GameStop Giving Away Five Wii U Consoles Before Launch

Those of you that would like a Wii U before the console’s official launch on November 18th can do so by entering a competition courtesy of GameStop. To be eligible all you need to do is snap a photo showing them why you want a Wii U by using your arms, body, or friends, to create a U shape. You could be one of five lucky winners to get a Wii U party before launch day and a Wii U prize pack consisting of a Wii U, eight Wii U video games, four Wii Remote controllers, two Nunchuk controllers, a Wii U Pro Controller and an HD TV. You can enter the competition here.

Thanks, Simply G

      1. Wow. Why don’t you get some friends together and a “U” out of your wiiwiis? It’ll beat your usual sword fight, and it’s obvious you you have no real women in your life.

    1. Entries are randomly drawn anyways (and there’s a method without submitting a picture for whatever reason which still has equal chance of winnings among those who did submit) (and yes I read through the giant paragraph of rules)

      1. I’ve got 4 tattoos, but non on my ass. I have something already cooked up. I won’t be submitting it until a few days before the end to prevent copy-cats. ;-)

        Although the drawing is “random,” I’m counting on a company like gamestop cheating, and picking at least one great pic to draw attention to them. :p

      1. Yeah, I was thinking of entering and then selling the Wii U if I won (not for an insane price, maybe $380-$400). But then I thought the same as you that it would be better if someone who doesn’t have a pre-order won.

      Considering we have EB Game which is one of the subsidaries of Gamestop, as well as Gamestop, we should also be included in this competition

  3. I think its a bit unfair that I can’t enter this competition because I live in UK. I’m sat on my bed in hospital waiting to have another operation in the morning! How cool it would of been if I had entered and won one before the launch! Well all the best to those who can enter :@) Good Luck Everyone :@)
