Watch Out, Here Come the Wii U Vultures (Is Anyone NOT Sold Out of the Wii U?) | TIME.com: It looks like the Wii U may be sold out, my friends, which means it’s time to put on black and go into mourning.�Gnash your teeth. Wail. Shrug if you couldn’t care less. Or, of course, reach deep into your pockets and pull out wads of cash to pay that sordid segment of the secondary market more than happy to guarantee you a system on launch day for roughly 1000% markup.
I just checked GameStop — both the $300 Basic and $350 Deluxe models are sold out, and as I understand it, have been since late September, just after preorders began. Target lists both models�on its website�but not a button to preorder them. Kmart’s listing is basically the same as Target’s. And Toys ‘R’ Us says the Wii U will be available at launch, but to “check back soon to pre-order.”
