Toys "R" Us
That's excluding Amazon and Gamestop. I pre-ordered mine from K-Mart, where they had the Deluxe listed at $299.99 (at the time), and if they honor their pre-order prices as they say they do, I'll have successfully stuck it to the Man. I am currently taking bets as to whether this pans out in my favor or not.
I haven't posted my reaction to the Wii-U yet. Basically nothing bad to say.
I thought the price would be lower, but it's still relatively affordable. The release date was hinted at previously too, and it's good timing. The library is awesome so far. I know it attracts haters because of milkage/previously released games/"timed" exclusives, but there's a game for everybody. If not, you're picky. Bayonetta 2 is a wicked exclusive. The Nintendo TVii thing can be useful as well.
What's up with Amazon?

It looks like GameStop's preorders for the deluxe set have sold out nationally... And the standard set is slowly hitting that bottom, too.
It's the Wii's first days all over again.
God knows when Nintendo will get around to this, though it's clearly not on their immediate to-do list, considering they've barely mentioned the Virtual Console at all.

Best Buy has now sold out both sets, too.
Also, the Nintendo website has all the options to preorder, but all of them are "coming soon".

Wow, BB and GS are out of the 32 GB model, good thing I decided to wait on it as I need to find some source of income in the near future.

Smart people buy the games before the system comes out. Just buy up all the games that might go out of stock then wait for the others to get a price reduction then buy the system. Though regarding cases like the new Wii's that cant play game cube games are sorta sucky so strike while the iron is hot
I blame myself for allowing myself to be brainwashed by the coupon. ¬_¬;

Your abilities to shop effectively are so atrociously uncultured it makes me weep for the economy.

Furthermore, the point was made: in this day and age, the vast majority of games by major developers don't go out of print while the system for which they were developed is still on the market. There are exceptions to this, but I'm not even sure the game you're citing counts as one. Near as I can tell, the game you're citing is a 3DS port of a now-three-year-old DS title, based on a very niche Japanese property, the sort of game that wouldn't be given the biggest continuing production run under any circumstances. So no, games don't go "out of stalk" [sic] "all the time". On rarest occasions, maybe.
We could throw around "what if" and "I assume" and "but wait" all day. I get the sense Nintendo really isn't that worried about it, given their continued use and production of Wii controllers and given the number of people who still have them at this point in time. But with that said, the simple fact of the matter right now is that the GamePad plays no role in playing Wii content right now. Nintendo could address this in a software update a month from now. People could still be griping about it six years from now.
It's your abilities to shop effectively that are atrocious.
there are many reasons why people are homeless, not knowing how to stretch their money isn't one of them.
I didn't do my research on the game before buying it, that was my fault and I have learnt from it.
