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.

:applause:


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.

I just watched the latest youtube nintendo channel wii u "super mario" video, where they talked about all the interaction built inside the system. That actually looks pretty damned cool. And the local multiplayer for zombi u looks like a ton of fun!

Check out those latest videos if you can.

Plans are we'll pick up the wii u from walmart at midnight, and then I'll head out to toys r us on sunday to snag those buy 1 get one 40% off titles we want.

Are you literally retarded? You think ZombiU is going to get ported? To what console exactly?


There might be a version of it for the 3DS maybe?

What's the latest word on Targets? I have a preorder card from there, are they actually setting those aside or should I rush to the store early to be sure?

Considering it doesn't need the Wii U control pad it can go anywhere.

Xbox 360 with smart glass, PS3 with Vita interaction. I'm not saying it'll happen but totally in the realm of possibility.

They should hold them back, that is what the policy is.

We got our numbers for our first shipment the other day. My Target is getting quite a bit more than the preorder numbers luckily. I'm not going to say how many, but it is definitely more than 10 of each model and they gave us almost double the amount of deluxe models.

That did it for me as well. The Wii U was off my radar until that point.

Yes, very promising. Target is my backup preorder. I'm going to TRU first since they are opening at 8am on Sundays for the holiday season. Thankfully, gamestop.com charged my card, so that preorder will ship to my niece for Christmas.

Hard to read this without laughing. Vita? Seriously?

I do think they'll make Zombie into a multiplat franchise if it reviews and sells well though (Zombie X, etc).

Zombi is a franchise though. Zombi was one of the first game Ubisoft ever published, if not the first.

I paid off my console, controller, and Mario today at GameStop. I asked if they got enough in to cover preorders. They told me they got some in today and are supposed to be getting the rest tomorrow. That is extremely discouraging, considering I have to work Sunday morning. Does anyone know if GS will release my console to another person with my permission? If so I can ask somebody else to pick it up for me at opening. If not, I might be screwed.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why do people pay off pre-orders? Why not just pay it off when you pick it up?

Trading in games at certain times to take advantage of trade-in promos...if you get enough trade credit you can pay it off. Not everyone keeps hundreds of dollars of GS credit on their person at all times.

I do. I never know when I may need to use it and don't want it tied up.

My main reason for paying off my system preorder from GS in advance? I have a few Wii U launch title preorders through Newegg that will likely be charged on Sunday, and the last thing I want is my bank blocking any of my purchases believing they're fraudulent.
