Quick n painless here as well. Since I was the forst person there early, the manager had the associate there run through the proceedure with me, so I got to do it 1/2 hour early.
We are #1, and the electronics manager is holding all of them himself, in chronilogical order for launch day distribution at 12:01 am.
Nice n organized.
He also mentioned theres has been rumors of some wii U basic promotion on launch day, to appease people who can't get the sold out deluxe version. He said something like another game or controller probably discounted with basic wii U purchase.
If nintendo does supply massive numbers of the basic unit, it could be that deluxe prices on ebay encourage peopel to just buy the basic unit, and a pile of accessories instead of paying more for the deluxe version.
If that looks to be the case, we'll just return or cancel the second one we preordered, but we are hoping it'll help fund our upgrade from the basic Wii.
