Maybe they're hard to get. And if you didn't have preorder, impossible to get without spending money. A lot of money. Like this.

That was my point. I've heard that only half of the expected units were shipped.

I expect the Wii to be almost as difficult to get as the PS3. I want to pick one up next week, but I expect less and less to be able to go into Best Buy and get one.

Probably. That's why I'll go early and the store I am going to doesn't open until 10 AM my time, so I'll probably be there are 7 AM.

Though, there is one thing I am worried about. The fact that some of the games are released already according to the website that I am purchasing it from. So, I hope the games I want are not already sold out by the time I get it.

I wanna kick every scalper in the nuts. With steel toe boots. Maybe with spikes. Repeatedly.

Why? Scalping is legal here (Illinois) is it not in other states?

You're right. I wanna kick both in the nuts.

Without the Buyers there would be no scalpers.

These people should just give me the $600+ and me and Bongo will kick their @$$es. Same effect only cheaper. F***, I'd do it for free. Not sure about Bongo though.
I'd join you. These guys don't seem to get that they could buy 2 absolute topline computers, no skimping on anything (FEAR running smooth as silk, you get the picture) for 10k. They could have gotten like 7 pretty good ones too...

I think these guys lost sight of what they were actually getting with a PS3.

Oh I don't doubt that. But I hate you because you have your Wii now, whereas I have to wait for at least 6 more hours.

Here's my score from this morning...



Wii Sports is all I've played so far, but it kicks ass.

Now to either get a wireless router, or find a USB-wired-ethernet to use on it...

I had to put this because I will be wearing this on random weekends when I'm mascoting. So I don't exactly OWN it, but I'm one of the few who get's to wear it. So....It's a very good thing ot be mascoting. This is pretty much our exact panther suit, so it's pretty rad.

And what I got.

Got it after a 3 hour wait. I actually wasn't suppose to get one but somebody's transaction didn't work and wait an extra half hour and got the last one! ^_^











No Red Steel available, but I'll get it later this week.

And from my b-day



and $40.

All I know at this point, is that more are shipping this week. Not sure which day or how many. I suppose it verys from store to store. I DO know that all of our reserve customers picked up today, so anything else after today is first come first serve.

It's quite funny, so far. The graphics aren't that bad for it really, IMO. At first, it's sort of difficult to get use to the controls, but once you've figured them out, the game is great. It's pretty intense once you sort the warfare. Though, you will need the Nunchuk the play it. So, my buddy wasn't able to play it since I only at the second Wiimote since all the Nunchuks were out by the time I got the Wii. Though, I haven't played it much really, but I will when I get home from school.

Yes, indeed. I want to try a few before I buy them. 'Specially Madden NFL '07. I went yesterday (day of release) and they had nothing up yet, I also wanted to get the Nunchuk and they didn't have it either.

IMO, CoD3 isnt all that great. With cutscenes every 10 minutes and running about 3-5 minutes long. Then there is the hit detection. I shot one german soldier in the face 8 times with the M1! all this is on the xbox360 for me not the Wii yet

I haven't had much trouble in CoD3 on the Wii. Mind you, I haven't played that much yet. But, the gameplay is wicked.

Btw, abespam, I have reconsidered and decided to keep it.

Oh...you're keeping it...

*disassembles sniper rifle*

>.> <.<

I just found out that my blockbuster is carrying Wii and PS3 games, you just have to ask for them at the counter. I have to take back the games we have, but then I'm gonna rent CoD3, while my lil bro might rent Spongebob or Tony Hawk.

Good, because if Gamespot's review didn't exist, it would be the best game EVAR, second only to Ocarina of Time.

I actually don't think the Gamespot reviewer even finnished the game, as he estimated that it would take around 35-40 hours to complete the game, while most other reviews said it would easily take you over 50 hours. Also, considering he was the only one to say the controls were somewhat unresponsive, I doubt he could make such a good time on the game...

BTW, good choice Commander

Jebbers, that shirt is seriously bad ass! That is a bad ass game too, I finally beat it on casual because I am a wuss. We owe each other a co-op match or a multi-player game real soon, whenever I can tear myself away from my store!

That being said, i'm happy yet, pissed. I reserved a copy of Gears of War collector's edtion as soon as I upgraded to 360, and guess what I get today? A promotional copy of Gears of War collector's edition....BASTARDS!

I also got some other cool freebies from our vendors today:
+7500 wii points!

Oh, and I picked up my reserved copy of Superman Returns:



And this thing, hopefully will replace having to use my VCR to run my 360 through my surround sound:
