:-# So I guess the only people who made a big flippin' profit were the ones who sold receipts for $600 back when pre-orders opened.

i remember reading the wii u thread, before the wii-u was released. all these ppl bragging about how much preorders they made at different retailers, and all the profit they were going to make, because the supply will be low, ROflmao, such much for that. While i was doing so trading in games today at gamesto, i saw atleast 3 wii-u basic, and deluxe at the front counter

I have seen both models on shelves here in Michigan for a while now.

Saw the deluxe on the shelf at Target today.

I have been wanting to look and see what stupid prices people are paying on ebay seeing as they are not rare nor even scarce.

After Christmas, you will see stacks of them mountain high at every stores after all the resellers returned all their units. But I could be wrong, we still have about 3 weeks until the holiday.

Yeah you can say that...hopefully I can sell the ones I have at cost to friends who are looking for one. If not, I'll just return them...

I highly recommend this console. It really is a great new system. Mario and ZombiU are a blast.

Anyone acting like this thing be readily available was a guarantee are kidding themselves and obviously either are ignoring or aren't familiar with previous console launches... Nintendo did a poor job with this launch imo, similar to 3DS.

people who knew what they were doing made their money, and there is still money to be made, just gotta work a little more for it. I do hope the idiots who didn't know what they were doing will have to sell them for a loss, or at least return them so someone can get a fair shake at getting one.

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.

I don't think thats going to be a problem. The best thing now if you don't have one yet, is to try and snag one below cost on Ebay... AHHAHHAHAHA:hot:
