EB, GameStop Says Wii Pre-Orders Start Tomorrow

Color us unsurprised when, two days after PlayStation 3 pre-orders started (and quickly stopped upon sell-out) Wii pre-orders will begin. Coincidentally, it's the same separation of days between the launch of both machines in November.
After receiving mixed opinions yesterday when calling 50 GameStop/EB Games locations across America, we can now confirm via calls to several stores in the Florida area that Wii pre-orders will be accepted tomorrow at all of the chain's retail stores.

Much like the PS3 pre-order campaign, the systems will be available for reserve on a first-come, first-served basis. Unlike the PS3, which required a $100 deposit, the stores are only asking $50 for Wii.

With the apparently massive amounts of Wii units -- at least one million -- promised by Nintendo for the North American launch, who's seriously planning to camp out and pre-order?

This is true I was told by manager the very same thing.

I've been waiting to have the chance to make sure I get a Wii at launch. Sweetness.
