My bank account doesn't even show GamePlay as having taken any money from my account!

Unless they did it ages ago and I didn't notice.

WTF

They sent an email saying theyd take the money tuesday/wednesday.

Mine has arrived. I'll see it tomorrow!

Mine's here!

Got a phone call with work at 3, then it's game on. Console and Sports only for tonight - Amazon delayed shipping of Play and Zelda for some reason. Should have those tomorrow. Then I'm going to pop out tomorrow and hoover up any spare bits and bobs I can find.

Roll on 3:30

Mines finally turned up from Woolies via Parcelforce.

Time for some fun I feel.

Oh jesus no. I totally didn't expect to get mine at launch as I only pre-ordered from Woolies a few weeks ago. I got to work this morning and saw the despatched email and thought, 'Meh, it wont arrive today'.

Just gone onto the Parcel Force website, even that place is down because of heavy traffic. Bloody Geeks. :(

I only pre-ordered it a few weeks ago too

I have to say Woolworths have come through for me for both the Wii and the 360 too

Well, my story was interesting.

After lots of messing aboot by HMV online, I was expecting it today. After a mondo paypacket from work (Holiday in lieu, yay!) at 12.00 I dashed into town and managed to pick up Zelda, Wiiplay + remote. Saw monkey ball, classic controllers, the lot. But no effing nunchuks of course.

Then, after work at 3, I called my mums house (having it delivered there) and it hadn't arrived. Ten minutes later I got THE CALL.

This was about ten minutes ago. Unfortunately a lift there doesn't arrive for an hour.

Shit.

Had some time to play with it now - it's as great as I was hoping. I'm so glad that Gameplay put in my last minute order of Wii Play as well, 2 player Wii Sports rocks :( Now to try and get the Internets working - it gets as far as error 32002 when it goes to actually download the Wii update. Fingers crossed it's just nintendo's site being unavailable due to weight of traffic or something :(

This IS the fucking future of games. I've had more fun in the half hour I've had the wii than the 6 months I've had with the 360.

you've been playing the wrong 360 games then. the wii is great, but it'l never host something as awesome as gears multiplayer, or FEAR. 2 different consoles for 2 different needs. but the 360 will remain the king.

edit: sounds a bit nobish. zelda and bowling are awesome. im just pointing out these machines do seriously different things.

I'm home, too excited to post pictures. Unpacked it, its amazingly small and sexy. Haven't played it yet, the phone keeps ringing so I thought i'd post this then get stuck in.

A couple of things to report. On my way home I popped into Game (near Bank station, London) The guy before me was picking up his pre-order with Wii Play and Tony Hawks. I asked the assistant for Zelda and Wii Play (£40 and £35 respectively) he got me a Zelda but said the guy before me took the last Wii Play. So I guess he didn't pre-order the game just asked for it on the day, either that or the dude was waffling.

Secondly I popped into currys.digital near the Bank of England, on the door they had "We have no Wii's and will not get any before Xmas". Popped in to check for Wii Play, nothing. As I was there heard a young mother talking to the shop assistant:

Young Mother: You didn't get any?

Shop Guy: No, none. Sorry keep your receipt and head office will be in touch.

YM:OK thanks.

ME: What's that mate, are you talking about the Wii? How many did you get?

SG: None, Nintendo didn't send us any.

ME: None? What none to this store?

SG: No the whole group, PC World, online, nothing!

ME: What?! No accesories either?!

SG: They sent us one nunchuk. I think they are taking the piss.

I would have bought it if I got Wii play!

Has anyone got one from Currys, PC world, Dixons group in general?
