I live in canada, and the preorders begin on monday. I am 16 years old, and plan on going with my friend, he is 16 years old as well.

we are both bringing 200+ dollars, and we are going really early

what i am wondering is the following:

1. What is required to preorder the system... someone said an ID? other than the 50 or 200 deposit... anything that i would need my parents there for? we will have the money, its just if theres something else required to preorder, i wana know to plan before monday :)

2. Finally, on the EBgames website it says that the wii and ps3 orders start monday... and it goes on to say that only 1 preorder per household. Does this mean only one preorder per household, either ps3 or wii? or is it one preorder per system per household, where you can preorder both, but just once :) thanks alot!
If you have 50 bucks, you got yourself a Wii. Nothing else is required.

And it is 1 system per household. IE you can preorder a Wii and a PS3, but not two Wii's.

oh ok thanks alot, that puts my mind at rest hehe... monday shall be a success, and another thing...

i am going to an EB in a mall close to my house. The mall opens at 7, EB opens within the mall at 10. My friend and i are going to be there at 6:00 AM just in case there is a line at the mall... do you guys think 6:00AM is early enough? i mean once the mall doors open its first to get to the EB and line up there gets 1st in line... anyone preorder at a store in the mall have any input?
1. Here's what EBGames requires of Canadians:

2. I don't believe you need a parent to reserve a console. You generally only need a parent if you're buying a mature-rated game.

Hope that helped.:)
