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.

the Wii U box is about 14 x 11.5 x 5.5 inches. Uline has some 14x12x6 boxes for under $0.70 that might work.
Use Sale code: SP322 when checking out.

That takes the price from $0.88/ea down to $0.61/ea. You have to buy a minimum of 25 boxes.

I got an email last night from kmart saying my order placed in september has been processed and is awaiting shipment. I used next day shipping, so hopefully I get it Monday.

I didn't get a Wii preorder in at my Walmart but I figured I could snag one if they had a midnight release. I went in and asked them. The guy said he had no clue if they were even getting enough to honor the preorders. He made it seem like they had a ton of orders. I just can't picture it, I live in a small town in Iowa. There is about 30k people.
I drive over to the target, see pic below. They still have preorders left, LMAO! I snagged the last 2. I plan to get there when they open and grab deluxe models instead but if not, basic will do.

Ebay listings are up to over 800 for the deluxe model. The numbers keep going up each week. It was 500 + a few weeks ago. I expect a surge in listings this coming week where the price will fall and depending on availability through the first few weeks of December the price to either stay the same or rise sharply as people begin to panic.

An interesting "error" on Walmart.com - It's coming back with a "Temporary Difficulty" error when I click on my Wii U preorder (it worked last night and one game has already shipped), but all my other orders display fine. It also displays an error for a bundle that I cancelled so it seems to be limited to those bundles. Anyone else see the same?

I didn't see any WITH bids that were near $800. I saw a couple with a buy it now of $800, but it is still on their so obviously no one bought it at that price. It looks like they are still hovering around the $500-550 range.

It means 800 total listings, not $800 ending price.

Your Walmart.com account shows an order? Oh man I guess I won't be getting one Frown

I received an email that the Wii U's wont be shipped till after the 18th so I thought I was okay

Also, my CC had a pending charge a week ago and now it's gone....Is this the case for others or did Walmart.com cancel my order?

Anyone in the Atlanta area (north 'burbs in particular), talked to a Target, Best Buy or TRU to get word on how they'll be handling the launch for those of us without pre-orders? Or how many they might have in stock for walk-ups?

My CC also had another pending charge last week specifically for the Wii U unit itself but it also fell off. Also, my card has not yet been charged for the game that actually did ship. I'll remain cautiously optimistic because I did get my original Wii bundle from them back in 2006 without a hitch.

okay.... I didn't receive anything about my game being shipped so I take it they cancelled without notifying me. This is such a let down for a Friday
