    Yup, you can't get it anywhere now. Every single machine is sold out as far as I can tell. :'(


    Update: There's apparently a new batch coming in the week after the release.

    Maybe... because Nintendo has consistently screwed the European market through the years?

    I live in Europe, and you guys should be glad you have at least got it now. I still have to wait for what seems ages (feels like Cartman from SP).

    I think he means, the first batch is sold out, meaning you can't get one for 8th december any more... but i'm not sure.

    cause it's definatly not out here yet

    scorpei could be saying that ugly rose was lucky enough to have even been given the opportunity to get a wii as he isn't able despite coming from the same continent?

    But, it's impossible [​IMG] He's saying it's sold out, when it hasn't even been released yet. I think the OP needs to clarify his post.

    Haha... I never expected this thread to develop like this.

    Okay, to clarify, every store's PRE-ORDERS are sold out [​IMG]

    That means you won't be able to get a Wii on day one (8th of December).

    Wii-games won't be online for a little while because the developers didn't receive the library to make them work online yet. IIRC the developers will get the library somewhere in the beginning of 2007 so most games will have online multiplayer from then on. (and for Pete's sake, start writing sentences instead of blurting out words)

    GOGO ESKILSTUNA! i think you can get one there if you pre-order ^^ i pre-ordered a Wii (at EB Games) last week and they didn't say anything about shortage, so i guess it's not a problem here [​IMG]

    but a month ago, they said that it probably was necessary to pre-order to get one. Good luck with the Wii chase dude, i hope you get one on 8th dec [​IMG]

    Ohh, thanks for the tip dude. Still, if I successfully order from there it'll take a day to deliver to Stockholm, so I'll lag behind one day [​IMG]
