GameStop will end Wii U Deluxe set pre-orders one day after they started.
Wow, I wonder if its true. The Deluxe edition, its clearly the better value of the two bundles.
No doubts about it, this thing will fly off the shelves...
They aren't even gonna touch the shelves for a while. All Wii U's allotted to the stores will already be sold before the stock gets in. I'm just glad I got mine 5 minutes after they were made available in the GameStop computer system, so I'm assured a Wii U on day one.
According to my buddy's district (suburban MI), they've barely sold any themselves but it's a total conglomerate quantity, which is weird considering each store is usually allotted a certain quantity each. I wonder if this is related to Amazon's lack of Wii U systems?
im in the Metro Detroit area of MI, i was at a gamestop last night they had 3 pre-orders all day, on the other hand there is a gamestop on every corner in that area. so i wonder how many systems ea. of those stores will actually get
Nintendo and Apple both pull the same old trick. Provide limited quantities to create the illusion of extreme demand, thus creating some real demand.
It is nice to see the Nintendo Elite supporters collaborating worldwide taking care of Nintendo just as they have taken care of us for decades. I am not surprised that this unique and powerful next generation home gaming platform is selling out at such a rapid rate. I also can't wait to get my hands on my very own Nintendo Wii U entertainment system to take part in this grand experience. Looking forward to Nintendo exclusive Bayonetta 2 as well. Pre order now to secure your very own Nintendo Wii U entertainment system Deluxe Edition before time runs out. Rated E For Everyone
you sound like a tard why dont u suck nintendo off
I hope that you also have a wonderful fulfilling experience with your future Nintendo Wii U entertainment system.
I like nintendo too but you guys sound like friggin hippies it's a video game system not ecstasy
Wouldn't believe this product was selling hot unless I had figures. If they had figures that proved it being so, well... then I would be highly disappointed in man kind.
i was a bit counfused by your "i would be highly disappointed in man kind" comment i thought.. well if your disappinted in mankind...doesnt that mean you are dissapointed in yourself..? BUT THEN i realized oh no wait he is not a human IT is a TROLL a tiny brain'd, snot filled, rancid troll
Dude that's funny... lol
this always happen. Even the PS3 was sold out when it came out at $600 for the 2 or 3 months.
Depended on where you were at. Where I was in 2006 (southeastern Pennsylvania) the PS3 was available in December at Toys R Us but it did have a bit of a shortage at launch. You also have to keep in mind that many people buying it are looking to sell it for more on eBay so that can cause delay as well.
I've never understood why people would pay more for it on ebay, if said console had sold out just wait a few weeks sometimes months and they would have more of them?? it's bad enough paying normal prices let alone double on ebay, i could understand a little bit if it sold out and never came back in stock but most of these new consoles get stocked for quite a while (like years).
@stuntman I see exactly where ur coming from And I wouldn't be the one to buy systems for $200-300 more than it normally is. However I do understand why others buy them off eBay. For 1, they could be desperate to get that Christmas gift under the tree for their kids or 2, they absolutely must play it for themselves and waiting is overrated to them LOL smh
they said the same about 3DS before release, we all know that was not true.
I wonder if that will be the case in Europe. Glad I preordered mine.
I am going to Gamestop in about an hour. I will ask about the preorders and give an update when I get back. I hope this isn't true though my friends haven't got a chance to go preorder yet.
It's true I was just at GameStop mine was one of a few left in oregon that was still taking pre orders they said corporate let them know a couple days ago that pre orders would be very very limited.
I can confirm it now. They told me that preorders will run all day today unless they run out. Luckily I was able to make another preorder for my friend. My others friends who were able to get to Gamestop in time preordered too. So now I know at least 10 people who will have a WiiU
Well its not Gamestop, but my local Play N Trade already ran out of pre-orders. Not sure exactly how many consoles they are getting, but the hype is there and its nice to see people actually excited about new hardware.
If it's true I guess it's a win for the nin.. But I do wonder who are the ones mostly buying? The people who are glad wiiU is going more hardcore or the previous wii fans? Whatever if it's a success MS will follow day 1.
Got mine, for Bay 2 and Zombi u, got the EU zombi u back pre ordered. Anyone who can't get a Wii U can borrow mine till Bay 2 comes out lol.
Yep 100% true! It actually made me jump up and pre-order it because I have a felling its going to be sold out for a very long time... BTW, it's only the Deluxe edition that's getting capped nationwide, already way too many pre-orders...
I also pre-ordered the special edition Wii U bundle.
Just came back fro pre-ordering my 2nd! I'm not taking any chances on underestimating Nintendo, who knows if this is going to be a hit or not. Judging from what they told me at GameStop, the Wii U is selling out quick and it might take months before we're able to find one on shelves; of course I'm speaking about the Deluxe edition mainly, which in my eye's is the only one worth getting...
it definitely is.. The color alone is worth the $50.. Take that ninny land & return it to walmart for credit lol.. Maybe u can get Mario Bros or Pikmin instead
My GameStop in Palm Springs, California said the same thing. Glad I got my pre-order in.
This system is releasing November, of course it will sell out quick as lightning.
This rumor is true. I am from North Carolina and I'm on a business trip to Pittsburgh. I was planning on pre ordering a wii u when I got back to NC. However, I read this rumomr so I went to the nearest Game Stop here in Pittsburgh and asked them about it. They confirmed that they were completely sold out of Black Wii U's and so was every other Gamestop in the area. He said if you want a Wii U by Xmas you are going to have to get the white one. He said if I wanted the deluxe black one then I need to search online because this thing is selling out very quickly. So I went back to my hotel and went to bestbuy.com and pre ordered one. If ya'll want the black one I suggest you do the same. Otherwise you won't be able to for a while.
I went to Gamestop today & they Black Deluxe is sold out across the nation.. White is still available.. Best Buy still takes pre orders on em
I told you it was going to happen, and you were all like, "Pipe dreams, ain't nobody buying that crap"! Yea right! I bet you reserved it at Best Buy and pick it up day 1!
