Just got my Wii U preordered at Gamestop. Got the deluxe version.
For those curious about a Black Friday deal, I am just speculating, but I'd say its probably not going to happen. Based on every console launch I've seen in the past (okay maybe not Vita), supplies are SUPER limited first week. My guess is that pre-orders will sell out within the week at pretty much all retailers. Remember, this release Sunday is the weekend before Black Friday. For there to be a doorbuster deal on Black Friday, that would mean that not only did pre-orders not sell out, but there were enough Wii U's left on the shelf 5 or 6 days later that they can offer a big deal. My guess (remember.. guess) is that there will be no Black Friday Wii U deals, in fact, the best deal of all would be actually FINDING a Wii U come that Friday.
Games are another story. It's certainly possible to see some game deals posted at BB or GS, but even there, I am doubtful. It's just going to be too much in demand to warrant a deal. It's like an iPad, those things all sell out like within 5 minutes of release, you never see an iPad sale until like 2 years after it comes out.
