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, they are not. In most cases, unlike target, the Wal-Mart employee wants to help you be a satisfied customer.
Varies from store to store. For the most part, I have had much better luck with Target employees then Walmart.

I am still trying to get a handle on how this is going to sell this holiday season and what the real dollar value is going to be for resellers.


Will Nintendo be ready with more units than the retailer channel needs to cover demand?
Are we likely to pull away with more than $100 in profit?
Is Craigslist a better idea than Ebay?
How saturated will the market be with people doing the same thing?
Is the sellout due to a flood of speculators that remember what happened during the original Wii release?
Does anyone remember what happed to the most recent Elmo speculators? (Return line...rhetorical question)

There is no right or wrong answer to most of these questions but if you are banking on making a killing something tells me that not going to happen this time around.

(And if you preordered some crazy number of these things, you will either be labeled a genius or a total idiot when its all said and done!)

Now next year when the XBOX 720 and the PS4 hit.......Well all bets are off! That is going to be a frenzy of video gaming masses going totally ape over what ever quantity is available and I am already quite sure that there wont be enough to go around for either console.
The PS4 isn't coming out till 2014.. and MS is having production problems and might not be able to make a 2013 release

Thanks everyone for your confirms (I think I repped ya'll) Glad to see I still have a chance of keeping my Walmart order...my sisters two orders (on separate accounts different cards) were cancelled without notification and when she called they told her that they would not have enough stock to fulfill all the orders so they were cancelling all online pre-orders....just about died but mine has authorized to my card and it sounds like others have their orders coming in so thank you and here's to hoping everyone's pre-orders actually arrive!!!

Why do you wish harm unto someone else? Are you reselling Wii U's also? You really should wish this person well. It is because they are grabbing up all the supply that the demand will go up.

I'm a little envious as I really can't get 25 pre-orders. I wouldn't be able to buy even half of them at once and I would have to be doing a lot of trips to Target to get another after a sale.

I wish you well as it will probably mean I will also do well. Smilie

If you got in early (mid-september) I think you will be fine....the orders that are getting cancelled are those probably made in october when stock keeps coming in and out...

All this pre-order talk has me worried. Will there be systems available at Wal-Mart or similar stores for those without a pre-order that plan to wait in line?

Sorry, but I would say there isn't a chance. Preorders are getting canceled and there likely won't be enough on release day at Walmart for people who did preorder.
