The Wii preorders started today. I went back and forth regarding whether or not to go get one. Ultimately, I decided not to preorder because retailers are not guaranteeing that holders of a preorder receipt will get a Wii on launch day. As a user on Digg pointed out, this has the effect of tying you to that one retailer; what if they run out, but someone else has a stack of ten? You’ve already made a deposit and you’ll just have to wait until that one retailer gets more. No, I think I’ll take my chances. And if I don’t get one opening day, so be it.
