Seeing these go for as high as $500 on eBay, just to buy someone ELSE'S pre-order.
The sheep are out in force this year. Baaaah. :D
$500 is that it?
damn I'm gonna hold on to mine for a couple weeks

I'm not going less than $600-650 for an 8gb
He who tries will be wasted

To save on battery, or if you're just setting it down to go do something else for a bit. I've left my PS3 controller and game on for 30 minutes here and there when a phone rings or I want to go grab something to eat or whatever.



You want to unplug your tv to charge your tablet controller? :eek:

You will most likely find yourself charging the controller while playing because the battery life is so short. In fact, Nintendo acknowledged this reality by making the cord super long. They expect that you'll be playing it while it's charging at least some of the time.

Um. Why not take everything else out and just keep your tv in and plug the damn remote into the wall and charge? I can understand what you mean though. But 3 hours of straight gameplay is a lot right now.


But when a game is very good it is kinda hard to just stop playing. But I think a lot of first party games will have two options on how to play. Allowing you to use the classic controller or whatever it is called.

Sorry, this could be a stupid question, but did you get that call saying that based on this batch of preorders? Or did you preorder awhile ago. Reason being is I just managed to get a preorder now (Thanks OP!) but if I get a call saying I can pick it up Sunday ill be pumped!

I pre-ordered on Monday, the item shipped yesterday.

I doubt that an order now would get to the store by Sunday, but who knows?

I preordered the first day they were available, and now they call me to say it won't come until Dec. 5 or later.

BTW, for those concerned about plugs, you can always use a 2.5" external hdd, powered via usb. I've had one connected to my wii for a couple of years with no problems.

This...
I'm pretty sure we all have most of the wiiU launch titles on other systems and those we do not have will be the ones that work with the (tv) screen to not have to play on the tv.... i think Im most excited about this feature. too bad wii games don't work this way, although they did mention they would look into it....

At least u got a call. I didn't even know until I saw it in rdf and call them. Source u FAIL. The only way to ever buy anything from them is give us a discount or a GC for the future

When I try to order at thesource.ca it doesn't allow me for in-store pickup...is there a way to have it shipped to a store near me so I can physically go in on Sunday to grab it? I don't trust them shipping it in case it gets delayed.
