    Just write down what you did to get the wii simple as that.

    I gave up thanksgiving and waited in a line for 22 hours without sleep. I got so bored I found out you can draw on sidewalks with acorns.

    Logged on to Amazon.co.uk at 9am, refreshed the page for about 45 minutes until they finally put them up, then pre-ordered one very fast ;)

    Gave up getting a X1950XT for my computer, put the money into the Wii, some games and a bus ticket so I can travel the 1300km to pick it up from the store (It is one of my closest EB's :yesnod:) Was going to get it sent out, but thought I would visit the folks in Brisbane for Christmas as well - kill two birds with one stone so to speak.

    I pre ordered mine at woolworths - meaning that I will still need to be at the store for opening to ensure the dumb ass staff don't get confused and sell my copy. And to ensure that they haven't over-sold their pre orders so I'll need to wait for the second wave...

    God woolworths? Wtf was I thinkin.? Anyone in the uk will tell you how bad they suck. Its like a mini (mini) wal-mart of the 70s (Which has changed little from the 70s). will be suprised if I get my wii hassle-free

    The worst part was that I had to go to college at like 9:40. They put them up right when I was about to leave, so I was very lucky.

    I was lucky to get a Pre Order in at a local gamespot. I decided to swing by about 10 minutes before the store opened, and was lucky #9. The only reason there was a #9 was because the manager of the store didn't want his right away.... so I was lucky #9..... didn't have to wait in line for more than 5 minutes...

    #1 Wii was a preorder.

    #2 Wii I went to Best Buy on Launch day at 8:30am and bought some kids ticked for $200. Dude waited in line for 12hrs in the cold lol.

    #3 Wii I merely walked into EB games on black friday at 11:30am and bought the last one.

    cant remember if it was 9 or 11

    I called Gamestop at 9:15 on the day of pre-orders. They were taking 9 pre-orders and had 6 people in line (for 10am opening). I left work, drove 80 mph to get there at 9:25 and got pre-order #8. They opened early, and I was back at work by 10am.

    Ok, now I'm scared! Is Woolworths really bad? I've pre ordered my brothers Wii from there-paid in full! The only reason I've ordered it with them is 'cos PC World sold out.
    I've never pre ordered anything before-should I have gone to HMV instead?:ee5k:

    i pestered my local game store managers into a preorder dealie (and baked them cookies on launch night/morning). exploiting loopholes is AWESOME.
