I live in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, but our local store (we only have one) usually has the newest consoles/games on the day of release. However, I have yet to see a Wii U at the store. I'm not sure if the Manager neglected to order them or if there were just none to available or what happened. At any rate, I didn't get a Wii U yet, but I kinda want a deluxe one. We'll see what happens when more units become available. I didn't buy a Wii or 3DS, and I'm not burnt out on the whole Super Smash Bro's thing like most Wii/3DS owners...I would probably pick that up to go along with Nintendoland until the next big Wii U release.
