I really think a lot of the people who bought these just to resell are going to be in for a rude awakening. I don't think it's going to be anything like with the Wii's and PS3's, making HUGE profits, but who knows...

I'm hoping consumers have gotten smarter and realize if they search hard enough or you know, just wait a couple months, they can save hundreds of dollars by avoiding scalpers.

There's tons of them on ebay for the regular price. It's clearly not in demand the same way the original Wii was when released.

Plus it seems to have been far from a smooth launch:

Certain items I can flip for a few bucks here and there (like preorder codes I dont want), but the big ticket items I just can't. It goes just beyond the line of scumbag I feel.

I'm glad these are showing up in stores and people are having an easier time getting them than past launches. I feel bad for those who resort to ebay. Every console launch its the same crap and it depresses me greatly.

This time at least some resellers got screwed by the lack of demand and plenty of stock. Looking at ebay right now, tons of idiots trying to sell the $299 version for $380-400 with free shipping. Think about the tax and shipping costs and that's not much profit.

Lol, you guys are kidding yourselves. The shopping season hasn't even started. Global launch equals shortages. They can't get enough 14 year old Chinese to make these quick enough. Let's fast forward a couple of weeks then we'll decide if there is profit to be had.

Don't forget eBay fee of 10% + PayPal 3% fee. If they sell it for 400 then that's $52 in fees + 300 cost + probably $20 shipping, insurance, and signature required + sales tax. At a 400 sell price they will make maybe $10 -$20 depending on actual shipping costs + sales tax where purchased. That's way too low. Making 20 on something you spent 20 on is one thing but to throw down $300 to make 10-20 is just stupid.

This will be the first Ninty console in ages I've avoided at launch. Liked my Wii, but just can't justify the price of the Wii U and lack of any games I really want yet. Give me a new Zelda or Mario (Galaxy or otherwise, not just NSMB) and I'll definitely bite though.

I'm pretty leery of launch consoles anyways since my 60GB PS3 crapped the bed less than two years after I bought it. First and only console that has ever gone bad on me (well, unless you count the NES and having to clean the contacts, haha)

I never owned a Wii, but I'd buy a WiiU if it got some HD Collections of Wii games (like the Metroid Prime trilogy, Mario Galaxy 1-2, etc.) or even single Wii games in HD like Xenoblade. But knowing Nintendo they'll do everything except what I'd like them to do.

I'm liking my WiiU like I like my 3DS... great system, good concepts, but where the games? My wife and I are tearing through NSMB WU and will probably be done in a week... or fewer considering there are holidays. Might pick up Mickey 2 or Scribblenauts just out of desperation.

As for this deal... Honestly, bundles are in stock in a lot of places, but considering it only makes you buy a game (which you would buy anyway), this is the best bundle deal if you don't mind the not DX version. Owning the DX version, I can't say there really is much extra going for it unless you really like Nintendoland, and Downloadable game storage will need an external drive for either system anyway.

Well it's a launch so there's never many games...in fact seems like there's more than usual either out or coming out soon. Their mistake IMO was releasing ANOTHER "New" SMB game instead of doing something amazing to really showcase the tablet's capabilities. It should have been a direct sequel to Mario 64 (again, IMO) with a trip back to the castle setting and themed levels.

I still just can't justify one until I at least know what MS and Sony are doing, both what they're hardware will be and when it's coming out. Looking at newer games like AssCreed3, Halo 4, even PC ports like The Witcher 2...I honestly still pretty happy with my 360 anyway. The biggest advantage with the Wii U would be being able to play a full-on console game at the same time my Wife is watching TV...but that's not enough for me to get one.

I have to say...no offense to you, I'm not even touching on scalping...but anybody who buys a console for that much over retail THIS SOON after launch is pretty much, well pretty much an idiot. Got to at least give it a chance and check around for a few weeks. Or people really wanted one AT LAUNCH they should have waited in line or preordered and saved hundreds of dollars.

Congrats. That's awesome. There are a lot of people who are willing to pay a premium not to have to go out and fight for one. You performed a service, you took a risk, and you should be compensated for it. It's simple economics and market forces. It's not evil, it's good, and we're damned lucky to live in a place that lets the buyers and sellers decide what to and what not to buy, and at what price.

That's not bad, you made what, about $75 after all is said and done? Much better than the white units which still seem to be widely available. Those guys are going to start returning them I bet. The eBay and Paypal fees alone at that sale price would be $70!

Theres no point in buying a wii u right now. Most of the launch games can be had for much cheaper on other platforms (that we all have). Zombi u is meh and mario is literally a clone of the previous ones released on the ds/3ds and nsmb wii. Ill wait till next black friday

Same here. With a new Xbox coming out (and possibly the PS4) next year, I'd expect either a 50 or 100 MSRP drop on the Wii U + some nice bundles for sale. Meanwhile the other new consoles will come with nothing.

Nah, got it from Target with Red Card 5% discount + Free Ship + 5% Rebate Sites. After all that ebay fees and paypal fees. I would say about $120 give or take. Being top rated seller 20% discount final value fees helps. Money is money but I think I will keep the other one =)
