Glad I pre-ordered from Gamestop!
Not to be the bad guy here, but it could be that the demand is not there for the Wii. Hence the availability.
Either way, friggin' A.
A shame the launch ones are all white or I'd be there on Sunday.
I pre-ordered. All I needed to hear was "guaranteed"
looks like Ima makin a midnight run and playin Zelda all night! maybe all day too
Nah, plenty of demand. They just have many, many, many more units than Sony. Plus most stores took less than 20 pre-orders, with most stores getting more than 25 units.
To play the other side, it could very well just be greater supply, or, hey, a combo of the two.
Did you see the line ups at E3? there is plenty of demand for the Wii
I know plenty of people with demand. Myself included
That's kinda like saying air is so readily available to us because no one wants to breathe.
the demand is there, it's just that unlike sony, the supply is a lot better
that aint true here.....at one store, one of the clerks were saying that they were suppose to get in 19 systems, but only half of that will actually get there on launch. So only 10 will be getting theirs....as to who, that they dont know, they gotta ask the main bossman about that.
Call it what you will, but no one's camping for a week to purchase a Wii.
my local gamestop isn't doing the midnight thing... which sucks... because now Devz is going to text me all fucking NIGHT saying how awesome it is and taunting me...
I hate you Devz! I HATE YOU!!!!!
And dont know where this originally came from or if this is newer/older news but:
and this co-insides with the post i did a few minutes ago.
Could have something to do with there being over a million consoles shipped for launch. maybe.
There's plenty of demand for the Wii, but this is one of those rare occasions that supply meets the demand.
Nobody said the Sony fanboys were smart.
In seriousness though, when shortages are expected of something they want, people line up for it. When it's expected that there will be plenty, they don't have to line up. This is why Sony faked a PS2 shortage five years ago.
and why microsoft did the same thing with the 360. that was pretty easy to spot as fake after it was revealed that they had a huge supply to do immediate replacements with.
Poll at Gamefaqs about which console people want.
31% - PS3
13% - 360
50% - Wii
4% - None
You mean that there will be plenty of consoles at launch??! Thats unpossible!!!! I must call shenanigans on you sir! You're clever ruse has failed!!
That being said, Im glad I preordered at Gamestop. Now I just need to bring a bat or something so that I have enough security to get my Wii home safely
