The Wait For Wii Is Over (Wii launches in Australia)

Thousands of gamers queued up around the country for the midnight launch of the Nintendo Wii game console last night.

Events were held at stores nationwide, including EB Games, Toys R Us, The Gamesmen, Harvey Norman and numerous smaller specialist gaming outlets.

EB Games was the most enthusiastic about the launch, holding midnight events at most of its Australian stores, said Brad Harker, EB Games' director of stores for Australia and New Zealand.
