    How'd you get your Wii?

    I thought it might be fun to post a thread where people could come and talk about the lengths they went to to get a wii. I personally waited from 11pm Thursday evening to 5am on Black Friday to get one at Toys'R'Us. Then once The store opened they forced people to buy atleast three games with their Wii's stating it was a store policy, which I still think is B.S.. So If you've got an interesting story about how you obtained your wii, or just want brag that you even got one, then here's a place to do it!

    If Wii shipments come in during my winter break, I will go early. Then I'll brag. Hopefully after Christmas there won't be a big lineup either!

    I used to think 5 hours was crazy until I found out some people were waiting 12 hours. I waited 6 hours in the rain and missed out by 2 people. Curse The shortage! lol

    thats really sweet. i left as soon as i got mine so i couldn't see the disappointment on other people's faces who waited but didnt get one. Im sure you were laughing it up in all of their faces. hahaha.

    lol....that sounds like my friend. He is the type to just stand up, not say anything and wait for hours at a time lol. Quite crazy indeed.

    I read on a website that somone had just purchased one from the Source near my home while I was at work. I called my wife immediately and told her to run to the mall and buy me one. She did, and even came back with an extra wiimote and numchuk.
