wii

We just rang (at 10pm) the local video/dvd/game rental/retail shop here in Whistler. Asking what the situation with the new Nintendo Wii is tomorrow (as it goes on sale tomorrow!) The lady at the end of the phone told me some things I didn't want to hear.

  1. They are starting to sell the Wii at mid-night
  2. There is already a queue outside the shop
  3. They have a limited amount of Wiis to sell
  4. The number of people in the queue already outnumber the amount of units they have
  5. They are unsure when they will be getting another shipment in
  6. Next possible date is Thursday 2 weeks the 30th of November
I did not like that news. No Wii for us and we were looking forward to it soo much!

The funny thing is that we were in the Village earlier this evening and were going to pop into see if there was a queue in case we needed to join it. But we thought sure there will be LOADS, first thing in the morning will be loads of time to queue up and get one. We were so wrong!
