    Ebay:
    So I need to be within the first 20 in line at Wal-Mart for my Wii...Good info to have since that is where I plan on camping out at, so I can get it at midnight and wait indoors rather than wait outside Target or BB early in the morning out in the cold.

    More than likely Electronics Checkout, but I can double check.

    I can't imagine that they would bother with putting the systems in the case since they will be sold within minutes.

    Deefuz, Walmart expects a MINIMUM of 20 Wii units, I strongely suspect that there will be more than that given the recent news of the console's production. But we won't know how many units until at least the day before

    At a regular store where they arent open 24/7 you had to line up at the front of the building and then a couple hours before the store opened they came around and handed out numbers to people based on where they stood in line. I guess that way it would make sure people wouldnt just jump ahead later and get somebody elses console.

    Mind you this was for the 360 launch and here in canada the stores open at 8am so I dont know how it is with other stores in the US.

    When I was in line for a X-Box 360 the line was at the front of the store at customer service. That would be my guess as to where the line for the PS3 and Wii will be.
