Imagining your avatar pic guy saying that was awesome.

Must be a kid @ AWBrawler lol

You're like that guy who says "Uh, I'm not racist. I have black people for friends."

blumatt2243d ago (Edited 2243d ago )

Why is it racist that he thinks it's funny imagining him saying that. I hate that every time something is said in regard to a person of color, it's "racist."
Get off your soapbox. Hell, he (AWBrawler) didn't even get mad about it. lol

ANYWAY. This doesn't surprise me. WalMart seems to also give preferential treatment to the Xbox 360. The brick-and-mortar stores still have the advantage. I prefer using Amazon and online shopping but there are still a lot of consumers who prefer to purchase products at WalMart and the like.

@blumatt. Its amazing how easy it is to see someone that's racist on the internet. They instantly blame the other guy without question. Nothing new here.

As for the article. Amazon will sell it at some point. They are giving in to retail first for launch because of limited quantities. As the numbers go up so will the number of online retailers selling the WiiU. Just as other consoles have been sold this way. Its the cheapest way. I wouldn't doubt that Wal-Mart is trying to get deals going for them.

I meant that it was bad ass. I imagine you have a kind of deep voice right?

AWBrawler2243d ago

lol How did race get involved, and i type like i talk, so maybe you'll hear me say that on youtube.

SilentNegotiator2243d ago

Nintendo would have to have rocks in their heads to not distribute through one of the internet's top, if not THE top, distributors.

irepbtown2243d ago is selling the Wii U

Link to basic pack:

Link to Premium Pack:

So I'm guessing this is US only?

Oh my, this is totally going to prevent me from buying a Wii U, because I only purchase stuff at Amazon.

DragoonsScaleLegends2243d ago

So where do you get your food from?

Dovahkiin2243d ago

And you can actually buy food from Amazon.

Sarcasm2243d ago

The thing preventing me from buying a Wii U is a Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim edition

Hellsvacancy2243d ago

What? you should already have a PS3, the new slim is just a cheaper looking version of the old one

I aint buying a Wii-U or a new slim, ill save the money, spend it on pot, id rather waste my money with a smile on my face

Sarcasm2243d ago

That went over your head didn't it. lol

Its selling on all amazon stores but not on amazon-us.I wonder why.No they are not the world rulers like they think they are.Good for nintendo for not bending to them!

RememberThe3572243d ago

Are you serious? So Nintendo gives Wal-Mart preferential treatment and Amazon is just supposed to be cool with it?

Nintendo of America and Amazon are not not too far from each other (Nintendo being in Redmond and Amazon being South Lake Union). Maybe Nintendos dog pissed in Amazons yard? Nintendo pissing off such a large retailer isn't smart no matter how you look at it.

yesmynameissumo2243d ago

Walmart still has Basic consoles available for pre-order, but it's in a ridiculous bundle. Shame Amazon won't/can't sell them.

rainslacker2243d ago

Yeah if you hunted them down they had some links where you could just buy the console. I went to hunt them down for you all but they removed the option to buy them from those links.:*( Sorry I couldn't be more help
