We got there at about 10pm and the store opened at 8am. We were like 20th in line. This was Philadelphia, so obviously a big city.
I happened to walk by the local Best Buy tonight that is doing the midnight release and there were already some people camped out in chairs and blankets. After much deliberation I don't think I'm going to be able to stomach the outside wait.
I expect that by January it will be easy enough to get a hold of one, and perhaps if Nintendo is right then the stores will be continuously stocked throughout the pre-Christmas weeks and I can always check back. There's no need for me to rush and get one immediately.
