I don't know how it is with Kmart but with BB, mine was set to shipout in December. I called in, complained /explained about my situation in a civilized way and shipped it out yesterday at the end. try it?

long story short; they dont' know why it was backordered and they confirmed i ordered it when preorder was up so they shipped it.

I'm going to stop by Wal-Mart tomorrow afternoon to see if they'll let me have mine early. If not, then I'll just go by Sunday afternoon. I also have ZombiiU, NSMB, and a pro controller at Gamestop for pick-up. Should be a busy day!

has nintendo ever gave a reason why they release their stuff on sunday? i could understand why they would do it in japan seeing sunday is really the only day people their have off of work and it's like a holiday every week, but not sure why it's the same day in u.s.


Maybe because the week in the US starts Sunday? So Nintendo is releasing games and consoles at the beginning of the US week? Not sure of course just a guess :/

Nice to know many people already have their Wii U already! Walmart did this with the 3DS price drop and many people were able to buy a 3DS for $80 off and still were able to download the embassador games - funny stuff x3

and I was impressed reading about Fry's like seriously? Even the first guys who pre-ordered got their pre-orders cancelled... lame :/

Well just wanted as well post that PLEASE stop the discussions about GTA, Manhunt, RAM, and other stuff that are not related with the Wii U pre-orders! It's so annoying @_@!

i was talking about grapics cards you can't tell the diff of lets say a grapchis card that has 1 gb dedicated memory to 2 gb dedicated memory they don't make a game better looking or what not. im in college for computer engeneer i know what im talking about lol


Battlefield 3 and Crysis 2 are two games (off the top of my head) that benefit greatly from having more Vram.

If any new Wii U owners are looking to pick up extra Wiimotes for multiplayer, Toys R Us has Flingsmash w/motion plus remote for $19.98 (the 20% off shows after you add it to your cart). Shipping sucks, but if you have a store nearby with it in stock, you're saving $20 off the remote alone.

No problem... and good luck. haha... This controller looks like it could be a good alternative for Wii and Wii U games that don't support the pro controller or classic controller.

So Target cancels my day one pre-order but is fulfilling bundles ordered a couple of days ago?

I had a back up, but that's infuriating either way.

My BestBuy.com in-store pickup order is still in the "Payment Validated" phase; but the Order Status just changed from "1 item(s) preordered, release date is 11/18/12." to "1 item(s) - confirming InStore Inventory at KALAMAZOO MI 413." if that means anything...

Sucks. I would have liked to have grabbed one for $20. The TRU next to the BB I'm picking up my Wii U actually has some in stock as well.

update on target orders from yesterday.

UPS tracker now lists delivery as end of day monday.
Package weighs 5.1 lbs.
Guess this is the system.

Dang. When the link was first posted and I added it to my cart, it was $20 and it said "Online Only! Take an EXTRA 20% OFF these Clearance items!". Now it's back to $24.99 and saying "Buy 1 Get 1 40% OFF ALL 3DS, DS, Wii & Wii U Video Games priced 49.99 and below!".

My target deluxe system-only order from 9/15 has shipped.

Looks like basic systems are about 5 pounds, and deluxe systems are about 10 pounds. Bit surprising.

No idea what target did.
Seemed a bit light, but games are usually 10-16 ounces.

My BB in-store pickup changed from "pre-order" to "confirming inventory." Hopefully that means we are good to go for tomorrow morning!

I know target had problems with orders, but to screw up packaging would take a special kind of stupid from their workers at the warehouse.
