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.

Ah so you used Walmart's inventory which is scamming the retailer which both you and your wife were into but then it is Walmart's fault because you couldn't scalp these Wii Us for a profit? So that's why you'll never buy from Walmart again? Hilarious. Anyone reading your "I'll never buy another product from Walmart again" knows this isn't a reality especially if they have another item you can scam using their inventory for free and try to scalp. Oh and they accepted both of your returns anyway...... Yet you still complain amazing.
And yet you still troll on a thread that you know you have absolutely no interest in. If you really need a Wii U that bad, I'll be more than happy to find you one in your area. Otherwise, keep your fingers off the keyboard and do your daily puppy-kicking instead, Hot Head.

And stay off the roads, unless you plan on just driving off into a river.

First of all have had a Wii U since Nov 18 @ 12am.... I didn't need to scalp it for a pre-order quick buck. Secondly please make me keep my fingers off the keyboard. Third at least I have a car to drive.

Enter more giveaways see if you can win some free stuff! LMAO

Kinda affected ya, didn't I? Enough for you to personally message me some 'mean' sentence and for you to look at my SD history. Yeah, I try to get free stuff - not sure how that translates to somehow not having a vehicle - I'm a VW guy, actually - owned one since I was 17.

I hope you're having a blast with your WiiU, I know my fiance loves it. And yes, she's a real woman. I know your idea of a fiance is the blow up sheep you keep under your bed. Isn't it a pain to keep having to blow it up every time you want to use it? Why not just keep it inflated?

But since we're getting off the subject... Target has ZombiU for $45.

I'm just waiting on a price drop for the XBOX-style controllers, but I bet that will be a while!

Since its debut last month, Nintendo’s new Wii U console has surpassed the launch sales of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

In a span of four weeks of being on the market, Nintendo has sold over 1.8 million Wii U consoles. In that same amount of time, Microsoft sold 940,000 Xbox 360 consoles, and Sony shipped 540,000 PlayStation 3 consoles.

For comparison’s sake, in its first four weeks on sale, 2.07 million Wii consoles were sold in 2006.

The last deal I took advantage of was the Wii Play: Motion w/ Motion Plus Remote for $15 at Walmart. And taking advantage of BestBuy's 100% trade-in bonus each remote cost me $5. I haven't seen anything like that since.
