Walmart, Best Buy...) have stacks and stacks of PS3 piled up and nobody touch it!

    Funny thing is, nobody touchy el PS3, cause price too expensey. Just be patient young one's it'll drop they always do....enjoy the wii! Supply-demand, say it with me, if price too high, no one buy, if price drop, there is always a flop. -old ancient chinese proverb

    13 hours. If I'd been two or three hours later, I wouldn't have had one. Funny thing is though, I haven't touched my Wii since finishing Twilight Princess.
