UK Retailer Argos Claims Wii Delay
bad news for shaunj66... sorry mate!
that really sucks, man....
hope it's not UK wide, just that chain...
but still, it's gotta suck for pre-order customers
Too bad for most people. Argos only got 13,000 out of their expected 15,000 units.
It's a damn good thing I successfully pre-ordered from Amazon.co.uk too! No way I'm going to be Wiiless come Dec. 8th!
Aww that sucks
I hope you guys in Europe get a good amount of consoles and that the delay is not too far away.
Australia's second shipment of Wii arrives on monday/tuesday, so perhaps it's something similar to Europe.
Pre orders shouldnt be allowed, let everyone wait in line without any bastards pre ordering and jumping the queue.
i preordered from argos (who i just happen to work for so i got a nice 10% discount) and have already had a phone call confirming that i will be recieving my wii tomorrow
Forgot to pre-order yours then..?
My shop just called, the Wii has arrived. I love preordering.
I do not know much about ordering stuff onlnie but couldnt people in UK order from USA on nov 19th preorder so they get theres within a week or two? or is that not allowed im just curious how affairs work overseas like that.
Argos are such tools, seriously.
No such delay was confirmed, or even rumoured for that matter. Why would Nintendo delay the hottest console this side of 2006 a mere DAY before launch? Honestly...
It's complicated and the Wii features some kind of bloody stupid region locking so it's probably not a very good idea. You loose warranty and all that stuff, too... And with the ebay prices it wouldn't be cheaper, either.
Me too Between 8am and 6pm. A mate off another forum got the same call confirming it'll be delivered tomorrow. I ordered on Nov 8th, he ordered on Nov 16th. So at the moment I love Argos. That may change if it doesn't turn up tomorrow though (Or if they only deliver Monkey Ball or something - they did just say "Your order" will be delivered)
Just to add to that I ordered mine from Argos, got a great deal Zelda and Red Steel for £29.99 each at the same time and I also got the phone call last night confirming delivery tomorrow. Only Problem it's my Xmas pressie and I doubt my fiancee will let me have it till the 25th.. going to have to work on convincing her.
Woot! Ours has been dispatched by Amazon via Parcelforce! Just a few more hours!
I got a call yesterday confirming my pre-order
10 hours and 5 minutes
Am I The only one exited?
thats easy, seduce her.
You would think it would be in the retailers best interest to sell the wii on a first come, first serve basis. Even if it just gets a big queue outside the shop. As long as people are coming into the shop they might buy something else, even though they can't get the wii. I can remember when the xbox 360 first came out and you couldn't get them for love or money. GAME put banners up in their shop saying that they had got some in. Went into GAME and all the systems were pre-ordered which makes me think they never had any in stock because they had already sold out.
