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.

Around $500 by the time you add the game, remote, shipping and taxes.
Added, what a rip off.

Wii U bundle prices are about $100 more than what the prices should be. These will have the same fate as the original 3DS offerings.

In store prices confirmed.

$20 at TRU. They printed up the preorders on generic cards. They were at every register so no one can miss it. Rep stated only 1 per customer. I don't know how that would stop someone from coming in the next day to do another.

$5 at BB. Didn't see any official presale cards anywhere. Preorder receipt ticket can be printed up on their own from their kiosk at their game dept. Just type in Wii U in the search. Both skus were available. Saw nothing on a limit. For a fear of shortage, did 2 preorders for the deluxe. Cashier probably thought it was a game (and that this is a new thing that started today for them) so she didn't say anything. Again, don't see how they can track/stop anyone from doing a few today and through out the weekend.

No limit? If they don't fix that soon I bet they'll oversell.

EDIT: Perhaps they got more stock allocated/confirmed. all the stores that were showing unavailable for in-store pickup in my area now suddenly have stock again.

Sears if offering 10 extra points per dollar spent through Chase freedom right now. Thats about 10 percent off or tax if you live here in cali. Anyone know if this applies to this pre order? Does sears charge on the spot or when item ships? any info would be appreciated.

I went through their portal hoping for the 10% off. I'd say it's 50/50 though since it specifically says the button must be an "add to cart" item and I'm not sure if preorder qualifies. Worth a shot and I'd only be out the $5.99 shipping vs going to BB or TRU.

Gamestop is sold out of all pre-orders for the deluxe nationwide. If you are heading out today, best try somewhere else. Basic is still available at some locations though.
