I asked if they had any more and he said they still had a couple. I laughed a little and said that I would love one.

The funny part about this is that all of these stores are within a 1.5 mile radius of each other. Not even exaggerating. It was absolutely INSANE everywhere else to get one, and I walked in and bought one 30 minutes after the store opened. It was just a wild stroke of luck I guess, but awesome nonetheless. I'm just happy I got a Wii.
Heh, this is similar to what happened when I bought mine (Black Friday). From what I understood from other people who were waiting outside EB with me, there were tremendous lines outside all the standalone stores. But they didn't sell out as quickly at the mall. From what I heard later, they were gone in about 30 minutes as opposed to the "outside" locations that sold out within the first 5 of opening.

In any case, congrats on the purchase. What games did you buy?
