How is it? Does it get in the way of the shoulder and trigger buttons at all?


It passed the dry hump test. Doesn't seem to impede any GamePad operations. Makes the unit feel a lot more solid in hand.

If my firmware download ever completes, I'll test a game. Perhaps by Wed! :-\"

These online stock checkers are garbage. Walmart and Target both list Deluxe sets in stock in my area. I went to check the stores and they were all sold out - basic sets included. 3 Walmart locations and two Target.

Best Buy and TRU, too.

most stores don't update online stock checkers till 8 a.m every day or when ever the store opens.

Yeah don't rely on those at all, they don't update frequently and if the store is holding units or other things then it will show they're in stock but you won't be able to buy them.

You could try an online stock tracker like nowinstock.net it is pretty quick and reliable with online stock anyways.

The 5gb update is a total buzz kill. I was excited that I got home in time to hook it up and play a little before I had to get to bed for work in the morning.... till this slow ass update.

i beat the game already and by the end of it i was happy it was over. First hour it was great then you started to do same thing over and over. I would give it 6/10 it's just a avg game and a zombie theme that at this point is overdone.

Must have game of the year: Rabids Land. A surprise hit and the reason I even considered buying a Wii U.

So can anyone confirm that you are able to go online with the original Wii games?

For example, Modern Warfare 3 for the Wii.

Good to wait for a price drop; I got on the newegg deal so I decided why not.

I went out at around 1pm today and everywhere was sold out except for my local Target, which is the busiest in the area. They had a cage out on the floor with about 5 deluxes and 8 standards. Just walked in and bought a deluxe, easy... well, after driving around to about 5 other stores.

haven't bought any games yet, going to read some reviews and watch some quick looks first.

I am surprised by the lack of midnight launches, Halo 4 and COD all had them, yet its soo quiet out there for a new Console release!!!


Nintendo doesn't do midnight launches on their big stuff, they like early Sunday morning launches at Gamestop. It's all about being at the front of those big box circulars in the Sunday paper.

I saw her at SDCC this year. I wanted to be rude and obnoxious while she did her interviews and walking the exhibit floor but just couldn't do it cause I would probably be banned for life from the show

Tried out DKC and it was excellent. It seems more vibrant to me and its probably because of the HDMI input. It's neat to use a mockup of the Wii menu and use a Wiimote too!!

Coming from a 23-year Nintendo fan this system is a 10/10!!!

How are people getting Walmart to price match the TRU BOGO 40% off deal on the controller, when it shows just games? I wonder if I can take my Mario & controller back and have them adjust it.

Picked mine up today at GS after work at 5. I also got Mario and the pro controller. I've been playing Nintendoland with friends all day. It wouldn't connect to my wifi, so I'll have to do the manual set up thing later. I just didn't feel like doing it and then waiting for the long update. I just wanted to play lol

Just walked through 24hr walmart about half an hour ago. Had 5 white systems and 3 black pro controllers in the glass case. I guess nobody wants the basic sets at all..
