Dear Customer,

Due to a European shortage of the Nintendo Wii Consoles, we regret to inform you
that Play.com will be unable to supply your pre-ordered Nintendo Wii at launch.
As an Official distributor of Nintendo products we are guaranteed more stock
before Christmas, but Nintendo have informed us, along with all other official
Nintendo retailers, that the console will not be freely available until next

All pre-orders will be fulfilled on a first come, first served basis and we will
fulfil your order as soon as we can.

If you no longer wish to keep your pre-order with Play.com please login to your
account and remove the item from your Outstanding Orders.

Kind Regards

Sucks to be you, DS69. :(

This soooo sucks like absolute hell. Not being able to sell pre-odered Wii consoles at launch is a blow to those who want it real quick.

Dang man that sucks

GAME.co.uk are still taking preorders. i think GAME will have more stock

November 12th, 2006, 14:05
play.com are tax dodging *******s - and this is not the first time they have oversold pre-orders of a product.

i think retrowarez.com still have a few guaranteed preorders left unlike those jersey liars

i finally got a msg back from play.com, and it was a BS answer, so i cancelled my order there and i'm trying retrowarez.com.

if that fails, i'm might just Q out side GAME, with a mate at launch night, might get lucky

edit: update

email i sent

>>I just ordered a Wii from your site, and I was wondering if I will
>>be getting it from the launch date, or more importantly before

the reply

>On launch date, give or take a day or two
