after running around like a headless chicken and queing up in the cold got my paws on a wii. Then scouring various stores and thanks to a fellow avforum member managed to get my hands on a wi-mote and play. With great anticipation switched on the console and it does not work. Before anyone asks, yes everything was plugged in but it was as dead as a donkey. For the 1st time ever was very moved very close to tears just because it was so anti climatic after all the build up. Have tried local games but I can't get through and the ones that i got through did not have any stock. So two options wait or get a refund. I will go up tommorrow and get a refund. Now am trying hard to get a wii but looks like my plans for a wii xmas have gone up in smoke and I am well under the weather - probably as a result of queuing up in the cold. So if anyone wants a wii there should be a dud one up in oxford street tommorrow. Anyway everyone have a very merry xmas. I am not destined for a wii this xmas.
