    interesting to read.

    I'm not going to camp out still...those people are crazy @_@. but it DOES make me fear for my life when I think about walking back to my car with a PS3/Wii under my arm. I'm making sure I go to pick them up with a bunch of my family so I don't get mugged.

    What are your launch day plans?

    My plans are to walk into Gamestop on launch day, when they open (just to piss off anyone who thought they could camp out) and pick up my Wii and walk right back out and go home xD

    Wow, that's such a detailed and thought out guide :S
    Well, I pre-ordered my Wii, and I plan to go with my two brothers on launch day early in the morning and pick one up. Hopefully, I'll be able to get out safely.

    lol...he'll just have to wait till they announce they ran out of Wii's and he could then casually pick up his pre-order xDD

    They Gamestop/Ebgames will notify the customers 24hrs before about the pre-order so there shouldn't be any surprises.

    pre-ordered son! I ain't even getting it until I get off work that evening. (Only to find the store trashed and looted, because Sony really did fuck up and only sent like 10 PS3s...and I find out mine has been stolen by the angry mob)

    I'm going to Wal-Mart and browse the store for 8 hours until i see the first fool to step in line to wait for a Nintendo Wii. I'm smart :-). I'm not gonna wait outside in the cold until a store opens up :-). I'ma be warm and toasty :amuse .

    If there's already a line then o.O, i'll ask someone in the front to let me go ahead of them and i will pay them. I'll only go as far as to buy an extra game for them.

    Get ready for a fight then :p

    I can't stand people who skip lines, what does a person do if a person suddenly appears saying someone was saving them a spot? O_O

    I mean, they could easily say "oh, I was here before you arrived and a friend of mines saved my spot while I was away"

    That happened when I was waiting for the Wii pre-order and if I had missed out because of that I would have been pissed. :oh

    In fact the person two spots behind me was turned back because they ran out =/

    It's a tough situation, because you know people do go to use the bathroom or run some kind of other legitinate excuse, while others do skip in-line using their friends as cover.

    I'll be bringing a lot of shitbuckets :oh

    Seriously, I'll just wait a few months (preferably when Super Smash Bros. Brawl comes out) and then go on to buy a Wii. I'm not that rabid to risk my physical well-being for a console.

    i want someone to try and jack my Nintendo Wii. I'ma bust em across the head :mad . I want that experience. This will be my first time buying my own game console with my own money and my first time buying it @ launch date. So it will be an experience to remember :-). It will be Christmas on Thanksgiving. And then i will have a 2nd Christmas when my XBox 360 sits wrapped up under a tree. My parents owe me over 1000 bucks... so i told them that i better have a 360 under the tree along with some games:amuse
