There seems to be a trade embargo with Wales. I tried a few places last night.

Pre-ordered at GAME and got in at 7.15 to pick it up. Played it from 1-11pm yesterday with a couple of mates who came around and it's great fun!

Argos have some coming in tomorrow I heard if you want one get down there early

Impressions:

Amazing fun with more than one player. I've only really played Wii Sports and Wii play (Zelda's looks like it'll take a while to get into) but get a friend along to play against you and you just can't stop laughing...or ruining the furniture.

The OS GUI is slick and fast, faster than the 360 OS imo. It's well designed and the Wii Mii's are just fantastic!

Boxing is one game I found that is pretty unresponsive although it's still great fun. I can't wait for some more great games to come out to fully utilise this baby!

One gripe I've found is that the console is pretty lacking on the sound front. OK, it's got the Wii-Mote that puts out sound which is great but I found the music to be pretty appalling...easy listening rubbish and not much f8illing sound. This doesn't necessarily spoil your enjoyment of the console but it can be irritating!

Overall a great fun and definitely social console that is a "must buy" if you like gaming with your friends and want to get your family in on the action!

Frag m8, I`ve still got the Ocarina of Time sound in my head from 8 years ago (or however long it was).

The thing is with these games is that they`re put together so well u don`t even think about it once u start playing them.

I`d ABSOLUTELY love it if Nintendo wrote games for the PC.

They honestly remind me of the games we had 15 years ago where a bedroom programmer made them - and they play 1000000% better than those brought through high production companies that cost millions to develope.

Top marks for Nintendo imo.

I, like millions of other players, am buying it for Zelda alone (and the fact I can play the GC ones whilst I`m in the experience), after that the fact is I`ll probably pass it on as I did the N64.

wooo, this could actually help fat people who have an addiction to playing consoles.

Was watching the news earlier and it some people that were really pee'd off as they pre ordered and now the shops cannot fulfill them. All the shops are trying to lay the blame on nintendo. Nintendo said "the whole pre order thing is a scam, how can they say you'll get one if you pre order it, yet the stores dont know how many they will be allocated"

I couldnt agree more with nintendo. But some of the end customers need to get it into there head that with just about every console, there is always a shortage at release.
