Wii U Selling Out Online
Following Nintendo’s long-awaited announcement on pricing and availability last week, most retailers opened up pre-orders, letting fans ensure they would get the system on Nov. 18. Within days, though, Best Buy , Toys R Us , Sears, Kmart and Target had stopped taking those pre-orders.
GameStop has sold out of its pre-order allotment of the higher-priced Deluxe Wii U, though the $299 Basic version is still in stock.
Even Wal-Mart hasn’t been able to keep up with demand. Both SKUs are sold out on a standalone basis-though it is still offering a store bundle (which includes a Wii U game and a Wii remote for an extra $50).
Promising start for Nintendo.
