If I get the Deluxe preordered at WalMart, I'll also have a regular preordered at gamestop. All this talk about flipping is making it very appealing.

I dont think the regular edition is as valuable though. Good luck getting a Deluxe.

Jon says:
Only reason I am bothering picking up the Deluxe (I could care less about the promo, game, and memory) is that I'm paying $20 less (due to shipping) for the white. The black color alone is worth $20+ to me. If I was to keep both (which I doubt I will. I'm too lazy to flip and don't hold people who do in the best of lights) I will be more likely to either gift it to my brother, sell it to a friend/family for retail price, or sell it online for much much less than people looking for $600-$700.

Thats cool. I agree. I d pay more for the black color alone. Getting a bigger hard drive is just icing.

A little update...i got off the phone with a walmart electronics have to go to the layaway counter to get this pre-order not the electronics department...the only thing that sucks is you have to wait for the layaway department to open which from what they said is around 9am.. might be different at other might be able to do layaway at the specific department but i guess it will all depend on how the walmart is set up

I just tried calling my walmart to see if we go to layaway or electronics ... and they told me they aren't doing any preorders ...

You're in the Bay Area, right? Me too. Are you heading to a Walmart at midnight? I didn't even know there were any open 24 hours.

EDIT: Ah, I think I misunderstood. So if you have to see the layaway people in the morning, there's no point in going at midnight.

the one in richmond, american canyon, and fairfield are all 24hr...the most info i got was from the fairfield walmart...manager there gave me the info that i posted it looks like a midnight run is out of the question, for me atleast...they are bridge toll too far for me to get turned away at midnight then turn around and deal with it at 9am

Finger says:
I live 5 minutes away from the one in Richmond and had no idea they were open 24 hours. Weird.

Anyway, good luck tomorrow. Let us know how it goes.

I went to walmart this morning a little before 9am hoping that there wouldn't be a long line of people waiting to preorder the wii u. But I was wrong there was no one there and I told the associate about the preorder deal, and he did not know anything about it. So he called management over and she checked it out on the computer, and 5 minutes later she bought out the preorder paper. Its a piece of paper with a picture of the wii u deluxe edition of course and a bar code and the employee has to scan that bar code then you are good to go. Also you can pay off the whole layaway but you will have to keep 1 cent on the layaway for tracking purposes.

Just got back from a nearby Walmart. I ordered two WiiU consoles.

Showed up just before 9 a.m. and there was one other guy there. The layaway folk (I hope you're sitting down) didn't seem to know what they were doing but finally figured it out. The whole transaction took about 20 minutes because they had to find the barcode and figure out what their stock would be, but relative to other experiences I've seen, this was fairly painless.

My Wal-Mart knew about the "preorder" layaway deal long before thanks to your truly. By 10am I was the 7th preorder. The person behind me didn't even know and preordered one too along with his kid's bed.

People preorder beds?

As much as I'm dying to have the Wii U, I'm exercising my self-control and waiting until Nintendo backs it up with a legitimate library.

The guy in front of me was the first one of the day. He wanted to order 10 consoles (obvious flipper, and I was ripsh** as she said they only had 10 until the manager was called over and said 2 max per person). He ordered 2 and his wife ordered 2. Placed my order, but I'm a bit curious as to the wording on the receipt. Perhaps some of you have the same wording and can explain? First time with a lawaway for me...

It says, and she even wrote at the top, "Pick up/pay off on (or before) Dec 14."

Is that my pick up date or will I be able to stand in line and get a console at launch?

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 14, 2012, 10:32:55 AM PDT
that's the latest date you have to pick it up before they sell it to someone else.

Jon pre-ordered layaway here too. You can pick it up at 12:01 AM 11-18 at the Layaway counter. It was confirmed by the layaway person and then the Manager. You can keep paying on it till December 14th though if you don't have all the funds and they will hold it until then. I paid mine off except 1cent as policy says you must have a remaining balance.

Misfit says:
Yeah, but I am not too comfortable having been screwed by Gamestop on other major releases that were pre-ordered online. Also, no shipping fee's as this will be in store pickup and I believe most online pre-orders had to be shipped.

I preordered a basic online at GameStop. No thanks to paying the same price for the deluxe and getting in 2 days later.
