Gamecube was my first launch day console, I picked it up in the morning from WHSmiths of all shops, can't remember why or if I preorered or not.
It was also my last day of University until September so took it on the bus with me and got home maybe 2pm to start playing.
Wii, preorered but didn't get it launch day December 8th, indy game shop I preorered from only had one and I was third on the list. I got a call 3 days before Xmas thay had it in to collect.
Switch, ordered online for launch day, was tracking DPD then when n he was 2 stops away at around 4p
