Is there any chance I could still pre-order the WiiU at Walmart? Or what other stores still have pre-orders for it?
Via lay-a-way yes if your local WM haven't reached their limit yet. I got two ordered yesterday. It's two per customer.

oh and 74K in San Diego is living poor, (paycheck to paycheck)
When did I say I was rich? I would say I earn a decent salary. Not bad, not great, but nearly twice the median in the area. I have 1.3x my annual earnings in gold & silver, a 6 month health&beauty/food stockpile and a 12 month emergency fund. But that's basically paycheck to paycheck.

Thanks. Going to see if I still can at mine. How much do you think it would cost to pick up on Craigslist if they were out?

Gotta admit, I made a killing on Wii's as well. It was really nice. Anybody think the Wii U is headed in that direction?

lol Every year it's the same idiots piping up about how resellers are evil. I made thousands reselling Wii's when they weren't at every Target or Walmart. F em. Haters are gonna hate & no amount of reasoning & logical discussion will change their tiny pea-brains.
Just wondering, about how much exactly did you guys make? I want to compare it to what the Wii U will be going for. Thanks. Wink

I will be flipping 20 wii u on ebay. Should be a couple thousand in profit.
Let's assume $3000 in profit. That means $150 per unit. That means you buy it at $200 + $20 tax (10%) = $220. Cost to list on eBay at 10% for it and Paypal. So if you sell it at $400, you net $360-$220 = $140....


Not bad, I only resold one wii and that was my personal wii which I got by trading my xbox for it. I got $610 for the console and a 1GB SD memory card about 4 days before Christmas.... Listed it for $600, threw in the 1GB card for $10.... LMAO


My local walmart still has plenty of Wii-U's available for pre-order but I don't like selling on eBay so I think I will sit this out, or I might buy a few and list on Craigslist for a $50-$100 mark up and see if anyone bites after Walmart sells out...

Over the course of the 2 yrs or so they were hot, i averaged about $200 profit per unit selling on craigslist. Simple fact is,in all but 1 case the people I sold to were glad to pay my asking price.I think I sold between 8-10. Didn't get rich but did allow for some toys that wouldn't have been bought otherwise.

Or...
Every year its the same assholes piping up about how what they do isnt a complete dick move. How them buying 20 wiis, when many people can't even get one wasnt a completely asshole thing to do. Then they sell them for 300 and 400 percent profit. Them buying 100 of a price mistake cluing in the company to the mistake and ruining it for us all. We should all give these assholes a big fark YOU. But haters are going to hate apparently. and no amount of reasoning and logical discussion with these assholes will change their pea brains.

You have the same opportunities to buy as anyone else on this forum, so stop whining about people leaving you nothing. If you're looking for a handout move to a communist country.

Jeally much? I'm not a dick, have given plenty of time/cash to charity, Big Brothers, etc. I don't need to justify my actions to anyone, least of all you - ya big whiner (probably a liberal). I laugh at your assumption that the real reason why someone can't get a unit is because I or any reseller beat up an old lady or snatched one out of a kid's hands to get one. There are plenty of opportunities to get product XYZ. The plain & simple truth is someone is willing to put out the effort to get it, not you. Blame Nintendo for the supply issues.

Wow, are people really this dense? It really is simple. If one person buys ten of one item, that means there are less to go around for everyone else. It's that simple. Both of you seem to lack the ablility to comprehend the written word. No where did I say that I have been burned by asshole resellers. I also, never said anything about asshole resellers "ebating up old ladies or snatching one out of a kids hands". Although I wouldn't put that past either of you.

No, your logic is flawed because your linear pea brain can't comprehend that while me taking one unit off the shelves removes it from inventory, the whiners (you) can't seem to get their fat hairy ass out of bed at 2am to trot down to a big box store, be bothered to sign up for a list, call & bug every Game Stop in a 50 mile radius, etc. I'm not sure if anyone is even able to buy 10 at a time unless it is through Amazon or an online retailer. I'm pretty sure the B/M stores cap at 1 per person. Inventory is blown away minutes after the store is open. Hp Touchpads were a good example but the Wii U's are going to be that +1.
