Nintendo Wii

Since this is a popular subject I thought it deserved it's own place.

Beating the spam filter is always fun. ^_^

Yeah, the last I know the new Phoenix Wright comes out in January. I've been in the local Game Stop 5 times now since the end of July to pre-order it and they STILL aren't taking pre-orders. (although the web site says you can order it.... :roll:) I'll just keep trying.... *sigh*

By the way, the guys that work in one of our local game stores says the Phoenix Wright is available for order through Capcom direct now (because of the demand for it). Bastards.... I kept e-mailing them about that too and since no one would answer I ended up having to buy it on e-bay. :evil:

We are #1!!

Well, at least we were first in line at the local Game Stop for a Wii pre-order. Now I know if I don't get one something fishy is going on.

I work at an EB

EB Games/GameStop stores are gewtting in a total of 36 units for launch

but the thing is each store is allowed 4 employee purchases, so you could say about 32 per store which is twice as good as PS3 which get a max of 16 per store or 6 depending on store size

The store I pre-ordered my Wii at took a total of 14 preorders, so I guess they're only getting half as much since they're not in a mall.

Well that would explain why the guy said he had 36 and then no, make that 32 now... I wondered what he meant by that. Either way, we better get ours since we were first in line, if they run out before they get to us there is something wrong with that picture....

They HAD to do it on a day that I work, so I couldn't get one. Now, I found out that Toys R Us had them Yesterday, while I was on the way home from Rhode Island. Even if I had KNOWN about it before then, I would not have been anywhere near one to Get it, so it is back to "Camp Out at Best Buy on the Night of the Eighteenth, as they do not take Pre Orders, so they should have some in the Store. By the way, the EB Games at the Mall in Concord had only Fourteen Pre Orders as well. I should ask them if they have any set aside for Non Pre Orders.

I've got my Wii... Who else has theirs?
Anyone else have some "famous" Mii's show up recently?
Anyone care to share their friends code so the Mii's can mingle? Unfortunately I can't get to my code at the moment... I'll post it this evening.

Edit:12/9/06 - 9:21am
OK... so it wasn't in the evening...
My code: 3905-3913-6151-9309
