    Wal-mart is a midnight launch. By the time you get there at 2 A.M. everyone will be at home playing already. Go to Costco if your going at 2 A.M.

    There was a lot of hype about the whole "shortage" idea that's out there. Even with that I would imagine that you will be going plenty early.

    1) This is like the 7th thread you have made asking about the wii launch, just keep posting in one of them instead.

    2) You will be fine. Unless you live in a highly populated area with like one wal-mart only, you don't have to panic.

    honestly? i doubt that you can keep all of these release threads all in one. hard to control that much energy in such a small capsule, but yea....

    i feel so mean saying.... PREORDER!!!! w00t! <--- nerdy. it's just such a mean thing to say, yet so fulfilling. :lol:

    Don't go to walmart at all. They don't even know what the wii is. I called them and they said they havn't heard of it. They put me on to the manager and I asked him and he said all he knows is it comes out Nov. 12 which is wrong. Also when the Xbox 360 came out some grandma beat up 2 kids and a dad and got arrested. Only at walmart.

    I say you start camping now if you really want to secure a Wii.

    Honestly man, I really don't think that is needed. If your store is having a midnight release, then sure. But if they are orpning in the morning, I think there will be enough to go around.

    Ya thats what everyone is saying, but just think,if your wrong, and i went to target at like 6am and then didnt get one i would be soo pissed. I dont want a wii on launch, i need one! lol. and its just the experience of camping out that i want. Ill be able to tell my kids how when i was young i stayed out all night waiting to get that ancient game system they konw little about.

    We have two Wal-Marts here, both open 24 hours (I thought all Wal-Marts were open 24 hours though?). My friends plan on going 24 hours ahead of time, but I really don't see a reason for such drastic measures, haha. I'll probably be there with them the whole time anyways, because I'd hate to be the only one of my friends w/o a Wii because I didn't feel as crazy as them.

    Then again, I might just sit back and have them give me a heads-up call when the lines hit around 10-15 people.

    True. But my local Target right down the road from me is ellegedly getting 120 Wiis... I don't think I have much to worry about. Even if there is a line when I get there at 6... I highly doubt there will be 120 people.
