after playing Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, and Super Mario 3D World (plus seeing the new DK) at PAX, this bundle is the perfect time for me to get a Wii U.

So it looks like you can preorder in-store at Bestbuy. Any word on Target? I'm going to try again after work today.

 

An update to in-store preorder at Target: looks like no go. They only had the preorder cards for just the game and not the bundle which makes me think it's going to be an online only preorder for Target. Oh well, guess I'll just have to wait for shipping.

as a bigger fan of 3D Land than the NSMB games, i thought it was great. the level i played had more enemy and platforming elements than 3D Land, and it looked awesome in HD.

yup just got back from Target and no in-store preorders. think i'm going to put money down at GS or BBY as a backup just in case i cant score one at Target with the 10% (in-store only) coupon i got from changing my address.

Glad I went to the store last week.  I would have never guessed that the game would have sold out so fast... I guess I just had a feeling that going early was important.

 

GL to the non-hoarders out there.  I'm sure there will be a small restock or two in the coming month,

Nice limited edition bundle -- well worth the purchase for one who can afford it and wants to try out the Wii U. Really digging the gamepad design too. However, I was so disenchanted with my launch Wii U that I sold it and never looked back. And also, judging by all the cool stuff this bundle comes with, it only makes me feel more ripped off at launch.

Yes it is. I'm so sad right now. I clearly asked the employee to pre order the limited edition and not the regular edition, I even told him it was the one that was priced $59.99.

no I don't think they can do that, if they could, then why wouldn't it work for anyone?

Stupid question, but wouldn't in store pickup work as a preorder? Your CC won't get charged until you pick it up

You can't override a street date exclusion. If the computer says no, you're boned.

The computer can be wrong but it needs to be adjusted on a higher level.

We don't need people in here posting that they pre-ordered more than one.

 

If you pre-ordered more than one, keep it to yourself.  All posting about that in here will do is to get people griping and complaining about it and that's something we don't need in here.

Both kids are campaigning for a WiiU for Christmas, so looks like I'll be trying to get one of the Zelda ones. I'd rather get them this one over the Basic or Vanilla Deluxe.

this Zelda bundle was the perfect incentive to invest in a Wii U. Having never played Wind Waker; the purchase just made sense. I only wish I could have picked up the system on the release date, instead of waiting for Best Buy to ship it. At least shipping was free and I get 6-months no interest with my BB card. Many reasons why I don't shop at Gamestop.

Im on the same boat as you but I'm not a big fan of the gamepad. Hopefully its a sticker and not actual paint.

Am I better off waiting until tomorrow to look for the special editions of people not picking up preorders or just go today?

Whoa... That sounded better in my head. Should i go scavenge gamestops for the game and figure or am shit out of luck if didn't preorder?

 

Call ahead and ask very clearly if they are still taking preorders for the limited edition.

Yeah, also keep in mind that this isn't out for another month so there's nothing to scavenge except preorders, if that.

Plus with PS3 remote play you can basically PLay your PS3 games on your PSP Go anywhere you are basically making it a Portable PS3


But Metroid sucks. I consider it Gunpei Yokoi's worst creation, even beating the Virtual Boy.


RE: XBox ONE

at least they change their name and not name their systems 1,2,3,4

Like I've said in earlier posts, when Nintendo says "limited editon" ANYTHING, they mean it. Most limited edition stuff from Nintendo doesn't last past pre orders. If you want it, don't hesitate and pre-order ASAP. Nintendo isn't known for restocking anything past first shipment of limited editions. The only example I know of that's the exception is Mario All-Stars Wii where they did a second reprint.

Can anyone speculate on how limited this bundle will be? Will this be more excessively produced like the New Super Mario Bros red Wii bundle and therefor be available for months to come or will it be comparable to 3DS limited edition releases and have more of a single-ish production? I know no legitimate details have been released on this but just wanted to hear other peoples perspectives.

I've got a feeling this is going to be very limited. The Ganondorf figure LE game is already sold out in my local GS, thankfully I reserved it on their website day one just in case. That LE Wii U with special gamepad design is gonna be a highly sought collector's item, unfortunately I already have a Wii U and I want the Ganon figure, and there's no way I'm buying a 2nd Wii U AND 2 copies of Windwaker lol. So I'll skip the special Wii U and just get the Windwaker w/Ganon and call it a day.
