I went fishing for a Wii U today.
Didn't go to Best Buy
Target - 1 plain (and was gone later that day when I went to get games)
1st Gamestop - 1 plain
Toys R Us - 3 plains
I called another Gamestop and they had 1 Deluxe left.
They gave me $170 for my PS3 Slim (which is an extra one that came with my TV) and I made the deal.
The guy at Gamestop didn't even turn it on and didn't seem to mind that I gave him the non dual shock sixaxxis controller.
Now if I can only connect to the Wii Shop channel to move my stuff, I would be golden.
