    On the 7th of December the Wii will be released in Australia. I live in Australia and have preordered the Wii stuff i was after. It has been arranged by EB for a 12:01AM purchase spree on the thursday, the 7th of the release. According to the store owners of my local EB people are going crazy in wait and they have allready sold out all their stock via preorder and have had many people promising to show for the Wiis midnight release. I was curious as to how other people in other countries found this experiance and wheather or not i should pack a cricket bat :p

    dam, yeah im gonna laugh at the poor saps who dont preorder and miss out, eb in hoppers crossing vic, sold out of both wii's and twilight princess luckily ive preordered and paid for both, as long as they dont sell out of tekanichi 2... ( not really a big deal if they do for me but it would be a nice extra ) ill be happy

    Yes, my EB today also stopped taking pre-orders for anything Wii-related. Which sucks, cause I'll have to get there early and take the front of the line, so I can buy the first load of nunchucks and wiimotes before they sell out.

    Also, I hate to tell you, but DBZ Tenkaichi 2 is not a launch title. I also thought it was, but now they tell me that both that, and Excite Truck, are no longer launch titles for Aus. Seems stupid since they were launch titles in America, and one of them is made by Nintendo. Australian Wii gamers are getting stiffed again. As per usual.
