I talked to a rep on the phone and they said that they cannot hold the money past 7 days, so the money will be released and then charged every week until launch. Please Amazon take my money!

Wow you would think BB could handle things better, they are such a horribly run outfit. I don't buy much there anymore at all.

Yeah, I'm getting super excited for this thing. I will be off from work on release weekend so I am really pumped. Picked up a 3DS XL yesterday to hold me over.. The 3D is better than I was expecting.

I'm pretty sure GS is sold out for both the deluxe and basic consoles. They are doing a wait list though with no deposit required.

They aren't sold out. Retailers do not know how many they will get, so they only took a very limited number of preorders.

I just came from Toys R Us, and saw the pre-order tickets there. Picked up 2, and went to the register.

Rang up as $999.99 each. Cashier calls manager and he says, "Its because they are all sold out on pre-orders. Just come the day of release we should have extra"

I had victory right in my hands...

And this is why Toys R Us is like shopping at a third world country.

Just got a cancellation notice from Target - email says there was a problem with your order. They are not open until 11AM CST for me to find out why. It was for the deluxe.

So if you haven't put down a preorder for a Deluxe what's your best bet of scoring one launch day? I preordered the Basic but want the Deluxe.

As already mentioned, you can get in line at one of the big stores for release day.

I wouldn't be surprised if the same stores keep just a handful of consoles for black friday as well. Considering how they are always looking for doorbusters to make them the place to go, I would expect a few Wii U to be held a week or so for Black Friday. So you may have 2 shots at sleeping out for a console.

I hadn't seen it mentioned here but regarding the Gamestop wait list:

"Those on the wait list cannot put money down on a console, may reserve no more than two Wii U systems, and must pay for the system in full within 48 hours of being notified of its availability. To top it off, all registrations for the wait list are done in-person at any GameStop location."

Yeah, so I paid off my deluxe WiiU and white Pro Controller (because I'm such a rebel) at Gamestop. Silly people not getting to stores on time. Have fun waiting around or waiting at Ebay.

Somehow I entirely missed the hoopla about the WiiU pre-orders starting (other than getting the email from Amazon) and I remain entirely blah about the whole situation. I think there's a lot of potential in the system and I wouldn't mind having a Deluxe safely on pre-order, but when I take a step back, there's not a lot at launch (or in the launch window) that I really care about.

I guess it makes me a bit of an addict when I still would jump on a pre-order if I came across one that was from a reputable place that didn't require any goofy bundles. (I don't know if I consider Toys R Us reputable ;) )

Had been out of town for a training class for my job, and missed out at pre-ordering at the gamestop that I regularly frequent. Went in to pickup TTT2 that I had pre-ordered and one of the workers that I have known now for a few years, lets me know that he had tried to get a hold of me when the Wii U pre-orders went live and could not get a hold of me, so he went ahead and put a deposit on a deluxe Wii U for me. Thanks go out to W. for the hook up and always holding things that he thinks I would be interested in.

Any retailers say for sure if there will be consoles provided for lineups at launch? Didn't pay attention to preorder talk so that seems to be my best option now.
