Wii Quest, Part IV

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last week the folks at GameStop told me that it would probably be today before they got anymore Wiis. My roommate also heard that today might be the magic day when he was out of town recently.

I took my lunch break as early as I could and drove to GameStop. Of course, there was already a line there. They had a sign-up list and I was number 14 on the list. More people came after I did. I heard somebody say that people started getting in line at Wal-Mart last night. I was kind of excited. I figured that some people would get Wiis even if I wasn’t one of them. A lady from work came in looking at Nintendo DS games and I talked with her some. After a while the UPS guy came and he had a few big boxes. The store grew quiet with anticipation. Unfortunately, when the GameStop employee came from the back he said that there were no Wiis. Everyone seemed stunned and disappointed. One guy came hoping to get a Wii and a PS3, but he only got a PS3.

I have a feeling that they’ll get the Wiis tomorrow and it sounded like they may only get one shipment per week. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to go by there tomorrow until later in the day. I guess I’ll try again next week. I’m pretty sure I won’t be standing in line trying to get one again. This will probably be the last update on this until I actually get my hands on one. That Xbox 360 is starting to look more and more tempting.

Update, 2:00 pm
I just spoke to the co-worker who I saw in GameStop earlier. She went to Wal-Mart and found out that they didn’t get any Wiis either.
