for the target bundle, how are they going to deliver it on Sunday via express shipping, does anybody know?


Magic elves? Pretty sure they can't do this, probably will show up Monday or Tuesday.

Well, I was gonna sign up for a Target credit card to get the 5% off but it looks like they're all gone, lol.

Back to hoping KMart pulls through.

Saw that, too. I did the next cheapest shipping option, which is scheduled for Monday. Sometimes, shipping estimates of Sundays are just pushed to Mondays from my experience with other online retailers.

I just spoke to somebody at Kmart Customer Service about my horrible guest account Paypal order with no confirmation e-mail or order number that I made yesterday.

I was shocked when he was actually able to produce an order number with all the valid information, so it looks like the order went through. Whether or not I can pick it up on Sunday, that's another question.

I'm a little frustrated that checking the order online still isn't working, and I still haven't received a confirmation e-mail, even though the CS rep resent it at least once. I guess I just need to hold out until Sunday and see if I get that magical text message. If not, I'm not sure what I'll do.

Did they take the money out of your Paypal already? Does it say "pending" in your PP account?

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.

Yeah, that was the source of all my frustration. They took my money, but other than that, prior to talking to Customer Service, I had no indication that the order actually went through.

My Wii-U Deluxe pre-order moved into "Being prepared" status. The two games (rabbits land and NSMBU) are still at payment verified. I was planning on going down Sunday and picking up some more games. I will be able to use my 3x points card. :) I still won't plan on seeing the shipment till Monday or Tuesday.

This guy obviously has no idea what people are willing to pay to get a console a day early.

Yeah, shit really gets me. Like, give me my money back now if you can't fulfill the order so I can get it somewhere else. Chodes.

For all the craziness, I think 80% of the consoles are on the hand of flippers. I expect the market will be flooded by returns after 30 days...lol

I was on the phone with my mom who works at Target and was inputting her employee number and when I hit continue it was OOS. Kinda fucked up that it would take it away from me while I was checking out.

i HATE flippers it pees me off. Flippers take away systems from people that really want the syste and not looking to make a quick buck. But thanks to idiots willing ot pay 500 bucks for a 350 doller system flippers will always happen.

Yes, I snagged the bundle from Target, seems like a more legit deal and I wanted the NSMBU too. I'd rather wait a few days on the shipping than wait in line for hours tomorrow night. The Kmart thing seemed like a 30% chance at best, the store I had mine from said they hadn't even received systems yet and that if they did it would be 2-4 at most, if they have 2 or less then they don't even allow online ordering apparently.

And btw anything popular will have flippers, eventually the market evens out. I collect screen-printed posters from Mondo and other places and they sell for 200-300% mark-up a lot of the time, ridiculous, but people pay it.

If anyone has a Fry's nearby, they posted their ad this morning with details. They are only selling the Wii-U as a $450 bundle. Comes with Mario, a pro controller and the mic. This may be a good option as the bundle price might keep it on shelves a little longer.

Haha the ad also shows the white one as the same price. They better fix that by Sunday!

If someone is going to pay 500+ for it, I assume they really want the system.

I got the TRU "delayed" email, and I called over to the local store. They're still expecting to have them in stock on Sunday, so we'll see.

I keep thinking I'm going to want to keep my pre-order, but then realizing that as of right now there just aren't any games I'd play or pay for price for. This is frustrating trying to decide what to do.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.
