    Well, pre-ordered. Along with Zelda and Red Steel... and a second controller. Stood online for an hour and was 18th online. Some guy had been standing online since 6 AM. Another guy showed up 15 minutes after the store opened and all 35 people who got the "thanks for being a lifeless dork, you can pre-order" ticket was going around trying to bride one of us to hand over our ticket. When everyone said no:

    "**** you all. I hope this store burns with all of you in it. Die you sons of bitches! It's a ****ing video game, losers! NINTENDO SUCKS! I'm going to pre-order the PS3 instead!"

    This is where we all pointed at the BIG sign that said "We are no longer taking pre-orders for the PS3" and the poor guy sulked off... hopefully to crash into a truck carrying cancer.

    Now, I just have to get my PS2 and cube disconnected to trade those in to help reduce the final price on the Wii...why do I feel like I'm playing Magic the gathering? "Sacrifice two systems to summon Wii"

    Whats the final price going to be? I heard that it might be cheaper than the other systems.

    I got mine this morning. Very ashamed I was the first person there (me = geek). Showed up at 6:20 am, with temps in the low 30s and 35 mph winds. A very fun wait. The next guy showed up at 7:30, then two people @ 8:30, then 1 more guy right at 9 when they opened the store. They had 12 available for reserve. My wife and I went ahead and paid for the system itself and we have the following on preorder:

    Zelda
    Red Steel
    Trauma Center Second Opinion
    an extra controller (both parts)
    512 MB memory card

    Merry Christmas to us (yes, it's our Christmas gift to each other :D  My wife rocks).

    Went to my first store at 8:45. Waited for 30 min. 9:15 the employee comes in, and tells us (myself and the other 2 guys waiting) "Sorry, we don't have any more preorders". WTF? The store wasn't even OPEN yet. Grrr.

    Store #2: Healthy line of about 9 people. I walk up, woman at the back tells me they've given out all their "numbers" for the pre-order.

    Store #3: 12 people lined up. I ask if they still have room for people. Ding! I was #13, about 10 more people showed up after me, and also got their pre-orders.

    Man, I can't wait for Nov. 19th.

    Got mine preordered! I was not able to go perorder myself as I had class from 9-12, but my mom was cool enough to go to the Gamestop and stand in line for me. :D  I later went to the Gamestop myself and preordered Zelda. Paid $50 for the Wii preorder itself, and $53 for Zleda (paid for Zelda in full). So Im feeling good now. I got #22 for the Wii itself, and so hopefully my store gets all their stuff in.


    Interesting thing: When the system itself was preordered, my store didnt have the Wii SKU, so on my reciept, it says Microsoft Zune. But when I went there to preorder Zelda later in the day, they said that they had got the sku and moved my preorder to the Wii. So all should be good :p

    Does anyone know if K-Mart is getting any on launch day? I was planning on getting one this year but I had to go half on a car and with Transformers still number 1 on the must have list I may wait unless K-Mart gets them and I can use my Sears card.
