So by the way- to all who already have it. The system update is online now but it is very slow..... I am not done yet and have had it going a couple hours...looks to be a gig + in size. Good news is if your download gets interrupted, it picks up where it left off.

I'm waiting at our Wal-Mart right now. No one else yet, and three people are scrambling to locate them. They show all for preorders here, but no extras. No launch day titles out yet either. (I have them hunting down a zombie u for us. If tru has it tomorrow, well pick it up there on the sale, and return the Wal-Mart copy.

Is there any way to change the store pickup person for a preorder? I'm having problems with my leg and I'm supposed to stay off it this weekend so I was going to have someone else pickup my Wii U for me, but I can't find a way to change the person even though I've added them as an authorized pickup person on my account.

Unfortunately you have to choose before finalizing your order. No way around it after the fact. CS can't/won't change it.

I might try and pick up NSMBU and ZombiU at Toys R Us tomorrow morning, the only problem is I have Mario and my Wii U ordered at GameStop.....they should let me move the money I have on Mario to Monster Hunter even if it's the day it comes out, right?

There's already five?! I had a similar game plan (my Target opens at 8 AM), and I wasn't planning on heading over til midnight.


Yeah, I was surprised myself. We stopped in to trade my fiances iPhone 4 in since we upgraded her to a 5 today, and when we got here there were four people sitting outside playing monopoly. One of them was her since 630am.

Anyone in the the greensburg/Irwin/NorHun area should stop up at the n Huntington target. Now that I have my tent set up (yes, I brought a fucking tent because its cold), I'm pretty cozy.

So I'm at Best Buy in Tempe Marketplace right now. Line is around 60 people. Then a BBY employee ask everyone who preordered. I was the only one. Now I'm first in line. I'm getting death stares from everyone who didn't preordered.

Local Kmart apparently only got in 2 Basic bundles, no deluxe. Too bad.

Gonna probably head out to try and get my Walmart layaway in a few minutes.

Looks like the pro controller may be a bit difficult to get a hold of but target.com has them. Should work as a back up for some. Works out great if you have a redcard. http://www.target.co...um_1_1&term=wii pro controller

Anyone heard anything about the Target preorder cards? I'm assuming the preorders will be held but I may be naive.

I got an order in and called the store to see if they'd set mine aside and he said he would. Here's hoping. Headed out shortly to see if they'll honor it.


Already got a order cancelled e-mail.

And I already cancelled the KMart order because of my excitement over the possibility of a Wal-Mart pickup.

Fucked myself over. What a dumbass. :cry:

Thanks for the link might try and pick up one of these tomorrow in store. Don't really need one right away but would be nice for a few games.

You probably have a shot. The stores with midnight launch generally get a LOT more units.

That's only cause they jealous that you are a BOSS! And apparently the only one smart enough to pre order.

I'm at a midnight Bestbuy launch and they had 27 deluxe extras for non pre-orders. They sepersted the pre-orders and non pre-orders and gave out a paper to guarantee a system so others dont wait on line for nothing. Things should go smooth and I'm sure people gonna be pissed when they come tomorrow morning seeing it advertised and not being available.
