    Got mine from gamestop on launch day. My Brother-in-law wanted one and was going to camp out for it so I asked him to snag me one too.

    I bought my Wii from GameStation on Launch day.

    No que...and I was also first on the Pre-Order list.

    They were like "Oh, your a bit late. You might have to wait until the next shipment." *checks list* "Oh, your right at the top! Ill just go get it for you!"

    I was so happy at the time. Now it's gone :D

    It would be kind of wierd if you were in the same line as me. I'm from Cincinnati, Ohio. Then again that would still be a little stretch I guess.

    I spent a week looking for it in december, and I looked on and off the two weeks prior too. But finally went to target off a tip from wiiseeker and they had like 9-16, can't remember. Was second or third in line. There wasn't anyone else behind the three of us who were there.

    Toys R Us I had mine.

    Looked EVERYWHERE for it since launch day, (I was too late to pre-order)

    Happened to be in there x-mas shopping with my boyfriend when I asked the guy behind the counter if they'd had a delivery that week (I heared they were)

    He said 'a lory is pulling up RIGHT now with wii's, like right this MINUTE,' and then he told us to go back to the games area to get a ticket in about 5-10 mins.

    Well we could only buy it in a bundle worth like £250 ish, and I didn't have that much on me. Soooo I took back the things I just bought, my boyfriend took back the presents he just bought aswell. Then he ran to the nearest hole in the wall and got ALL the money out in his account (£70 lol)

    We counted everything up and we were £2.00 off lol, so the guy that worked there who gave us the ticket lent us £2.00!!

    While we were trying to get the money I phoned my mother who wasn't ansering her mobile and I phoned my step-father who said he couldn't come over because he was 'ill'. Then my boyfriend tried phoning his aunty and fair play she tried to pay for us over the phone but they wouldn't let her.

    Well we'd JUST payed for it and we were waiting to be given my wii when his aunty text my boyfriend to say she was on her way over to lend us some money. THEN my mother text me and said she'd come over to give me money.

    So we were standing outside Toys R us with the wii in hand when my mother and his aunty pulled up and we we're like..'sorry..we got it,'. lol. we couldn't text them or phone them back cos we'd used up all our money phoning them.

    Ooooh well :D And sorry for the length of this!

    I have bought 3 Wii's so far. Mine was bought in late January at the local Game stop. The second two were bought last Sunday 3/4 at the local Target - they are for my nephew and godchildren.

    I took a gamble and bought mine off eBay as no where has any, not even taking new pre orders.
