    i actually got one in my hands around 12:30AM after waiting at my local walmart for 6 hours. almost didn't get one either.

    When i got there, 28 people were already in line.... i was the 29th... they only had 28 Wii's. thought to myself "eeh.... i've got a friend or two waitin here too... least i'll have someone to talk to whether i get a Wii or not, and maybe someone will decide to leave, or have to go away for some emergency, or their credit card won't work so they can't pay for it...". As soon as i got there, the guys at the back of the line started playin Monopoly.... so i sat down and watched, talkin to them every once in a while. Turns out they were all friends of one of my other friends that was there. the one guy i was talkin to was actually only there to hold a spot for some other kid, who decided to leave at 2PM so he could eat pizza with his parents and go to some football game that ended around 9:30-10:00PM. Turns out the guy i was talkin to that was waiting in line got pissed at the kid cause like.... 10:30-11:00 was rolling around pretty fast.... so he was like "f*ck him, you can take his spot". Boy was that kid pissed when he finally showed up around 11:40PM. lol

    The only thing i don't like about it after playing with it for a short time is that aiming isn't done by aiming at the TV, but by aiming at the sensor bar, which winds up being relative to the TV. Unless that's something which will be fixed by an update.... which i'm not sure is possible..... still like it though. it's still extremely easy to target stuff once you get the crosshairs on screen (sometimes harder than it seems). basically requires the same amounts of movement as your regular computer mouse would to aim in a FPS.

    edit: and the sensor bar is nowhere near as big as i thought it would be, or that video's even showed it to be. it's probably about as long as the height of a DVD case... maybe a bit longer.... about half the thickness of a DVD case.... and a half an inch deep. PLENTY of space to squeak it in by a TV without it being TOO obtrusive.

    I will pre-order one for the launch in the UK, I'm really hyped for Zelda.
    It seems that a lot of people are in no rush to buy one, I guess that this is because they will be available in large numbers...I wonder what people would think if Nintendo had the same numbers as Sony?

    Wasn't able to get one today.. 70% of them were already pre-ordered.

    So I just ordered one and should receive it in the week of december 3. Not really in a rush.

    I have my new DDR for xbox coming this week to keep me busy :p

    where you at the wal-mart in poway? because, all that sounds oddly familar, i was the 16th person in line i waited a whole 14 and a half hours to get one. I almost got into a fight waiting in line. Wal-mart came out and said we were allowed to leave the line for 30 minutes to do what we please, get food use the restroom, etc. I had left for about 20 minutes to go grab some entertainment and a chair. When I came back I got back inline and someone from the back decided that I had cut and came up in got in my face and was cursing and telling me to get back to the back of the line. I must say this guy had balls walking up to me and my 2 friends which we were all bigger than him. Anyways, not wanting to get kicked out, I grabbed the security guard who I had been talking to before and the security guard told him if he kept it up he would be asked to leave or arrested.

    i bought

    The Wii
    I was only able to obtain a classic controller as they sold out of all the others before i got my turn
    Games I bought: Legend of Zelda, Red steel, Call of Duty 3, and my brother bought super monkey ball.

    I must say im having a BLAST playing all these games its amazing! so much fun.

    nope... WalMart in Lehighton, PA. and yes, they are fun to play. even most of the games in Wii Sports. Boxing get's a tad odd sometimes... Tennis and baseball are EXCELLENT! haven't tried golf yet.... and bowling is also a tad odd sometimes.

    1 answer, YOU DONT HAVE TO ****ING FLAIL YOUR ARMS ALL OVER THE PLACE, Ya know how you use that thing called a mouse? Its just as sensitive or in fact more sensitive than that.

    And Sorry Im just tired of people being so ignorant about how the damn controller works.

    nutyo.... i was thinking the EXACT same thing.

    rogue: supposedly Red Steel is kinda glitchy. i haven't played it yet, but from the videos.... have to admit, it doesn't seem that bad for a launch day FPS.

    afunguy: as Inf said..... if you think you gotta flail around all over the place to play, you're ignorant as hell. 80% of the movements you would ever have to do can be done by just moving your wrist. no full-arm movement is required.... just usually makes it more fun.
