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.

Enough with the false speculation people. Nintendo is selling 3.5 million consoles in the US prior to the end of their fiscal year, which is March 31st. Originally the wii sold 3.1 million between its release and March 31st. After the black Friday supply there will be no more until 2nd or 3rd week of December. The supply is very low. Of course people are seeing them on the shelves But that will stop after today. The majority of people who pay a premium for a system like this are parents of the 6-12 year olds. They will start going to gray market after they cannot get one after this weekend. At that point the gray market price will be determined how many consoles are left on eBay, amazon, Craigslist,etc.

It's actually 5.5 million worldwide so my prediction is that North America will receive somewhere closer to 1.5 million units between now and March.

Didn't you know? The guy pushing the carts is always the first to know about things like this.

Scalpers have a risk free investment and have only tied up some credit temporarily. The real losers are the stores who have to actually live with processing nonsense returns because a flipper couldn't get what they wanted.

A tad off-topic, but worth mentioning that I (and numerous other according to other Internet posts) was unable to transfer my data off the Wii using the prescribed process. Fortunately I didn't drop much cash over the years on virtual games but it's mildly annoying. Check out article at http://arstechnica.com/gaming/201...iling-wii/ to learn more. Hopefully it does not impact any of you. I did buy the original Wii when it was first released in 06.

Initial reaction after sampling 2 games is that it's a very interesting changeover from the Wii as far as adding a lot more complexity to the controls. Personally I'm a fan of the old school Atari one-stick-one-button style so the simplicity of the original Wiimote was compelling. Still, I'll try to roll with the times and see how it goes. (Insert rant about walking to school uphill both ways in 5' of snow when I was your age). Soap Box

There is probably a thread somewhere about discover cc but this would be helpful to fellow wii u sellers.

I called discover to let them know I had used my discover a lot last couple days and would be using today (to take advantage of the 2% cash back for using on Nov 23rd).. so don't flag my account.

The rep tells me of 2 new protections they have for no extra charge. If a retailer refuses to take back something (up to $500) i can return it to discover for refund $2500 limit per year. So even if I have a problem returning the wii u to WM or target.. i can return it to discover.

The other protection is on price.. if i buy something then see it cheaper in 90days discover will refund the difference. I'm going to try and use that later as I bought a game tue at target but it's on sale today at WM. She told me it even applies to BF sales.

1-800-638-8312

that was the number she gave me to call to process my credit later.

Well guys this has been my experience. Last time the Wii came out, it took me 2 weeks of searching and calling stores to get one after release. I finally got one one and was happy. This time I needed to buy 2 Wii U ( 1 for my mom and 1 for me), I managed to get both in under 2 days. If I wanted I could have bought more but I just buy what I need. I bought one at Walmart 30 miles South of Atlanta (home) and the other in Downtown Atlanta (work). I honestly dont think this will be as hard to get as the original Wii. My 2 cents.

IPad games suck compared to any console game
Yes they do, which is why I said it's ridiculous that I couldn't put down a cheesy free game on the ipad for hours, while my new Wii U console has just been sitting there so far.

I'd say she has enough then! I'm sure she'd have fun with either a Kinect or Wii U. I'd go with the Wii U, but it's also a lot more expensive.

Anyone here has any idea what walmart's return policy is on the deluxe? I bought the deluxe and opened the nintendoland to play with for a few hours. Is it still possible for me to return it?

He would of made more by just working @ Walmart than wasting all this gas/time.
$500 / $7 an hour = 71 hours, plus gas to and from work, dealing with stupid customers all day, with no scheduling flexibility.

You don't know a thing about what's worth it.
