Not sure about you guys, but these things are pretty cool, and I got 2 today, I got to circut city with a coupon that I printed off the internet ($40 off)and only waited 10 min, before the maneger came out and handed us our coupons. It was still just over two hours till they opened since it was around 7:45. Went to Best Buy and waited 30 min. when we got the word that Target was open and had about 20 or 25 wii's and so we went there and bought one. Sat there for a while killing time and watching all the people come in for wii's and leaving disappointed as me and my two friends sat there with three wii's. Then we sat in our warm cars and when Circut City opened up me and only one of the two friends went in and bought our second wiis of the morning. Then we went to Dennys whereI enjoyed a satisfying and delicious extreme grandslam for only $5.99. Then i went home and slept for about 6-7 hours. Had my g/f call her brother and see if he wanted to buy a Wii and he did so I got the other one off my hands. All in all a great day!

What prices are the games over there?
I bought my son Cars for PS2 the other day for $39.95 and noticed the same game for the Wii was $99.95

I GOT MINE!!! *Jumps up excitedly* OWWW!!! *rubs shoulder* 8 hours of Wii taught me one thing, stretch before you play. Im really sore today, lol.

I got in line at 515 on sunday and there were 9 people by 6, and 9 Wii's. I went to walmart to pick up some games (had gift cards there) and one really super helpful worker got me another Wii. He thought they had some, and even though the other employee told him they didnt, he still checked. He found some, but did not know they were not supposed to be sold until Febuary. Even after he found this out he still sold it to me. Much better than the people who are normaly there, who just laugh at you(literaly) when you ask them. I wonder how long they've had these, as for the last two weeks they've been telling me they didnt have any on order, now I realize probably because they already had stock.

I picked up the second to sell at retail to a friend, or if not I will sell it here at retail price. I figured I would rescue it before some bastard bought it to put it on ebay. I know at least two of the 9 people at meijer when I got mine were there only to ebay them, and they somehow managed to cut from 2nd to last to the front of the line. A move that would have gotten them seriosuly injured(literaly) had they not already announced that there were 9 people and they had 9 wii's. Id rather see them go to people who want to play them.

I have GT Pro Series.

It's a straight Gamecube port from Japan with Wii controls... The graphics are cell-shaded.
Also, I'll have some gold-plated Wii component cables for sale on www.gameparts.biz soon.
