checked my email this morning, and got my best buy email for pickup. it says for pickup on the 18th starting at 11. they are doing a midnight realease, so I might avoid the mess then and just snag it in the morning.

trying to do everything I can on the honey do list, so I have tomorrow wide open.

My Deluxe set from Gamestop.com shipped last night!
I paid for 1-day shipping and it's apparently already in Chicago but it's not scheduled to be delivered til Monday, despite the fact that I live like ~1.5 hours from the city. :(
I really wish it was coming today as I have pretty much nothing to do all day...oh well.
I guess I'll just get up early and pick up my other pre-order my local Gamestop tomorrow. :)

You do realize this site is for cheap asses right?

Why pay full price, when I can get a deal.

For those with TRU home shipping, we probably won't see any updates until Sunday or Monday. Apparently they start processing pre-orders within 24 hours of the release date, so I'm not expecting any updates/shipping info today.

my NSMBU is finally at the preparing order @ BB, my WiiU and ZombiU have already shipped from BB, and my Scribblenauts has been payment charged from newegg.


I decided to switch my NSMBU to in-store pickup and it's now ready to be picked up, after the console shipped but not the game. Looks like I'll have my console no later than Tuesday - pretty pumped.

Good thing I have house chores to do to pass time.

If you go to the store and are polite and not a character from a Tarantino movie you will be able to get it from the manager. More than likely.

but those are cool characters man, but seriously no this walmart has probably the rudest people working there (bar some few people i've seen there who worked either at cash register or one younger girl at layaway who went out of her way to make an arrogant(prick) customer get what he wanted.

Size: Approximately 1.8 inches [4.58 cm] high, 10.5 inches [26.67 cm] deep and 6.8 inches [17.27 cm] long.
Weight: Approximately 3.41 pounds (1.5 kg).

Controller is roughly another pound.

The different weights is prob just the packaging they are using



the two plugs (if you got deluxe are heavy as hell).

For those who got their Best Buy in-store pickup notices for the system, are you in the east coast? I am in the west coast and ordered one online within minutes of going live and nothing yet. Order says checking store for availability. Should I be worried?

Just FYI. Every console launch I sign up for gameflys current trial. Now it's 15.95 for first 2 months. I paid and already canceled. For two months ill be trying and playing a lot of wii u games. I'm only buying Mario U at this point. This plan worked great for wii back in the day. And now gamefly has a center really close to me so should be even better!

luckily gamefly sent me an email to restart my subscription for $1 yesterday.

And they just shipped out zombieU and epick mickey 2 today.

now i just need to get a hold an a wii u deluxe system ;)

The Ups innovations tracker just updated.

Its the game from the target bundle.
prob going to do the toysrus buy 1 get 1 40% and return mario if it gets here after thanksgiving. (messed up thing is i payed for express shipping). At least they shipped the console by ups.

I have a suspicion they screwed up and shipped the wii u 8gb model.(the weight from ups says 5.1 lbs)
If this is the case, there will e some yelling :)

I was at BBY last night. The gaming sup looked up the preorder totals for the Deluxe version. Only 5 preorders were placed in store (2 are mine). 7 preorders were placed online for in store pick up. The store received 11 boxes (2 units per box). There will be 10 extra units for sale on Sunday morning. This is good news for the people who missed out on preorders.
