GenGame writer Ben Lamoreux, who claims he has good relations with GameStop management, ‘confirms’ that the recently spotted Wii U marketing materials are made by Nintendo. Lamoreux is confident that official Nintendo-made advertisements will go on display throughout all GameStop stores beginning August 13th. Lamoreux is also told that consumers may be able to pre-order the Wii U on the same day or “shortly after.”
That would make my week!
Do I smell a Nintendo Direct?
i think thats a yes!
thanks i have a new wallpaper
PLEASE i want a nintendo direct for Wii U. I been waiting PACIENTLY till E3 but they didnt tell us what we wanted to know :( too much hype -_-
I am Ready to Preorder!!!! =D Anyone Else?
My Wallet is locked and loaded.. Lets do this!
i have $700 available for this, im so ready!!!
I have $600 for this!! Yay Can’t wait =]
I have to sell my car for this………. =[
Aw man! I only got $210 for this. Im saving till december and
hopefully i get it by december (with a game)
I’m gonna sell my wii and ps2 so I can get this. And possibly a few 3ds games.
That depends, will wii get a black wii U at launch?
I’m planning on pre-ordering the black Wii U as well. Black console, black Game Pad… they both smell like a winning combination.
I’ll have $900 by November, so you get those money safes ready Nintendo.
Tell us what the console can do first.
and produce hookers
It brings love!!!!!
It makes me want to go to Microsoft headquarters and beat Bill Gates to death with the gamepad
I love how nobody said play games yet. The Wii U can also play games.
Either way Nintendo will take my money.
My wallet is more than ready to be emptied out.
I kept throwing money at my computer at E3 but nothing happened, so this is pretty damn good news, I’m ready to throw my money at nintendo already
I did the same thing but my computer took my money and ran……
DAT HDMI PORT :O
price is what i need to know, Launch Games, and a release date!!
so looking forward to this only wish Bethesta would port skyrim!
but it aint gonna happen =c
Hopefully the next Elder Scrolls is on Wii U. I bought an Xbox 360 just for that game alone. It is that good.
Can’t wait for the overclocked 360! But oh wait batman and mass effect 3? Aren’t they OLD games?
You know next to nothing about it and call it an overclocked 360. Alright then, your loss.
Big Batman Fan Here (and no, not coz of the damned movies!! lol)
so what if its an ”old” game?
it kicked ass back then and im Sure as F that its gonna be even better on wii u.
so fuck it!
Oh no! two “old” games. Why would they make these? Well how about to show off the potential of the system in games people are familiar with. Ever thought about that?
Its better than getting a launch of N64/gamecube/xbox ports 360 launch line up.
Not even one year old games with added features and enhanced gameplay? Yes. If it were mass effect 2, then there would be an issue.
They release game of the year editions. Whats so different?
Zero. Amd in fact, these editions are not only imporved in terms of contemt, and new features, they also look better (refer to the ps3/wiiu screenshot comparisons). Hes just an idiot
Yeah, and along with Ninja Gaiden, those 3 are the only ports, out of, what, 37 games?
>Implies Wii U’s launch games consists of games seen on other consoles awhile ago
>Implies Assassin’s Creed III is an old game
>Assassin’s Creed III Isn’t out until October 2012
You are going to be so bored and miss us so much when we leave you hear, and begin talking and playing with each other on our WiiU’s.
“playing with each other”
Not the best choice of words ;)
I just now got to playing Batman: Arkham Asylum. I am pumped for Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition. Just because it’s old doesn’t mean everyone’s played it. As for Mass Effect 3, I don’t give a crap about that game.
It’s the system destined to get the next iteration of Smash Bros and Zelda.
Those two alone are reason enough to nab it, for me, but the addition of third-party AAA titles both at launch and in the future is just icing on the cake.
Do I put my money towards a pre order or my wife’s birthday present? Decisions, decisions….
I’d Go for the Wifey Present. =)
No Girls = No Life..
Happy Bday to Your Wife!!
Forget that, buy the Wii U.
Treat your Wife first
then Wii U
buy ur wife a wii u as a present XD
Lol, Women do love Wii
Or, buy her a WiiU.
