just walk into target & buy one.. There was like 4 i seen last night

Erimgard1336d ago

That's an anomaly. Most places are sold out.
And for people who have the pre-order at GameStop, it's not that easy. See Trip C50's post.

seamonkey4201335d ago

agreed. was in downtown minneapolis target and can plainly see 3 Wii U Deluxes and 4 Wii U Basics. Checked two other Targets in suburbs and they also had several Wii U Basics but no Deluxes. If you want a Wii U Deluxe, they are around. :)

Well a couple who is having a hard time tracking one down could sure use your help so show the pics, and point that couple to your store so they can find one real easy.

zgoldenlionz1335d ago

Agreed wiiu is available at multiple locations around my town.

There's at least 2 to 3 WiiUs floating about at Best Buy, Target, and Walmart. The 3 Gamestops near my house also have WiiUs available...as well as the Toys R US.

WiiU being sold out is an exaggeration to generate hype...

THE TRUTH IS NINTENDO IS MAKING GOOD ON THEIR PROMISE TO KEEP THE SYSTEMS COMING MORE FREQUENTLY. I WAS AT WALMART AND BESTBUY THIS WEEKEND, AND SAW SOME DELUXES AND BASICS. THE NEXT DAY(WE SHOP A LOT)I LOOKED AGAIN AND ALL WERE GONE. JUST WHAT I HAVE NOTICED.

ConstipatedGorilla1335d ago

Well I was in Target yesterday and they had zero, so....

liquidgravity1335d ago

No dought, i was just in walmart and they had 4 black units and 3 white.

Okay I really screwed myself here. I sold my wii and most of the games to a GameStop for in store credit and jumped on the wait list. Now I'm stuck with that GameStop because of the money I have invested there. I see deluxe Wii Us at other stores just sitting there laughing at my stupidity. FML

Sucks man... talk to the manager and see if they can get you your money back. Good luck... feel free to friend me when you get your Wii U. I'm guitarded77 across all platforms.

vallencer1335d ago

See if they are willing to call the other store to have one transferred and if they say no ask to talk to their district manager.

Gamer781335d ago

THE MANAGER SHOULD BE ABLE TO PUT THE MONEY ON A GIFT CARD FOR YOU THEN CALL ANOTHER STORE TO ARRANGE YOU TO PICK ONE UP. IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE MANAGER. I HAVE A FRIEND THAT WOULD DO THAT FOR ANYBODY WHO WAS LOOKING FOR A PRODUCT, NO MATTER IF IT AFFECTS HIS STORE'S NUMBERS OR NOT.

TripC501335d ago

I will try that. Thanks

Erimgard1336d ago

Sorry to hear that. Best Buy had problems with not being able to meet their pre-order promises, so it's not just you and GameStop. All I can tell ya is keep a close eye on your local GameStop, because they're gonna go fast.

I might sell my deluxe. I played it a couple of times. It's cool and all but I have a 360 and ps3 already. So I might sell mine for what I paid for it.

ConstipatedGorilla1335d ago

Dude relax. Just give it some time. Zelda and metroid will be good I'm sure.

Skate-AK1335d ago

They are all over Target and Walmart up here in Alaska.

christheredhead1335d ago

Yah, its been sort of hit and miss. Gamestop, for the most part, seems to be sold out across the board.

Walmart and Target in my area (Houston) have about 10 of each set available. This was like 2 days ago so who knows now. Definitely a good place to check if you didn't pre order a console.

jbgamer1335d ago

So give some proof of the systems not being sold out when Cnet, even that joke Patcher, Entertainment weekly, CNN, Current TV, all say the same thing it is sold out everywhere it just so happens that anti Ninendo people they can magically see lots of the machine where everyone else cannot, what is your secret?

jbgamer1335d ago

Ok i have family who wants them so hey you all show me pictures and i will tell my relatives to go to the stores and get one ok?

christheredhead1335d ago

Why would I need proof?

Also, anti Nintendo people? What are you talking about? I'm just letting people know to check those stores and possibly that area for availability. I was at both those stores for other deals and sales and saw that they had a nice little supply in stock. That's about it.

Why would I need to lie about something like that? That would be silly.
