Did you/will you pre-order/purchase a PS3 or Wii?

Pre-ordered 2 Wiis, 1 PS3 - #5/6 at my EB on the Wii, #20 on the PS3 at Fye. Likelihood I'll get the PS3 before X-mas? Around 30%.

Tried to preorder a Wii this morning, but was too late.

Bastards.

I'm going to wait for the PS3 to work the kinks out... I remember the early problems with the PS2, and don't want a repeat.

Despite getting up at 7:30am and driving to about 900 different stores, I was not able to preorder a Wii. If I don't get a PO when another chain starts taking them, I will be camping at Best Buy. Don't care about PS3 though.

I can't believe they let you preorder two Wiis, and also that you weren't stabbed by somebody else in the line after doing so.

In all my time at SF, this is the first time I have felt so hopelessly out of touch.

I have a Wii and PS3 coming my way. Not excited about the PS3 whatsoever. No originality in the first-wave software and of course, it's a Sony console so all the shipments until the next fiscal quarter will be of shoddy hardware that will last 6 months. I'm pretty excited about Wii, though the launch window is fairly weak. Twilight Princess fishing with the Wii-mote is insanely fun. Can't wait to dig deeper into it. Downloading Sin & Punishment and Doshin the Giant on the VC will be a kick, also. *EDIT*: No need to wait outside stores for the Wii. Nintendo is shipping bucketloads of units. They still haven't fulfilled DSL demand so they've learned their lesson.

Actually, my fiancee (who has a different address on her license) came with me - she preordered one, I preordered one. Huntsman - I'd take your knowledge of clothing over my waning video game obsession any day. I share the apathetic attitude towards the PS3.. I was mostly interested in purchasing it to hock on eBay. My first PS2 died in like 5 months (I purchased all of the last generation within 3 weeks of launch, can't believe I'm doing it again). I haven't purchased the 360, nor will I until MS comes out and says they've fixed all the hardware issues.. though there's a new modchip out that's making me think twice. The Wii looks fantastic - ordered Zelda/Red Steel/Trauma Center (fantastic on the DS)/Super Monkey Ball.

Not a preorder, but will eventually buy the Wii when it comes out, the originality in the control and the fact its a Nintendo machine has me sold.

I've got a PS3 pre-ordered at Gamestop. I'm purchasing it primarily to play Blu-Ray discs and Tiger Woods 2007. I'll pick up some other games, but I'm not terribly excited by anything else coming out for a little while.

FINALLY got the Wii preorder. Had to get up at 4 am and wait in line at Toys R Us all night, but it was worth it.

I absolutely can. Not. Believe. They are seriously calling it 'the Wii'

Everybody was surprised when they first announced the name, but I think the qualms have mostly subsided. Whether you like the name or not, it meshes nicely with Nintendo's new marketing strategy. Instead of a nerdy and portentous name like Xbox or the original codename, Revolution, they are shooting for a more accessible iPod type branding.

Played Wii at E3. Definitely going to get one. My advice to you all is DO NOT buy a PS3 to flip on eBay. They've been closing down PS3 auctions like crazy. I might, eventually, buy a PS3, so I can play Tekken 6.

I will probably buy a Wii, but want to play it first. It could be fun, but it could get annoying very quickly. And I'll probably wait for the new Mario game.
