Kotaku - Let's say you really, really want a Wii U for Christmas. Problem is, it's pretty tough getting hold of a pre-order, because most places are sold out. What options are you left with?
Two. The first is to suck it up and spend the holidays without a Wii U. The second is to take to eBay and/or Amazon, where savvy assholes and re-sellers are more than happy to get you a Wii U. For a price.