Get your wife the preorder!
Haha pre-order receipt xD
Seeing as she’s someone who you love, or at least should love, she should come first. But, however, if she likes playing video games, then get here a Wii-U for her and yourself.
I think you should get your wife a Wii U for her Bday present!! :D then you both win!
So it has begun…
Light the Torches!!!
Wii U can be a great console. We just need to see more 3rd party support, and I’m not seeing that aside from DS2 (somewhat late port), AC3, ME3 (late port), BAC:AE (late port), RL, and ZombiU. Hopefully there are still secrets.
Forgot to mention A:CM, NG3:RE (late port), TTT2, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and a few other quality 3rd party titles.
In terms of “ports”, theres only really 3, Mass Effect, Ninja Gaiden and Batman. Everything else was in developed along side the wiiu dev kit, a couple just have later release dates, but, thats bound to happen
Unleash xD does that mean the price is being revealed too? 0.o
definitely, i think the System price will come sooner than expected.
GameStop is already promoting the Wii U by August 16th
Would be a safe bet. If its out by the end of October, it would give people at the very least 2 months to save up.
Although i dont expect sales to really boom until Christmas, during the shopping days. And then again in Easter
And when actual NEXT GEN games are released on the U
Yeah, but i havent seen them, so i dont care about them. And by Easter, Dead Space 3 wouldve only just been released. What you consider “next gen” wouldnt be close, although the games would look better on the WiiU (same thing happened with the 360)
DE 3 Wii U???
that shit would sell!!!
Give Me Nintendo!!!!
You mean DS3?
Its not comingto WiiU, that weknowof,iwas just isingit as an examplethat by then,what posers consider next gen, wouldnt of arrived, and the games wouldbebetter looking onWiiU
Unfortunately, that’s not happening. EA ain’t doing that, though I wonder why they gave the go for ME3 when that came much earlier.
I just noticed your username xD
I preordered way back in may in uk GAME. Talk about slow :p
I didnt know they were taking pre-orders? Is it one of the deposit ones though?
Deposit they tweeted about this. Check the site
Ohright. I might do that on thursday (pay day). GAME are great when it comes to delivery. And the prices arent too shabby either
Yep that is why they went bankrupt :P but saved at the last minute by the guys who own comet etc
/sarcasm :P\\Game are still ripping people off. They clearly never learnt.
In germany you can pre order a wii u at the gamestop for 399.99€
A little bit misrepresented-
1) Ben LAMOREUX.
2) The manager is saying that the adverts are scheduled to go up Aug 13.
3) The manager can’t confirm that Wii U pre-orders will be taken, but thinks it’s “likely” – perhaps given previous Nintendo-related promotions?
Sad to say I have no money to pre order but I hope Nintendo knows I’ve loved every system they’ve had and I’m extremely excited for Wii U I can’t wait to see all these good ol games on this system plus Mario, Link, Kirby, Samus and all the good ol Nintendo characters in 1080p it’s just gonna be so amazing I can’t wait for this system :D
Does it mean they’ll have a price set for the Wii U when they’ll take pre-orders?
Awesome! Hopefully Amazon receives Preorders.
This is really good news, but I don’t have nearly enough money saved up, damnit. I’m really hoping to buy this before Christmas. Can’t wait to get a confirmation on price and what will come with the system. If not Nintendo Land, I hope they at least pack in a Wii Remote + and nunchuk. Leave luck to heaven.
They need to do another nintendo direct.
They definitely will. I think the one for America’s launch should be hosted by Reggie. I wouldn’t mind Iwata, though. He handled the Pre E3 ND very well.
I’d prefer if Reggie did it since I find him easier to listen to
Yes, his voice is very soothing. And you can tell he believes in his product.
I hope they do another nintendo direct.
I have a sneaky feeling that will happen before the Toyko show that Nintendo takes part in.
It also has a Ethernet port instead of buying an adapter :O
Nintendo, shut up and take my money!
Jeez, I’m having flashbacks to how long the line to get a Wii was. Even with a pre-order. Ugh.
Don’t get ur hopes up Nintendo said wiiu price and colors will be told this autumn and release date but still in fucking excited
