There are brick and mortar stores all over the US that still have plenty of WiiU's in stock.

That's nice? I know best buy, sears, wal marts and targets all over California still have plenty of stock, considering how many tweets I get about people still walking in and purchasing them. Not to mention every time I've gone into the stores they've had them in stock.

It baffles me people believe anything Reggie says.

It baffles me that because you can find one in California you think you can find them everywhere else.

It baffles me that you think California could be the only place where one could still buy one.

It's just a soft launch guys not a big deal, all Nintendo has to do to break even is sell one game with the console (Nintendoland doesn't count).

But you can buy Nintendoland on it's own as an actual game.

I walked in to the toys r us here in long island city queens, and they had no less than ten wii u consoles in stock. I was even able to swap my basic for a deluxe. You can definitely find one in New York City if you look around.

Easy to find around me as well here in WNY, I don't really remember a recent console release not being sold out at every store. What kind of sales are they projecting?

Ever since the last system update the Wii U locks up every time my brothers start up Black Ops II. It doesn't on my account because I've set BO to launch directly into multiplayer. If I try to go to the campaign though it freezes up, haven't tried going to zombies, no scratches on the disc. The only other game I have, NSMB works fine still.

You guys think I should contact Nintendo support about this or will they just tell me it's Activision problem?

Sorry meant to say you have to buy the Deluxe.

Also ZombiU is a strong title I have lots of fun with it and I almost bought Madden just for the interactive playcalling gamepad.

I really can't wait for Colonial Marines to come out, the whole motion tracker on the gamepad thing is going to terrify me.

I gotta say I love the position of the right stick in the upper position compared to the buttons. Feels so much better to me than where it usually is like the 360 controller, my thumb works better straight up and done than sideways.

I was also worried about the sticks being convex instead of concave, but they're much better than they were on the nunchuck, haven't had a thumb slip off yet.

Got it all set up, now just need to wait for the kids to go to bed before I can try it out. DLed the patch (which took about an hour for me) and I transfered all my Wii data and VC games over. As someone who hasn't used a tablet ever, the gamepad looks to be pretty slick.
