Anyone else wishing the deluxe came in white as well? Gloss black controller and fingerprints is going to make my OCD kick in. I have went out of my way to avoid gloss black handheld electronics for years due to this (importing a ceramic white v1 PSP, my DSlite was white, my iphone is white).
My other concern with anything packing a LCD screen on it is dead pixels. Even one will drive me crazy, so here's hoping the quality control is strict on such things.
While I don't wish the deluxe came in white I do wish it wasnt gloss black drives me crazy!.
Gamestop has the Nerf Kit for the Gamepad for pre order. I may pick one of these up to help with the finger print problem plus I won't be so nervous about my nieces and nephews playing with the Gamepad
The wii u controller- $80- Whenever Nintendo does decide to release it standalone i highly doubt it's going to be $60 like 360 and ps3 controllers are now ($50 MSRP for wiimote). It has a touch screen and camera built into it. Although it may be cheap to make I doubt Nintendo will sell it for anything less than $80. They will probably actually sell it for $99.
So that's $80 of the value right there.
The Gamepads when available to buy seperately are going to be quite expensive. In Japan they will be about $170 bucks and I dont' see them as being less than $100 any time in the near future
You guys are killing me here. I figured the WiiU wouldn't be one of those items I'd have to preorder but now I'm not so sure. I wonder though if a majority of the preorders are speculators because of the last wii craze.
I'm sure quite a bit of them are especially seeing how easy it is to preorder, no real time to be involved. Though I still think they will be hard to find even if all the horders don't pick up there consoles
Is TRU known to cancel orders? I just pre ordered the deluxe edition, but I am apprehensive about my order actually being fulfilled.
They shouldn't cancel it but I would be prepared for the back ordered email they will send out to tons of people. You will then have the option to let it sit on back order or cancel the order all together.
Just as a side note you can't return any item you buy online through TRU to a store and receive your money back, they will only give you store credit. You have to ship it back to them at your cost to get cash back
I almost kind of like the camping out to buy a system at launch thing. I did it for the Wii and the PS2. I'm kind of a nut about system launches also, I just love them for some reason. I hope ZombiU is really good.
If you have a good group of people camping out for a console launch it can be a lot of fun. I remember camping out at Circuit City for the Xbox 360 it was so fun. There were 15 of us in line, we knew how many they had so no one stayed long after finding out they were all claimed. No Midnight launch however some friends of people in line went to A Best Buy that had a midnight launch and brought the xbox 360 over. So from 1 am till 8am we were sitting out in the cold with camp chairs, coffee/Hot chocolate Playing the new Xbox, It was a blast!
