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 hate to break it to all the reseller's (and I am one too), but from all my experience dating back to 1999 I cannot remember any console actually increasing. Price with xmas approaching. The original wii held steady and dropped with xmas approaching. It did not increase. I never hopped on this bandwagon as it seemed like a fail from the start. Y'all shoulda bought tix to the bcs championship game. Were going for 800-900 before ND was a lock. Up to 1600-1700 now. I only know this as i bought a bunch at 1050 as I am an Irish fan. Go Irish!
exactly, I think a lot of people are just inexperienced with gaming/console reselling and do not know the history and past console launches. You have the initial first week to get the highest prices to resell. Actually it is closer to the first 3-4days. After that is has always been downhill. And for the WiiU the resale prices started at the lowest profit margin ever.

Have any of you returned yours back to Target that purchased with a $5 preorder card and received the $5 Target gift card at the time of purchase? I bought 4 and if I return the 4 will I lose the $20 I paid for the preorder cards or will I get that back on my Target Red card?

You lose the $5 I think.
Not to totally deflate everyones hopes, but I know a guy that works in one of the big videogame companies, and they passed on developing games for the Wii U. The said they wil sit back and see how it does. They were also surprised at Nintendo's lack of advertising for it. I hope it is not a dud from the consumer perspective, as I sunk over $500 into it between the consoe, games and accessories. It's a big chunk of my kid's Christmas gift. From a reseller perspective, you are really holding onto nothing. If you hold it for a month, youre also racking up interest charges on your CC if you purchased mutliples

I beg to differ.... History of previous consoles launches states it is dead and this is te lowest profile launch since the gamecube came out. Barring a major fire destroying every plane or boat with shipments there will not be a major shortage. Too many other console, and iGadgets. This is not going to take off. If it didn't when it first came out it sure isn't now. Hardware reviews have been lukewarm at best. Start looking for something else to flip, as the window was 3 days after launch.

I agree, I'm calling it. Every store had stock near me. I returned my 3 deluxe and canceled my other preorders today.

Saw a deluxe and regular in stock at target the other day. Deluxe box looked a little beat up, I bet it was a reseller return, and now the majority of stock is going to probably be returns for a while. Who knows what the sellers did to them, leaving them in hot trunks, dropping them on the floor, etc... Actually saw a batman commercial and it looked great. Too bad there aren't any other cool commercials for it.

yes the batman commercial is pretty cool. I was not going to pick up batman after reading the Wii u reviews but I'll try to pick up this along with fifa2013 if TRU's buy 1 get 1 50% off promotion is available online on Sunday.

For returns do these receipts have serial numbers?

Ok I'm finally seeing what you guys are here in ATL...was at TRU earlier and they had 4 deluxe in the case...then went to WM and they had 4 or 5 in the case there. However, I still got a text from an ad I posted two or three days ago for $400. I just texted them back and told them to go to TRU and pay retail.

However, it ain't over yet and if Nintendo just stops shipping these for 3 weeks, prices could certainly go up. And I possibly could have bought one at Target for $352 (after redcard discount) and sold it for $400 to this guy so anything is possible. But my money and attentions are better served on other deals at the moment.

I know some of them do. I did a return and rebuy at WM to get a gift receipt and they told me that I had the wrong one and it would have to match the serial #. I had it in the car as well and found the right one, but it can be an issue.

I don't think the preorder ones were done like this but the regular ones are if you buy them at WM later...or at least was for me.
