    Wondering if I head up to a local Wal-Mart at 8PM or so tomorrow (In GA) if their would be any campers, or if I could grab one easily enough.

    Just keep calling your wal mart every hour or so, or stop in and check for your self, once a line starts to form get in the and start waiting. I live in a average size town and my 24/7 wal-mart will have between 30-60+ wii's so i dont see me having to camp to awful long, but you never know, just depends on how many ppl in your area want the wii. Could be a few ppl, could be a few hundred.

    It depends on where you live. I'm trying to decide if I should go get in line tonight and camp out or wait and go tommorow. There is already a few people camping at my Walmart.

    There is noone camping so far tonight. Then again I don't even think wal-mart has it setup for people to even lineup yet for it.

    Why can't it be like that here? I'm not sure if I'll be able to get one since there is already people in line.

    I really dn't know. I am not sure if the wal-marts here were tired of having people camping outside or what because they had caution tape up for the ps3 lines and they took it down. So I am not sure exactly what they are going to do. A guy working there said so many people ordered them online from wal-mart's warehouses that they don't expect there to be a lot of people at midnight to get the instore wiis. But expects more people to be there later on sunday.

    Keep in mind I'm just talking about where I am not wal-mart in general.

    good luck to everyone though with however they have to get there wiilicious system.

    call to see if there is a line or call and ask how many systems will be available. Some stores will screw the consumers and keep over half for employees. I know walmart out here are bigots. I am going 9 am tomorrow. I dont care if Im first or not, thats me. I have 3 angry kids and I aint coming home without one. Sorry if your parents arent hardcore like me, just tell em its the holidays. Gotta have the hot shti. I did it on purpose.

    Question, I called a local wal mart and they said they'll have 20, but 7-8 people are already in line. My question is; if I cant get it this week, then will I be able to get it this week at all? Will it just be totally gone?

    Nah, Nintendo is sending a steady flow of shipment probably once or twice a week. If you don't get it this Sunday, keep trying every day.

    I'm going to start camping at noon at my local Sam's Club tomorrow. I kept tabs on them for the PS3 release and the campers showed up at about 2pm yesterday so hopefully I'll be first at that store tomorrow for the Wii. I don't know where you guys are but the lows for tomorrow night are going to be 28 here.......hope some of you who are camping have better weather than I'll have ;)

    Nintendo is going to have two or three more shipments before Christmas. Thats about once every two weeks.

    Wow, the gaming scene in America is sooooo different to Australia. The shops here wouldnt even dare to those sort of line-ups. We have midnight launches, but due to the nature of the shops, and security, it would be impossible to be queued up outside them hours before-hand. And I dont think the demand for pre-orders is quite as great (our local Toys R Us only has 100 pre-orders down, admittedly EB etc would have more but I didnt ask).
    I'll probably tread to Japan when the next Nintendo arrives, just so I can 'experience' one of these pre-order queues :smilewinkgrin:

    So how the hell do you get your Wii? Everyone shows up at the same exact time?
