Nintendo has released a video of the Wii U world launch at the Nintendo World Store in New York. There were a lot of people there, as was Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime, and his “body was ready”, as expected. And of course, the first person to get a Wii U was Travis “Triforce” Johnson, the Nintendo fanatic who is usually first in line to get a Nintendo console. He was the first person to get in line for the Wii U back in late October.

      That part really made me lol
      …probably more than it should

  • Tobbe

    Wish i could pick some up there.
    Here in Sweden we might have to wait until 10 dec cos Nintendo missed to pack/ship to Swedish importer Bergsala. Bergsala will ship to the stores that bought/book Wii U, and than to us players. But now some delay occured.
    Only a few will get Wii U in time. How can Nintendo Japan miss to ship/pack this to us. Most Shops in Sweden say 7 or 10 dec if u watch online. Bad, bad news. I might Fly to London and get mine if my local Gamestop wont deliver in time. I pre-order mine 1 month ago. Will be back with info for Swedish gamers. I have emailed Bergsala to confirm

      What are you talking about? I live in Sweden too and they have said that it’s coming November 30th

      • Tobbe

        Like i told. Only a few will get it in time. Go ask at gamestop and u will see. Look for example prisjakt, very few places say 121130. Trust me, my cousine is headboss in one gamestop store. I told him i like to change from basic to zombiu pack. Than he told me we wont get and until 10 dec, exept a very few. He didnt even knew if i whould get the basic. Just fact m8

          i live in sweden too and i ordered my wii u premium pack from it ships at the 30 november, but when i ordered it it cost around 3495 kr now they raised the price at 3790 kr so thats a bit greedy i think.

      • BLACK OPS 2?

        • BLACK OPS 2?

    • Allan

      First shipment probably got less units than expected, My preorder didn’t make the 30th nov launch and i preorder quite early 22/9 at .

      Got email telling me they didn’t get enough units for the launch.

      • Tobbe

        yes something like that. Was something that they forgot/missed to pack them up so all we whould get em or what gamestop told me.
        Gamestop also told me Bergsala has f:;ked something up to. Hope Bergsala will answer to my email

        • Tobbe

          Just got some good news from Gamestop. All who will order within this week will get there consoles. Bergsala got a new shipping today
