The Wii conspiracy

Well, my mildly imcompetent father has failed at Wii buying (should have taken my brother as an example and done it myself), My dad took out a pre-order with curries (a relatively big electronics store) a while back, unfotunatly for around 27 pre-orders, Nintendo sent them 5, flipping 5. But, if my dad had taken out a pre-order with a shop like Game or Gamestation (no pirzes for guessing what they sell) then he might have had a chance of getting 1 out of 100, that's right 100 for game only shops and 5 for electronic shops. Conspiracy.
:evil:

if telling yourself helps you face the fact you didn't get a wii on launch im happy for you its not really a conspiracy because my ebgames got 20 at launch 10 for pre-order-10 to sell and we are a pretty small ebgames if curries is such a big store like you say maybe in your town but it may not be all around the world that why nintendo shipped more to the known strores. but don worry you will get you wii soon im sure of it.

when you do let me know what games you have

so far i have:
cod3
redsteel
zelda tp
trauma center second opionion
splintercell double agent

once i hook up my online for my wii we can game .

Well they also look at how much money the game stores bring in during the whole time the console is going to be out. Gamestop will bring in alot more money to Nintendo than an electronics shop that has everything and i guess the reward them with more consoles.
