That bundle with mario, zombie U, and black ops I would purchase if I didnt have it paid off at gamestop with trade ins. Those are the three games I plan on getting.

I'm in for 1 (black 32gb). I have 1 pre-ordered from BB and will get it if I think I can flip it. Or...I'll just refund my $$$ and make someone happy at BB that day.

This... is tempting. If not for Black Ops 2, I would've maybe already bit (have it for the 360 already).

What else is coming out this year for the Wii U?

while I agree with the people that are saying it's expensive, it's at least a good bundle. Mario was a day 1 for me and I suppose I wouldn't mind playing Zombi U. Sure I am missing out on a good deal for black friday, but at least this bundle isn't that insane.

350 + 60 + 60 + 60 = 530 + 14 (or more) for shipping = 544
VS
350 + 60 + 60 = 470 x .06 = just under 500

so I am paying 44 for to avoid lines, people, drama, black friday BS and more by going this route, which is worth it for me.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

I'd consider this if it came with a pro controller over BLOPS2.

A normal Wii U with NSMB U is going for $590 on ebay right now. I figure I can order it, and even if I don't want it I can probably make a profit, if this insanity holds for at least a little.

Edit: Aaaaaaannnnnnnd I just got cold feet and cancelled my order. I'm hoping if I can find a second wii U to sell it could cut down the cost of the one I am planning to keep and play, but I've never done anything like this before and I'm afraid it will blow up in my face and I'll loose money. Since I don't need the three games I might just see if I can get a normal unit on Amazon tomorrow night. Or just bag it and buy my unit straight out. I can afford it, I just don't want to pay for it.

its all about supply and demand. last yr, demand for 3ds was pretty high and locating a 3ds was hard already. having it's the new hot stuff that most ppl want it for christmas, it's easy money.

ordered one with no hesitation.

Wait what? I didn't know 3DS was high in demand. All of my stores have always been fully stocked with them, even at launch.

RIP OFF!! Get on the wait list at Gamestop instead and get it for a legitimate price!

These jerks at NewEgg probably got the same early stock at Gamestop did, yet chose to hold off until now and try to rip people off in hopes of launch day craze.

LAME AND DECEITFUL NewEgg! Shame on you!

People aren't going to want to buy a $500 game console from a brand new seller on Ebay with no feedback. I have to pay $385 including tax for a Deluxe Wii U at Walmart. Ebay fees can be as high as 15% which is $75. You need to send a big heavy box via UPS with signature confirmation. You are looking at very little profit if everything goes right. If something goes horribly wrong then:

well, i was talking about last yr. at least stores near me (NYC) it was very hard to find a new 3ds system as christmas gotten closer.


and trust me, wii u will be short on supply and do get it whenever you get the chance to play for yourself or to ebay it for some money.

I pulled the trigger a few hours ago. Im shocked they still have stock left. I understand its an expensive bundle to some but I remember the expensive ass wii walmart bundles selling out in seconds that had cruddy games attached to them. Its not like Mario zombi u and cod bo2 are bad games or anything.

Its worth it to me to avoid all the bs running around trying to find one.

Oh calm down it's retail pricing. I'm glad they posted I just completed check out on the Deluxe. I might sell off the two games I don't want but hell yeah I'm excited. I let it go 3 day shipping though.

edit: wonder if it will ship tomorrow or Monday?

Actually, this is one of the few bundles that contains, arguably, the games that are most likely to be popular. It isn't at a discount, but for someone that wants those games its an ok deal. Sure, there is shipping, but that is less than many would pay in tax.

Not saying its a great deal ... but a better deal for many than the bundles that have Barbi's Dream House and How to Train my Dead Horse.

Don't forget to use ebates for click through. It's only 1.5% but that will cover most of the shipping pain.

Not sure if I want to try my luck trying to find the Wii-U in the wild or order this. Mario game I'm ok with (seriously, it's nearly impossible to own a Nintendo console without having Mario). Zombie-U does look interesting, but it seems like the type of game that'll get stale right away. I don't even know what Nintendo Land is.

How likely is it to find Wii-U this coming Sunday at Costco?

I haven't seen anything video game related being sold at my local costco in awhile. There used to be games and consoles but that is all gone now.

Yea me too, but a couple of days ago I saw they were selling BLOPS 2 front and center (it was those cardboard slips you bring to the front to get the item). However, at the same time I don't think I ever saw them selling any other consoles as of late. I'm always preoccupied in shopping for groceries there so I haven't really looked at their gaming section; whenever I shop at Costco it feels like I'm getting ready for a Zombie Apocalypse. This rang the most truth when I was shopping there for groceries and helping my friend find a coffin there (lol, I don't think they sell those anymore).

I'm in for the Delexe, NSMBU and ZombiU are 2 of the games that I wanted for the system. Not really a fan of CoD games so I may just trade that one in.

Mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas this year, told her if I could find one, probably a Wii U. She said if I find one, go ahead and buy it and she'll pay me for it....seeing as I get "Santa" until I get married and I'm engaged, I figure I might as well get this bundle.

I have awesome parents.

Not hardly..I make enough to buy my own games, but seeing as this is the first time my parents have bought me a system for Christmas since the 360 originally came out (bought my Wii, PS3, PC, etc.) I'm excited.
