Think I'll wait for a couple of months and get it for a tenner.


In the meantime, I'll be lapping up some that Nintendo goodness!

If it was as "sold out" as Reggie says it was then people would have been falling over themselves just to get a white basic model but they practically can't give those things away. If you haven't preordered a Wii U don't listen to the BS thats printed on sites like this, one site prints it and the rest just recycle it over and over, be persistent and if your willing to do a little travelling I suspect you'll find yourself a Wii U on launch day.

Good luck and good hunting.

Anyone have any idea why Zavvi are not sending out codes for cheaper games anymore for people who preordered?

I only got 2, Rayman legends i got for £20 and a code for just dance which i didn't bother with.. but it's been weeks now and we are supposed to get a code every week for a discounted game.. wtf Zavvi?

I saw that and thought stealth had become self aware and become a video game but its only available on PC so its not him.

Amazon delivered mine this morning, zombie u is pretty difficult (and thats on chicken setting). I can't use any apps at the moment because they all need the update(even playing wii games), which isn't up yet :(

Mine was delivered today, 2 days early. Can't say Nintendo Land is justified at £40, Mario Bros. is cool, but it's the same old as usual. Will get Zombie U when the dogs are barking at, will get it cheap used. But got a feeling new releases are going to dry up. Take away cross format games, can't see there being many exclusives.
