    Still not available - looks like they're releasing it at an arbitrary time

    It still says "We will e-mail you when this item becomes available"

    I put my e-mail in a month ago and totally forgot about that. Thought they would of opened preordeing by now.

    phoning them doesn't work.
    touch tones are not recognised - I've tried two different phones.

    Dunno if I got one or not, dispatch date seems a bit out.

    Although orders do seem to be closed again now. Hmmm.

    Hint: make sure that you haven't got anything that you don't want in the shopping basket.
    In my rush to get the Wii I just bought a 2nd hand book for £32 that I'd put in my basket 2 months ago! It's a 3rd party seller, so I've had to email them to request cancellation!

    The estimated despatch date for me is the 14th December - I'd prefer delivery of the 24th, otherwise there's going to be no presents to unwrap on xmas day!

    Cheers fellas, similar here. I was getting a bit worried that maybe somehow they'd taken more pre-orders than they'd intended. Unlikely I know, but after some of the 360 pre-order horror stories I'm taking nowt for granted !

    Won't be convinced til I see the postie !
