Forgot to preorder it :P.

Anyways, I'll take one if I can find one any time. Looking forward to ZombiU, NSMBU, and maybe some other random game I can't think of as of now on launch day.

Kind of focusing on getting rid of my PC backlog before then.

I'll sell one mine for $650.;)

I don't mean to be an ass, but I hope noone is stupid enough to buy a system that retails for $300 for double that price +$50, I mean i want one really bad, but I'd much rather wait a month, than spend double what I can get it for if I just wait until January to March. I also find it really selfish(even if profitable) to take what could be someone else's Wii U, and sell it for double the price.

If people were buying kinects for $350 at launch, I'm sure I'll find some potential buyers.

That's the sad part, I'm sure you'll make a good profit, Xmas shoppers can be so desperate. I'll be waiting though, I won't pay more than 400 tips, but I think I'm just going to wait to buy one myself. Let us know if you et someone to pay 650 though.

Tried the tablet at the kiosk at the gamestop by my apartment. I wasn't a fan, but it looked cool I guess. Wanna try again

What did you not like about it? I want to use one that isnt tethered to a kiosk.

I hope your kidding, for someone who is a lvl 50, I'd hope you'd follow even the bare minimum of gaming news, of course you're probably just trolling.

Ya pretty much thats why they did not change the name. It a new controller and for some reason thats what the U stands for? They did the same thing more or less with the n64 expansion pack. Just a little change to an out of date system to keep on making money on it.

louisfoxton

No the wiiu should be able to do 480P/I. Early reviews of NG3 do show it to be weaker than PS3/360 but I think it will be able to do full lowdef/ standard def. We will need to wait to see if it can do anything else.

Yes, it will just have a lower resolution.

I'll be posting it in a bit, once I'm busy with a paper right now, and trying to keep up with Steam Chat, and go through EVE :P

It actually just sums up the Miiverse and internet browser functions from the last Nintendo Direct that focused on Miiverse. Nothing new

Yeah, other than what NSMBU specifically does with Mii-verse, it is pretty much a slightly more in depth look/demo at/of what we already know

I'll have to watch it later, but I was hoping for something new.
#224 Posted by xLittlekillx (1803 posts) -

I would probably get a Wii U if it was the kind of thing that I could just walk into a store and buy. It's sort of ridiculous that you have to be on a waiting list for something like this.

#225 Posted by ChubbyGuy40 (26100 posts) -

I really wanna play ZombiU :(

So let's talk about this. The latest video showed Bill Trinen staring at an orange the same way Iwata stared at a bunch of bananas near E3 earlier this year. What could they be hinting at? Another Yoshi Story?

Try Target and maybe Toysrus I don't think they really did much preorders, Target did reserve cards but they've never been that reliable on tracking how many of those they sell.

New ZombiU gameplay! Game looks amazing!

Here It Is!

RyanShazam

I'm sold on the game, and while the multiplayer looks pretty fun, it is just not even close to as enticing as the single player is.

#231 Posted by Meinhard1 (6766 posts) -
I'm excited for the Wii U but it it lacks the extreme novelty or the Twilight Princess that made me wait in line for 6 hours to get a Wii at launch. A Wii U deluxe with New Super Mario Bros U is over $400... I'll get one within the next 12 months for sure but not now.

Quick question: Is that NintendoLand Plazza thing the same as Playstation Home, just using the Mii's? (minus the part of having your on "home" in PS Home)

the way the player in that vid switches between gaming, internet, and tv is a very modern touch. It totally reminded me about how manically i approach my entertainment

It is similar in that its real people walking around with avatars. It doesn't have a broad focus like home does though. Nintendo land is a video game

Ah I see, so it's just a part of the NintendoLand game, not an app built into the system like Home. Well I don't see many people using it after the first year or so then :S I mean yeah, it's something that could be somewhat fun and entertaining while there aren't many games to play, but as more and more games release, just like Home, it will sort of get forgotten... Even more so when you have to play the "game" to access it. Should be an app IMO. Ah well, not that it matters though. It's one of those things that won't make or break anything :P
#241 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16744 posts) -
Crappy poll is crappy. No option for not getting it. I am not getting one because I already have a current gen console and don't need another one. I am waiting on the "real" next gen consoles to get here. I also don't like the controller and other than ZombiU, the games suck.
#242 Posted by Mario1331 (8815 posts) -
Tryin to order an extra one so i could get one at launch. Cant wait for it

#244 Posted by NAPK1NS (14870 posts) -
ZombiU is pretty neat. Besides that, I just don't think I have have a friend stop by and have them see me using that tablet thing. New tech usually tickles my interest just from that new product "high," but not a blip on the radar with this one. Enjoy all.

prices are going to skyrocket through the roof. Especially next weekend.

I already sold one for 800 on release day.

Well as an incentive to sell I offer one free game. So the customer will get the Deluxe edition Wii-U with a copy of probably NSMBU Someone on craigslist contacted me, The original sell price was 700 with a game. He offered me 100 extra dollars to hold on to it for it. So $800. I reserved two of them. I can essentially at this point get the Wii-U for free. Which I think I'm probably going to keep. Though I know how bad some early adopters can get screwed.

Thank you. I don't know if I should keep it. I'm just flip-flopping consistently :P Though I could make more money of some poor parents misery for a need of a wii-U :evil:
