At least they didn't just keep taking orders, knowing they didn't have enough stock to match demand.

Haha nice one! Thanks for the link JohnD, didn't know that! Better rethink my pre-ordering strategy then! I would have thought this would have happened to the PS3 seeing as SONY messed up so bad in getting enough units together...but no. Hopefully we are seeing a major Nintendo revival *rubs hands* ve are taking over ze vorld once again!

Got mine this morning. It was really close, I was the last in line to get one. 16 preorders were given the location I was at.

Although I had to yell at this one kid cause I watched him walk all the way from the back of the line to behind the guy giving out the preorder stickers and get one. haha, I was like oh no I don't think so...since I knew I was the last one! The manager took it back after 3-4 other people agreed with me.
