I have to say that watching the clips of it in action, I've become more interested in the release of the Wii than any console since the SNES. It really does look like something new, and fun.

Ordered mine on the 11th October and they are telling me there's only a slim chance I'll get mine before Christmas!

I'm getting on the phone to Currys today to have a bloody good bellow at them

What does it say on the currys website in your account? Delivery Instructed??

If it doesn't, then you should shout Shout SHOUT about it!!! - good luck!

(Mine has not arrived yet though)........

It's on the PSP's Genesis Collection too :D
I've got it on the Gamecube since it's on Sonic Mega Collection.(Plus it's in 60Hz) So then I guess when I get my Wii I'll already have it available to play on that too.

Some of these pre-order sites don't seem to be very good. I pre-ordered with toysrus (Thanks to SirClive) on the 24th Nov. and it arrived today.
Its ridiculous that you can pre-order so early an not have a wii today.

I think one of the problems is thousands and thousands of people go directly for the game shops - looking at the people that have got there pre-orders - most are from the likes of Currys, ToysRus etc....

I'm still pi55ed off that play, choices and HMV can run out of games already!!!!

But if you wait five years the consoles will cost a fiver at your local car boot and you'll be able to download all the games from the hairnet...
