Ah, nice. Thanks for the clarification. A charge dock makes the deal alone.

So you can't charge the controller with the basic bundle at all? You have to buy a separate accessory? Like the 360 controller? Aww crap. That sucks.

I do have a Deluxe for pickup at Wal-Mart, but as a backup since I know it will fall through I have a basic bundle shipping to me. I didn't realize the cradle was for charging. I'm not a freakin' noob either, so I have no idea how I missed that!

Oh wait, the controller has an AC adapter. SO I guess there is still hope for me yet.


You can charge the controller in the basic bundle. The dock just acts as a pass-through for the standard USB charging cable.

so you camped for an xbox, wii and ps3? the ps3 launch was probably the most hectic and hardest to deal with. you literally had to camp two or three days ahead to snag one.


I camped 4pm the afternoon before the midnight launch for PS3 and got one. :)

Nope, I've never camped. Preorder then walk in and pick up. What's the point of preordering if you have to camp to get it?

I visited the Target store where I found my deluxe reservation card. I talked to two different managers. This is what I discovered:
- The first manager didn't even know Target did wii u reservation cards. He then changed it to, "you could use the card at any target", and then changed it to "it is first come,first served".
- I went back this morning hoping to find a manager who would also be working Sunday. He did not know how they would be handling the preorders. He had never even read the back of the card before. He also thought the card could be used at any store and did not know that the color on the card indicated which system was preordered.

I will go to my Target store around 6. I am not comfortable "camping out" by myself. Hopefully, everything will work out for us. I did order a white Mario bundle from Target online and it is marked as "shipped", but I would really prefer the deluxe version for my family.

Well shit, I purchased a card as a backup. Like I said before, this seems to be a "fast pass" card instead of an actual hold on the system.

Too be fair..score is the same from earlier releases with just an added small wii difference section.

I wish these reviews would go into more technical differences.

Anybody going in to grab a system just to put on layaway? I only have a Kmart and a Walmart in town and thought about going to both for the hell of it.

Preferably Kmart because doesn't Walmart charge a fee on console layaways?

I went to the 24-7 Wal Mart 5 minutes away from my house and there was seven old bald men and their fat daughters or trophy wives there waiting so I left. It was too much of a scene.
