    After that email went out, my guess would be Toys R Us ;-)

    Trying to recreate the Wii euphoria with the Wii U might backfire on Nintendo if Sony and Microsoft announce their up and coming consoles early. Obviously if the non-gaming casual market want the Wii U then whatever the power under the hood of the rival consoles will be irrelevant.

    Nintendo know by pre-order interest that the forecasted 5.5 million Wii U unit sales by March 2013 will be surpassed; Foxconn has the facilities to produce 1.8 million Wii U units per month; are Nintendo holding back on production to make the Wii U more desirable?

    If my pre-order is not honoured and I fail to pick up a Wii U at launch; Nintendo can go and fuck off.

    I've just noticed i'm massively into my overdraft at the moment. I'm still waiting on a tax refund, but it's going to be close. I really don't want to have to cancel my pre-order. :(

    Surely your financial situation is more important than worrying about a Wii U at launch...?

    It's not like you shall never get the opportunity to buy it afterwards!

    Be sensible ... : )

    Damn right. The answer's obvious - stop eating until the Wii U release.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I've eaten, drank and slept Wii U since it was revealed.

    Is Amazon America still refusing to stock the Wii U because of their spat with Nintendo?

    @rock27gr

    The rumour goes, that shortly after the 3DS launched, Amazon weren't happy with how many units were shifting and were sitting on a fairly huge stickpile. They went to Nintendo asking for a bigger wholesale discount that was in line with other big chains like walmart.
    This was flat-out rejected by Nintendo, so they asked to sell the consoles at a discount (before price cut) this again was denied.

    Anyway, it got allegedly got more complicated after that, with Amazon no longer stocking 3DS consoles straight from Nintendo.

    More on it here

    Which launch titles have folks pre-ordered?

    So far I'm relatively settled on:
    NintendoLand (pack-in)
    NSMB Wii-U (it'll be standard, but the Mrs will play it)
    The Wonderful 101 (to give me something deep to play day one)

    I keep thinking about Sonic Racing however (mainly because it's cheap, but also because I love games with Easter Eggs/Unlockables and I reckon it'll have a fair few), and also Scribblenauts.

    I got Nland as the pack in, and NSMBu ordered. I'm waiting for Zombie u Reviews.

    Didn't know 101 is a luanch title. if it is i'm in!

    It's certainly listed as such on ShopTo, if it isn't then I've definitely got space in the budget for another game. Could well be Sonic Racing then.

    I'd also like to get AC3, but it's so damn expensive everywhere. 50? No thanks.

    EDIT: Looks like W101 isn't a launch title. Damn, it already seemed pretty polished at the Expo.

    Wonderful 101 is definitely not a launch game.

    I've got the Wii U preordered but I'm still not sure I'll buy it. Tempting to put on eBay and double my money though! No news has come out in the last few weeks that has impressed me really. With the other new consoles due to come out soon it's a tough decision .

    I'm going to leave it as late as possible to cancel. If I have to, at least I know i've still got a few old Wii games that I need to finish off.

    Well, I've got ZombiU in my bundle; I have a pre-order for Rayman Legends, but that's no longer a launch game; would really like Nintendo Land, but not paying full RRP for it. Out of the rest of the launch games, I think the only thing left of interest (or not already played elsewhere) is "TANK! TANK! TANK!", because of how insane it looks.

    Just NSMB and ZombiU.

    Edit: 101 was well but that's not launch.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Only got to play Rayman on the wiiu at Nintendo world the other week, but 2 player was really innovative and great fun! I've added it to my preorders! Shame it's not out, the demo looked like finished code, it was super smooth. Guess having to compete with NSMB was too much of a risk.

    The tank game looks awesome! Like a refined version of EDF!

    I think we can expect a F ZERO game for the wii u. I think in a way Nintendoland is going to be used as a taster for the 'casuals' to try out there counter parts.. oh f zero is out, i like the nintendo land game of that, shall buy that.

    It seems Nland is coming together nicely, the IGN/gamespot hands on is rather positive, its seems to be deeper and full of stuff than most mini game collections. It may take some doing to persuade the straight of the bat naysayers, but i'm quietly looking forward to this.
