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.

Looks like TRU is having a sale on Wii U games this week. I think someone has already stated the buy 1 get 2nd 40% off for any games under $50. Also, buy any $60 game and save $10. Buy 2 x $60 games and save $30. Their ad is expecting ACIII, Scribblenauts, and Fifa 13 on Tues. Who knows what they will have by this Sat 11/17. This is the best deal so far for games beating newegg by $3. The selection will probably be scarce. I would love to get Mario and Zombie U for $90.

I agree but still confused as to why someone that preordered online after me gets one. You would think if they oversold they would work backwards.
Just curious - When you pre-ordered in the store, did you supply the same contact info as you did in your online order? I'm wondering if Walmart is indirectly cracking-down on people who made multiple pre-orders, but since they have Reseller policies right on the site then it would make as much sense for them to just email people and say "We noticed you have 5 on order at multiple locations and we're canceling 3 of them pursuant to our reseller policies". Enough people have complained about the same issue you experienced that it seems a lot less coincidental.

Clipped from Walmart.com:

Am I the only one surprised that Nintendo has taken a back seat approach to advertising for the Wii U?

Not surprised at all. There is enough pre-release hype to carry this to launch. You'll probably see the first round of real ads come later this week.

I saw Wreck It Ralph yesterday and I saw a commercial for Wii U during the previews

Went to Wal*Mart and asked an employee in the video game section. He said "The Wii U preorders will arrive in a separate box from the store stock".

This means that there will be some available for those waiting in line. The store will receive their allocation PLUS any pre-orders that were placed through that store.

I'll see my SD brethren in line next Saturday night! Smilie

I hope every walmart (okay, just the 1 near me) handles it like this, I fully paid mine off in the layaway section and the guy was totally clueless. He went to search in the back for the wii U because he had no idea that it wasn't out yet, but then again he's just layaway not knowledgeable about games or anything.

Congrats you just lost your layaway preorder for paying it fully off.

for those that are planning to pick up their walmart layaways on launch, i'd recommend NOT showing up at midnight. I highly doubt that walmart's layaway department will be open that early. more like 9 am.

If walmart has Wii Us at midnight I wouldn't trust to leave my pre order there. I bet the electronics department would sell it or something.

what option do you have? the electronics department doesn't have access to the layaway system and would be unable to "locate" the bin # where your pre-order would be stored (probably a locked cage). i'm pretty sure that they will receive their shipments by wednesday/thursday of this week and it will be someone's job to tape that long layaway number to each console.

on another note, if my pre-orders aren't there at around noon then i'm okay with that. i thankfully pre-ordered at a few other retailers the weekend of the announcement. i am interested to see how best buy handles the pre-orders since it was reported that they accepted too many.
