#55
Well i live in NYC

How do i pre order? Go to the store? Does it start now? Also besides the blue shell. Why are people going crazy for this?

Its the same damn thing

I thought you guys hated the blue shell.

Do they have an online store?

Fuck.
Ironically the Pokemon Center that stood in the same place as Nintendo World had an online store and would ship across America. Progress, eh.

Wait there's not a store at the Redmond HQ is there? Can't be I would have heard of it.
I was under the impression there was some sort of store but it was employees only.

you answered your own question
So just buy the normal Bundle and ebay the Blue shell.

If they had made like something really special then cool, like a Red Wii-U or something, but its just the added Shell, which you can get elsewhere.

Edit: Oh wait, I thought this was the Mart Kart 8 Bundled with Wii-U because the box looked so big.

Hmm I may go pick up a few if its just the game, and only $60.

This is a good way to start a mini-frenzy, but I would argue that this is not a sound business/marketing decision. I really do not understand Nintendo of America, and I do not know why it exists.

So do I go to the store to pre-order now? Or is it where I have to wait on line during their early release at 8pm?

If its the latter, then forget it. I rather pre-order at the store, and then pick it up on the 30th after i get off work.

Or...... is this edition the only edition NOA is selling, as opposed to being Limited in the store? Cause in that case I'll just pick it up the 30th.

Probably just go by now.

And while you're there, throw one in for me ;)

No seriously, I'll lay someone to obtain a copy for me. I'll be in NYC in to couple weekends but I doubt they'll still be open for preorders at tha t time

As long as I dont need to wait on line for the nighttime release I might buy a few, if they allow.

I dont even have a Wii-U yet.

I took today off from work. I might just leave in 30minutes and head to the store.
Hmmmmmmm.

If anyone living in New York wants to do me a favor and pre-order one for me/pick it up for me once it's out/ship it to me, send me a PM.
I imagine any and all NYC GAFers are about too make a lot of friends. I know I'd gladly reward someone for the trouble of roe reordering a copy for me. It is, however, ridiculous that you cannot order online and have it shipped since there is literally only one store in America...

Eh, I was planning on heading home to NYC this weekend for Mother's Day and then changed my mind. I guess it serves me right for bailing out on my mom like that :(

I'd probably pay someone 100 bucks just to ship one to me.

Why is this shit limited to the NYC store? So stupid. I'm looking to get a Wii U for MK8.
Nintendo of America was founded in New York City.

The Nintendo World store with their exclusives...is kind of like a tribute to their origins. There is also a Nintendo World store within the Nintendo of America headquarters in Redmond.

So they're $80 each, adding tax would be around $87~ .

dat is expensive.
