I wonder if Nintendoland will be a download game on the deluxe, or if you get a disc. I'm thinking it's a download (probably pre-installed). There was no sign that I saw of a disc in the Deluxe unboxing.


I can actually imagine them doing this. If half of my storage is taken up by a copy of Nintendoland that I can't remove due to me needing to download it again, I'm going to be kind of upset.

Edit: Thinking on it now, that probably makes the most sense. It's cheap, and it'll prevent a massive used market from appearing like with Kinect Adventures. I hope this isn't the case though.

If you notice the box in the unavailing did not have a picture of Nintendoland on it like the US one does. It also says at the end that the UK one is also bundled with a sensor bar and Nintendoland. The same will be true for the US version.
iGN will be doing an unboxing of the US version in 15 min

No direct link to the video yet but you should be able to go here and find it at 10 am Pst

No idea. But the page is still up on their website:
http://www.gamestop....nding/wiiuwait/


I have several Gamestops all within 5 miles of each other. I assume like preorders, each list is specific to each store. I guess I need to go to each location and join their list? Either way it is worth a trip to one on the way home. Thanks for the link btw.

Somewhere in this thread, somebody pasted an e-mail from Nintendo Support saying that the game will be on-disc.

So stoked that it's in a case. I'm really happy about that actually. Sucks that it doesn't include Club Nintendo points, but I'd honestly rather have the case.

Found this kind of odd and wasn't sure if its worth sharing. I had preordered Black Ops II for Wii U on Amazon (got my Wii U preordered at Target so hopefully it falls through). Got an email saying the release date has changed. My order status now says shipping soon with an ETA of the 10th. So I'll have the game earlier than everyone else for a system that comes out later... Also preordered Super Mario U but there's no change to that one (ETA 21st).

Any news on how Wal-Mart is handing midnight buyers? Since the entire itself can't close, do people have to wait outside or in an area of electronics or what? I've never done this before.

I did get that e-mail, but as I said, procrastinated on it. I called Gamestop earlier this week and they said they are no longer taking names for that list. So was that incorrect?


They have names until march and are no longer taking names

Probably form a line at layAway or wander around the store sinc it's gaurenteed, the only people in that line will be preorderes

Yeah, that is strange. I looked at the product page and even though it says November 18, it says if I order in the next 2 hours, i'll have it on Friday. Strange... too bad it's not a game that I want :)

For those still looking for a preorder, I was able to find a deluxe reservation card (last one) at my local Target. I called the past two days with no answer, so I decided to use my lunch to go and check myself. They still had 5 or more of the regular WiiU reservation cards left.

That ended on November 1st according to Wal-Mart's guidelines, so I waited too long on that.

He probably means that the only people that should be in the layaway line at Walmart are those that acually placed a layaway. If a Walmart has extra systems to sell for non-layaways, I'm assuming the line would be seperate so confusion and anarchy does not ensue. What hasn't been confirmed are how many systems each Walmart will receive (hopefully enough to cover all of the layaways) and what distribution methods will take place (1st to layaway gets 1st dibs, 1st person in line gets 1st dibs, etc.)

If you don't have the money, no; but if you do, I'd say quit being lazy and get your butt to layaway as soon as possible. You don't want them "accidently" selling your Wii U, do you? Why take a chance?

What made you think this me of being lazy?


The money is there, but it would be nice to save some up for Black Friday.

It would also be nice to save it up as a Christmas Present for the family.

Might go speak to the Layaway people and make them swear they will not sell mine.

So you posted your overly long "friend code" because you thought it's funny when you in reality have no idea how the system is going to work. Right. Gotcha.
