    Well, after hearing the amazing news on the Wii, I am psyked for the Wii!

    Bad news for me though...

    I called Gamestop (The video game store), I am friends with a lot of the employees there (Probably because I go there weekly for Wii updates) and they said they aren't going to be taking reserves for the Wii! I already have Twilight Princess and Red Steel fully payed for an reserved! Why wont they takes reserves for the Wii!

    Even worse news, I have school on the 19th...So they'll be sold out by the time I get there!

    What do I do?!?!

    What?! I'm seriously upset if your Gamestops are doing pre-orders already! I went to mine earlier this afternoon, and they said they won't start pre-orders for Wii until November 14th....

    This sucks.

    the reason you cant reserve is the fact that the game strores dont know how many wiis they will get.

    Gamestops expect to get unit allocations after the annual manager conference, which is at the end of this month. I'd look for reserves to begin in the first couple of weeks in oct.

    ok im officialy pissed. game crazy main office said no to preorders so the manager at my gamecrazy said he would make up his own preorder system secretly. well the owner found out and stopped them :( . this sucks. now i gotta find somewhere else to preorder :(

    EDIT: im not sure if i should go up at midnight and wait all night or if i should preorder. there was a final number of 92 people on the preorder-preorder list at gamecrazy which is INSANE because i live in a small town and about 80% of the people here think video games are kiddish or only like PS2. the PS3 only has 20 preorders so far! the manager of game crazy was shocked at how much the nintendo wii is wanted lol

    Just skip school. Or you could just go to walmart at midnight and get one. Then you will still be able to go to school.
