    O.K., after totally butchering the word acquisition, I was curious. How do you all plan to go about getting you Wii(s). Right now I see about three primary means.

    a) Like a newb, your could preorder
    b) Like a hardcore, and I mean HARDCOR gamer you could camp out the night befor at a Best Buy.
    c) Like a lazy person, you could go in the next day and pray some are still there.

    I'm going with b.

    I'll be going to Wal-Mart 6 hours before midnight and waiting in line/creating the line.

    Can't really camp out at Wal-Mart, since it's open 24/7. But 6 hours should be sufficient, espicially since there will be 2 million Wiis in America..

    I think someone didn't get a preorder cause they arent HARDCORE enough so their saying preordering is for newb. If you were hardcore, you would wait out in the cold to get a preorder THEN wait outside on launch night. If you were hardcore you wouldnt take the chance because you knew you would HAVE to get it.

    Yeah...

    My area is sort of devoid of any video game stores that I would ever trust to effeciently handle a mass-preorder situation. Especially after the 360.

    One... You're a moron for putting those as the options. It offends me. I'd hardly think that being laid back enough to not pre-order it, and risk not getting one, would be newb-ish. Pre-ordering would be for the hardcore gamers, since they don't wanna risk not getting their hands on their system. >.> You, sir, have a VERY strange way of thinking...
    ...And if you haven't guessed, it's A for me. Representin' the "newbs!" xD


    Edit:

    Oh, and about this...


    That is, in NO way, the video game retailer's fault. All the blame belongs to Microsoft, for being retards and not supplying as many 360's as they allowed, pre-orders. Nintendo is to be trusted with this. Pre-ordering it is a gurantee that you get a Wii. But it's too late for you. Sorry, but. ;D

    It wasn't only for Gamestop. Microsoft was supposed to specify the ammount of pre-orders, and they didn't, resulting in not enough systems.

    I preordered. Which to Acer589 means I'm a "noob", but at least I'll get one. :D

    how does b make you hardcore? i mean if there was no other way, but camping out when you can just preorder is a bit pointless imo

    I preordered early on, but im now pretty sure i'll be able to walk into the store on launch day and pick one off the shelf.

    for some reason i think that they arent even gonna put them on the shelf just have the shipping box behind the counter and just pull em as they go well that my theory and if it is i need to develop a shrink ray and fast

    Don't any of you pre-orderers have jobs????? I would have loved to wait in line 5 hours before the store opened! Anyway, I guess I will pick B even though I wouldn't describe myself as a "hardcore gamer"-- I just really want a Wii.
