Got an e-mail from Nintendo World that they will be selling the Wii U on a first come, first serve basis with a whole bunch of other goodies.
I knew it.
Looks like all the shipments that WERE going to Amazon will be at the Nintendo World Store. I can't imagine anyone on line NOT going a Wii U.
I lived in NJ during Wii launch and got my Wii from Nintendo World prior to Christmas however I had to show up at midnight and wait for the store to open. There were lines for months. Same deal w/ Wii Fit which was hard to find for a very brief period.
