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.

Child of Light isn't an indie game. But you'd be forgiven for wondering why Ubisoft's painterly RPG seems technologically unambitious for a game arriving six months into the lifetime of two new consoles.It's for this reason that the side-scroller might pass under a lot of radars. It hasn't got the flash of Assassin's Creed IV nor the muscle of Far Cry 3, yet it's from the studio that created both those games.However Creative Director Patr ...
