GameStop stores across North America are no longer accepting Wii U pre-orders for any of the two models, as they are completely sold out, and the retailer’s president, Tony Bartel, says demand for Nintendo’s forthcoming console is overwhelming. GameStop PowerUp members can join The Wii U Wait List, which notifies them of when Wii U pre-orders will become available.
“Demand for Wii U has been off the charts. Customers will be notified when a Wii U is available for purchase and will have 48 hours to respond. There is no deposit required to join the wait list and enrolling does not guarantee a Wii U on or by a specified date or at a specific price.”
