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


nintendo releases are typically on sundays

Any news on whether or not the Deluxe editions will be available for pre-order again?

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.


It happens to Saturn release.

This happens all the time for new consoles. It's been awhile since a console has been released, so we've all forgotten about it. :)

I found out I'm #8 in line for the Deluxe Set pre-orders at my local Gamestop so I'm hoping I won't have any trouble securing my Wii U at launch.
I'd imagine they'll get at least 10 of each console in-store but I've got a backup pre-order on Gamestop.com with 1-day shipping so it wouldn't be the end of the world if I had to wait a few extra days.

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.

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.


Yeah I also went to gamestop and asked if I was guaranteed a console at launch at if I preordered one, and they said if you preordered one you are guranteed one at launch. Crossing my fingers that everything goes OK.

I would think about preordering if it was 250 for the deluxe set. But since i don't have anyone here that would play mario with me i wouldn't even consider buying the system.

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


In that situation, you will probably be offered store credit.

This worries me too. I have my deluxe pre-ordered at BB and when I asked the guy about it, he said I was guaranteed a console at launch and also that the day I was there they "just started" taking pre-orders. I'll be off from work at launch so I'm still debating if I should camp out a bit... lol

I plan on going early the morning of and scoping it out. My BB isn't a huge one though, so I imagine I should be okay. More popular locations may be fucked though.

If all of the GS rumors are true (that a preorder is as good as gold), then I'm not too worried. I'd prefer a BB console (because it'll be cheaper for me thanks to $150 in RZ Certs), I just want one. I'm not picky.

This is the first time since the PS2 that I'm not getting a console on launch day and it's painful. I just flat out can't afford it this year. I paid off my ridiculous credit card debt and I've vowed not to use them again. I'll pick one up on the first re-stocking after Christmas though. There will be so many good games to play on other systems though that it shouldn't be too bad. I'll still be jealous of all of the rest of you though. :-P

My gamestop told me they were only getting 6 preorders and I was the first person to preorder mine. Its a kind of small gamestop in the mall so maybe they get less.

There was a cut-off time that you are guaranteed one. Remember reading an email about it.

For Gamestop?

I got my pre-order in like 1 or 2pm on the day they announced it. So I'm hoping I'm either one of the first few, or that I'm in that time frame.

Count me in with you. Did mine at 12:43PM, 9/13/12 according to my receipt. That GS is a bit popular, but I have to be good for at least top 10 status.

Yeah, I know my store got a lot of calls about pre-ordering the Wii-U, but I seriously doubt that many could have came in the 2-3 hours after announcements (Especially since it was a school/work day)

Yes, it was an internal (employee) email.

You both should be fine.

Does the GameStop preorder recipts have a number on top to see what number you are. I remember when I preorder my xbox360, I had a number on top. Cause the best buy recipts don't have one. So it would not matter if you preorder first or last, whoever is their first from the preorders gets the first one.

Not on the receipt, but employees can look it up.

Thanks for the reassurance! I imagined I would be. I know others have been burned with GS and preorders, but I never have, so I'm hoping that streak continues.

Wow, even WM is sold out now.

Looks like this'll be like the Wii all over again. I should have ordered one.
