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 set the thing up last week but still haven't taken a single game out of the plastic... so now it's collecting a subtle layer of dust... I am looking forward to playing though! LMAO... I should have treated it like my Xbox 360 2nd shipment launch and just stuck it somewhere until christmas eve night...

I don't get why these console manufacturers love to produce products in glossy black that are so dust and finger print prone. MATTE, we want matte texture consoles and accessories.

Doesn't bother me much... I like the black brushed metal look the best, though. It's on my 55" 3d tv but the manufacturer actually had an artist design the casing for the model line..,

Even though I don't have any Wii Us on hand any longer, I reposted my CL ad for $400 and didn't get one text or email. Maybe I shouldn't buy anymore.

And this is not a perfect analogy by any means, but the Furby reselling market is heating up. You can still find those on the shelves too, but I am getting more and faster ebay sales at $70+. Like I said, not an ideal analogy but if there is more of a shortage of Wii Us and people want them for their precious little children, then could still see a spike in prices.

I went to 3 Targets tonight and all of those were out of stock, so it's not like they are plentiful here in my area...well at leat not at target. I honestly haven't looked at BB or TRU.
i'm sorry but $70 on a 50+ dollar investment... umm ok. That's lukewarm at best...shake head if you can sell them on craigslist for 75, and you paid 55 for them, ok not too bad. Ebay fees and shipping kill profits. If you can't get $20 or more over what you paid, you are making next to nothing if not breaking even. I am struggling a bit with my investments too. I think that things will pick up but it is happening very slowly...

Not really.. Depends how many you sell. Ebay pretty much works on volume for everything. Selling 100 video games and make 2 dollars each profit.

What do we need to take to return a Wii that was shipped from Walmart to the physical store? Just the invoice that came with it?

I never bothered to pickup my Walmart layaways. Ill just let them cancel on their own after dec 14. I lose 15 bucks but saves me 3 trips to Walmart.

inventory check may lie. Those might be preorders not picked up yet and ppl can't buy them until 12/14

depends on the merchant but most will allow you to return to a store.
