    Check walmart.com for walmarts, they are entirely sold out.
    Also, call any Gamestop, they'll all tell you that the Basic set is entirely out of stock as well.

    No news source for this, findings from myself (Why did my paycheck have to be late :( ). Visit the websites or call them if you don't believe me.
    As it stands 9/17/12:

    Gamestop: Deluxe Basic
    Walmart: Deluxe Basic
    Target: Deluxe Basic
    Best Buy: Deluxe Basic
    Sears: Deluxe Basic

    I don't think is really news. The other thread already mentioned the stores it was sold out at.


    But it does seem to be selling a lot. Hope it continues after launch (in the Western regions since sales in Japan are guaranteed with the trinity of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Dragon Quest 10 and Bayonetta 2).

    Considering stores likely get a bigger cut of the money when you buy the Deluxe version, why would they try to sell more of the Basic version?

    I call shenanigans. I pre-ordered the Deluxe Wii U today at my local Gamestop and they had maybe 10 left.

    Don`t know about these whole sold-out-stories... I remember there were news about Wii, which was said to be sold out in Europe as well at that time and I simply went to a local gameshop a day before launch and got one!

    So, don`t know about all this but I still won`t preorder.

    Personally I don't care about preorder sellouts - I'm not looking to get one at launch.

    When any of these titles come out, I'll take in some consideration :

    No more Heroes 3
    Beyond Good and Evil 2
    Burnout WiiU (whatever it will be called, if it comes that is)

    Maybe some others; those were on the top of the list in my head though.

    Or if it gets hacked. (I can't say no to homebrew on a console like the WiiU)

    Hi,

    Mine is located here in Milwaukee, WI. The other gamestop near me is sold out and so it Wall-mart, but the one Gamestop had some left.

    If they did, it would be called Bed, Bath, and Beyond Reason.

    This is full of a lot of BS. My local 3 gamestops didn't even start taking pre-orders yet. Can't be sold out if they never began the preordering process in the first place.

    There are tons of different Gamestop stores. Not every store would have run out. But most stores already have apparently.

    I got mine from best buy. It's a deluxe, and I will be willing to sell it to the right person for a ridiculous amount of money :yaywii:

    You paid $350 for it, add in some tax, some handling money, include interest, amount from scarcity, the fact it's a Wii U, ...

    I offer you $10
