Too bad that wasn't how it worked at my CC. Apparently vouchers were given out on launch day to people who didn't get them. The vouchers were good for the next shipment of Wii's. 15 people had the launch day vouchers and 9 people got the vouchers for this shipment by camping out last night.

Just a bump for tomorrow's Wal-Mart Wii availability:

If you have a 24-hour Wal-Mart, you might want to check around 10 p.m. tonight to make sure they aren't selling them at 12:01 just after midnight tonight. Other stores are listing 8 a.m.

My nearby 24-hour Super Wal-Mart also have the "We may have Wii's for sale at 8 a.m. Dec. 6, 2006" signs near the cash registers and in the video game section for Wii games, so I asked if they were going to hand out numbers/vouchers for the sale tomorrow, and they said they were just going to put some chairs out in the Lay-away area and people could wait for them there. Unfortunately I had to go back to work, so I guess I'll check back around 11 p.m. tonight to see how many folks are already in chairs as the manager said there were only 28-30 Wii's in stock for the sale tomorrow. I may try showing up around 6 a.m. and hoping to get a spot in line if there isn't a long line around midnight already.

Some people have had luck in going to the electronics department and asking for a number/voucher for tomorrow's shipment of Wii's, so it can't hurt to ask early!

I picked one up for my nephew Sunday at Target. It was 25 degrees when I got there at 3:50AM to wait. Other people started showing up around 4:15. Did I mention it was 25 degrees outside? We all sat in our cars staring at each other until 6:30 when I decided to make the first move and asked an employee going in to work if she could check and see if the Wiis had arrived. She said yes and told me I could start a line if I wanted. A minute or two later, she returned and said they had 18 systems in and they would give out tickets at 7:30. Within 5 minutes, there were 7 of us there, adding an extra person to the line every 5 minutes or so.

At 7:00, the employee again returned and said they were not expecting the systems to sell in launch-fashion this time around so they did not have any tickets. She told us to work out the order in which we all arrived and form a single-file line at one of the side entrances and we would be let in at 7:55. Do you realize how hard it is to play a DS when it's 25 degrees outside?

By 7:30, it was still 25 degrees outside, all 18 spots had been taken and 10-15 people had shown up and were told they were number 19+ in line and may not get a system. Finally, 7:55 rolled around and the manager came out and told us there were only 18 systems in stock and he would escort us all to electronics so we could form our line there before the store opened. The people in line starting at number 19 on back were more than welcome to come to electronics with us but would only be able to get a system if someone's method of payment were to be declined.

I was first in line and all I needed was the Wii itself so I had mine in hand and was out of the store by 8:00. On the way out, I must have passed a dozen or so college kids, all on their way to electronics to try to snag one. It was a long, cold wait in the parking lot, but well worth it to be able to get a Wii at retail price for my nephew for Christmas.


Oh, and did I mention it was 25 degrees outside?

I'm mainly looking for a Wii for my cousin's kid (does that make him a 2nd nephew, or 2nd cousin to me), thus my interest in scoring a Wii. Your story gives me hope, but that is really early on a work night for me tonight...grrr...brrr...

Well, I ended up spending the night inside my nearby Wal-Mart, it was tough trying to get some shuteye in their chairs, but it was better than being outside waiting for the store to open or hand out vouchers. They only had 30 units for sale, and I was 10th in line when I showed up around midnight. In retrospect, I had to be there by 3:30 a.m. to be among the first 30 or so people in line, there were some other stragglers, but they got shut out for this batch of Wii's.

They just popped up in stock at CircuitCity.com for like 5 minutes (they're out again now). I got one ordered, here's hoping that it goes through.

I called my local Wal-Mart last night. They said they opened at 7:00am but wouldn't start selling their 10-30 units until 8:00am. I forgot to ask, "What's up with that?" Anybody here know why they did that?

I'm not absolutely desperate to get a Wii, but I'll try to get up early on Sunday and give Target a shot.

Why are stores treating each new shipment like a mini launch? The console is already out, you get them in, you sell them. If you have one in the back, bring it out and sell it. If you don't, let the people know when you expect the next shipment. Quit making people camp out every weekend and enough with the coyness about when you are getting them in. Nintendo seems to be doing a pretty good job of getting the consoles resupplied, but now some stores keep pulling this type of shit which just makes it worse.

I refuse to play Wal-Mart versions of "Survivor" to get a Wii. They had 8 units at mine last night and no one in line at 9 pm. When the guy told me what I had to do I laughed at him and walked out.

Alright Patrick! Glad you got one.

I do not even presume to know why the systems are being sold in mini-launches. The corporate strategy at Wal~Mart went way out in left field when the old man died and his kids began running the joint.

BTW: If your cousin is a 1st cousin, his kid will be your 2nd cousin, (parent 2nd cousin, kid 3rd cousin) and so on and so forth. Nephew/niece only applies to brother or sister's children.

The kid of your first cousin is a first cousin once removed. Your second cousin is the kid of your parent's first cousin. Your third cousin is the kid of your parent's second cousin.

See the family tree chart here:

In general, nth cousin denotes horizontal separation while nth removed denotes generational separation.

Does anyone know of any "reliable" rumor sites that provide updates on restock dates at the various retail outlets?

The stores are not "making'' people camp out, the people choose too.

By issuing numbers before the store is ready to sell the items, they are encouraging it. If they have 20 in stock and give out 20 numbers, how early do you have to be there to be in the first 20?

If, on the other hand, it was first come first serve, you get there when the store opens and the fastest 20 people to the sales counter in the electronics section get the product. There is no advantage to camping out.

Absolutely agree. I'd rather have tickets than a mad rush of people knocking eachother over.

My order shipped from CircuitCity.com! Yay!
