Congratulations to Marwan Elgamal, from Wembley who has officially taken home the UK's first Nintendo Wii.Also picking up the Stuff award for gaming dedication, the 17-year-old camped for two days outside HMV's Oxford Street store. He managed to tell the BBC: ‘I am a die hard Nintendo boy’, before making his way back to North West London clutching his prized console.Meanwhile the chances of making like Marwan and picking one up are slim to none today. Nintendo's predicting a complete sell out on day one with hardly any units hitting stores other than pre-orders.Nintendo's also responded to the raft of dubious ‘Wiimote’ injuries and TV disasters posted on the web. In an email to all customers it's said: ‘Hold the remote securely and avoid excessive motion during game play. If your hands become moist, stop and dry your hands.’A&E departments are on stand by.
