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?


It's called Tax and shipping but I'm returning it thank you Walmart. Rather have a game I want. maybe even two with TRU deal.

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?


I am here in Duarte, CA near pasadena and waiting for best buy to open. The status of my order waslike yours last night but changed to ''ready to pick up'' just around 7am. I didnt get an email notice yet but see the status on bestbuy.com

Guys, if you pre-ordered at Walmart remember that maybe you can pick it up RIGHT NOW as some people have done already since yesterday. Well that's what I read, just saying, good luck! (:

Random question to those that picked up the system early:

Is there a Club Nintendo code inside?

Just talked to the electronics manager at my Wal-mart, who coincidentally was in the process of sorting the preorders from the excess and guaranteed that I would have a preorder unit waiting for me at 12:01. He said I did not have to wait in line for it and could just walk in and get it, but the accessories and games were first come/ first serve. I neglected to ask how many they had but judging by what he said it was quite a few.

Just spoke with both places I had a preorder at:

GameStop at Village Crossing in Niles, IL is opening at regular time tomorrow, nothing special (10am)
Wal-Mart on Golf in Niles will sell their consoles at midnight, including the ones in layaway.

Both said they had enough to fulfill all of their preorders.

From GAF:


LMAO Best Buy just called me and wanted to know if I would bring back the console for a $25 best buy gift card.

I said No.

From GAF:


Since it's less than a 24 hour difference at this point, I'd take it back as long as I would be getting it again tomorrow. Free $25! I might have pushed for a free game instead though.

They don't usually have codes with consoles and handhelds. You would register those on Club Nintendo with the serial number.

The manager at my Best Buy just told my girlfriend that all preorders have officially been pulled and that I can show up whenever I'd like to get it. She advised a little after 10AM so that I don't get confused with the Black Friday line that has now wrapped around the corner of the building.

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.


If you pre-ordered IN STORE with the $5 down, I don't think Best Buy will notify you that your item is ready for pick up. That's only for people who ordered online with in-store pickup. They will just put your console aside at CS and you go in and pick it up within 5 days of release.

At least that's how it SHOULD work.

With my DS XL I had to register both the serial and a separate CN code.

Yeah. I live near Los Angeles and all three of my usual BB's already have lines for BF. Tents and everything. Its a bit wet out right now too and they're still there. Last year it started on the Tuesday before, so I bet these are people that missed out then.

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

Wow, the Official Nintendo Magazine actually rated a Nintendo game that high? What a surprise! :roll:

There really only has been 2 new games that have a decent number of reviews for them. Mario and Nintendo Land have been getting good reviews. And you could look at the 3rd party game reviews for the ps3/360 for the ones that have them. The Wii U version could be a rushed port though.

I already have Assassin's Creed 3 since I believe Ubisoft when they said it won't be missing anything from the other versions.

So, I have one of those $5 Target pre-order cards, but for the basic model. Chances of walking in at store open tomorrow and getting a Deluxe instead?
