    I'll be attending tonight, as well as picking up my deluxe edition at midnight. Theres a long line already, but I've secured my spot! They gave out wristbands to people who are going to be getting it at midnight. Black for those who dont have a preorder, and Blue and White striped for those who do. I've got some friends there with me, and I know some people from the Steetpass NYC group. I'll try to remember to take pics so i can share them with you guys later!

    Funny enough I know the first person in that line personally, he's been there for almost a month. I'm debating if I feel like going or not.

    There's one in Amsterdam too.
    Only the Press and Contest Winners are welcome there, so I'll be there, no matter what.

    @EMP Knightmare: WTF...a month? :blink:
    Erm...can you tell us how he managed to do that?
    (I'm getting the mental image of Sandy ravaging New York while he's refusing to leave his spot in front of the game store).


    Wait a second...the wiiU doesn't release in Europe for nearly 2 weeks from now. Are you saying the launch event is in 12 days there, or am I missing something here? :unsure:

    Yes, but the Event is on 22 November, so 1 week before Launch.
    'Normal' gamers are required to win a Contest, which ends in 2 days, and only 20 people will be chosen.
    But since I'm part of the Press, I'm invited to come there, without the need of taking part of the Contest.

    Saw the vid. But I was wondering if a Temper actually met him.

    Hey guys,

    I already have 2 deluxe versions preordered at Nintendo world. I'm not going to be in NYC until the 25th though. I should still be safe right?

    When I made the preorder back in September, they told me that as long as I have the deposit receipt, I'm safe and doesn't matter when I pick it up, but a lot could've changed since then.. You think they will keep their word?

    Any idea guys? I'm a bit worried to be honest.

    Wish Gamestop was having one, because I'd go. But other than that, other places are too damn hectic for me, I still remember how insane the last generation launches got here. People getting mugged all over the place, especially at Best Buy's and Walmart

    Neogaf members are reporting being able to easily find wiiUs (depending on the location). Might want to give a couple of WMarts a ring.

    Already paid mine off there, and not really in the mood for going out. Either way, judging by what I have seen on a few other sites, looks like the 8GB Models are easier to find, while the 32GB ones are flying off the shelves
