Just talked with my local gme store manager. He said that they just received the Wii U display. I asked him why they were not displaying it and he said they were told not to set up until next week because they can not take pre orders until than.
Over 18 million power up pro reward members. Larger market share since last console cycle. Pre ordering a console, first time this has happened for consoles. Wii U backwards compatible, used Wii games will be able to be sold along with the Wii U. Nintendo finally embracing the 3rd party look at the launch line up. The next console launch will be successful and more importantly efficient if pre orders are being taken.
You don't increase your work force by over 18% if you are not sure in your business model and the future of your business model. Looks like ppl are buying used aapl devices with those fat margins.
