    I don't expect there will be too much of this. Probably just people thinking since PS3 people do it they have to.

    Hopefully common sense will prevail here.

    Hopefully, but some people are crazy, my suggestion call wherever you are camping starting tommorow every hour or so and ask if there is a line, as soon as they say yeah someones here, go, because about 10 minutes later all the spots will be filled. There are lines of 150+ people waiting for 25 ps3's right now. I predict that violence will ensue :nonod:

    Yeah Went to my wal-mart at uh oo i believe around 11 am this mourning and ther was already at least 20 ppl camping inside and our wal mart only has like 6 ps3's. So0o if you for shure want a Wii on launch day, you best be willing to camp cuz i see them going fast like hot cakes. Much bigger fan following than ps3 and they are alot cheaper which attracts everyone else. I agree with messykitty keep checking for a line, then soon as someone's there get there and start waiting.

    If I start camping at noon on Saturday at Walmart will I get a wii? This is my first camp, so I hope to get this right.

    I went and counted earlier at the shopping center near my house. There were 12 tents at Best Buy, 1 at Target, none at Walmart, and none at EB (however, EB is not doing midnight launch here, and I don't think they got any over pre-orders). Nobody inside Walmart either. I suspect most if not all of the campers are for PS3.

    That's when I'm going, and I don't expect any problems getting one.

    Barring crazy Wii campers, I have a good chance at being first in line.

    Better yet, since PS3 campers were camping IN THE STORE, our Wal-Mart said "Never again" meaning that Wii campers won't be allowed. Hopefully standing there for 12 hours isn't camping. I don't think so. :wink:

    Espicially here. We just got 3 inches of rain in a few hours (horrid downpour). I feel it's the gods smiting the PS3 campers outside. Take that!

    I'm glad I'll be under a roof, I imagine it will be cold and rainy on Saturday, as per the usual.

    There was already 6 people at the wal-mart I'll be camping at(on Saturday) for the PS3, I expect the Wii to fetch a long line. Supposedly(hearsay) Wal-mart is getting 49 Wii's, so I'm hoping that I won't need to camp out too early. I'll be heading out to Wal-Mart at 2PM irregardless, it's gunna be some fun. DSLite = win.

    Most people getting the ps3 are doing it for the money. The Wii won't fetch the same price, so I believe that the lines won't be as crazy. But then again that might just be hopeful thinking! ;)

    It's possible, i've seen people find ethernet ports and hook there own routers up to it in a store to get online. Or municipal wifi

    I'm kinda worried now. My band has a show on Saturday night and I will not be able to make the midnight launch, but I'm worried that there will be a huge line at Target and I won't get a Wii in the morning. I was planning on going there at 12-1 and lining up for the night. Now I'm not sure if that's going to be good enough.
