All I can say about this is wow, I knew that there would be eager Nintendo fans out there wanting to obtain the Wii U, but the fact that the deluxe set (the more expense Wii U bundle) has gone sold old anywhere in just under 2 days is insane. This to me shows that there definitely is some genuine interest in Nintendo’s new home console and it also shows an early sign that Nintendo’s next console could sell absurdly well like with the Wii back in 2006. Obviously this is only at one gaming outlet and we still need to see how pre-orders fair at other retailers, but again I think this is a good early sign of the hype of the Wii U prior to its release in November.
In under two days, GameStop sold out its pre-order supply of the Wii U Deluxe Set, which costs $349.99, includes 32GB of internal storage, additional accessories and Nintendo Land. The Wii U Basic Set, which costs $299.99 and includes 8GB of internal storage, can still be pre-ordered from the video game retailer. Claim a Wii U Basic Set from GameStop here.
