Wii U is Sold Out, Should you Worry for the Holidays?

The Wii U is apparently in high demand if you look at the sold out signs everywhere. Is Nintendo keeping the initial inventory low to create a shortage? I guess there is some of that. Nintendo needs to see how high the demand really is to adjust production levels.

The Wii U seems to be priced right ($299.99 and $349.99) and Nintendo fans are buying into the new gaming paradigm. The Nintendo 3DS was not priced right initially. Looks like Nintendo learned something. What I actually like most about the Wii U is the TVii service. The unified user interface to cable TV and other sources like Netflix is really well done and adds real value.

If you have not pre-ordered a Wii U you should not get nervous yet. I am pretty sure that Nintendo will get more inventory after the Wii U release on November 18. Right now the pre-order inventory is completely sold out across the nation and online. The last available Wii U in stock was detected on October 1st by Zoolert.

On Amazon and eBay the prices of the Wii U offers are already double of the suggested retail price. I recommend not to take these offers and wait. By early December there should be new Wii U stock. What you will not see are Wii U Black Friday 2012 deals. For these you have to wait until Black Friday 2013.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
