Finally ordered my Wii Fit

It is like the hottest commodities in gaming industry, Wii Fit is always out of stock whenever it is available. I'd spent almost 1 month monitoring the stock at various online stores and finally I beat the rest on the latest Toys R Us stock and got myself one. Hurray.

And I'm waiting for Wii Fit accessories after ordered it from Woolworth. Even the accessories are not available on the spot.
