    Ok, so I pre-ordered a Premium Wii U with Nintendo Land a few months ago at work. I was top of the list.
    And now work have told me we won't be getting many in, and if we only get a few they'll be selling it to a customer instead... I thought about it afterward and thought it's not really fair is it?

    I still pre-ordered like everyone else and therefore expect to get it on the day. Surely first come first serve on the list. I've been looking forward to it for over 1 years and I'm a massive Nintendo fan.

    I dunno, maybe all gaming stores do this with their employees. I understand it's not good to have all available stock pre-ordered and none to sell on the day, but that shouldn't be my problem?!
    Do you think it's fair?

    Just ask a friend to go buy your Wii U, and then he gives it to you.

    I would be pissed if I preordered and didn't get one, while someone who didn't pre order just walks in and buys one.

    I guess that's true. but I'm technically a customer and the first to pre-order. I just wish they told me beforehand, otherwise I would have just pre-ordered it elsewhere.

    Yeah it does kinda suck, seeing as I thought I was certain on getting one. Guess you don't have the same rights.
    Haha, yeah part of me is just thinking of a family member buying it instead. I didn't get it to save money or to sell on either, just thought mays well pre-order here.

    If you're paying for it, you're a customer. The store will still make the same amount of money if it goes to you. There's no reason you shouldn't get one.

    Yeah I thought so too right?!
    Maybe it's because I get discount? but I don't really care about that. Just a bit gutted they didn't tell me this when I pre-ordered! >___<
    Oh well, here's hoping there are enough on the day, as I really am last on the pre-order list now - Underdog.
