I wonder what the MOST anyone paid for a Wii U was in this entire pre-release gray market....
eBay Supply > Demand
To many people had the same idea. Serves them right.
Serves you right! Go Nintendo?
I wonder if no one is buying as many of them or if Nintendo actually made a decent amount of supply? They are in stock pretty well around here.... I went to pick mine up @ Gamestop yesterday @ 11am and no one was around.. It seemed a little weird...
and asked if they were doing amidnight launch for the wii-u. this particular location wasnt doing that. They had all of their preorders notified and were not getting any leftovers so no sense in creating a pandemonium. Their midnight launch for halo 4 and COD BLOPS2...yeah that was crazy.
Cool. I'm kind of glad there may be a decent supply out there. I can't stand these resellers snatching them up keeping someone else who loves gaming from buying one without getting ripped off....
Ebay Take a chunk of your sales %20 i think? so ebay is not very good unless you know you will double your profit . and i remember Ps3's and xbox 360's selling for 1k back in 2005-2006
well of course it would sell out everywhere being that it is a new console and the only one but after the taste wii left in many peoples mouths, i dont see the crazy demand lasting long. is it a better console than the wii? from the looks of it without question but i def see a lot of people, myself included, waiting until its a $200-$250 system and thats provided im bored with my new xbox/ps4 at that point which i doubt. good luck to Nintendo though, i never want to see them go under thats for sure, if i had kids i would no doubt buy it for them
How is this "sold out everywhere?" I just saw some at my local Target. Anyway, it's great to see scalpers churning out losses at ebay. Perhaps this is the reason you can walk into a store and find it.
Wow that's unusual for a console launch O_O
