sunday morning. walmart never opens stores that are not 24/7 for releases

I have been assured by a few different employees that our Walmart will for sure be opening at midnight for the Wii U. I guess I'll have to actually get ahold of the manager to be completely certain.


Has there been any confirmation that the U Draw or the Wii music peripherals will be compatible with the Wii U? I don't see why not, but it seems like weird shit happens with stuff like that sometimes.

I can't imagine why they wouldn't, especially the U Draw tablet. But I guess we'll know for sure this weekend.


Sorry, I should have been clear, the TRU circular has Wii U consoles advertised as available very clearly displayed on page one, with no indication of limited quantities outside of the standard disclaimer they print in every ad.

So? Last time they advertised a deal I really wanted, I ran over to TRU and they told me that the item hadn't been in stock for months. These ads aren't region-specific, nor are they indicative of any amount of stock.


Somewhat pointless to get the console early since the good games arent out till sunday and you can't even apply the update till sunday.

Plenty of good games have come out. I already picked mine up.


Same time Amazon did.

Har har, I almost didn't get it.

Most Target stores will have 6-8 of the Deluxe consoles .. At least in the OKC area. Super Targets *should* receive more, but it's not guaranteed. I have two in my area. One is slated to get 14 deluxe consoles, the other is getting only 2. Weird.

So if your Target sold out of preorder cards (which most of my local stores only got 5 cards per bundle type), 1-2 of you may have a shot at getting one.

I'm working Sunday morning, so I'm having a friend of mine pick mine up for me since I'm not 100% confident in the Target store I preordered with being competent enough to put the preordered ones aside.

Do you have any idea what you're talking about?


Yes. I'll dumb it down for you. GameStop(small, niche) therefore small allocations. Talked to the manager at Polaris mall today(big mall) getting 9 and 8(8gbs) all pre paid.
That does not mean the system will be hard to get at launch. It may be. But that's not a good sample. Now Walmart gets 9 of each? That's a shortage(they're getting closer to 50+)
I want there to be a shortage because I'm getting two. Nobody will know till Tuesday-Wednesday next week what will happen.

Someone is taking a break until a few days after the Wii U is released so this preorder thread stops getting derailed.

BestBuy.com switched my Deluxe to Preparing for Shipment. Guess it'll probably go out tomorrow with next day being Monday.

Sorry to hear about the ones getting delayed. I ordered within 20 minutes of Best Buy going live back on Sept 13th, if that matters.

They may be niche but they are certainly not small. This Jedi guy is really starting to bug me.

With just 36 hours to go, there's not a whole lot of WiiUes left to preorder.

My problem was this hoarder took all of them including my one copy as I helped her.

The BestBuy I work at is getting 22 Wii U consoles total. 16 Deluxe and 6 Basic models. We only had about 5-6 pre-orders though since they cut them off pretty quickly. And only 2 of those pre-orders were from employees.

Do you happen to know anything about preorders that were done online for instore pickup? I'm guessing those are coming in another shipment that is separate from the instore inventory?

Don't know if this helps anyone but I just got off the phone with my Walmart manager. He informed me that all the layaway Wii Us have been placed aside for preorders and the allotment which wasn't preordered will be placed on the floor for selling. No midnight opening for layaway though. Pickup is Sunday from 9 to 9. His was in Ft Lauderdale, FL.

Was anyone else dumb awesome enough to order from TrU online? If so have you heard anything? Wondering if I'm going to actually get one or not. No pending charges or anything and it still allows me to cancel my order.

Another one for the stack. Very happy BB is actually shipping my system after the debacle with my in-store pickup order. (fraud alert on card triggered, BB gave me ONE HOUR on a Saturday morning to resolve it, needless to say, it all happened before I even woke up)

has anyone had any updates on those kmart orders from yesterday? mine still says processing.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.
