FYI, bestbuy just shot me an email saying they backordered my wii-u deluxe pre-order. So beware with bestbuy.


Was this for an online delivery order, online in-store pickup, or kiosk order?
When did you place your order?

Just went down to my local Fry's to pick up Kirby and I stopped to ask the gaming employees about in-store Wii U pre-orders. They said they were taking them, but you have to pay for it in full and then come back and pick it up on release date. We'll see if that's their official policy but for now that's what they are doing.

Just put my order in at frys.com for a black 32GB unit . Hopefully they'll be able to fulfill this order on release date.

I can confirm that that my order came back as back ordered. I ordered mine on their site and got the e-mail last night that it was back ordered.

I'm pretty sure I selected for it to be expedite shipped to my house because it kept saying that I couldn't do in-store pickup.

Just placed an order for the 32GB at Frys. I choose 2nd day shipping so I hope to get it day or so after release.

Yeah. I placed the order as soon as I woke up yesterday. Im going to the store today to see what's up and going to see if I can get it done in-store.

If not, I'm a premier reward zone member so I may call their special number to get some answers.

Just some advice I learned from the whole HP Touchpad debacle:

Online retailers fulfill orders by shipping speed. It doesn't matter if you were the first to pre-order, or the very last. Those people who pay the nice $40 premium to have their item over-nighted will be given the inventory first. Of course, none of them retailers will admit this, but it has been proven.

well, I preordered from bestbuy and my order says in process. Keep dreaming if you think everyone that preorodered from any source will get the wii u



The email says my order is backordered, and I would get it in 7-31 days from today (which is before the release). When I check the website it still says processing just like yours. I don't know what to believe so just going to cancel.

Background on my order : It was placed on thursday night, they did put a preauth on my credit card for the full amount. It was for a delivery order.

I know many of you guys work retail, and think that in store pre-orders are more important because your boss feeds that shit to you. It is not true, they would much rather book a sale where the money is for sure there than some kid coming in with 5 dollars. It just is not the case to the businesses, the online orders are just as important if not more because they make more money on the sale. For the guy saying it is easy to send a cancellation email, from your corporations standpoint it is not easier. When you send a cancellation for an important order, you guarantee the person will not order online or in store killing two forms of revenue with one email.

Yeah, the product pages are gone at Frys.com

Google cache shows what they used to look like earlier.

Google Cache - Frys.com DELUXE

Google Cache - Frys.com BASIC

Now those pages are gone.

you guys are such dicks! I had no intention of pre-ordering but I ran out to BB this morning and preordered the deluxe at Best Buy. I figure $5 now and plenty of time to think about it.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Went ahead and pre ordered in store at Best Buy this mornin even with chance of being placed on backorder. Since other places show sold out and won't even give you the option for the deluxe. I'll quote Lloyd Christmas: "So you're telling me there's still a chance!"

If I end up back ordered, that's ok as long as I get one before Xmas. At least not paying for some crappy bundle.

Yeah, I figure even if it's not release day, I'll be among the second shipment allocation if I preorder now.

I have added the Wii U Deluxe/Basic for Walmart to the main page. For some reason it does not come up in a Walmart search, only the bundle does. So I'm listing them all separately. They are all still available.

I hope so. I'm in the same boat. I ordered within minutes of the systems finally appearing on bestbuy.com. Black deluxe set with in-store pickup. I really hope I get one day 1 with no headaches!

Both versions are, of course, now sold out online at bestbuy.com and store pickup is unavailable for every store listed. Hopefully that's a good sign that they have their stuff in order.

I wanna get it from walmart but don't wanna pay upfront like this. Still not sure if i want it or not so paying full for it maybe isn't the best idea. Do they actually charge you or is it still pending?

We are in the same boat I also ordered deluxe. Do you know when we pick up our console we can apply reward certs to the order? Would like to apply RE6 and dishonored when I get the 20 each.

According to my confirmation email, NO:

If you're paying by credit card or Bill Me LaterĀ®, your account will not be charged until your order ships. If you see a pending charge on your account prior to your items shipping, this is an authorization hold to ensure the funds are available. All other forms of payment are charged at the time the order is placed.

It's a pending charge, I should have been clearer. But yes you need to have the money upfront if your using a debit.

I was able to preorder at a Best Buy kiosk. Who knows if I get it on launch day, but it was worth a shot for $5 + tax.

Also, not sure that I should have been charged tax on a preorder, but whatever. I wanted to get in the queue.
