Yes, I have tried to get a wii this holiday season, and succeeded. My story is pretty dull. I said to myself I wouldn't try to get one till later, but couldn't resist the wii after a while. Firstly I tried obtaining one at a walmart and waited a few hours on the week of december 4th. After about 3 hours, it turned out that they weren't going to receive shipment, so the line up was useless. There were many furious and angry customers, but wal-mart held no responsibility for our wait. Next would be bestbuy. I was camping the online site daily, but one day I went out to the movies. When I came home, I found out that bestbuy finally had stock that evening, and missed it by chance. I then thought that perhaps I wasn't meant to get one. A few days later, I went at 5 AM with a friend to toys r us as we heard about them getting stock on that day. However, there were literally hundreds of people, and because it was a mall entrance, everyone just ran. The mall had several entrances, so the one we lined up at was opened later. We ended up being possibly 150th in line outside of toys r us, when we were 15, 16 out of 40 at our entrance. A few days later, I went home, got alerted that some were in stock on bestbuy, bought one, shipped on christmas eve, and was very happy.
