    From the Playstation forums:

    I asked my local Gamestop tonight and the manager confirmed tomorrow at 10:00 AM. Damn shame I have to work.

    The Wii is being released next month. I certainly hope they're taking pre-orders...

    Yeah, I went in to preorder a Wii at Game Stop yesterday. The only thing the are letting people preorder is software and then that will put your name of a call list to reserve a Wii. But that doesn't guarantee you'll get a preorder in as those will be first come, first serve. There were probably about 40 names ahead of mine on the list. I put $10 down on Twilight Princess.

    By chance I was at EB today. I was there asking about the PS3 and they also confirmed that tomorrow morning they will be taking the first preorders. Yay!

    Not many to go around= about 8 per store, 16 for the higher volume ones.
    No Wii preorders yet, but this week, Wed, Thur or Fri. $50 down on that one.

    Not that it really needed any more confirmation, but I also received the email from EB/Gamestop tonight that also stated that LIMITED preorders would be taken tomorrow at 10 AM on a first come first serve basis. Good luck to all who want one!

    I didn't get one. I got to a smaller store by my work about 30 minutes before openning. They had 8 preorders and 2 went to employees. I was the 7th person in line.

    That's bullshit that the employees got 2 of 8. Not much you can do, I guess.

    how much units did the DS have at launch...Gamestop only had enough for the people who reserved, but Fred Meyers had enough (seeing that they dont do reservations)

    which brings up, what about stores like Target, Wal-Mart, Fred Meyers, Best Buy...will they get any??? (Target already has a big sign taking up shelf space about PS3 coming soon and same with the Wii)

    I went to get my DS at Target on launch morning. They had about 20 units and I was about 16th through the door.
