    Well I also have a thread about this. I was thinking of going at 4:00Pm to my 24 hour walmart. I just hope this is early enough and I will be able to get one.

    Well, I dont think Nintendo is going to be like microsoft and not make enough to go around. Sadly I will be on vacation when it comes out, so I guess I will have to wait.

    I'm calling my Walmart every 30 minutes, starting at noon to check up on the line as soon as they say Oh some one's here, I'm gone to wait. I'm thinking 4 pmish though

    17 hours, "So, what do you tell you're imaginary girlfriend?" At least you'd be first in line. I was.

    i think it depends where you live. some stores you can just walk in and buy it.. i remember my friend did it with the gamecube. he had a reservation for it at a game store, and forgot!! but he walked into a target and they had about 10 of them... LUCKY B! as for me, im #1 on the preorder list... so im just gonna go 2 hours before opening.. on the other hand, by bf is getting the PS#. he's camping out over night.... 14 hrs to be exact

    Im gonna be there at 5:20-6:00AM and the store opens at 10AM. Anyone know if thisll be soon enough or not? From previous camp outs? Id go out earlier but 5AM is curfew. And for the past few weeks ive been going crazy over it. Need some advice :(

    There has never been a line at any of the 24/7 wal-marts around here, so i'll probably get there at like 11 pm or later.

    I'm gettin worried too because if its anything like the PS3 then I have no chance of getting one. I went to my Walmart today and there is already 12 people camping out for the PS3 and 8 of them have been there since yesterday.

    I'm going to get to my 24/7 walmart on Saturday morning. Just in case. If there's no line, good for me and i'll come back in a few hours. If there is, i'll be waiting :) Plus, i'll need the sleep since i'll probably be doing an all nighter with my PS3 (resistence looks so sick!!)
