Toys 'R Us Wii Deal Down Under
« on: June 12, 2006, 06:41:34 PM »
Preorder your Wii now and get a free game!

Do you live in Australia?  Then you can preorder your Wii from a Toys 'R Us store with a AUS$50 deposit and get a free (undisclosed) game when you pick it up in November!  The website does not provide an anticipated price for the system.    


This seems to be a limited time promotional offer from Toys 'R Us, and not a standard preorder deal for early adopters, though we may see similar offers appear around the world as November approaches.

So, that's around US $140 for the DS itself? Still not too great of a deal.

Speaking of Pre-Orders for the Wii.  I was wondering if anyone knew of any stores that are already taking pre-orders for the Console here in the States.

I talked to a Gamestop employee the other day about when they would start allowing pre-orders for the PS3 and the Wii, and he told me that because of the whole X-Box 360 incident that they probably wouldn't be taking pre-orders until October.

I haven't heard about Toys R Us or other game stores in the states.  Does anyone know of any stores that are already taking pre-orders, or some stores that PLAN to take pre-orders and WHEN.

Thanks!
I'm a student at DigiPen Institute of Technology, where I work on designing games and hope to do that for a living.

The U.S. launch price for the original DS was $150...so they got the system for a bit less and got two free games with it.  That's an amazing deal.
