Shane and I pre-ordered the Nintendo Wii this morning. We got to EB in Langford at 5AM, which we thought was insane. We were sure we'd be first in line.

Yeah, right.

First in line... 3PM yesterday. 2nd, 6PM. 3rd, 8PM... we were 12th and 13th. Luckily, most people ahead of us were pre-ordering the PS3, not the Wii. Unfortunately there were only 7 PS3s available to pre-order. The 8th guy in line for the PS3 was pretty pissed off, to say the least.

I was the 4th or 5th to pre-order the Wii, Shane was next. I think they had between 14 and 20 Wii consoles available. I also preordered an extra Wiimote and Nunchuk, 2 classic controllers, games (Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess yo!, Red Steel and COD3) and a Wii Points Card for the Wii Virtual Console.

November 19th... 34 more sleeps!
