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.

"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.

I got mine showed up 5 min before opening and was like 3rd in line. They had 32 at this store. Went to EB after and got another for ebay =D.

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

    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/

    The teacher just wanted to know what kind of perverted debauchery Julie was watching on the school computer instead of studying.
