Nintendo Wii Preorder (finally)

I just called my local Gamestop, and they said that the Nintendo Wii Preorders started tomorrow morning. I was as happy as I have ever been since they announced its launch date. My dad is taking me over to my local Gamestop at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning so that I can wait in another full line of hopefuls that all want a coveted pre-order receipt. I personally am hoping that I will get one because I have been waiting for this info ever since they announced the launch day. I figure that it will go by really quickly because after about 5 minutes, all of the 8 PS3 pre-orders were gone. This will definitely be an interesting Friday the 13th.

Poor Unfortunate Sony

Gamestop has just detailed their instore PS3 pre-orders. They expected, because of the extreme shortage, that there would only be 8 consoles per store, 16 if there was a big store. In order to preorder, you would have to pay 100 dollars in trade-ins, cash, check, or credit card. (A little questionable about the credit card though) That really must suck for the die-hard Sony fans that vowed to get a PS3 at launch day. That is definitely not going to be the same case for Wii. Nintendo has already reported that 2 million Wii units are ready for sale. If 4 million were headed to the US, that means each store would get approximately 80 Wii systems, 160 if it is possible. I, however, am not getting a PS3, so I really am not worried. Though I am watching very carefully about Wii Pre-orders. I have made sure that I will pre-order one somehow and get it at launch day.

My Wii Expenditures

426 dollars:

250 dollars = Wii Console
50 dollars = The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
60 dollars = Wii controller and Nunchuk attachment
20 dollars = 2000 Wii points card w/free classic control
20 dollars = 2000 Wii points card w/free classic control
26 dollars = tax charges (6.5 percent, man that sucks)

MODEDIT: Blogs merged.

After waiting for practically a year ever since they showed a prototype of the then named Nintendo Revolution's controller. Now it is finally set. November 19 for 250 dollars. Unfortunately, I have to wait two months and four days as of the 15th of September. But at least I know when I can expect it.
