Stupidly I've left it a bit late and this morning ordered wii fit from argos for delivery on friday,all went through ok and it states delivery for friday between 12 and 6.

Got the confirmation email but it states the following,is this their way of getting out of it if they cant provide enough stock to cover the orders? never noticed this on an argos order confirmation before and havent got any old ones to double check either:

This transaction was placed on Monday 21st April 2008, authorisation number
BLAHBLAHBLAH. It has been charged to your card but if we cannot accept your order for
any reason, we will provide a full refund to your card if we have debited your
account in advance.

I dont think that helps because they will be sending off wii fit too those who pre-ordered. I doubt there will b any in stock when you actually go to local argos

I know we release ours at 1pm on Sunday.

nacider - Its actually quite a cool little toy, VERY accurate as to your body positioning, and its not just about the keep fit stuff either, there are going to be a series of game based around the balance board (Such as the winter sports snowboarding/skiing game thats out later this year and is compatible with the balance board) And tbh, anything that'll get people up and exercising is great in my opinion, even if it is just a gimmicky version of a workout!

totally agree. and it act like a scale as well, aerobic, measuring ur BMI. Mayb overweight people worry that the board is too small to stand on. But i think it will b so fun. Cant wait for it.

It is quite small, but very sturdy and well built. I was fairly shocked when I first saw one of the boards, it looks fairly flimsy, but its sort of weighty and I wouldnt have a problem with jumping on it, it seems very strong!

yeah maybe so but I want one! I broke my neck a few years back,luckily I have limb movement but despite extensive physio and hydrotherapy my muscles need building up and what better way than with wii fit?:) the more excercise I get the less pain I have to deal with so to me it will be worth its weight in gold

Whats wrong with DDR :-D (Or StepMania) that keeps you fit, I'm knackered after playing that

DDR is the USA and Japanese name. In the UK they are called Dancing Stage. The wii version is called Dancing Stage: Hottest Party.

try ordering it to collect at your local woolworths... I've done this twice now on new release items 1st was 8th December 2006 (think thats right) when the wii was released... Bought it online and collected it next day (paid on the 7th)

The second item was Mario Pre-ordered the night before to collect in store.. Also got that on release day
