Wii U Trending At Walmart Online

Once again, Wii U is coming up as a bestseller in a US online retailer, and is in fact sold out online again. How is the console really selling? (New Super Luigi U, New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U)

Seems like all these bundles and deals are finally catching some attention.
Good to hear.

I bought the Mario bundle and have been waiting forever for the terrible services of FedEx to come through.
PhatsoJuggalo806  +   122d ago
I work in the FedEx warehouse. Our terminal has been delaying trailers like a whole day since the holiday starting kicking in, so yeah it might be it bit slow in some areas

You cant really be this short on any amount of common sense. Obviously there's slow downs with all mail services during the holidays when the workload increases by 100 fold.

P.S. Please do not breed, ever. kkthnks!

I just finally got a package from Fedex last night after 12 days. Longest I've ever waited. Gonna use UPS if I'm ever given a choice.

Meh, holiday sales.
zero_gamer  +   122d ago
Same with much of PS4 and Xbox One sales.

A console being the top selling item for ONE DAY is basically irrelevant.
zero_gamer  +   122d ago
A Nintendo console selling better than you wanted is "basically irrelevant."

Wii U has been trending at my house ever since I got Deus Ex.
MsmackyM  +   122d ago
I bought Deus Ex off Newegg for $22, and can't stop playing it. The Gamepad definitely adds to the experience.
hduce  +   122d ago
Wii U was trending at my house day one.
TheUndertaker85  +   122d ago
Great. Gotta keep up with trends.
Chrono  +   122d ago

I don't think so.
TheUndertaker85  +   122d ago
Yup, not trending and not sold out either.


Congrats also Nintendo fans. Apparently Walmart also believes the Xbox 360 with Kinect is valid when searching for WiiU.

The Mario/Luigi Wii U bundle is sold out online. It even says "Sold Out Online" next to the item.

Do you even bother to look at your own link that you posted? There are other models available, but the article is specifically referring to that bundle.
Dunban67  +   122d ago
It said the "holiday Bundle for $324 is "out of stock online", available in stores
but it was not a Mario bundle- It was a somewhat odd bundle were you could choose a game and an accessory (or game) but if you choose the Wi mote it adds $20 to the price

The games you could choose from are mostly from the early releases at launch- not Mario or Luigi though-

The pricing for most of there bundles was confusing- A Zombi U bundle for $389- A Deluxe Wii u w Nintendo land for $399

If a parent tried to order one and was not sure of what they wanted and were not extra careful they would buy the wrong bundle-

upon further review - to say the "Wii U is sold out again" in the article header is very misleading- The Wii U is not sold out or remotely close- it looks as if 1 bundle was out of stock online but in stock at walmart stores across the country- There were plenty of other Wi u s and Wii U bundles available online and at stores

What are you talking about....The Wii U holiday bundle IS SOLD OUT...Right here and right now..your looking at the wrong bundle.... http://www.walmart.com/sear...

This is as of 11:00am Pacific time. Not saying they will not get more in, but not in stock now...There are plenty of other Wii U bundles in stock though.

You don't think so? What do you mean? I just looked. Your link goes to Walmart's page, not Wallmart Wii U's. So I looked and it says "out of stock online"

Dunban67  +   122d ago
I just clicked on your link- it has the Mario bundle and holiday bundle in stock online- they must have resupplied
TheUndertaker85  +   122d ago
The point of the link is to show the Trending page for Walmart.

"Walmart’s new Trending page on their online store reveals that their Wii U bundle has been a bestseller all day today."

FYI: It isn't trending or even on that list
DoctorJones  +   122d ago
Chrono gave a link to the Walmart home page and TheUndertaker85 gave a link that proved the article was right, effectively owning themselves.

Well, thanks guys.

Its probably been selling at least decently just all those negative articles trying to manipulate the consumer into not even thinking about buying one.

Last night I saw a big Wii U kiosk at the mall with a lot of people crowding around it. It was right next to Gamestop too, which made it convenient for anyone who liked what they saw to stop in and get one. I don't plan on buying any of the new consoles anytime soon, but I thought it was pretty cool to see Nintendo marketing their console aggressively for a change.
Beastforlifenoob  +   122d ago
How does it make it "convienient" just because they see a wII U kiosk doesnt mean they are going to run into gamestop and pick one up they will probably go back home and think about the purchase.

Good, I hope it starts to do well.
LOL_WUT  +   122d ago
I'm starting to see more ads from them even on YouTube good to see Nintendo really trying to push the WiiU. Even though I wish this were true it needs more than one retailer to give it that nice push ;)

WiiU is selling very well on play.com as well ???
ZainreFang  +   122d ago
What? This system isn't selling at all! How can it sell out anywhere? BTW PS4 is extinct from trillions of sales in 2 minutes.
Dunban67  +   122d ago
Considering there has been overstock of Wii U s since January last year, I hate to see the console miss 1 sale due to being sold out as good as it sounds-

although it looks like they may have re upped supply quickly as it does not appear to be sold out now at WMT online unless I am looking at it wrong
jaymacx  +   122d ago
The on sale priced one is sold out but they do have the Mario U bundle
_QQ_  +   122d ago
Sounds about right.
InTheLab  +   122d ago
Looked it up and the WiiU is the only this gen console available online. Both PS4 and XBO are only available through certain stores.

Improved sales for the WiiU is good news but lets not spoil it by calling it a best seller or sold out, as it is neither of those things.
HardcoreDaBoss  +   122d ago
i posted something earlier about this.. wii u is flying off the shelves at wal mart... I seen just 1 in stock in my area
TheUndertaker85  +   122d ago
There's six at the Walmart my fiancée works at. Less than XOne but not sold out.

They have about fifteen XOnes left.
HardcoreDaBoss  +   122d ago
i didnt say they are sold out.. Im just saying they are selling great. they said consoles were dead??? lol all three are selling at the highest rates of any other console generation.. props to sony. MS and nintendo
Joey_Leone  +   122d ago
Not to start a console war here but, does wii u have trophies/achievements?
TheUndertaker85  +   122d ago
No. They talked up the feature before launch but then left it up to Devs to integrate those features into their games rather than system wide.
AKR  +   122d ago
Went to a Walmart yesterday in South Carolina - no new games,or console bundles they were all sold out. Only the older titles and accessories were left, except Skylanders and Disney Infinity
