Ok, it looks like I have found a day that I can get the Wii. It will be this friday at a game stop. Should I arrive early? Or do shipments come random. Any tips or advice?

Oh. Special time is around 11? That's kinda random heh. I'll take your advice on that the. The other day I called, the dude told me that they came at 11 (I called at 12 :[ )

well they open at 10 I believe, I am not entirely sure and most deliveries are between 11 and 2 sooo 11 would be the best time... I am guessing.

get there before 11! i work at one and we get people lining up at 3am on the morning of our shipments and we might not get them until 2, or we might have them upon opening. be prepared for a camp-out.

well there you go! It is weird to think that I just waltz up in EB on sunday morning and picked up mine.

that's very cool :) it might have been that no one knew the shipment was coming or that it came earlier than expected. either way though, you got lucky!

At the Jantzen Beach Circuit City on Sunday, they gave out tickets at 8am for the people that had lined up, but the store itself didn't open until 10am.

So... maybe ask if they will give out tickets earlier, how many systems they will be getting, or when the shipment will arrive. And then plan accordingly. :)
