Time to gear up and head out to your local GameStop or EB Games store if you want your very own Nintendo Wii console, as starting today, both stores will be accepting preorders for Nintendo’s latest game box. Given that Wiis are promising to be far more plentiful come launch day than Sony’s PS3s, this shouldn’t be a mad rush to get one of only 16 preorder slots; in fact, one could even argue that a preorder is a bit unnecessary. Still, they’ll be there tomorrow; for more details, hit the jump!
GameStop and EB Games stores will begin accepting limited pre-orders for the Nintendo Wii console on Friday, October 13, on a first come, first served basis. Due to extremely limited supplu, we expect to reach our limit very quickly, most likely in minutes. We will not accept additional pre-orders at that time. To avoid an unnecessary trip we strongly recommend you call your local store to determine availability. A $50 reservation deposit is required, which can be funded with cash, credit or trade. As we cannot control production and shipping issues by the manufacturer, a reservation deposit does not guarantee receipt of a system available to purchase at launch. Reservations/Purchases are limited to 1 per household.
