SlashGear Scores A Nintendo Wii

Our man Vincent scored a Nintendo Wii thanks to a kind woman name Kim and her three sons. They spent 25 hours in line at a local Wal-Mart in Scottsdale, AZ. and saw that Vincent was in desperate need of the Wii for an unboxing ceremony on SlashGear.com – and gave up one of three Wii they'd gotten tickets for. There were only 20 Wii available and not a single more. All the other Wal-Mart stores didn't start selling the Wii until 6AM and there were already lines at those locations.

So through Vincent's charm (which I always thought dubious) and power of persuasion, we have a Wii which we'll be proud to share the video unboxing ceremony of with you. Until then, enjoy these pictures of the happy shopping moment...

Anyone care to guesstimate the eBay value?

Aww, look at his happy smiling face! Christmas comes early for our child-at-heart Vincent:

Many, many thanks to Kim and her sons. We hope you're enjoying your consoles!
