Even with the Buy1, Get 40% off it isn't any better than newegg's $12 off $60 pre-order deal, especially with no tax and free shipping in my state. At least it is good for people who missed the newegg sales.

1 week to go!!!

I need a new signature.

Looking at the black friday ad right here. Says Buy 1, Get one 40% off, and then has ALL Wii U games bolded in red.

What are you talking about?


I'm talking about this week's ad. (If you don't want to wait til black friday.)

*Plus, 30 off two games is a better deal, just not as many games available.

My Target couldn't even hold my Pre-ordered copy of Paper Mario (they went and got it with the other copies).

I so don't trust them.

I also put a Pre Order for Aliens Colonial Marines.

That's due to the fact that no actual retailer has came close to running out of a new release game since.... Ocarina of Time?

What launch game are you taking home? Nintendo Land and Mario will keep me busy till toysrus' bogo on Friday. CoD and Scribblenaughts then for me. Or Assassins Creed III. Nice having options with a Nintendo launch. Been a while since that's happened!

I put my name on that list to get a phone call when one comes in. I am not to worried about getting the system on day one. I got burned by my 3ds when they dropped the price. Also I think the system will be in full stock after xmas and Ill have more money at that time :)

Just got back from paying off all but $.01 on my Wii-U layaway at Wal-Mart, While I was there I saw that they had the paperwork diagram out for the Wii-U display It showed that they will be getting in some deluxe and basic models in for purchase. They also had the SKU labels already out. I snapped a picture of the label.

From what i heard on Friday is that if you got a pre-order in your getting your console on Sunday (or when u go in to pick it up within 48 hours).

I asked him if they received there shipment yet and he told me "No, not yet but they should be coming tomorrow or Monday."

Also he made sure to tell me there will not be a Midnight release since there only going to be able to fulfill preorders and nothing more, so no extra units.

Cool, thanks for the info. This all seems too good to be true. Maybe they did play it safe and we are good to go. A little bummed about no midnight release..I am hoping my store has it.

Same, my GS manager said there won't be a midnight release. Hopefully this doesn't create huge lines in the morning.

Unless tons of people are showing up to beg for a console or something, I dont see why it would be THAT long, not like its gonna be like a CoD or Halo release with hundreds of people in line

After the success of the wii. I doubt there will be shortage of wii u. Nintendo is just trying to create a sense of shortage to hype the market more, get as much as preorders for it. Considering its releasing the console at christmas time, why would nintendo want to lose out on all those the potential sales.

Will Redbox have wii u games?


(I realize this is from a few pages back, but still relevant)

It doesn't seem like they are going to have any for launch next week. I actually chatted with Redbox support a few weeks ago to ask about their plans for Wii U and the CS Rep. said there wasn't any information about it. On their coming soon list they do not have any Wii U games listed either.

I was sort of hoping they would have some as I wanted to at least rent New Super Mario Bros. U for Sunday. Can't believe I'm actually wishing there was a place to rent games...

My BB still doesn't know how many they'll be getting, but they didn't sell very many preorders according to CS and the Gaming Department supervisor. They say they aren't in an area where it will be really popular. I'll be going in sometime this week to chat them up some more and make sure I've got that one in the bag. I'll be looking for numbers when I do.
