    Apparently a bunch of people were lined up this morning (Thursday the 7th) outside of my brother's store, because they thought they were releasing them today.

    I just hope there i don't miss my chance :(

    An employee in Toys R Us told me that they will get shipments on December 20. Also Walmart told me they were getting shipments on the 12th. I doh't know if this is true, but it seemed reliable. BTW I live in Toronto.

    Edit: Also I might go early tommorow to Bestbuy in Downtown Toronto (hope I get one).

    I really hope I'm able to get one at Futureshop, I'll be going there as early in the morning as I can. I tried to get one at Walmart on the 6th, but they said they never even recieved any shipments. Tried EBGames and ToysRUs as well, nothing :(

    nope, Calgary, sorry!

    but yeah, my brother entered a raffel thing for the Wii (because Futureshop employees can't buy them, so they held a raffel to give 3 to 3 employees, they still have to buy them though.) hopefully not many other people enter, supposedly most of his co-workers bought ps3's.

    anyway, my dad doesnt want me to be camping out at 2 am...but...im gonna have to, somehow!

    Hey Swiftay,

    Are there going to be Wii's at Calgary Futureshops on Friday?
    If so then when are you planning to try to get there

    yes.

    i dunno, i planned to go at like 2 am originally, but its 6 am right now..and im leaving in half an hour, i think i'll be fine. The only problem is that i'm pretty sure it's one of those 'drop shipments' or something, meaning that they don't actually know exactly when it's going to be delivered to the store, it might be when it opens, it might be like right before it closes.

    Hey, does anyone know anything about retailers in Montreal? I've been calling like crazy and finally thought that I'd get one today, but the BB I went only had 8. I was like WTF, the other guy told me they'll have around 15-20. And Futureshop here doesn't know yet when they'll get some. Our awesome canadian Walmarts never freaking knows anything and that pisses me off.

    Errr, anyways, if any of you is still searching for a Zelda game, you can still order it at www.thesource.ca. I live in Montreal and it shipped in like 3 days LoL good luck everyone.

    Yea, I'm in Montreal also, and they really ain't got no love. I'm wondering if the employee could be lying on the phone. Maybe you have to go check in stores. Specially the future shop guys, it says on their website they got a shipment wednesday and that stores should have some in the coming days, so...

    Yeh on the Futureshop website it says that they'll get some on this week, but we're already friday. I just called and a guy said that he in fact receive a notice of shipping and doesn't know when he will receive them cuz he said that they are arriving in "special trucks" w/e that means -o-. Anyways, I can CONFIRM that in Montreal,

    Futureshop: Has received a total of 0 shipment lately not even on the 8th, maybe next week but doesnt know for sure
    Bestbuy: received a total of 8 wiis where I went (on the 8th)... And I think its the first time they receive some since the launch o_O
    Walmart: has no fckin clue. No wiis received on the 6th.
    Toysrus : still no wiis and "maybe" receiving some next week.

    I don't know what about EBgames and Lasource, it seems that I can't phone them-o- Can someone help me out with those 2>?

    Argg and so I thought Montreal was a "medium-big" city. No wiis here >(

    Guh, my parents have basically given up after TWO STORES didn't have any in, despite the fact that I'm paying for it!

    I tell my mom to go at 10AM to futureshop, 1PM she phones "I'm not going, this is pointless", WTF!?

    argh.

    so, seeing as how BestBuy got their shipment of Wii's in this morning, and were releasing upon opening, i assumed that Futureshop would be doing the same (seeing as how they are both owned by the same company). Damn i was wrong.

    Went down to Futureshop this morning at 5am to see if there was a line, and guess what!

    nothing.

    Went down to the Best Buy nearby, and there was a line of 40 people already.

    turns out Futureshop was gonna get the shipment in that afternoon at 1 instead of just before opening. Damn was i pissed. Especially since i knew the 1 oclock shipment wouldnt be on a first come first serve basis (raffle tickets...boo :().

    Anyway, does anyone know when the next shipment is due in? (to any store, mainly BB/Futureshop) Because none of the stores seem to know anything about the shipments, which truly pisses me off.

    Anyone?

    Quantities are a joke!

    Zellers only had 3 at one store and 5 at another.
    WHat a joke!
    EB games yesterday got ONE, yes that's right, ONE unit, and guess who was second in line?
    Best Buy on Friday had 27, I was number 30.
    I just do NOT understand the distribution of these things.
    I'm in Toronto

    Regards
    Ed
