    how i did not get a wii

    I tried to get a Wii, unsuccessfully. I wokeup at 6:30 am and went over to Target and was 16th in line but found out (after an over an hour in line) they only had 15 Wii's. I then proceded to go to the mall where they had 2 Gamestops inside. They didn't have anything so I went to check Sears, Fye Music, Specs Music, Radioshack, Bestbuy, Compusa, Walmart, Kmart, Samsclub, Bj's, Circuit City and then 2 more Gamestops. I spent hours driving around all day and was unsuccesful. That's 16 stores LOL.

    It really made me sad. Since then I've called all those stores back and a few others in the cities next to me and haven't gotten lucky. Over the course of 3 days 've spent a few hours doing that. I hear Walmart will have a bunch on dec 6 so I'll be trying to get one there. Wish me luck guys.

    oh man I wan't one so bad

    Tough luck. Hope you get it next time.
    At least the Wii is being produced and shipped at a good rate. As long as you put in some effort like you are now, I'm pretty sure you can get one before the end of the year.

    What really frustrates me is the display boxes....at the right angle they appear to be actual wii units and I flip out lol. The first time I saw one I picked it up off the shelf and shook it a few times just to be sure lol.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I hate when stores do that. Keep entering those contests I have been posting and you never know. You just may end up winning one instead.

    Good luck with the search, I'm sure you'll get your hands on a wii eventually.

    Display wii boxes are a cruel injustice to the wii-less!!

    Oh man that really stinks.
    It seems like a lot of people are always getting the 16th place in line when there are only 15 Wii's.

    Good luck finding one.

    No problem dude, you are a machine when it comes to the contests...If judgement day ever comes I will be behind you while you take on the T-1000 (I am not sure if that was dreadfully lame or a little clever lol)
