Wii Launch [w/images]

Did anyone else wait up for the Wii this morning? After waiting for hours since the pre-orders started in the morning (in my case, Wal-Mart), I was able to get the 28th out of 28 Wii consoles (I was later than most, since a debate tournament took the bulk of my day).

Everyone waiting was sent out to the garden section, there were around 40 people waiting. We had to check in every hour to secure our spots.

The sign telling others of our location:

Someone has a Wii!

Did anyone else have a similar experience?
