    hi guys im new here.

    so im just as excited as everyone else here about the wii and i absolutluy cant wait to get monkey ball and zelda on the 19th. unfortunatly my friend canceld on me for lining up for the preorders and missed them last weekend. I will not let this stop me from getting a wii on the 19th. Since i have never been this excited for a system before i have never lined up to get a system on release day. so my question is what time do u guys think i should start lining up (realisticly) on the 18th to still gurentee me a wii?
    thanks for your input guys.

    Welcome.

    Since Best Buy didn't accept pre-orders, everybody has a fair chance to get the Wii there. But, you need to get there REALY early. I would say like 5PM on the 18th at Best Buy, maybe even before noon on the 18th.

    release day

    ok so I work at a circuit city in the United States, more precisely, California. I was closing the night before the X-Box 360 came out and I swear it was not even dark yet before people started lining up, but only a few people. And by the time I got off work which was probably around nine oclock at night, there was a pretty decent line. So I opened the next morning and the line had sort of grown. People came rushing in like mad men.. it was crazy.

    So to be safe I would say try and get to a Best Buy/ Circuit City/ wherever as early as you can the day before. Realistically around six or seven. But remember this was for the 360... and I am thinking the Wii is going to be more popular, but then again there will be more in stock on release day.

    depends where your going. if i were to camp out, i would be there before noon. but i would most likely go to best buy, target, or wal mart.

    A sneaky way i did it with my 360 was though, was that i lined up at a costco about 30 min. before 9, when it opened, only one there, walked in, saw a stack of 360 bundles got one, left. I'm not doing that this year because i fear the bundle they have won't be too sweet. Last year i wanted pgr3 and 360, so it worked
