So It's a known system glitch? Wow that kind bothers me more now that I know thats was what prevented me to pre-order it day one or before they sold out.

Has there been any confirmation of whether it will be a code or pre installed on the console? Or is this gonna be a wait until 9/20 to find out.

I believe its a code, but I could be wrong.  It would be nice if it was pre installed though.

 

edit: according to walmart.com it is in fact a download code.

Umm... Did they change SKUS? My Wind Waker LE is 240234. It was confirmed earlier in the thread also.

I do have the same SKU for the Wii U Deluxe Zelda Bundle

I have 240234 as well, my PowerUp Rewards page does show the preorder for the Wind Waker GS Exclusive.

Exactly when did the pre-orders for the game LE sold out online? I tried doing it either the day of or after and it wasn't letting me go through saying my information wasn't accepted. Was that just a glitch? or did they sell out?


This bullshit happened to me, too.

what do their numbers or a negative review matter if they're closing

 

It'll show as a negative review on the employee who most likely still has their job and is just getting transferred to a different store.

I'm a huge Zelda fan and I get the sense that this edition of the console will be in limited supply but I don't see how I can justify $300 on a WiiU at this point when there's just not that many games for it. The fact that the pack-in game and book aren't physical copies is a big turnoff also, if it were $300 for the print version of the book and a game disc then I'd probably pull the trigger. But having a Zelda graphic on the gamepad isn't enough on its own to make me want to grab one of these, and I already played Wind Waker on GC so I'm not nearly as interested as I would be in a totally new Zelda game.

 

I think I'm still taking a wait and see approach with this console, it's more likely at this point that I'll give it another year to see what kind of direction the system goes in and what exclusives it gets and then try to catch a good deal during Black Friday/Holiday Season 2014. I've got such a backlog/wishlist for PS3, 3DS, Vita and PC already that it's really hard to justify dropping another $300 on a new platform at this point.

I'd wait until there were more games or a Black Friday bundle to justify the $300 for the Wii U.  You just know there'll be some exciting ways Nintendo is going to encourage Wii U purchases during Black Friday.  I turn your attention to the way Nintendo pushed the 3DS after its failed launch.  They bundled it, often with 1-2 of 3 exciting games of the time (ie., Zelda remake (GS exclusive, deja vu?) that had released earlier but now for cheaper, or Mario Kart, a genuine Mario) and often for cheaper than at any other point.

 

They did this to build up a narrative that the 3DS was finally picking up steam in sales.  For the most part, it worked, too.  I expect them to repeat that.  I suspect that's why they've set the 2DS at $130, so they can drop to $99.  I happen to believe the Wii U is set up to go from $299 to $249 because they know that $249 is a magic price point that reminds people of the old Wii launch and you'd have a somewhat value-packed deal at $250 if you bundled 1-2 of the following titles:  Nintendoland, NSMBU?NSLB,  Pikmin 3, Zelda Remake (GS).  Especially when you step back and consider such a deal on BF versus the PS4 at $399 or the Xbone at $499.

 

So if it were me, I'd wait for Black Friday to get the better deal because Nintendo is going to be aggressively courting retailers to feature the Wii U as the deal to get in video games.   This is a strategy they perfected with the 3DS and there's no reason they won't do it again, especially when they're following the Zelda remake part of the 3DS strategy perfectly.

I had a Wii at one point, but never found it that compelling. I'm glad I can pick up some sweet Wii games to play alongside brand new Wii U games.

Yeah, I was just pointing out how bizarre things can go at GS. Its kinda like BB in my experiences, you have awesome stores and people and then others that...well...

I have a huge backlog and no interest in getting a new system right now, but I really really like that controller and doubt I'll be able to get it later down the road.

Interesting that the controller has a special design but the console itself doesn't. Too bad they aren't making it available separately.. with $299 being the new MSRP for a Wii U Deluxe I'd consider picking up a Zelda gamepad now and then waiting for a BF deal on the console itself.

Yeah the console not having a design on it is the only thing refraining me from buying this. That and that I wouldn't play the Wii U at all.

I will need to stop in GameStop after work today and get my reserve switched to the Ganondorf version. Hopefully it is in the system by then.

Might have to pre order online, local stores sold out the day after this was announced. Seriously. I went to my local Gamestop a few days after announcement to switch my pre order from their website to in-store, just to help out the local employee there get a pre order, and he said keep your pre order online, cause we're sold out already.

Wouldn't make sense to offer just the controller. Kind of like how they are not offering extra gamepads at all right now. They don't want people confused about the amount of gamepads per console. I could see it now.

 You don't like Nintendo games? I guess to each their own. Personally though, I play my Wii U so much all my other systems collect dust. I pre ordered a PS4 and Xbox One also, but there are so many must-have Wii U games I'm afraid they might start collecting dust before I ever unwrap them lol (jk, of course I'll be playing the new consoles also).

 

I liked NSMBU alot, but Pikmin 3 is when the Wii U really came into its own I think. And with New Super Luigi U, Wonderful 101, Rayman Legends, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Zelda Windwaker, Sonic Lost World, Batman Arkham Origins, Assassin's Creed 4, Watch Dogs, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Mario 3D World, Call of Duty Ghosts and Deus Ex Human Revolution all coming out in a 3 month window, I couldn't be more thrilled about owning a Wii U! I definitely feel like Nintendo has upped their game from last gen. The quality and depth of the games are certainly much improved. I honestly feel the Wii U is Nintendo's best console they've ever made- it's so much funner than I expected it to be.

I guess my post was deleted, but yeah, there are basically 15 exclusives out before this Christmas, with Bayonetta 2, SSB, Mario Kart 8, and Project X just over the horizon.  I feel like every generation is best suited with a Nintendo console and at least one other platform.

hmm it's ultimately the special decal on the WiiU Gamepad that's tempting me.
but hmm I guess it's not worth $300 (I thought it was $200 -lol!-)

already have the physical Hyrule Historia..
hmm oh well. guess I'll just get the WindWaker game separately

There are always some a few cancelled orders that will show up online, but they are going to sell out instantly as resellers are going to be camping the site to snatch up any that come available. On October 4th, se the instore availability option to see what local stores have any unclaimed and either do an instore pickup or call and tell them to hold it for you.

Well, I may regret this later, but I bit on this offer.

Between the rerelease of Wind Waker with reduced sailing times, a few games coming out that I'm interested in, Rayman Legends, and the ability to play games on the gamepad screen while I'm watching over my soon to be born daughter, I just couldn't resist.

The Zelda stencil job on the controller is a nice bonus on top.

Decided to order from Newegg.  Hoping that they will come through with the preorder this time.

you are going to end up regretting it, and be disappointed by ordering from newegg of all places.
