The Wii U queue has already started in London

Wii U isn't released until Friday but hardcore Nintendo fans have already started queuing to buy the console outside HMV in London's Oxford Street. Izzy Rahman has been camping with friends Sing Duong, Michael Djuma and Teddy Djuma outside HMV since Saturday night in order to become the first person in the UK to buy a Wii U. (Wii U)

Nice.

Happy for my friends across the pond getting ready to experience Mario in HD. I have Nintendo Land, Mario Bros U and Zombie U and like all three titles. Nintendo Land was the big surprise... I knew it would be fun, but it's even better than expected. My wife and I will play for hours on end.

Im guessing these guys dont have jobs?

Apparently "Sing, who has taken a week off work to be at the front of the queue". So this guy used his Holiday time/ no pay for a week to queue for a console that is fairly easy to pre order in most shops or online. I do worry about the lack of sanity

Why does it bother you ? a group of friends having a good time, why do you even care ?
richierich  +   828d ago
So how do these guys go to the bathroom when they have to??? I just hope its worth it in the end for them. I would go crazy of boredom within the first hour but I guess this world is full of all sorts

why don't just pre-order?

I preordered this time but I camped out for the Wii. Camping out is fun. It was like a Nintendo party. Some guys brought a generator, a TV, and a SNES and let people play. Everyone else was playing Mario Kart together on their DSs. Another guy was giving out beer to the over 21 crowd. It was good times.

That sounds like fun!

Is it really worth the cold/rain to stand in line for hours for a console :P?
fredrikpedersen  +   828d ago
Why does it have to be cold/rain? Why can't it be warm/sunny?

And besides, everything is fun with the right people-

Get a job and preorder instead of making a fool of yourself camping in a paper thin tent outside a store. Sad to see these people.

Sony gave away a top of the range 3d tv to the 1st person to buy a PS3 I think

It is a bit disconcerting seeing four grown men in a small tent,,,,
