I bought 6 pre order cards at target. 4 and 2(wife). I left 2 black and 2 white on the hooks thus not being a complete douche. Sold both whites for 50$ already and one black for 75$ to people too lazy to go shopping or just wait in a line.


wow people are buying the cards? They had a bunch at Target yesterday still...

Damn the Bestbuy in my hometown is doing a midnight launch. I woulda loved to be there for that. I camped their for the Wii and it was just so much fun, my store recieved 84 units but by the time the store opened the line had wrapped around the entire mall and had over 500 people. Obviously with preorders its different but it woulda still been fun to show up at midnight.

Im at college so the one up here is as dead as a rock and I bet I will be the only one even getting the system up here. Hell the bestbuy up here isnt even getting demo units cuz its so small. neither is the gamestop.

Obviously the benefit is that the Wii U will be easy to get even without preorder, but I MISS the hype, at home theirs so much hype, here its dead!

It's because people feel that they are going to miss out. I remember when the wii came out and people were paying stupid amounts of money. I waited a couple weeks, walked into a Gamestop and bought one with no problem. These will be the same way.

I'm not so sure. I have read that the factory making WiiU is also making all the Ipad's, Ipad mini, Ipods and Macbooks... I bet nintendo is not their priority if this is the case.

Yeah, I read that Nintendo only made something like 1 million units for the US. People will once again be paying stupid money on ebay for these.

Bleh, no thanks. You can get a freebie code once per day and avoid the fat, calories and everything else Burger King brings with it.

I already got NSMB Wii U and Zombie U paid off at Gamestop. Just waiting until the 18th to pick up my black deluxe unit from Target. Was able to finally snag a preorder card at my local Target. Amped!

I've got Mario and ZombiU pre-ordered through Newegg for only $48. They keep sending those coupon codes out but they wised up and they aren't good for Wii U pre-orders anymore which sucks. Only negative is you won't have the games launch day. Guess I'll make due with Nintendo Land.

I've got a reservation card for Target too, just hope everything goes smoothly and I can pick it up without hassle.

Some people have reported getting games a few days early from NewEgg. I'm not holding my breath, but if Scribblenauts and NSMBWU come early, I won't complain.

I didn't realize those were available at newegg for only 48. I am going to try to only buy one game or perhaps just use the nintendoland copy that comes with the deluxe for a week in hopes that wii u games will be on sale for 45-50 on black friday

I got zombie u, scriblenauts, mass effect 3, assassins creed 3, and skylanders giants on reserve at newegg so hopefully they will ship early. I got my deluxe wii u and black ops 2 fully paid off at my EB games just need to pay off nsmbu and I'm good to go! Getting so pumped for this launch really hope my EB will do a midnight launch as well!

I ordered AC3 from Newegg for Xbox. Was "packaging" all day Tuesday, shipped Wednesday, and arrived today. So yeah, definitely don't hold your breath. Mario has the benefit of launching on a Sunday, but I'm still probably going to have to change my delivery address to where I'll be for Thanksgiving.

I hope that's not the case...or hope they can pull it up on their system. I doubt I have mine anymore. I thought that was the reason they scanned in the card at purchase...

If you come in with recipes you probably won't get a WiiU. Unless of course its for something really delicious or the Colonels secret blend of herbs and spices - thats shits valuable

yea but anyone can walk out with those cards and not buy them that's what the manager told me that's why he said to bring the recipe with me when I pick it up just for proof I guess.
