By 9 a.m., the line outside Manhattan's Nintendo World store was snaking down the block.
The Nintendo World store in New York's Rockefeller Center usually sells out of Wiis as soon as they get them.
More than 100 hopeful Wii owners came from as far as New Jersey -- some as early as 6 a.m. with kids and grandparents in tow -- to get their hands on the gaming console best known for its wireless, motion-sensitive controller.
It's been more than seven months since Nintendo launched the Wii, but the consoles are selling so well that supply still hasn't caught up with demand. You can get one, sure, but be prepared to call around and arrive promptly when the shipments do.
