Exactly. I pre-ordered my Wii U and NSMBU at Bestbuy because of that. My area has Blue Laws for non essential stores to give residents a break from the traffic my county has to deal with the other 6 days a week (Bergen County is a mall mecca and bad traffic on weekends and weeknights) but still figure Monday morning can pick it up and get it back and set up before Amazon would be able to deliver (Plus when perordered didn't want to risk the slight chance of delivery delay when I ordered... and good thing because now that chance is much higher thanks to Sandy side effects). And actaully becaue of Hurrican Sandy I may be able go get Wii U Sunday after all. Chris Christie has suspended the Blue Laws temporarilly because of the craziness in NJ... so if that holds till Sunday will be able to pick it up on rlease after all. I'm ordering the other games and the pro controller from Amazon though.
Gamestop was able to ship my system today so it will arrive monday, why can't amazon do that? This kinda bugs me but the few days difference won't kill me. Also It will give me some time to try out nintendo land before diving into ZombiU.
