Wii Preorders Begin At Walmart.com Tomorrow
It looks like just about everyone is trying to get involved in the console launch insanity, and now, the online arm of mega-retailer Walmart will begin taking Nintendo Wii preorders tomorrow, November 1.
Announced in the company newsletter sent to customers, the available Wii preorders will likely disappear relatively quickly, so be sure to long on to Walmart.com first thing tomorrow morning to check things out. The announcement didn't mention any specific requirements for a preorder, but perhaps we should expect a modest down-payment to secure yourself a system.
Walmart has also issued a 30-page "Wii Buyer's guide," which can be found here for your viewing pleasure. Chances are, that consumer-friendly $250 price tag will make the Wii a hot item for this holiday season, so make sure to set your alarm and pay that cable bill...the early risers will win the day.
