    I dont think so, probably not until Nintendo releases the price and release date.

    You might be able to order it from a games store now, ask them about it.

    Ok, I will try the local EB store. Has anyone here tried to pre-order one from a local game store?

    I just called GameStop, here in Columbus Ohio, and was told to try back the first half of next month...for an August release.

    So If you pre-order it's going to be 260$ right?
    (I never per-ordered any thing in my life.)

    When you preorder you pay the same price as everyone else (whatever the price may be in this case), so if you have to $50 down to reserve and the system sells for $199 then you have to pay $149 when you go pick it up

    And the plot thickens...

    Wowzers! Where are you located? From what I've heard (and I know it's widely debated) our local stores are preordering games...but holding on the console to see how many they'll be able to have at launch. All the local stores I've talked to are expecting the Wii to hit in August (but are they getting info from a distributor, or just making a best guess?)

    I'm in Walnut Creek,California (Near San Franscio). The EB and GameStop were taking pre-orders for the games. I was looking to pre-order Wii Sports,and the conductor game(I don't know what is called. But you can't pre-order these.

    I dont think that you will ever be able to pro-order online because you could give false info making the store hold it for a "fake" Person that would never pick it up/

    behind you
    On amazon.co.uk i have given them my email and when its avalible to pre-order they send you an email and its the same price if you were to wait untill its actuactly realeased. So i recomend going to Amazon. If you are in a different country from the U.K or the U.S serch for it on your browser.

    My friend called gamestop and they held a pre-order for him. The price he has to pay is $250 US. I think that is a Wii expensive (pun intended :) )

    This is kinda of strange that some GameStop stores can preorder the Wii, as your friend did and some can't I'm going to e-mail Gamestop customer service and ask them if you can pre-order the Wii. I will post their repsonse here.

    Ok, I found it on the US Amazon site but I couldn't find a link where you can put your e-mail address to get notified when it is ready to be pre-ordered.
