    I pre-ordered my Wii there, too...
    why in the world do they get not a single Wii? that's so stupid...why is it more important for Nintendo, to have like 100 Wiis in every Wal-Mart and Best Buy? they should make sure to be able to fulfill all the pre-orders first...
    anyway, I'm not cancelling my order, since it would take even longer if I order my Wii at dvdboxoffice now...maybe our Wiis will be shipped in the week after launch...

    lucky for me, my little brother is getting a european Wii, so I won't be playing Wii any later than the 8th december

    Shortages are better than not even having the option to purchase a unit correct?

    EBG in Umeå sucks, they charge like 179 SEK for WoW TCG when it's only 149 at WoBG and Collector's Point :P

    Anyhow, still haven't resolved this whole Wii problem/trauma. Might preorder @ DVDBO instead, or try have someone send it from the US...

    Yea.. swedes are scary :'(


    Is everyone living at home? I live by myself in a small apartment and have bearly enough money to pay the rent. Buying a Wii is out of the question, not that I would want to play it on my 14 inch screen..

    I read that ImportMadness is not a very reliable story (link) so does anyone have any other tips where I could order a Wii?

    (Currently I'm hoping for Frys to stock up on Wiis on launch...)

    bad news for those of you who canceled their pre-order at VG+...
    today they said the DID get a few Wii units for launch, and they're expecting more Wiis between tuesday and friday...in addition, they told me I'm #55 in line for the Wii...that's pretty nice, because last week I was #126 in line [​IMG]

    it was a good decision not to cancel my Wii pre-order there...I'll probably be getting my Wii before December, which is much sooner than I expected

    Yeah I'm glad I kept my pre-order as well. Think I'll cancel the one at ImportMadness now that I know I am #69 in line @ VG+ and because they feel more reliable (especially since I know that they are able to write down the value on the package to help me avoid customs duty) [​IMG]

    I should ask them to do it with my package, too [​IMG]

    last time I did that was when I ordered my PSP at winsunx.com...they wrote on the package that the value was $30US...unfortunately, the customs clearance opened the package and they didn't believe it was $30, so I had to tell them the real value (which was more than $300 :'( ) and had to wait for 3 more days for my PSP to arrive [​IMG]

    Hm, funny... Would those of you who have preordered at VG+ and are still waiting for your Wii please check what your current order status is by logging in and clicking on "Order History"?

    Because mine currently says "Preorder Processing" and was wondering if it means that A) my order really IS processing and I should therefor expect the Wii to arrive sometime next week, or B) VG+ simply changed the status on EVERYONE'S preorder the day they were told that they would infact be given consoles after all.

    Please state your number in line as well. Having no. 67 on the preorder list is what makes me so suspicious to my order status - I'm not counting on getting a Wii from VG+ for another two weeks, seing how they will only be getting a small number of consoles each week.
