    Oh baby!

    I preordered from game when dinosaurs roamed the earth...roundabout September

    Just checked and my status is DESPATCHED...

    Technically I could be having a long Wii session either tomorrow or Thursday

    Sweet as a macadamia nut! yee haa

    Nice one GAME UK

    I've not been so excited about a console since i got a japanese Super Famicom with Mario World and R-type from my local importer, oh yes i got Hole In one Golf with it too...Who remembers that game!? I loved the Musak.

    Just like being a kid again at crimbo! Ace

    If I get it before Friday I will get some exclusive pics up for you guys, of the UK package. Hope I get a Wii sports box with the UK version.

    Hahaha I heard Game always ship their stuff a few days early, hope you get it soon. I had mine pre-ordered at Play.com, but they changed their prices of games without notice and applied those changes to my pre-ordered games without notice, they should really honour the pre-order price.

    So i cancelled and went with Amazon.co.uk, which i have confirmed for Friday 8th Delivery, the games are the same price i had previously ordered from play.com and i ended up getting the spare remotes, nunchucks and 2x classic remotes from Play-Asia.com which even with UPS shipping, worked out cheaper than getting them from no-discount Play.com!

    I used to rely on Play.com for years, they have gotten a bit to big for themselves now and customer service and care is out the window, so i get my dvds from cd-wow.com and game stuff from Game, Play-Asia or Amazon!

    Let us see pics if you get it tomorrow!

    That would be the one. As with all PODs it is likely to break down at some point.
