Just read the first page of this topic and you'll get the idea. There is more then I can summarize in here.

Gods in His Heaven. Alls right in the World.

Im 48th on the list at Gamestation, what i need is some charts or assumtions of how many units will be going out to stores, and even better what stores.

Please god dont give all the units to Game!!!

It's looking like there will be major UK shortages...

Gods in His Heaven. Alls right in the World.

Just go somewhere where hardcores don't tend to shop much, like Woolies and Tesco.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

I feel kinda glad that they're not releasing any decent games or the black Wii until next year now (They fecking BETTER)... I can just sit back and relax...

Was just reading the exact same topic on teh GAF there now, i can't believe the Wii is toping the lists of places like PC World and Comet.

Good news for Nintendo the Wii will proabably have sold more units than the 360 by March

I'm lucky, because my nearest game is in a skanky shopping aracde in the middle of nowhere. Walked in a few days after they started taking orders, and still walked away with position #8 in the queue.

Heh, I'm number 5 on my local Game store's list...and I'll be there when the store opens (just in case of first come first serve) but they only took pre-orders for a day or two, so hopefully they didn't take any more pre-orders than they can fuffil.

I've pre-ordered on Gameplay.com but I haven't recieved any emails saying I'm going to get mine at launch yet.

Might put another in at Amazon when they start taking pre-orders. (When the hell will they do that?)

I pre-ordered mine with Littlewoods, guarunteed a console before Chrimbo Smilie

I'll be doing the camping thing at a wal-mart, fun yea!

Gods in His Heaven. Alls right in the World.

lol, I doubt that there'll be anyone camping outside of the shops where I live...well...hope not anyway. =S

I'm 44th in the GAME pre-order List and still got my flashy card saying i'm guaranteed one.

But then again, when I last checked they were up to 489 in pre-orders. It's the Main GAME shop in Liverpool, so I can imagine them getting a decent 75+.

Do you really think it will be first come first serve on the day Wes? If so it'll be hard convincing the parents that i'm taking the day off college.

If its anything like the 360 launch, consoles will go to whoever buys the most accessories.

GAME said they wouldn't give them out on a first come first serve basis...instead giving them out in order of pre-order...I'm just turning up for the shop opening just in case...can't be too careful...

I ordered my Wii within the first 30 minutes of Gameplay taking pre-orders.

I've pre-ordered on Gameplay.com but I haven't recieved any emails saying I'm going to get mine at launch yet.

I haven't and nobody else on the Gameplay forums have either so nothing to worry about yet.

360 Gamertag: shiptoncraig
PSN: shiptoncraig
Steam: Guess what?

GAME said they wouldnt give them out on a first come first serve basis...instead giving them out in order of pre-order...Im just turning up for the shop opening just in case...cant be too careful...

------------

So ... as long as they have a X number of consoles, they can only hand out to the people who have pre-ordered within the X boundary?

The only reason I won't take the morning off is because it'd mean convincing my dad to come with me on launch day. I may be 17, but like shite am I carrying a limited quantity Nintendo Wii through the streets of Liverpool, 3 weeks before christmas.

xD I have a friend near Liverpool, I've heard storys about it...so yeah, I wouldn't like to be carrying something like that around.

Hmm, it'd be good if you could check with the store you bought it obviously, but when I pre-ordered I asked the guy if they'd have a midnight opening (which they won't) and that if they had X units they'd give it out to the first X that pre-ordered. I'd check with the store near you though just to make sure it's the same there, and of course assuming he had his facts right. Smilie

Hahaha, had the same problem with my Xbox 360, the shop assistance handed it me and said "Would you like me to put it in a bin bag so noone knows what it is".

Carry what looks like trash all the way home OR risk getting mugged and my
