    This is what it says on this website Preorder Wii - The Latest Info on Preordering Wii's

    here is the part that scares me

    You need to preorder your Nintendo Wii Console and Games now. Or else
    don't expect to get one before christmas, or even until this spring. Even if
    you don't receive your Wii on launch date, you should still preorder your Wii
    as merchants could be backed up until a couple of months after release.

    true, but if you wont get 1 on launch, then you might have to wait until spring!

    That site is a pure affiliate code site. All the links to the merchants include referral codes.

    I would take any information you read from sites like that with a grain of salt - ofcourse they want you to buy through their links :)

    ok, then i will ignore it............... I am so nervous/anxcious about getting 1. My best/only shot is going to walmart at 4am sunday, do i have a chance? 3 hour early.. Thats what i cannot figure out, if there would be a lot of people.... If there is then i try costco which opens at 10 so if its crazy at walamrt ill be at costco 5-6 hours early.... AHHHHHHHHHHHHH, then the big question

    I have no idea what happens if i dont get 1 at launch... No 1 knows when the next batch comes in and WOULD IT be a crazy line like how its going to be at launch? ( please answer what you think for this tiny paragraphy, this is driving me nuts lol)

    your wrong there buddy
    1 million at launch
    and i believe another 3 or 4 million by the end of december
    last time i checked thats not spring....

    you should be fine, 1 million units at launch has been basically unheard of for a game console, just get up a early and go to the store just to be safe, so you should be all good!

    There are dozens of factors in that. Where do you live? How many people live there? How many units are they getting? Is it a super wal-mart? If not when does it open?

    Well when I got gamecube I remember I got it at a wal-mart that opened at 7 and I got there right at 7 and I was still one of the first to get one. And that was a town of about 6,000 people. I'd assume you wil be fine. Don't panic.

    You just gotta do your research, call the places, and get there at a decent time, and you got a Wii on launch.

    my near 24hr walmart informed me of the 360s midnight launch and people started showing up at 10pm that night... Im going to play it safe, check out my walmart at 12 in the afternoon on Saturday, get my info, make friendly with that nights manager, run a Wii UPC in their stock counter, and if a line has begun with the number of people below the stock number, ill jump in... or establish one if one hasnt started yet.

    that simple

    I'm quite anxious about getting my Wii. I'll be checking out Walmart first. If there's a ton of people i got Best buy (~80), target (69), Compusa (<25), Toys R' Us (<25), Circuit City (~25).

    So far, we have received this information from Nintendo and video game
    merchants about the upcoming Ninyyendo Wii Launch, Wii Prices, and Wii
    Availability .

    This is a very reliable site:crazy:
