Wii U Pre Orders Stop In US


After facing higher then anticipated demand, US retailer GameStop has officially stopped taking pre orders for the Wii U. UK retailers Argo and GAME are still advertising Wii U in stock and are still taking pre orders on the system. Nintendo has managed to give off the impression that the Wii U is already in high demand but the real truth to that will come out when the system launches. Nintendo needs to maintain a steady stream of consoles on retail shelves but also give off the impression that the system sells fast without depriving the buyer of a chance to own one. If Nintendo cannot maintain an adequate supply of Wii U’s then potential buyers may be swayed into buying a competing console. Lets hope that production is well underway for the holiday season.
