    What are you going to do to wait for the Wii to come out? Are you going to be patient? Or like Cartman, freeze yourself until the Wii comes out?
    ... can't find a poll. Regardless, what are you going to do? Be patient? Freeze yourself? Or be like everyone else and buy a PS3?

    now this is one funnny dude!

    there will only be 400 000 Ps3. probably fewer now that sony has told of 20000 fewer for japan.
    yes of course they will sell out with only 5ish per store LOL

    now 4 mil wii will not satisfy the north amrican demand either.
    once people see there were hardly any ps3 to go around, with cash in pocket and mad at sony's slow production, 2 days later there will be many Wii for all to swing

    i will be getting my wii, 3 extra wand, 1 extra chuck, 2 classic controler, zelda, red steel, warioware, excite truck, gt pro and 4x4 evo (two ubisoft games for those sweet wireless steeringwheels)
    first thing on release. my brother is working (electronics retail) that day [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The wait goes great.. but it's really sad alot of more media is coming out from the game on the net... and I HAVE to see it too [​IMG]
    it just spoils so much for me... [​IMG]

    I've got loads to do in school so it's all good.. and I have re-exam period between december 14->22 or so... and that's just not good at all [​IMG]
    I will probably fail all 3 exams I'm supposed to be taking because of time playing Wii [​IMG]

    I'm not preordering it, but I'm going to be one of the few sitting at Wal-Mart waiting for Midnight to strike to pick mine up on the second with Twilight Princess and Marvel.

    I'm pretty sure Wal-Mart will do it, this is how my parents got me my GameCube on it's launch day.

    Im hoping to do midnight thing to, no pre-orders. I pray they have enough stock as well as zelda. I hope they are making more copies of zelda than any other game.
    And now that south park episode is spoiled for me, i know the plot now...nothing to do now...but whack my head with a 2x4 repeatedly until i get amnesia

    Imagine having to wait till Christmas day ?

    When I was a kid, because the internet wasnt around, you probably wouldnt have known much about it other than reading magazines and stuff.

    So it is uncertain that stores like Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-mart, or Target
    will have it on launch date?
    If they do, would they open up at midnight?
    Or would they open up at regular time?
    When would be the best time to wait?
    Man....Im trying to kill my time with school work....and DS.....

    In that case, I'lll be at my Gamestop at twelve sharp midnight, pick up the wii with an extra controller and chuck, along with possibly budokai, zelda, and maybe cod 3.
    As for the wait... Ouendan and EBA FTW!
    Still hellish tho, I lose sleep every night thinking about how badly I want the wii

    Preordered already, along with Zelda and Wii Play and an extra wiimote.
    Warioware isn't a launch title in France, it seems.
    A friends's already preordered it with Monkey Ball.

    Let's hope they don't "last" for two years and we get more games, this time. I was pissed off with the Gamecube and I hadn't even bought it.

    50000 Chars.!? WTF!? I don't know a location with
    It probably wont be out of stock over here so I'm gonna buy it whenever I feel like it [​IMG] Thanks to us Austrians who never really fancied neither the cube nor the ds(lite) and personally I don't see that changing dramatically with the wii.
    I think I'm going to wait for a price-drop and I'm talking gamecube terms here ^^;

    This is probably why Australians pay $80 - $100 per game too, because they are so picky and don't buy hardly any new gaming stuff so companies have to price everything sky high to make a profit! [​IMG]

    I've not pre ordered the wii, I'm playing the waiting game. £179.99 for a wii in europe is too expensive, I'm waiting for the price to go down. The wii to me seems overhyped and I'm think people are going to get bored of using the controller quickly. I maybe totally wrong. I'm still wondering why Shaun has not reviewed the wii yet as hes had one for a few days.

    ^Get Wii Play instead of the extra wiimote, seriously the games are worth more than the few bucks extra they charge [​IMG]

    Freeze yourself till it comes, like Cartman.

    I pre-ordered mine last month, along with the wii play pack and zelda. If the review are good, I'll go for Rayman to (I like stupid games).

    The wait shouldn't be to long, I have Gothic 3 to beat and I'm waiting for Silverfall (hope it has a good MP mode, still playing Diablo 2). Also working on a ds dev project. I have to test more Supreme Commander.
