    Well today three big stores pretty much revealed plans on the Wii launch days and I'll just say the ups and downs of each

    Walmart

    Advantages
    • Midnight Launch (for every 24 hour Wal-Mart)
    • Wait inside (warm and cozy)

    Disadvantages
    • Wal-mart's durttty :p
    • Might be longer lines

    Target

    Advantages
    • FREE SODA AND POPCORN 1 hour before store opens
    • Very organized (you fill out an order and check the accessory's and games you want)

    Disadvantages
    • Wait in the cold


    Best Buy

    Advantages
    • A lot in stock
    • Organized (tells you how much there going to get and other stuff while your in line)

    Disadvantages
    • Wait in the cold
    • Might be the biggest line

    I'm going to Best Buy. I went there for the Xbox 360 launch, and they were really organized. I got there with my Dad and Brother at about 8:00 and they were opening up at 10:00. They gave everybody in line a ticket and told everybody how many consoles they had in stock. Also, they allowed a min. 1 per household and if you sold your place in line to anybody, both you and the person you sold it to would be denied a chance to buy a system. Also, the people waiting were a blast to hangout with.

    Walmart or target, if all else fails,circuit city. its across the parking lot. Forget Bestbuy I dont support places that dont honor warranties. They can organize all they want, walmart is indoors, and target opens at 8 am.So if I happen to go brain dead on the 18th for the midnite lauinch, I can get up early on the 19th and pop in line at target.
