Quote :
Nintendo’s marketing vice president has insisted that fresh Wii U supplies are incoming to alleviate the new console bottleneck, promising “a great quantity” though warning that shortages may still be on the cards. “Demand has been phenomenal” Scott Moffitt told Forbes, though declined to give any specific sales figures, only highlighting the sell-out presales and insisting that there will be more Wii U units than there were Wii consoles at the older model’s launch.

No problem. You should probably make a bullet list of what each version comes with.

Pretty sure there will be a lot of "Why should I get the Deluxe (Black) over the Basic (White)?"

It's kind of a no brainer to go for the black to get the extra cradle/stand, game, and 32gb memory - which I'm sure they're counting on.

Yep. If I was going to get one it would be black. The price has me thinking though.

Thanks, pre-ordered mine through Best Buy, might as well rack up some rewards. Can't believe the white one doesn't even come with the mini games for $300.

Between RZ points and 2% cash back with CSP (and Amazon now charging tax in CA) it seems like BB is the winner. Never thought I'd say that. Wink

Called/went to 4 GS stores. Told multiple stories.
- Only 1 total preorder per person/household. Including all stores instore and online.
- Up to 2 per person/household
- Only 1 perorder/per household per Wii sku
- If their data base shows you (from name/phone#/address/reward#/cc#???) preordered more than 1 via instore or online, they will cancel all your preorders

Just to note: just called my local Best Buy and TRU. Both will start their instore preorders tomorrow. They both don't know the deposit amt.

I'm not sure how much of that is true... yet. I'm sure they'll finalize the policy but it seems like they rushed to beat everyone else. I did two pre-orders at the same GameStop at the same time for the 32GB console.

no brainer to buy the black version and then sell the stupid tablet for 130ish if those things retail for 170instores.
Then go buy the real controller for 50.

350-130 = 220+50 = 270 for black version with real controller and nintendoland game. not bad.
