Yesterday out of boredom I checked if my Walmart or Target had the units out early, Walmart didn't and Target didn't. I talked to a person at the electronics department and played "stupid customer" saying that I heard the system was out and asked if they had any in the back but he told me they wont be out till "another day" and that they can't do any preorders or holds for it. He also said that I should go to Gamestop and buy it there instead, really strange.
Pre-ordered at Target yesterday after reading about how they would adjust their price to match the circular ad and got an e-mail saying my shipment was delayed until April 21st at the latest. I'll be out and about today and maybe tomorrow so I think I'll try my luck in the wild.
I ordered mine just an hour or two after someone posted it being up for Preorder at Target.com (very early in the week) and I got an email just now saying that it is delayed until April 5-23 what this might mean is that they are trying to get more stock but may be denied by Nintendo due to the limited nature. I planned on going in the store anyways as a backup but I am not hopeful of the Target order ever shipping, I hope to grab one of these tomorrow morning and than I will cancel my Target.com order.
I want anyone else who preordered on the website to be warned that it may not come through after all.
