Hehe, silly people.

It's really not that hard to get a Wii, all you have to do is plan ahead, and pick an unlikely shop.

I pre-ordered mine from Argos and they delivered it. Screw waiting in line, I didn't even leave the house!

Yea I've heard Barnes & Noble is a good place that people don't really think about. Also, figure out when stores get their shipments for the week (I'm guessing Sunday).

Astounding. It's behaviour like that that gets game players labeled as obsessed geeks.

well, it looks like a ten year old wrote that, the lack of detalied description makes it hard to look at it in context.

however, it's a believable story and in america anything is possible. the stores should do something to prevent that sort of thing happening, i.e. a back exit for purchasers and black bin liners instead of 'nintendo' bags, etc.

OK, that is really stupid. I know I wanted one bad, but that is ridiculous. Grabbing someone's bag! WTF!

But then again, whilst it's not okay for men to go hysterical over a games console, it's been socially okay for over 50 years for woman to be violently hysterical over pop groups. mad world we live in.

Just finished Red Steel. The game was wicked. I Kinda feel proud I have one. But I need to get some more new games now.

How about women at end of the financial year shoe store sales? When my women leaves the house with a rabid look and foam dripping down her chin, I know its sale time and I get out of her way or risk bodily harm.
