The pre-release hype from outlets like GameStop led most people to believe that the Wii U was a launch-day sellout. And hey, for some retailers, it probably was. But that doesn't mean the new console is sold out.
At time of posting, late on Monday night, there are nationwide retailers in the United States with Wii U consoles in stock and on the shelf—which is not surprising, considering Reggie Fils-Aime told us America would be getting a larger stock. A quick search of Target's website, for example, shows five stores in the NYC/NJ area around our head office have Wii Us on the shelf. Gadget Review points out that a number of Sam's Club stores across the US also have units in stock.
