Wii some more

For those of you who want one - Smyths toystores around the city just got a large shipment of non preordered Wiis in this morning. You have no excuses, this is the healthiest gaming you will ever do.

Edit: Holy crap that was quick, they're almost gone.

Ah damn. I'll get mine eventually. In the meantime, spare a thought for this poor chap

Ouch...
Games and toy stores are really acting the bollocks with this to be honest. HMV "guaranteed" getting one on the eighth with their preorders and they got squat in on the day and have since gotten diddley as a followup. Jerking customers around is not a means towards store loyalty.


I'm beginning to realise that a lot of my enthusiasm for getting the thing was based on not having to listen to the bloke beside me at work going on and on about his one while going mad with jealousy. If not for that I could have waited until january quite happily (not that I regret it or anything)

I had resigned myself to not getting one, but my 11 year old decided (rather late) that he would like one ... so my interest is rekindled!

Do please let us know if you hear of anyone else getting un-pre-ordered shipments in!!

Game got a bunch in this morning and one of the blokes in the office managed to be #10 in the queue for nine machines. The one in front of him didn't know what the hell it was and was buying it for her friend's boyfriend or something similar. Unfortunately I didn't even get *into* work until after all this had happened (poxy sub zero fog conditions). I'll definitely post if I hear anything but you'd want to be incredibly quick off the bat, boards.ie might be of *some* use but its so full of lies and trickery by people prepared to say "yeah, I called them but they had none left" so that they'll get one themselves that its hit and miss. If I'd listened to the scumbags on that I wouldn't have even gone in that night.
