    I live . . . . in your soul . . . thats deep
    I have been saving up my money for years now, doing hard work and labor, and getting multiple jobs. Yesterday, I achieved my goal of 300 dollars to buy a wii. I went to Gamestop at 8:30, waited in the cold for 1 hour and a half until the store opened, to reserve a Nintendo wii. After it opened, I went inside, with my hopes up, and asked the cashier, "Can I reserve a wii?"
    These were his dark words . . . "Oh, sorry. We aren't doing that anymore. You were a bit late. We stopped yesterday night." Yesterday was the day I went to get a wii at gamestop, and on the way I was hit by a car and sprained my wrist and ankle. All for nothing . . .
    I then asked, "Around when will you have some in stock?"
    More dark words. He said, "We'll have them again around . . . " Not tomorrow, or next week, it was, "FEBRUARY." I have to wait for a wii until FEBRUARY.
    I dont have money to buy online, and I also have a sprained wrist and ankle, with a sore back, all for nothing . . .
    I am only typing with one hand, making it take a long time . . .

    Please don't say
    Sucks for you!
    Or say,
    Get over it.
    I just wanted to say what the wii is capable of doing . . .
    IT IS WORTH IT!!!
    Thanks for reading my New Years Eve tale . . .

    Ow...
    All I had to do was pitch a tent outside Wal-Mart/Zellers for launch day!
    (With Zelda, an extra Wiimote and Nunchuk, and NFS:Carbon; ALL ON LAUNCH DAY!!)
    :yesnod:

    I got so many new friends there...

    my aunt waited on line that day and bought me one since i gave her the money to do so. she bought myself and herself a wii, and in return, i am going to buy her super smash bros brawl when i possibly camp out for it. i may just pre order it for her, but camping out seems more exciting.

    Best place to pick up friends, is your local Walmart or Zellers :lol:

    He meant buying the Wii online, like Ebay.
    If he doesn't have a Wii he is not worried about the cost of what the Wii's online is, although it is free.

    And to Smileface.
    I am sorry to hear that. Hurting yourself is never a good thing, and doing it and getting nothing in return is even worse. Maybe one of your pals can hook you up with a Wii online or something, or try other stores. Thats your best bet.

    Aww, that's so sad.... My girlfriend went to Wal-Mart and one just so happened to be there... so she bought it, and this story made me realize that not everyone is that lucky.

    Gamestop sucks... I called around desperately, and if Wal-Mart has one, then go for it.

    I'm probably the only person here that wants a 1-UP mushroom as my tombstone then, with my ashes put in my Gamecube after it was gutted, my PS1 burned, my Wii buried beside me, my GBA with my Chuck Norris strength gamer's thumb cased inside...
    ...all the nice stuff.

    I'll still be gaming in my hospital bed.
    To the grave and beyond!!
