So it sounds like when the the Wii U I pre-ordered at toysrus.com shows up next week, back to the store it goes since I grabbed one in store from Best Buy on launch day and trying to make a few extra bucks reselling them is a waste of time right now. Actually, glad people are finding these at retail.

Anyone returned anything in store from toysrus.com before? Is it no hassle?


Much to this threads delight, you are going to have issues. You cannot return an online TrU order in store and get your money back the same way you paid, you can only get store credit.

So you'll have to ship it back at your own expense (assuming nothing is wrong with it). I would laugh at you except I'm in the same boat. So I'll laugh at the both of us instead. HA HA!

Thanks for the resume, but this isn't up for debate. You are still talking about graphics when you could buy a computer at any time if that is what pushes gaming forward for you.

I'm as excited for the other 2 consoles as anyone here, i'm just pointing out that you're dead wrong, and obviously have no clue what "console gen" means if you're this confused about it. I have no doubt that the PS4 and Xbox 3 will be more powerful. I honestly have no idea why that was brought up.

Curious though, do you feel the same way about the Dreamcast? Or you know, every other first of its gen console that didn't end up being the most powerful? You're welcome to think its underpowered, but there is no need to be willfully ignorant.


Ouch.

I wouldn't even call it a debate. One person is erroneously spouting b.s. while the other is not. A generation has never been framed by the power of its devices. It's simply a marker of time.

If Nintendo wanted to make a supercomputer with onboard A.I. capable of buttering toast, they could easily build it. That is obviously not their angle. Every generation preceding the wii, Nintendo has matched (and in some cases, outmatched) the competitors' offerings on the tech front. It's rarely a winning formula. @slowdance is right...the only people who care enough to b*tch about graphic thresholds should have enough sense not to play on consoles.

So shouldn't this thread be locked or something? Preorders are done, stores are getting new shipments in, the console is in the wild...not really seeing a need for this anymore.

I have to bite my tongue to not respond to anything here, I wish it would be moved.

I'm pretty sure each console is tiedforto a serial and that they're pretty strict about it. I could be wrong, though. Plus...every walmart is different, so you might get a lax one.

Yeah, I meant to shut this down a few days after the console launched but just got busy with my own shopping ;).

I am closing it now. Discuss the Wii U in this thread:

FWIW, I went to Fred Meyer today and saw both versions sitting in the case. So far this is not like the Wii launch - not sure if it is more supply or less demand or a combination of the 2, but it is what it is...
