*Rumor* October 9th Gamestop taking Wii pre-orders


"I just got the call my friends. Mark your calendars! October 9th, for one day only, Gamestop will be taking pre-orders on Nintendo's forthcoming console Wii. You heard it here first gamers. GET READY!!

Apparently Gamestop employees have received an email today regarding the preorder issue. Not too many details were given other than the 9th of October is going to be the magic date."

If this is true Monday October 9th is going to be a crazy day trying to get your Wii pre-ordered because that would be the ONLY day Gamestop is doing them. Game On is a friend of mine and I do trust what he says, but I don't want to scream that this is completely true until we hear from Gamestop themselves. This sounds like it could be it though.

Believe me I am doing everything in my power to see the e-mail myself. I think that this was supposed to be a more confidential info. and I will know more within the next couple of days (the managers conf. is going on now). As always I will keep you updated.

Thanks man, I really hope this does come true because if we can't pre-order the Wii, there is no for sure chance we will get one on launch. I just like knowing I'll have one with no doubts in my mind. Thanks for keeping me posted.

I'm a Gamestop Employee, and I never recieved this e-mail, neither has my Store Manager. I just checked yesterday, and I didn't hear shit. I could be wrong. I already got my money ready for pre-order.

Yeah I checked my Gamestop last night and they haven't heard of such an email either. They told me that October 9th is the day after they have their big meeting about the Wii and PS3 and that the pre-orders COULD happen the day after that meeting on October 9th but nothing has been said yet.

Keep those ears open ladies and gentlemen. Just remember where you heard it first.

Gonintendo is reporting a RUMOR that the pre-orders could start at Gamestop on October 10th. I hope its one of those days. I'll have my 50 bucks ready regardless.
