Gamers Hang On! There is Still Hope for Pre-Ordering the Wii U Deluxe Console

Last week, Glacier928 reported that Walmart was kicking off their pre-orders for the Wii U Deluxe Console. Today, Nintendo announced that Wii U pre-orders at GameStop are officially sold out across North America. In response, GameStop Corporation has decided to create a “waiting list” for those hoping to pre-order the system when it becomes available again. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stated this week that more than 250,000 gamers have put their names on GameStop’s waitlist for the Wii U Deluxe Console. As most already know, there will be two SKU models available at launch in North America on November 18. There’s the $300 8GB basic model, and a $350 32GB deluxe model that comes in black and includes a copy of Nintendo Land. According to Iwata, the deluxe set is selling more preorders than the base model by a wide margin.

However, there is still hope and most gamers should pay attention to this right now. Across the country, Sears will be offering pre-orders for both the basic and deluxe models of the Wii U. This deal is only valid in stores and not online. Additionally, K-Mart is planning on offering pre-orders within the next two weeks according to an employee I spoke with today. Below are the links to K-Mart’s and Sears’ page where you can give your e-mail or cell phone number to receive a text alert of when it becomes available at K-Mart. Now that’s instant gratification!

Wii U Console Set for Release on November 18th?

If you check out the Wii U section of GameStop’s website, you’ll notice a few things. First off, most of the games have an absolutely absurd asking price of $99.99. Secondly, most titles have a tentative release date of 12/31/12, meaning that they have no “official” release date declared yet. However, if you notice two of the titles, “Rise of the Guardians: The Video Game” and “Ben 10 Omniverse: The Video Game”, they both have a release date of 11/13/12 . Also, notice that the game’s prices are $39.99 as opposed to the ridiculous theory of $99.99.

Now, Nintendo tends to allow third-party titles to release roughly one week prior to their console’s release. They’ve done it with the Nintendo GameCube, Wii and 3DS, just to name a few examples. However, it should also be known that Nintendo always releases their games and consoles on Sundays. Seeing as how they’ve kept this trend for years, it wouldn’t be farfetched to believe that they’d release the console on the Sunday after third-party games release. Seeing as how November 18th is the Sunday after November 13th, it’s fair to assume that the Wii U is set for launch then. Couple in the fact that the console is supposed to release prior to “Black Friday” and the validity become a bit stronger.

Now, this is to be taken with a grain of salt as nothing mentioned here is officially stated by Nintendo. However, pieces of the puzzle are starting to fit together and it’s becoming more and more exciting to see this console approach its release. Earlier, we showcased some of the box arts for Wii U titles and appreciate the nod Nintendo gave to the GameCube by utilizing a similar layout design.

What do you guys think? Sound like a plausible theory? Sound off in the comments below!

GameFly Video Ad Pokes Fun at GameStop

There’s no denying that Gamestop loves to rip you off when it comes to trading your games back in. They give you absolute crap for your money/credit back. You buy a brand new game the week it comes out at full price and immediately, it’s only worth a quarter of what you paid. Make sense? Not quite.

The best alternate to avoiding getting ripped off is to test out GameFly and honestly, their latest advertisement takes a legitimate stab at GameStop’s laughable trade-in policy. It’s a very clever and humorous advertisement. Check it out!
