    No Wii for me
    Well, I figured maybe I'd get lucky and since my town had a wal-mart and a k-mart that I would be able to find oen this morning...no luck, every town around me was sold out and my wal-mart only got in 20. That sucks, I thought they were supposed to ship 5x the amount of the PS3's?

    I got to Target last night at 11pm and I was #23 of 60. The Wii is awesome.

    Don't give up hope yet. Check amazon.com and bestbuy.com. Nintendo shipped 1 million at launch and planned on having 2 million in the US by the end of the year.

    The demand for the Wii was unexpectedly HUGE. I knew it would be good, but I didn't expect people to go nuts like the handful of people that managed to get a PS3.

    Fortunately I decided a while back to hold off on buying a Wii until next year. Besides, I dropped a big load of cash buying this MacBook Pro.

    People knew they wouldn't be able to get the PS3, so they go and get the other option. Personally i don't like the idea of spending so much in a PS3 or X-Box 360, however i would buy a Wii. The price seems right to me, and it is in stock, somewhere...

    I was fortunate. I went to two Targets, a Best Buy and a Circuit City. No one had any. I then decided to go to EB games in the mall hoping they had extras (they didn't). As i was waiting for EB to open a kid came up and was telling me how he camped out at Wal Mart for 3 days to get his Wii at midnight. I was thinking to myself "then why in the heck are you here?" He tells me that he pre ordered one at EB and that i could take over his pre order if i wanted to. I said heck yea and when the store opened i paid for it and he gave me the Wii. He didn't ask for anything in return but i got him a game since he was nice enough to let me take over his pre order. There was about 4 people who were waiting in line behind me when the guy said they didnt have any extras, only pre orders. As they left i was thinking, "Man did i got here at the right time."
