GameStop Says Wii U Software Pre-Orders Are More Than Double Those Of Wii’s

GameStop says it has received 1.2 million pre-orders on Wii U software, which is more than double of the pre-orders of Wii launch titles, in 2006, from the video game retailer. This relatively means that consumers are pre-ordering 2.4 Wii U games per console.

      1. Because you could sell that second deluxe on ebay for more than double what you paid for it? Is what I would have done if I had the money for a second one.

    1. Thank you, gypsy. We all were waiting for your predection. Thanks. We are all definitely follow you on Twitter for that.

  1. does anyone have any idea for a nintendo video game i can get in america that isnt nintendo power, i had a subscription with them but they are ceasing production so i need a new magazine.

  3. I am so pissed gamestop did not have s midnight release. I have to wait til 11am to get my WiiU.
    Mother fucking greedy bastards didn’t want to pay to have their store staffed? Safty issues? Bullshit. Wii=Midnight release. 3DS=Midnight release. I’m not pre-ordering at gamestop again. My Best Buy is having a Midnight release.

    I’m so impatient!!

      Seriously, they could have trouble with the law. If the queues blocked access to another store, the sidewalk or the road, they could be faced with a huge fine. Add to this that no one wants to work in the middle of the night on a Sunday and you’ve got an understaffed overcrowded store. Best Buy is a huge 24 hour store, hence why midnight launches are rarely a problem.

  4. WOW. I din’t think it would be this popular this quickly! I AM SO HAPPY. Even if I still don’t have a Wii U preordered…. I WILL GET ONE. JUST YOU WATCH.

  5. Does anybody know if blockbuster having midnight release? Have feeling zombie U not gonna live up to the hype. Anybody else? I think it will get like 6.5 from ign. Thinking about getting FIFA, Sonic Racing, COD, Zombie U (if at least an 8). Will wait for review on zombie U. Other already reviewed and got good scores.

      Official Nintendo Magazine sound very promising on teh subject of ZombiU. There’s an empty spot of a “best launch game” so I’m expecting it to be huge.

    2. Just to let you know,you shouldn’t be relying on reviews.You should be getting the game for your own personal interest.

  6. I’m getting mine (basic) on Monday. More convenient, and I’m not opening it until Christmas (for various reasons) anyway…

  7. For the guy who said if anybody knows a new nintendo magazine in the US theres is a new Magazine that just started last month it is called PureNintendo Magazine it pretty decent but is bi-monthly.If you want to check it yourself go to

  9. The 2 year long wait since E3 2011 for the Wii U comes to an end tomorrow!!! Nintendo reclaims its title as king of gaming beginning tomorrow.

  10. Don’t crown Nintendo king yet. System hasn’t even come out yet. Celebrate at the end of the game. Not in the middle of a close one with plenty of time to go. Best luck to Nintendo, I hope it does well. I still hate the name. Ill call it the “Nintendo 4XL on Roids”

  11. I believe it I preordered 9 WII U games myself I preordered mass effect 3 but with all the technical issues I keep reading about I think I’ll put the money on another game till they can figure out what the issue is that is causing the technical issues. Too bad cuz it really sounds like one helluva good game to play

  12. I haven’t preordered any games because there were no reviews up yet, so there was no way to know which ones are good. I’m getting Nintendo Land as a pack in, and I’m sure I’ll buy the new Mario Bros. in the store.

  13. My feeling is the Zombie U will probably turn out as good as Red Steel… and be a very middle of the road sort of launch game.

  14. It’s true for me, definitely. I’ve preordered eight games for Wii U (Nintendo Land [in the bundle], New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, Assassin’s Creed III, Skylander’s Giants, Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper, Bayonetta 2 and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge) but only 4 games for Wii (Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Trauma Center: Second Opinion, and Wii Sports).
