    Went into Game today in Dublin and got told that they have received over 600 preorders already in that store alone and I had no chance of getting it anywhere before christmas [​IMG]

    So any suggestions on were I might be able to swing one online for around the same price if not cheaper? (€250)

    Whats odd is that they had no Zelda boxes out on display and the guy asked me if I wanted to preorder it for after christmas oO It is a launch title over here isnt it?

    Sad sad Milo [​IMG]

    There is little chance of you getting one now, unless you ring everywhere locally every day asking if they have one.
    Then when they do, ask them to put it aside for you, most will do that.

    I myself have 4 Wii games sat next to me, but I'm on a waiting list to get my Wii. Hopefully it won't be too much longer. Two weeks is enough waiting.

    I called my local EBgames everyday for the last week and they finally said they were getting some in today a little before noon, so I got there at 11:15 and there was a line of 4 people and I ask the guy behind the counter and he says "There are already more people in line then the amount we are getting in." WTF? How many were they getting? 1?

    I'm a lazy bugger though :/

    See I want one but I don't want one

    I got my DS at the Japanese launch with super mario 64 and didn't play it for a year lol (Now my mam is never off it so I still cant play it lol). I can picture that happening with the Wii

    Ah well I might get lucky

    hey, just find a store that doesnt do pre-orders. i would say more stores open 24/7 wouldnt have them. I waited inside a Meijers from 1:30-12:00 to get mine

    No Wii in Egypt at all, looks like I got to get it online. Anybody here suggests a cheap online site to get it?(I don't need x2 or +300 jacked up prices PLZ)
