Pre-ordered... although my local store isn't going to be open at midnight :( Might have to go at 7 o clock in the morning :pinch:

Can't wait :bounce:

It wasnt a midnight launch at my local gamestation for the 360- i got up at 5am, was 1st in line- they opened at 7 :)

I'm going to get to my local gamestation around 11pm to hopefully beat the queue for 00:00 ! :D i hope thats enough! although it doesnt really matter :)

Actually some games will only support the classic controller, i suggest getting a classic controller and GC controller as you'll be guaranteed full compatibility. I believe Mario 64 only supports the classic controller and Nintendo have said others will only support the classic controller.

Nope, it's fine with the GC controller.

And yes, I have it so I'm not just going by the table on that page.

Are VC games a one off payment? Or after deleting them you're charged to download them again?

I decided I didn't want one, then last week it hit me I really wanted one.

However I've left it to late, cant get a pre-order anywhere.

I am out of the UK from the 8th Dec to 8th Jan so i guess i will try to get one once i am back. I would get Zelda, and see what else comes out until then.

You can d/l them forever for free once you've paid.

What i am saying though is that is better to get the classic controller as it will support every VC game now and in the future.

I was going to get one(A friend had it on preorder for me) but I only really wanted to play Zelda... after a lot of thinking I've decided to cancel it and just get Zelda on the GC and a component lead on ebay or something.

I can't really justify spending ?240 for a new console for one game that I can already play on existing stuff that I have.

That and upcoming games for the wii are rather naff at the moment.

I pre-ordered the Wii + extra Wii Remote bundle from PC world in early October but can't have it to Christmas :(

Well it's going to Santa obviously :D

Got one on pre-order but the stock date keeps changing, the online store I have it on order from now say they won't get them in till the 18th, at that rate mine will be sitting in a delivery warehouse over Xmas :(

cod3 is coming from play.com:p they say they got it in stock:O

Went to blockbuster last nigh and the Gamestation inside has CoD3 on the shelf and you can buy it! :blink:

i was considering buying this at some point - i'm not impressed with that sport game that they have been showing though to be honest!!! looks to simple and babyish - if they have decent games then i would consider it more.

I am! GAME phoned today to confirm it would be ready to collect from 7am on Friday. Can't wait. :D

Also getting Zelda (duh) and Wii Play, though they might not arrive on Friday because they're from various online stores (much cheaper plus I can always make do with Wii Sports for now).
