I got a Wii, I got a Wii, I got a Wii, I got a Wii, I got a Wii!!!
If you missed Vince’s post then chances are you missed getting a Wii this weekend if you were in the market for one that is. The gf and I picked one up at the 86th street Best Buy in Manhattan this morning and boy was I surprised there were still some left as we got there around 10:30 and there was already a line of people waiting but we decided to wait to see what happened and we were lucky #39. According to the Best Buy folks I spoke with people had only started lining up at 10.
The GameStop across the street also had a micro line of a few people getting Wii’s. If you tried Circuit City you might have had more luck, I saw a few people walking by with Wii’s in their CC bags around 11:30. A tad bit odd because I thought Circuit City opening up an hour earlier would have been sold out faster but a lot of those Wii owners were hitting up Best Buy for games and accessories.
According to Best Buy’s Sunday ad, each store would get a minimum of 20 Wii’s which is five more than what Kotaku had reported was the minimum. The maximum of 45 was correct, in fact lucky #45 was just some random dude who didn’t even know what the line was for until the Best Buy employee handing out the coupons gave him one.
Wii Sports is the coolest thing ever but apparently my Wii Fitness Age is 41 I can’t get to the online shop to save my life. Anyone else having problems logging onto the store?
