Hundreds queue up for Wii U debut in Japan

phys.org: Hundreds of people queued up at electronics shops across Japan as Nintendo released its new Wii U game console, hoping to reposition itself in a gaming market invaded by online social games. About 100 people were waiting outside Bic Camera's flagship store in Tokyo's Ikebukuro commercial district before it opened at 8 am, with the number quickly swelling to several hundred. (Nintendo, Wii U)

Since when does Nintendo ship their systems in Japan after North America? Or is this just a case of how influential and powerful the U.S. market is?

Seriously man? I don't even like the WiiU, but I still respect, or at the very least, understand the reasons WHY someone would like it.

Nice. I've got loads lying around at home to sell but Amazon are still taking orders! Might have to keep one and return the others if this keeps up :(

Well said im the same. I got my wiiu last week and i really did not know what to expect but have have to say im really impressed it feels like a core console and feels like it will have legs unlike the wii did.

Im sure 99% of people who have got one will love it to.
