Munich. Germany. Reader Julian gives the skinny on the Wii launch, writing:
The center of Munich was overrun by a group of about 200 Wii-hunters, who ran from store to store during cascading opening hours. Apart from a couple of people being there since 2am, most showed up 1 hour before store-opening. Many passers-by very bewildered at the crowds of people — something you rarely get in Germany. Some stores had 20 Wiis in store, some had only 3, so there were many unlucky people. What is interesting is that in all stores that I saw NFS Carbon and COD were not selling any copies...Love it. German Nintendo fanboys/girls doing their part to freak out the locals.
