For those that didn’t already know, tonight at midnight Nintendo releases their next console. The Wii U is completely sold out everywhere that offered pre-order options and anywhere you look online it is listed as sold out. There are tons of brave souls that are probably already setting up camp at stores all across the country at stores that are simply selling them as a first come first serve basis. Of course you can also always buy them from a 3rd party seller that will more than likely jack up the price a couple extra hundred dollars. I personally am just going to wait (maybe even until the price drops), even though it kills me a little bit to not be able to play a new Mario game. For the first time since the N64 released I won’t be getting a Nintendo console on launch day (sad face). Nintendo is offering two models, the white 8gb model for $299.99 and the black deluxe 32gb model for $349.99. Both models come with a gamepad, HDMI cable, sensor bar, and 2AC adapters (for both the console and gamepad). The deluxe model also throws in a Nintendoland game disk, gamepad cradle and a gamepad stand and console stand.
Let us know in the comments section if you are picking one up tonight, waiting till either a price drop or resupply or if you just simply have no desire to pick up a Wii U.
