No Wii for me....

Me so sad. Me not have Wii. Seriously, I got up early this morning at 8 AM when they would be putting it up on Amazon. Ever see the movie "Gone in 60 Seconds?" Yeah, it was like that, but with nerds. So I just have to be patient for the next shipment.

In the meantime, I'm wondering, what's the dealio over in Japanland? Are there any dissatisfied Otakus?

You have no idea. Did you see the video of all the Japanese people lined up for the PS3 at the Tokyo Bic Camera? It was crazy. People were paying other people (mostly Chinese immigrants) to wait in line for them. There was alot of pushing and shoving etc. and alot of them can't speak Japanese so crowd control was a little difficult until they found someone that worked there that spoke Chinese.

We will wait until the cool package comes out. After Christmas my friend. We can wait :D

It is being released later in Japan. But we're not going to fight for one as soon as it's released here. We'll wait for a bundled deal.

Well make sure you give me your Wii friend code when you get one!

osakaotaku said...

You could not get it in Japan? I thought that would the easiest place to get one. Maybe Santa will put one under the tree for you?

Alas, Ookami Machiavelli lives in the United States, plus Nintendo released the Wii to the non-Japanese markets first. Sad for us Osakans (Karaoke Queen, Osakaotaku, and Osaka Jock)

I saw the fabled Wii in the local game store today.....none in stock of course :)

Ryan said...

Awww too bad. Hopefully you will get yours soon. Then we can trade Wii numbers and get our Mii's to mingle ;)

So nerdy. I love it! lol

My friend bought one today and was kindly demonstrating it by kicking our collective arse. My verdict:even though I don't play games (at all), I want it.

The remote and nunchuck attachment are going to cause serious injuries...

They are available for purchase now! Cool. Hmmm, I'm thinking we will get one in January. Merry Christmas to me!
