GameStop has provided more details on Nintendo's previously-announced reservation program for sold-out Wii consoles during the holiday season, through which customers can reserve a Wii for pick-up in January 2008. GameStop clarified that Wii reservations are only available on Friday, December 21st, and must be made in-person at any GameStop or EB Games location in the U.S., including those in Puerto Rico and Hawaii. Reserved consoles must be picked up by January 25th, 2008. Reservations require payment in full at $249.99 plus tax, to guarantee delivery in January. Customers receive a custom-designed DVD case with a picture of a Wii, and Mario wishing, “Happy Holidays! Your Wii is on the Way!” Inside the DVD case is a guarantee slip that provides gift-giver guidelines and an explanation of the gift receipt. The retailer says a limited number of reservations are available at each store, and only one reservation per household may be made. When the reserved Wii console arrives, the gift-giver will receive a telephone call indicating that their system is available for pick-up, and consoles must be picked up at the same store where the original reservation was made. Says GameStop, "While many store locations will have Wii in stock for immediate purchase during the holiday season, quantities are limited. As such, GameStop is offering this exclusive reservation program to provide peace of mind to shoppers that may not be able to locate a system in time for the holidays."
