GameStop / EB Games taking Wii pre-orders tomorrow

It was widely rumored that GameStop would start taking Wii preorders in North America this week. Well we just received confirmation today.
"GameStop and EB Games store will begin accepting limited pre-orders for Nintendo Wii console on Friday, October 13 on a first come first serve basis."
You will need a $50 deposit in cash, credit or trade. Limit one per household. If the PS3 pre-order is anything to go by you will need to be in line sometime before the doors open to get a pre-order in. Of course Nintendo is unlikely to have the supply problems Sony is predicted to suffer and many more Wiis will be on hand for launch.
I managed on getting a pre-order in during the Amazon window. Of course online pre-orders are pretty iffy at best. We are supposed to go to Digital Life tomorrow. I may have to be late.
