damn... glad I preordered one yesterday at Gamestop..... sounds like all the preorders are going to be gone soon.... word is (what the salesman at gstop said..LOL) is that there probably won't be any available until after Xmas if you don't preorder..... I actually believe the gstop guy on this one....

Yeah..... its gonna do fine at launch, Im just worried that I will have to buy one on ebay for 800 to 1000 bucks, I was gonna wait till november but I dont think I can

Has it even come up on Amazon yet ?

ronin4life2221d ago

Seems to me it is being limited to direct Retail stores for now...
Thanks for the link^.^

The tide of pre-orders don't really mean anything to the initial success of a system.

If I remember correctly, the first edition bundles were very limited, and had a bunch of incentives for what was the absolutely guaranteed first buyers anyway.

Nonetheless, this is a good point and absolutely true. But I will remain... cautiously optimistic.

Well, I assume that this premium, black 32 GB Wii U is also going to be, to some extent, a limited edition also so it is very much a fair comparison.

But in this case, with a November launch...the numbers are far more higher. Nintendo's launch numbers even for 3DS broke weekly records.
