Default Wii's this sunday if you need one

http://www.joystiq.com/2007/01/17/su...-promise-wiis/

Looks like local retailers will be getting them. I don't know if I am willing to line up early to get one though.

I was just having fun at his expense...dont take it personally my friend!!

Guess what I was looking through my Xmas greeting cards before throwing them out and one of my cousins had put in a $100 Target gift card in one of them. Guess I might swing by Target this weekend just to use it

I have been busy (or hungover) the last few times that retailers got their stock of Wii's in, but I finally got mine this morning. It was actually a pretty epic quest.

Left for Target and got there 5 minutes after 9 am (when they opened) and they were already all sold out. I kinda lost heart there and went to IHOP to catch some breakfast. I went to Borders afterwords seeing as I needed to pick up a book anyways and spent some time browsing around in there. Around 10:30ish I decided to move onwards and check other stores anyways.

The local Best Buy didn't open untill 11 so I was still crossing my fingers. I pull up and there was a line of at least 50 people, and they had already passed out tickets at 6 am. No luck there. About two stores down was a Game Stop, which also had about a 20 person line, more people than Wii's already at least. I kinda hung out for a while at each store just to see what went down. A lot of kids got their Wii's and were uber excited about it, which was cool.

Out next to the Borders is an EB games, so I decided to stop there next. I pulled up and no one was to be found so I thought I got lucky. Nope; they'd be giving away tickets for them all week and drew a raffle this morning (what the hell?). Still not giving up I went to the local Wal-Mart, whom claimed not to have gotten any, or had any in stock at least, which was a downer.

At this point I had almost given up, but remembered that there was another Game Stop in the mall, so I thought what the hell and decided to check it out. Walked into the mall and the store is empty except for 2 customers at the counter. I thought I was out of luck and that they'd sold out already untill an employee walked out of the back with a Wii and started ringing it up for the couple in front of me. 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.
