So I checked newegg.com about an hour ago and noticed that my bundle, which had already been charged and was in "packaging" status like everyone else's order, had been voided.
I called customer service just now and according to the rep, their entire Wii U stock was from a 3rd party warehouse, which apparently "provided inaccurate information to newegg". Delving a little deeper the CS stated that the 3rd party warehouses that newegg uses apparently just provide newegg with a # of units, but, you know, don't actually hold those units for newegg, so they assume the units were sold to another retailer before the warehouse got confirmation.
The end result is my order's been cancelled, despite the fact that I was charged near $600 with tax & shipping, and the kicker is they say the chargeback won't be effective for about 5 days. The newegg deal stopped me from camping for a few hours as well, and in my area from what i've been told supplies were enough so people were able to grab them on day 1 without issue. Hurrah....
Anyway, anyone who ordered may want to double check to see if they're screwed.
