It's not released until tomorrow so I wouldn't expect anyone to have one yet.

I have pre-ordered through Tesco and was hoping that they would deliver it on release day (like they do with the Harry Potter books) but I don't think I will be that lucky. My account says a dispatch date of tomorrow so we will have to wait and see.

I received this email on Sunday the 20th.....So am hoping a parcel force van swings by my hoouse today!!
I ordered my wii fit back in march on the 11th!!

We are pleased to inform you that your order has been dispatched by our team in Basingstoke.

Thank you very much for ordering from us here at gameplay, you should receive your package in 3 - 5 Working Days.

Qty Description
1 Wii Fit with Wii Balance Board [Wii]

My partner and kids returned last week from a 3-week stay in Japan with family. My partner's brother bought a Wii and several games just to keep them all amused whilst indoors. All three of them agree that Wii-fit was brilliant - although my son loved MarioKart - and my partner (female) was glowing praise about Wii Fit in a way she rarely does. It must be good! We are going to get it here too, but might wait until the end of summer when the prices drop and the days begin to shorten... or I may even pick it up 2nd hand from someone on here who has got bored with it by then...

I got my Time Crisis 4 2 days early last week - pre-ordered from Game.
Didn't expect it, but was chuffed to bits.

I can already see them going for silly money on ebay (£100 plus £23 postage!).

Someone even paid £162 !!!

ebay item 290224466195

Hope my £57 order from choicesuk comes up trumps. Might have to put it on ebay and get the mrs something else for her birthday ;)

Many AV forum members already got it (shopto, i guess)

Yes, well of course it is in suppliers' interests for us to think that. I doubt very much that stock levels won't be replenished until October. The same rumours circulated in Japan prior to and around the time of release, yet my brother-in-law was able to pick one up a month ago at about 15% below RRP in a local electronics store. It was released there in December 2007. You might be right - Nintendo may carefully control European stock, but I doubt it. They don't make anything by doing so, the middle men do.

I pre-ordered from Shopto and thet cancelled it!

I got an email from Play yesterday to say mine has been sent - £69.99 less £2.80 quidco - I completely forgotten I pre-ordered one :? Still can't decide whether to ebay it or not, unless someone on here locally would like it for an over inflated price LOL!

I agree, like I said I had forgotten I had pre-ordered and have probably paid over the odds for doing so. I would definately recommen wait until the supermarkets start selling this cheaper, better still leave it a few weeks till the hype wears off and get a second hand one for £35!

yes but you can pretty much guarantee they will be out of stock by 12:01AM :thumbsup:

members of staff will probably grab them before they even go on the shelves. An instant £40 profit judging by ebay prices.

Just received from ChoicesUK. Bah humbug.

Thank you for your recent Nintendo Wii - Wii Fit Order.

As you may already be aware, there is currently a severe stock shortage of the above product across Europe leaving many UK retailers (including ChoicesUK.com) without sufficient stock. Stock has now been received in our warehouse and allocated against orders in the order in which they were received. The stock allocation process has now completed and unfortunately we have not been supplied with sufficient stock to fulfil your order.

We are currently working with Nintendo to secure further stock at the earliest possible opportunity. At present Nintendo are unable to provide us with a delivery date, however expect further stocks to become available within the next 4 weeks.

Upon receipt of new stock from Nintendo, we shall continue to fulfil orders in the order in which they were received.

lol - Why do companies accept orders for items they cannot fulfil? They have lost me as a customer. They can stick their 5% up where the sun dont shine.
#16
Just phoned my local TESCO (Carnforth) and they definitely have it in stock and it will be on the shelves when they open at 8am tomorrow. It's a small branch so presume this will be available countrywide, from midnight at the 24hr Tescos as stated in yesterday's thread in 'deals' section.
#17
Heard nothing from Tesco by email,logged in now,says due to be dispatched tomorrow. If they were going cancel it surely they done it by now being day before,or least let us know by now going be a delay.
#18

Possibly. I wish they wouldn't tho!

Well I went on to ChoicesUK website yesterday to see how my order was progressing, it said "payment failed" !!! Then I realised I had cancelled my CC the day before (lost it at the weekend!) so I called up and asked the lady on the other end what was going on? she said to just give her another card etc.
Got home tonight and have an E-Mail saying it is dispatched today and should be with me within 7 days, hurrah :)

Shoulda bought one in Japan....


Haven't got a copy of Freeloader though and prefer to navigate in English in case the kids' friends want to use. The Jap vers doesn't have an English option...

MINE TURNED UP TODAY!!

I pre-ordered mine from Zavvi beginning of this month and it was delivered by Parcelforce today!

It is brilliant!

Get a wiikey(like £6 for a clone) and download wiifit, you own it, so it's not technically illegal


It's not my copy. My brother-in-law bought it and he has kept it in Japan.

Quite possibly! I am thrilled with it!

I honestly can't believe it turned up today! Zavvi sent it via Parcelforce on Wednesday so I was not expecting delivery until tomorrow or Saturday!

It really is a brilliant game!

CSIman - they haven't cancelled your order yet - you still have to manually cancel it if you get your wii fit from someone else. I have just bought mine from tesco due to choices UK - now says 'stock on order' so i have cancelled it. originally pre-ordered march 11th.

Thanks, I do know that but will keep order open in case my John Lewis order today falls through.

Yep same here - should be delivered today :thumbsup: hooray I'll be fit by Monday! :p

I got mine early this morning. I ordered from Choices UK on March 10th and was one of the lucky one's who didn't get their order delayed yesterday.

Had a quick go on it this morning. It seemed like it would be good fun, though my Wii Fit age was the big three-o (30)... and I'm only 25 :-(

Me as well - am sitting at home with baited breath hoping it will be delivered today!! Will be gutted if i have to wait till tomorrow - what a big kid I am!! Married mother of 36 behaving like this over a game!!

I spent 5 hours last night playing Mario Kart with friends and my 13yr old daughter was moaning she wanted to play on it!! WII is turning me into a bad mother!!!

My pre-ordered Wii Fit just arrived this morning by Royal Mail from Play.com

Not the cheapest around at £69.99 less £2.80 Quidco which tracked OK, but at least we don't have to go round hunting to find one in stock somewhere.

I'm still waiting for mine. My Parcelforce tracking says it was due for delivery on Wednesday...

Parcel Force brought mine today from Tesco Entertainment.

It's not a game, it's a lifestyle accessory. Don't you know? :whistling:
