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.

I am a little surprised that the box is not sealed by tape (no sign of sealing tape
being removed). Is this true for any of you who have bought 1 or more?
This was true for the original Wiis too, right? Nintendo likes to do that for some reason..

Ultimately it ends up in the hands of someone who wants to play with it.
Seriously Bolland, you obviously are dedicating a lot of time to this.... every other post is from you. Do you have a job, or is this your job?

Picked up 4 Basic models earlier today... deluxe all sold out everywhere. I took the last one from local Target and BB I took 3 out of 10 or so available. Target was nice, with the 5% off, but too bad they only had 1.

I'm glad you have taken such an interest in me. My job and only mission in life is posting in this thread. Thank you for reminding me to do so.

I planned to look for some more Wiis but now credit card is near maxed from all these BF online deals, so I'll probably just go to Target and see if I can find one. The 5% Redcard discount is tough to pass up. That is about $18 off so just adds to profits.

Or I may not bother if I don't get any interest from CL today on what I already have...just playing it by ear. I'm pretty well stocked up right now so don't need to put more money out if I can avoid it...need to save some buying power for Cyber Monday.

I think Best Buy and Target have gotten more serious in their console launches it would seem.
Well Target must have gotten serious by delaying my online pre-order and shipping others. They are totally clueless.

And amazon got leapads in at all different times last year. Did it stop me from doubling my money ? Nope~

People post here as if it's something to gloat about if someone else makes money or doesn't make money. I have 2 units, whether i return them or not, is not a dire situation. I will still eat sh!T and sleep, and have sex whether they sell or don't. But have fun gloating! For what? To be the biggest douche on the internet? Good work, there is a lot worse trolls out there than those who post on slickdeals. And a lot more talented one's at that~
Never before have commas been more important. OMG

I don't think it's looking good. I was hopeful. I have 15 Deluxe. I'm not getting a single inquiry even at $450.

The Wii U did not even make it into the following Black Friday Ads in the Seattle area. Target, Fred Meyer, Toys R Us (tiny ad for games, no system), Best Buy, Kmart, or Walmart.

I'm not saying the final nail is in the coffin, but I think the writing is on the wall. Most of us were relying on BF ads to generate awareness and subsequent frenzy when parents realized they couldn't get one. Unfortunately, the awareness is still going to be lacking.

I'll start returning 2 a week until Xmas. That way if demand increases beyond supply, I can make SOME profit with the systems I have left. I paid cash for them all, so I'm not losing money on credit card interest.That's the only saving grace here. Hopefully some of you are seeing higher demand than the Seattle area.

How many people sitting on 10 of these (and finding their ebay accounts are severely limited) are thinking about just cracking open one and playing one?


I thought about buying one - but the game line-up just is weaaaaaak. If they had a few more games I would be all about it.

Just like the Wii, now that my unit is way free I finally set it up last night. Very svelte combination. Black is absolutely the only color to own for adults and it seems to be somewhat finger print resistant. I dunno how long the update took because I just went to bed.

I ended up with Batman (Lucky for me, I never opened my PS3 copy of Arkham City), Black Ops2 and of course NLand. All also free... I'm still ready if these boom in the next few weeks but could care less at this point... I'm more interested in the product itself.

Happy Thanksgivng.

The fact that 4 out of the top 5 are apple products tells you everything you need to know. It's a different world nowadays, casual gamers are just moving toward tablet/iphone gaming.
