So here's the deal on Gamestop's Wii raincheck program: On Friday, Dec. 21 only head down to any Gamestop or EB Games in the US (PR included), viciously fight through the mob of people and make it to the register with your full $250 deposit. You have to go in person, and the rule's one Wii per household (it is a system for the whole family). You'll receive a "custom-designed" Wii game case containing your Wii entitlement certificate, so you'll still have something for your broken-hearted spawn to unwrap. One crushingly disappointing Christmas morning, about a month and a phone call later, you get to go back to the store and trade it in for a real Wii and maybe they'll love you again! Very exciting!
