I've never used layaway at Walmart and this situation I think is a first for them but maybe someone can answer this question. I preordered on Oct 14 and of course the release date is Nov 18 but I just thought about it, should I have made or make a payment tomorrow as think you have to make a payment every 30 days or am I wrong about this?

Read your receipt for terms of the contract. It says it has to be paid off no later than December 14th, or you will forfeit the layaway. I know people have worried about making a payment within 30 days, but the terms don't state that, and I verified with two managers.

Just got back from my local TRU. I asked if they were going to have any extra Wiiu's available besides the pre-ordered systems? My nephew wants one for Christmas. The manager who I know fairly well told me they still haven't recieved their shipment yet. But according to the numbers he is suppose to get, my TRU over sold the pre-orders by 37. The manager said they were going to get 6 Basic and 12 Deluxe. Looks like I will be there Sunday morning at 6am to make sure I get one.



Apparently you've got a clueless manager over there. All the stores in my area are getting a few more to sell on top of pre orders(at least a dozen in a combination of both systems). If a store were to oversell their pre orders, they would just move some systems from other stores to cover. From the numbers I've seen that is being shipped, this is not possible.

Thanks for the information, I have briefly (hopefully) misplaced my receipt.

TOYS R US HAS A BASIC MODEL BUNDLE LISTED FOR PRE-ORDER ONLINE, NO ADD TO CART BUTTON YET.

For those who missed out, this is now on TRU's website:

http://www.toysrus.c...&prodFindSrc=pn

It's a basic model bundle that requires you also buy Batman Arkham City and Scribblenauts Unlimted. It's listed at $419.99, and does not show as sold out. However, it does not have an add-to-cart button on the page as of yet.

My apologies if this has been posted already.

I asked my local walmart about this last weekend. They told me that there is no payment plan for their layaway and it has to be paid off by December 14th.

Last generation of consoles proved you cannot predict what is going to happen.

I predict the Ouya will replace all PC gaming.

No payments need to be made after the initial 10%. Until Dec 14th. Then pay it off and go home and play :)

i was thinking about doing that with my copy of nsmbu, but i wasn't sure if there was any different packaging on a copy from a retail store compared with one i'd get from newegg.



That's what I am afraid of lol, if it happens I will just play the dumb and say I got it twice and forgot which one was Bestbuy's.

Can anyone confirm if the games are exactly the same ones or each company has a different bar code??

Pretty sure companies have different barcodes, I may be wrong though.

I just could not resist to bring it home when I saw it today and I was hesitating since I got newegg preordered promo and I have not received an email telling me they have sent it!

Has anyone seen the new video explaining the network, miiverse and stuff? Makes me want to have it now!!

What I don't get is that the only playable game is Rayman and it is not even a launch game.

Probably because it makes the best use of the GamePad screen. Plus no sense in giving a demo for a big name game like Mario that people will already buy based on the name alone. Gives Rayman a little advertising.

Both of you are disgusting. You remind me of the people in congress who salute the flag then ensure they can by Armani. I believe, and I've always believed this, all veterans and active service members should be allowed 50% off everything in all stores, restaurants, medical facilities, and auto repair facilities and that these business should be required by law to do this. I also believe that all veterans and active service members should receive free shipping on anything they order online. Furthermore, I think that at any polling place, new item launch (in which they are allowed one item per military ID), and theme park, they should be granted a free fast pass to the front of the line.

I am not in the service, but I have friends and family who are/were. Do you know what it's like to be in a place that God forgot was there, while you have to kill or be killed? Where you really don't know if this day, Fuck, if this second will be your last because of a sneak attack, air strike, or suicide bomber? Do you know what it's like to not know if you'll have your arm tomorrow? If your wife is cheating back home? If you'll be able to spend this Christmas, or the next, or the next with your toddler? That's what I thought. And you have the nerve to get a tight anus because you have to wait an extra thirty seconds in line at a polling place? When the military are the ones making sure you have the right to be in that polling place to begin with? Or youre mad that you have to answer as to if Walmart has military discounts? I forgot, every vet should always have memorized every business that does or doesn't have the discount. That way you wouldn't have to spend .3 seconds answering their questions, you poor poor thing.

The Fuck is wrong with you?


50% off of everything? Doesn't sound very American to me at all.

Well, Best Buy screwed me over on my purchase. They billed my account the amount to hold the preorder. I kept the money in the account. In middle of the night, they notified me that my payment was rejected, and to call and correct the order. One minute later, they cancelled it. I found out that my my bank was holding the money for the preorder, but Best Buy made another request on top of the hold. So the bank refused to do two holds. Anyhow, Bestbuy.com could care less.. they told me to preorder it again, which is not possible or to just go to my store. I cant wait in line even if I want to with my disability.

So now, No WiiU, and I have a ton of preorders with Newegg for games and the new controller. Happy Veterans Day gift for me from Best Buy. The good thing is, as a vet, Im kinda used to being screwed over.


They did this to me too! I had a credit card with enough to make one pre order. But best buy.com suddenly makes a second request to hold funds. I didnt get a chance to even change the payment method. I called customer service and they couldnt reinstate my order! I was so pissed! But i got lucky when pre orders opened up for target.com last week at around 4am in the morning. My insomnia made me lucky!

Best Buy is the worst, I only buy stuff there if its a last resort. I have not bought anything there since Gears Of War 3 because they screwed it up so bad. And treated me like shit, like it was my fault. Try and stay far away from that BS ahole place.
