From what I hear the quantity available for preorder at EB Games/GameStop was really low (like 14 per store). Sold out at every store near me pretty much as soon as they opened. Good thing I got my preorder from Amazon.com.
I read they will have over 7 million on the market before Christmas so getting one will not be much of an issue. The numbers will be so high that by the holidays you should be able to walk into the stores and find them on the shelves. Actually one campain is tat XBOX lowered the price of the 360 so you can buy a Wii and a 360 and a game for the same price as a PS3.
Yeah, it should be no issue getting one before Christmas. I'm not aware of any official price drops on the 360, but it can be found for below retail so you could get a Wii+360 for the price of a PS3.
Thanks for the heads up but I'll stick with PS3...yeah I think Nintendo Wii is childish and doesn't create new characters for Nintendo.
But maybe I'll pre-order it for a friend or something since Super Mario Galaxy sounds good.
Childish? Check the list of launch titles. Blazing Angels, CoD 3, FarCray, Madden 07, Red Steel, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, World Series of Poker - these are not childish games. Nintendo is trying to shed that image this time around, mostly with third party support.
I've never considered Nintendo systems to be "childish." Those "childish" games are some of most fun games I own - Mario Power Tennis, Mario Kart Double Dash, etc.
