Need for Speed: Most Wanted Wii U, Where the hell are you?

TruTechNoid qoutes "Today (22/03/2013) i went to buy the newly released NFS: Most Wanted for the Wii U, I already have it on the 360 but wanted the Wii U version as a comparison piece for an article I was going to do. Actually getting the game in my hand turned out to be harder than I thought, first off I went to GAME the UK’s largest video game specialist and to my surprise it was not situated within the Wii U section"

i went to get mines at gamestop i preorderd it. they only had 1 copy, mines.
meaning if anyone else wanted it they were sold out after selling 1. XD

not sure if they have more now tho.
but my walmart doesn't seem to have it. i haven't checked anywhere else since i have mines already.

I got mine from GameStop too. They actually had 1 copy for once when I wanted something. I hadn't preordered it, and apparently no one else had.

I'm sick of that Game Stop preorder Bull crap though.

'Did you preorder it? Oh... Well it might be a while.'

So what you're saying is, I should just order my games online and never shop here? O.k. If you insist.

Every time I've pre-ordered in the past, I felt like Chris Rock on 'Everybody Hates Chris' when the local thug bullied him out of money.

'Hey! Let me hold a dollar!'

When I had preordered Zombi U, then chose to wait on buying the Wii U, I preordered it a city away because there wasn't a GameStop in my town yet. A month and a half later, they opened one. Right before Christmas. When I finally did go to switch over the Preorder to another game because I bought the Zombi U bundle, I couldn't use my preorder in the store in my town. I had to drive to the next city over.

Screw that place.

Should have bought it on Origin while they had it for $30.

have fun trying to play the game online while you're taking a shit (Wii U gamepad) on Origin.

Holster that gun, he's not trolling ;) He's referring to the fact that EA had the Wii U version on sale for $30 on Origin (presumably mistakenly) for a day or two. The game also semi-forces you to sign up to Origin when you play it, which sucks - mainly because it would seem that every conceivable permutation of letters in the English language has already been used as an Origin username - eventually I just typed random crap, I have no idea what my Origin username is :/

Thank you Nevers0ft... they had it up for $30 for a couple of days, and I know a few people who got in on it. I was gonna get it, thinking the sale would be up for a few more days, and when I went back it was at $60. So I was saying that I (and others wanting it) should have bought it on Origin while they had the sale.

oh whoops, sorry. I forgot, I did see EA was having a sale off of gonintendo. my apologies, sir. bubble up.

I grabbed it on Origin as mentioned before, but I've seen it in stores. U.S., though

It's a shame that most retailers don't pick up games. My GameStop said they didn't want to carry it....
Cam977  +   709d ago
Retailers obviously don't have high demand for it; thus, their stocks reflect that.
scottd  +   709d ago
I know in the area i live in gamestop wont get more than a copy or 2 unless there's high demand for a product or pre-orders
So far nothing Wii U (console or games) are flying off the shelves here. Most PPl I know don't even know it exist.

I went to Game and it was like dealing with dumb people who work in an industry they know nothing off. duhhhhh

Seriously no shops have got need for speed on wii u in stock ive tried asda,tesco,hmv,grainger and even game and whats more worrying some shop staff in a certain shops didnt even know anything about it. How is a game suppose to sell well if nobody gets it in stock.I for one will be welcoming digital downloads if they just lower there prices.
