    Seems like i posted earlier on the wrong topic.....anyway
    Yeah I' ve been to Nintendo store @ Rockfeller plaza but they told me tehey just stopped taking pre-orders,and minutes later I was at an Ebgames around the corner and they told me they stopped this morning.
    I am sooo mad!!!
    Now I will have to line up in the cold and wait for the store to open.
    By the way , I've never done this, so I' m curious, at what time do you think I should get there ?
    Is it 3AM a goot time or is it too early ?
    I am planning to wait in line at the Nintendo Store at the Rockfeller Center in New York.
    Any of you guys live around here ?

    Well, this is the biggest thing ever.
    Try to drive around there on the late night, if you see a bunch of people playing their DS Lite...you´re late. [​IMG]

    "Is it 3AM a goot time or is it too early ?"

    What time do they open? Find out if they are doing midnight (12am) sale. If so, plan to get there 3-5 hours before at least. Either way, get there 3-5 hours before the store starts selling consoles. My friend and I went to Walmart for the GCN launch, neither of us preordered (I couldn't afford one at the time) and we got there around 10:30 or 11pm the night before and there were already 5-10 people in line. They had plenty of GCNs though. Wii seems like it will be much more widely distributed (i.e. in more stores) and seems to have a lot more demand, so that is why I suggest no later than 3 hours before. Never hurts to be early. Just make sure you bring a DS or something so you won't be bored out of your mind.

    Edit: They are already going for $400 on ebay and pre-orders just started today =D
