I got an in-store order at my store after it was sold out on line. Granted it was like 3 days after they stopped taking on line orders.

I have a preorder with GS but I really doubt most GS stores stopped taking PO's based on what they think theyll get. Granted they may get more or less and that depends upon Nintendo. My only hope is that I dont have to line up and it be first come first serve type of deal...but Im afraid thats whatll happen. Id like to show up at midnight and pick up my WiiU. I also have a WiiU PO'd at BB so Ill have to figure out where to go first. Im just basing my thoughts on other posters experiences with GS console launches. Only console I ever got at launch was the N64 and that went fine. I just had to line up.


GS was the retailer that acted most responsible on taking preorders IMO, guy told me they stopped the preorders at that store the 2nd day, meanwhile Bestbuy was allowing people to preorder for a good week for $5, one member on here said a guy ahead of him at store put in SEVEN preorders.

I feel safe with GS, rather than any other retailer on launch like bestbuy who took a ton of preorders blindly , not even limiting 1 preorder per person

Yep 7, I'm kind of worried now if I'll get one from that store now.. I asked the sales rep if there was a limit and he said, " Yes but you could pretty much order as many as you wanted" it's at the discretion of the guy ringing you up. I was there early too. Someone was on a mission to preorder a ton, probably hit up all the local stores in my area.

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.

Have a Deluxe model on PO at GS B&M. Called twice to see if I would be guaranteed the system at launch. Both times I was assured I would get it on launch date. Worse comes ro worse, I'll get it on their next shipment.

Most aren't, at least the ones in L.A./Orange County. I suggest calling around to see.

So is ZombiU really coming out on the 11/13? That is what Amazon has for the release date. Seems weird to release it before the console.

Not really. I remember for the Wii launch few of its games came out before the console actually came out. They were all 3rd party games. I don't know if stores always put them on the shelves before the console came out, but I know for certain the Walmart in my area did.

Oh okay. I imagine it has something to do with nintendo releasing things on Sundays and most games get released on Tuesdays.

I'm kind of hoping a few 3rd party titles do this (ZombiU and Scribblenauts for sure!). I'd like to get my NewEgg orders before the release so I have something other than NintendoLand to play day 1.

If I cannot find an in store preorder, will I be able to wait at Walmart until midnight when it releases? I'm assuming if that is possible, there will be loads of people doing that.

You can order the online TRU bundle, if you don't mind paying $420 (basic system plus 2 games).

Yeah, that's the problem. I don't want to pay that much right now.

I'm wondering if you can return the 2 games back to TRU for a refund. I know it's a bundle but

You will be able to get them at Wal-Mart at launch, probably not at midnight though unless it's a 24 hour store. I'm still not convinced these will be hard to get on launch day.

Awesome! Looks like I'll be spending that Saturday at Walmart. You wouldn't think Nintendo would make the mistake of repeating what happened with the Wii, but I'm not going to put complete faith in them.

It's probably on Sunday to allow parents to get in sleep before starting the work week. That's my theory.
