Wii U Basic Set and Wii U Deluxe Set back in stock at GameStop, available online

You may want to jump on this deal as quickly as possible, Nintendo’s new Wii U console is back in stock at GameStop. No telling when they will sell out again so go get it fast.

The White Basic set has been in and out of stock for the last two-weeks at GameStop, though the Deluxe set has been sold out everywhere for weeks. No telling when the stock will last, so we suggest that if you have been looking for either the White Wii U set or the Black Wii U set that you head over GameStop and add yours to the cart as quickly as possible. (GameStop, Wii U)

How has it been out of stock for 2 weeks if the system has only been out a week. Prior to the release it was in stock, but not sell-able to the masses. Unless the writer is talking about preorders?

The deluxe is the best one to go with for the extra 50 dollars.

i think because 13-20 was one week, and 20-27 was another week. So weeks, not to mention the pre-order sell-out like you said. i guess the author is just a day early if you want to get specific.

Is this in store or online. GameStop online is a joke and anybody that worked for GameStop knows that. It runs off the same in stock computer system as the stores. Just because it said they are in stock on the website means it found some in a GameStop store and it assumes it is not already sold. I was going to pre order a game from GameStop.com and the local manager told me the odds of preordering from the website and actually getting were almost none existant because they prioritize in store customers first... So if they sold out of pre ordered copy's at launch I would have had to wait for a restock even though I pre ordered lol.

This isn't exactly true. The system is available to order online, but if you look at the details directly listed under "Add To Cart," it says "Backordered." This means that you can purchase the system in full, but you won't actually receive the system until GameStop has access to them, which is an indefinite amount of time. The same thing happened with the Wii, where people would order the system online but were told it could be a few months before they actually received it.

Wii U seems like it has its uniqueness but ill wait and see how things play out with it. This gen ill be a wise prudent and not jump to conclusions by rushing in getting a console. Ill wait and witness what the juggernauts have to offer first then ill make my choice....

Yeah I am going to wait too. Looks like they need to fix some stuff with their interface and make it go faster and get a few more premium games out for the console. I never brought a Wii, but I will definitely buy the WiiU. Just not right at this moment.

It's not going to be hard to get a WiiU like it was with the Wii. So I hope people don't go buying this thing for a crazy amount off ebay. Nintendo needs to move this consoles as soon as possible, so they will pump them out quickly. That's one of the benefits of needing software to sell in order for the console to be successful.

These have been available in my area. At wal mart they have a full stock. They had no ps3s and only one Xbox.

My area has been sold out solid since launch. I've only seen one in stock since but that was before the store opened and it was gone when I clocked out a bit after they opened.
