You kidding me you bastards! I want the deluxe version. Man you all are quick the draw.

Funny I casually got mine at GameStop yesterday, no waiting outside or anything crazy and the sales rep said I was the only person at the time that had even pre-ordered it.

Now I just have to actually get excited about it. Tough to when ZombiU n Pikmin are really the only games I'm caring about as far as launch titles go.

chrisgay1385d ago

Is Pikmin actually a launch title? I heard it slipped in 2013. Seriously bad news if true.

@Chrisgay

Oh crap you're right. That sucks...

MmaFan-Qc1385d ago

i will wait at least 5-6 months after the console release to get it.

after the wii release borefest, nintendo wont fool me again.

TheRealSpy1385d ago

Nintendo learned from their experience with Wii that if you artificially create demand by massively limiting supply, the sheeple will think that makes the system good and will flock to it.

something tells me it won't work out the same way this time though. the early adopters will get it, there will be a few launch titles, then...crickets.

if by "do it again" you mean trick stupid people into thinking the system is in high demand by only making a couple hundred thousand units available, then yes, you are right.

DeadlyFire1384d ago

I can see people drawing blood after thanksgiving on Black Friday sales day.

This is what happens when games get Mature Nintendo. haha.

For the doubters WiiU is at least 50 times as powerful as the Wii.

My WiiU favs are Super Mario U, Lego City Stories, ZombiU, and CoD. Nice combo there right. :P

BrutallyBlunt1385d ago

It will be interesting how things go this holiday season.

jaymart2k1385d ago

I can see it aleady.

Mom & Dads at Black Friday, where's the Wii U only to find out it's sold out.

Then comes the Ebay people making 2-3 times the money.

ninjabake1385d ago

PlayStation 2 and Wii launch all over again LOL I can literally see the sign on the door already "Wii u: Awaiting further stock" we shall see how Nintendo holds up during the holidays it looks good so far but they MUST meet demand if preorders are sold out now, what do they think its gonna be like when the hype train rolls in with the heavy promotion?

ipe1385d ago (Edited 1385d ago )

So sales around 100k from gamestop if its true 4 every store.

jaymart2k1385d ago

Try like 20-30 every Gamestop

Wal-Mart,Target,etc get 5-10

ronin4life1385d ago

Were are you guys getting these numbers? O.o

ipe1385d ago

Every gs gets 20 units for launch.

ronin4life1385d ago

How do you know?? Did a GameStop person say something? Now I feel left out...
I MUST KNOW THE SECRET!!

...please? @.@;;;

TheRealSpy1385d ago

sure are a lot of suckers out there

DeadlyFire1384d ago

I can see WiiU taking a real stand as the 2ndary console of this generation for my home.

Sure its not aiming to be running Unreal Engine 4 at a high resolution or loaded up with RAM, but it looks good. Hardware should be at least 50x what the Wii can do. What other console developer can say they have made a quantum leap in power like that. When and if they do reveal final specs they have lots of material to market the WiiU. I am thinking its based off the R700 series with a AMD 4860M type specs. It doesn't fit into the whole 5x the last console generation. It goes beyond that and proves that Nintendo might be ready to hit the bigger leagues with its next round. Their aim is to likely hit a PS2 like success.

it's a shame USA doesnt get the zombi u premium package, that cost's £350.
