No GH2 at west madison BB. They did have the 360 wireless headset. Sounds like walmart will have at least 20 wii on release. With BB and toysRus across the beltline I figure its gonna be crazy around there.

I think Toys R Us is going to be the place to be for the Wii launch. It just seems to sound like they're going to have the largest amount of systems.

No Wii kiosk at the Far West Gamestop. Thankfully I was able to walk in... look at a few used games and get out in less than two minutes. The ultimate shopping experience.

I might hit up target for the system...cause yeah, the beltline area could be pretty packed. CompUSA might have some systems as well?

According to [url=http://boards.ign.com/nintendo_wii_lobby/b8270/130542464/p1}this thread[/url] at the dreaded IGN forums... they have a list of what each Target store will receive.

I'll cut to the chase on the Madison stores though.

West Madison - 111
East Madison - 42

Hopefully it's accurate, as I think I just found out where I want to pick up my system.

According to that site, both Appleton Targets are only getting 24 Wiis each. Sucks to be me.

If any of you guys are looking for a Guitar Hero bundle for cheap, Menomonee Falls Best Buy has them 10% off. Add in a GGC and it's $58.

Not quite Appleton, but close enough. My friend got a Wii preorder from Gamestop too, but it required epic amounts of luck and just a bit of debauchery.

If or when madison peeps find out info for wii camp they should post it. I will be calling west walmart sometime this week. If they dont let the line start inside till they had out tickets im going to target a few hours before it opens since they will have over a hundred of them.

How do you know how many Wii's Walmart is getting? I'm just curious since Target West appears to be getting 111 on launch day. This launch is going to be less like previous console releases and more like the PSP and DS launches.

I dont know how many walmart will have. The rumor is every store will have at least 20. I will be asking when I call to confirm what their plans are. I wish target was doing a midnight launch then difficulty would be avoided.

The West Madison Walmart isn't a 24 hour location is it?

I was thinking of driving down to Beloit, as their website lists that one as the closest 24 hour from where I live.

Let us know if you get more information about the Madison stores though.

a midnight launch at Target would be sweet. I'm not looking forward to getting there at 6 or 7 AM on Sunday (they open at 8.)

I'm usually up till 3 or 4, so I may just drive over and sleep in my car in the parking lot that night depending on how cold it is. Wisconsin = Insomnia indeed :)

I just started a job this week. Hopefully I will be able to call WalMart before the weekend. The west madison walmart is not 24 hour. Wish the 24 hour one being built off broadway was finished. Even if its ghetto its at least warm.

Well, I just found out that the Walmart in Monroe is opening at 7 on Sunday. That's 15 minutes from my house, so I'll probably head there for one of the 53 that they're due to have.

If I strike out there, I'll have to take my chances flying up to Madison....

Sorry if this double posts.

Any Madisonians have plans for the PS3 launch? Which store seems like it will be most hospitable to us?

I only know one person that's even got a pre-order for the PS3 in Madison... so I'm not sure where the best place to go would be.

You can always try out Sears. They always have a few systems... plus, being in the mall, you may be able to wait inside.

Any other Milwaukee people gonna be camping/looking for a Wii on sunday? I'm probably gonna try the Best Buy in Greenfield first, since it's the biggest and likely to get the most systems. Then I'll be at the circuit city off bluemound if that fails (or first depending on that coupon)

Just went to the East Madison Best Buy to try and pick up some Wii games and they wouldn't sell them to me. Zelda I could understand... but the others... Oh well. Considering they had 4 PS3 games for sale, it seemed a bit odd to be holding out on one system and not the other.

I'd go with you but the radio said it was going to snow :( I don't know if I want a Wii bad enough to camp overnight. I saw the PS3 lines at CC and BB on bluemound were BAD. The CC on 27th st was 8 deep and supposedly they only had 8 units, the BB didn't have anybody so I think they wanted no campers.

So we went to a Madison Shopko last night to see how many units they were getting. They say 4, look outside only 1 guy. So we quick run home and grab all our shit, and get back and the guys friend showed up also, so with us thats four. So we sit through the night, we ended up watching Scrubs for about 10 hours. Then this morning, some lady comes outside and informs us they are only getting 2 and it has always been 2.....what a great experience.
(I need the money to fix my car, otherwise I wouldn't think of camping out for it.)

If that coupon is going to work let me know so I can camp there. Otherwise it looks like Best Buy Mayfair for me

Hit up West Towne at about noon, the Best Buy had about 30 in line, Target had about 20, Circuit City only 15, but their sign said they only have 6

So no go for me
