I called Best Buy this morning and converted my order from shipping to store pick up. They made the change and within seconds, received a confirmation email and then I received another email indicating it was ready to be picked up. Called the store to check on it and they said that they received the ticket for pick up but it would be available on Sunday, not today. Bottom line is I have it confirmed and I will have it on Sunday! WooHoo!

Almost grabbed one from Target, but decided not to... $60 for Mario is too much, hate bundled consoles. Almost pulled the trigger though because I don't have to waste more time in the stores. The other thing pulled me back besides the $60 bundled Mario game is the shipping date... If I'm getting it, I want it before Thanksgiving so that guests can play it.

Got the shipped notice from Gamestop, but tracking shows they just printed the label. It would be nice if they did get delivered tomorrow, but Monday or Tuesday is all I expect.

Anyone receiving a shipment notification/tracking# is gonna have to wait until tonight after the packages are actually picked up to see where they are and when they will be delivered. If it gets picked up tonight for Next day air it might be delivered tomorrow.

Got a shipping confirmation from GameStop.com. GameStop in-store preorder is safe. Best Buy will be getting in 24 Deluxe for 8 preorders. I was also able to find two friends who missed out on preorders too, so I'm happy I was able to help them out.

UPS Ground takes, what, 5 days?

So the wireless on my modem doesnt seem to really hold a signal up anymore. Anyone able to recommend a good wireless router so I can get it when I get the Wii U since it will have to be connected wireless?

This guy obviously has no idea what people are willing to pay to get a console a day early.


Holy shit....that guy could have probably doubled that...

Yeah. I cannot agree more.

But there are always some idiot parents.


My sister in laws, sister in law would do this for her son. He is a straight A student and does not give his parents any grief. If you go the extra effort to get something what is the problem w/ making a profit? You go to college to get an advance degree. You should be rewarded for putting in the extra time and effort by making more money. My 2 cents. I will sell my extra to a friend at cost b/ if they do not want it I want to be rewarded for my effort.

I just got a netgear n900 and it has changed everything. We can have every ipad, laptop, console and smart tv online at once and they are all still blazing fast. Only problem is my TB PX5 headphones get a lot of static since they also use the 2.4 ghz frequency.

Yes i got an email.
No reason to go this early, people are nuts.
I went at 3:00 for the Wii at toysrus. we had bout 4000 people online, and everyone got one.
Heck they even let us buy 2 per person.

I am sure nintendo's flagship store will have plenty of stock to last Tommorow.

Wasn't the response you were responding to about buying their child a videogame console because they laid on the ground rolling and screaming that they didn't have one?

BTW, Target.com sent me a shipment confirmation email for Tuesday delivery and when I tried to cancel my gamestop.com order they said they couldn't cancel it because it had already been packaged for shipment even though the status is still just "open" on their website.

Why does gamestop.com say 5-10 Business days for shipping. When its using UPS Ground.

The game I got from kmart.com used UPS Ground and it came in 3 days.

I have this router, it's by no means best of the best but it's a very highly rated router and it works very well with my PC, 3DS, Wii & PSP so far.

Seconding the recommendation for the Netgear N-series. I have an N600, and it's sensational. You definitely get your money's worth when you buy a premium router.
