Nintendo News | Strong Wii Stock Supply for Europe

By Adam Riley 29.11.2006 37

A huge shipment of Nintendo's new system, Wii, has now arrived in Europe ahead of launch on December 8th and with an unprecedented number of pre-orders having been taken, it is likely that there will be exceptional demand for the system when it goes on sale in Europe.

Nintendo is doing their utmost to replenish stocks and ensure that as many people as possible who want to experience Wii, can do so in time for Christmas. But the message for shoppers is clear

Oh and trauma centre?

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

Trauma Center isn't a launch title. Also, how much news wants to be posted inside an hour, eh?

Also also, if you haven't preordered, go to random places like Asda, Tesco etc. They might be stocked up.

I'm very sad. Very. Those of you lucky enough to live NOT IN CORNWALL will probably be able to go to a midnight release. Wish I could say the same for me. Apparantly the GAME I preordered mine from is opening at 7:00AM SPECIALLY.

Wow. I have to wait an extra 7 hours. What fun. I won't even have Yoshi's Island 2 by then, since I'm not spending any money until I get a Wii Smilie

Oh well, I guess I'm one of the lucky people who managed to secure a good preorder... Smilie

I am starting to get worried if i will get my Wii on launch because my GAME are only guaranteeing before Christmas and i am only 14 on my list.

"only 14th"? Smilie You're certain to get one in that case! Most GAME shops will get above 50 I reckon!

I'm 26th, so if you're implying I won't get my Wii, then you've made yourself a powerful..... well... weak enemy today... Smilie

HMV phoned me up about an hour ago telling me that i'm guranteed one on launch and i'm 16 on their list. Smilie.

I was going to preorder in Gamestation, but I would have been 147th. Fuck, stroll in on the 8th and just pick one up...

Gamestation told me that if it was pre-ordered before 9th Nov then you're assured of one by at least 9th Dec...if that's any help Smilie

'Cos maybe, like my friend, you couldn't be bothered to wake up in the morning the preorders started & rush down to GAME? Smilie

Infact you couldn't be bothered to preorder at all? Thought Amazon would sort you? Smilie

Well, maybe not, but my friend did Smilie

Well,,,yeah, that may be true but surely i can get one this year!?

PS not only was i tooo lazy to get out of bed but i wanst sure if icould afford it or not...damn indecisiveness....

No there is no spoon

Wow. I have to wait an extra 7 hours. What fun

Lucky! I have to wait for Parcel Force to deliver it while I am not even in the house. By the time I get back from College and play it, it will be 17.30.

I don't think people will have to wait that long after those who preordered for consoles. Even so I don't think the really good games are comign out for launch anyway so I am willing to wait. Who knows, there may even be talk of a black version.

Woooooooo!!!

lol, I pre-ordered but now I've found there's not much point...turns out that I can't afford any launch games...so I hope Wii Sports is playable enough to keep me occupied. =D

ok, would somebody Please tell me Now if i can get a wii this yearSmilieSmilie

No there is no spoon

I thought that lining up woudln't be needed but USA just proved me wrong...I can't believe it all ran out. I thought It'd be possible to just walk in on an afternoon and get one...

Smilie i was 5th on the list.. when i preordered from GAME.. and i didnt go the day they asked me to pay the

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Better to ask the game shop if they will give one. From my knowledge they will be a bit tight and only give to those who have pre-ordered first. Fist you might have an Asda or Tesco which is open 24 hours in your area they would be unlikely suspects for a launch. If they are open 24 hours then they would be able to sell the Wii at midnight on the Thursday/Friday Morning.
