    Wonder if it was the black or white ones. It'd be hilarious if they stole 7k of the unsellable white models.
    Oh, they'll sell regardless. Especially this time of year.

    Even this time of year, there are plenty of both available. Now if this were Wiis and it were 2007, it'd be a different story. Wii Us are barely selling for MSRP on eBay.

    Obviously MSRP for nothing is going to make them a profit, but eventually they'll start attracting suspicion if they sell them like that.

    Ah, it's different around here. They're still quite hard to find.

    There's no reason to do that. They stole them. Any price is a profit. Also add that no one is actually going buy them for more than retail cost when there isn't any type of shortage of them right now.

    You're getting streetpasses at a farmer's market. That's proof enough.

    That's cool. It's up now, anyway. Doesn't seem to have an option to change your cable provider for some reason, which is lame considering I'm about to switch.

    Depends on where you live, there is a shortage around here. They're quite hard to find. But no, I don't expect they'd be bought for a great deal more than retail.

    The Rayman Legends demo...oh so good; I missed out on something great by passing up on Origins. Still, due to cash issues, I'm going to buy the newer game. YouTube's back up on the browser. I'm going to check out Tvii now.

    Unless I'm missing it you can't watch tv on a non cable boxed tv like you can on the 360 which is sad. However I might be over looking it so it may be an option. Thought I heard it would act as another set top box

    Rayman Origins was great, but I traded it in with my PS3 and 3 other games for the Wii U (My PS3 came free with my Sony TV, so why not?). I've also got the demo for Rayman Legends and playing it really makes me want to get the full game when it comes out, but I'm trying to save the demo uses so I haven't played the demo in a while and it's killing me.

    Nintendo TVii isn't available here in Australia and it's really annoying having the TVii icon on the menu but it kicks me out of it if I try opening it... But for those of you Americans that do have it and use it, is it any good? I want to know if it's worth waiting for (If it comes out at all here.)

    Every region is apparently getting a different version of Nintendo TVii. Telling you about ours wouldn't really make sense.

    From what I've seen on the internet, I thought NA, Europe and Japan would be the only ones to have access to Nintendo TVii?

    You can't believe everything you see on the Internet. And there is a reason why we got ours first, ours got finished first.

    Yes you can, they can't put anything on the internet that isn't true. Also, I'm a French model.

    As for the Nintendo TVii update, how long did it take to download and install for everyone? Since I want to do it before Christmas when there should be a big strain on the servers.

    It's not an update. It's essentially a website that you can only visit from the Nintendo TVii button that wasn't active until the 20th.

    Well, my Rayman Legends demo just ran out of uses. When's the full version coming out again?

    Anyone know if they are getting any games for their WiiU's for Christmas? I might be getting Scribblenauts Unlimited.
