    If I get to Best Buy at 4 am and they open at 5 am what do you think the chances of me getting a Wii? I just wanna know if its worth going there at 4 am or if I can save an extra hour and get there at 5 and still get a Wii. Around the Best Buy I'm going to there is a mall with an FYE, Gamestop, and EB Games inside, so what do you guys think?

    im not too sure, but from the thread that i posted, asking a similar question, most people said that black friday is just a huge mob rushing into the stores, so im guessing when you get there isnt going to be as big of a factor as on launch day.

    I heard they're going to hand out tickets again at Best Buy. If I don't get it at Best Buy does anyone know what time Wal-Mart opens?

    If you really want one, you'll get there at 3am. That should gurantee you a ticket for a Wii.

    I don't care what time I get there it's just that I don't know if my parents will let me drive out there at 3 in the morning.

    Alright I think this is my plan I'm going to go to Best Buy around 3:30 and see if theres a line, if the line is huge I probably will just line up somewhere else. But I really think that there won't be a huge line.

    You guys also have to remember that the good majority of people there in line are going for good deals on everything BUT the Wii, like TV's, computers, DVD's, etc. Don't give up if you see big lines!

    If i were you i would get there earlier. Tomorrow is going to be insane, its basically a mob of crazy people buying things they probably wont use. But if you really want one, then i would get there at 3 AM

    it seems that game stores cant do much with their prices for black friday. very rarely will you see any sale at a video game store. also, isnt the wii reason enough to go on any day?

    Now that is some usefull info for people looking for a Wii. I advise people ALWAYS call ahead before going to your local whatever store.

    You might want to call stores in the morning and see what's going on with the stock. Try:
    Sears, Costco, Walmart, K-Mart, EB Games, Gamestop, Gamecrazy, and Circuit City. You should be able to get one if you go early enough.

    yeah call them up before you go out and waste time doing it, because they might already be out or had tickets handed out, oh yeah and another thing is think of it this way... i know this from personal experience, ( dont waste your time asking employees if they are getting any sort of new "HARD TO GET SYSTEm" because they will always bullshit you... when i was working at frys electronics i got the same question about the xbox360 asked atleast 50 times a day and it gets pretty annoying so you start telling them false informoation. just some word of advise.

    i have a friend that works there, she told me about it and then my manager also told me about it, i work at frys electronics and STORE managers seem to know everything about every other stores inventory and such.

    and heres a BLACK FRIDAY website that tells you all the specials, and has scanned photos of ADS.
