The fact that he said he bought a *basic* Wii U wasn't the give-away? ;)

OP is likely a troll. Walmarts in the Chattanooga area have Wii U's in stock.

good, I hope they have to eat the system they thought they could get a profit from, serves them right for hoarding them from despaerate people who are wanting to buy one for retail price.

Play more games dude. There are a ton of them. I did more than 30 hours in my first week. I'm probably at at least 1000 Wii hours.

Why didn't you just wait until the next shipment? Christmas is a month away. Another million Wii U will be in stores by then.

They're really not selling as well as I had thought. On eBay, the Deluxe is going for less than $500. After you take away eBay and PayPal's cut, Not exactly much of a profit for those trying to sell one.

I plugged it up last night and the guy that sold it to me was nice enough to install the new firmware for me. That alone was worth his asking price. Now my kids don't have to wait around on christmas day waiting for the dumb thing to work.

Are people still treating this like he was serious? Or am I just missing some very subtle humor?

You can buy the basic edition from three different online retailers for $300. So to answer your question, yes.

i live in Playstation Land, so actually, Wii U's can be found everywhere, even the deluxe bundle, while Psas and LBPK are still on backorder.

$800 for a basic Wii U with no games with it? yes you are. should of waited till stores restocked on them and buy one for only $300, then you would of had $500 to buy games with.

Yeah. I mean, heck I was just in Best Buy and I saw this moldy old box covered with mushrooms and I asked the clerk what is was and he got this really disgusted look on his face and said "blech a Wii U!" and he took it off the shelf and stepped on it until it broke.

JT my man, why stop at just one? I heard if you just paint a big "U" on a regular Wii and tape a couple gameboys together that nobody can tell the difference.

You better be kidding. My kid would get coal before I spent $800 on any sort of Wii.

Except you're kidding and I'm not :(
