Wii Will be Available This Morning on Amazon
If Santa stiffed you and didn't get that Nintendo Wii system you asked for, you still have another chance this year to buy one... and then break your television or yourself.
Amazon.com will be taking orders for the ridiculously popular new video game system this morning some time between 7am and 11am, their website says.
Wii Available for Purchase 12/29: The Nintendo Wii will again be available for purchase on Amazon.com on 12/29, Friday morning, at some point between 7am and 11am PST. We will be limiting purchases to one per household. We anticipate that we will sell through our inventory very quickly as demand for this product continues to be very high. At this time, we do not have any information on future Nintendo Wii offers, but we will post updates on future availability on this page.
So get your credit card on file, restart your computer, and get ready to watch the Amazon servers take a hit. And may we suggest that if you are one of the lucky few who get the game machine, please use the wrist-strap so you don't damage your badass plasma screen while virtual fishing.
