Anyone that already has a Wii U know if Nintendo has released that update yet for the online?

Argh! Just got off the phone with gamestop to find out what was going on with my online order. Turna out their address verification system rejected my card. It is weird because the preauthorization went through fine and my address was correct. However, we added my middle initial and the 4 digit zip code extension and the guy put in a request to process again. Fingers crossed! Bothers me that they did not attempt to contact me about it, though. No email or anything

I was one of the ones yesterday who got the email from Toys R Us about a delay in my preorder, but just got another email saying my Wii U Deluxe will be available for purchase starting tomorrow. Guess they got the shipments in now.


I received the same emails. Walmart lay away already confirmed for pick up after 12:00 AM.

I have been trying to update since Friday - still nothing as of 5 minutes ago. It is not so bad though - just no miiverse/ shop channel. Everything else works perfect.

depending on where you live, but i think so. at least that is what im hoping myself

just have to call around, and find out which store has the most extra units after preorders.

I also had an issue with gamestop.com saying that had a problem authorizing my credit card. Called the credit card company and they said there was no reason that the transaction would be rejected. I ended up contacting Gamestop after that, asked them to try again and day or two later the transaction was completed. Hopefully things end getting resolved for you.

Best Buy has my Wii U and NSMBU listed as ready for pickup! I have church until noon, so I'll stroll in afterward tomorrow when all the craziness has subsided. Awesome.

This sucks, I ordered a Deluxe from Walmart.com and it still says processing, will arrive 11/20. It probably should have shipped by now since others have. I ordered it on 9/16.

Ok anyone who bought Zombie U don't open it! It's awful watch this review and return it unopened!

Truly awful. Glad I bought at Walmart, it's a bundle but everything was full retail, so no reason they won't take it back 67.94 after tax and shipping its going back.

So you're basing your purchase off one dumbass review? Talk about lack of conviction and independent thinking. Please return your copy so someone who has a back bone can enjoy it.

The guy found a way to work around one of the main ideas of the game (getting your stuff back from your old character) by playing the game in a boring way. Wow...

They had my credit on hold since my order date. Target is just another shit business where they will reject the honor of first come first serve in order to sell these bundles at a premium, and fulfill those orders. Also, floor manager hung up on me after hearing what i had to say. He didn't even respond .


Believe me, I'm not trying to defend them in any way at all. I was just trying to figure out why they would cancel only some of the original preorders and how they decided which ones to cancel.

If you watched the review ... Thats all I can say. Not worth 70 dollars.

Gamespot is prob the worst place for reviews. They seem to just enjoy trashing everything that comes out.

And why did you pay 70 for a 60 dollar game?

ugh, come on kmart. still processing.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

According to this article, the Nintendo magazine rated ZombiU 92, better than NSMWIIU.

Anyone have the word on what to do for best buy in store preorders?

My $5 down doesn't instill a tremendous amount of confidence in them setting my unit aside. Plus, they never pulled my BO2 Hardened Edition online in-store pickup order and I almost missed out on that, so their recent track record for my store is less than stellar.

Just not feeling like camping out.


I did the same thing $5 down and preordered in store. No contact yet and I am not confident BB will hold it. Doubt I will be able to sleep tonight.

Mine states that as well. I was thinking of calling and seeing if I can snag it today. Doubt it, but worth a shot.
