Actually, you might be able to buy a Wii - Nintendo

Even without a pre-order.

Nintendo UK has responded to claims that it will be near impossible to get hold of a Wii before next year if you haven't pre-ordered.

"There are many hundreds of retailers across the UK who do not take pre-orders and as such will have stock available from launch," a spokesperson told Eurogamer this afternoon.

"We are pulling out all the stops to replenish stock in the run up to Christmas with regular multiple deliveries to all retailers across the UK in the hope that we can supply Wii to everyone who wants one this Christmas."

This after Hamish Thompson of DSG Group - the parent company of High Street retailers like Currys and PC World, as well as dixons.co.uk - told our sister site GamesIndustry.biz that he expected all subsequent 2006 deliveries to go towards fulfilling backed-up pre-orders.
