Just got an email from TRU

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for shopping at Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us!

We wanted to inform you that we have not yet received inventory on your Wii U Black Deluxe Set Hardwar pre-order which was expected in-store on November 18th, 2012. We will send you a follow-up email once this item is available and ready for pickup.

Damn, I wonder if that means they haven't gotten their shipment yet or that they don't have enough to fill all the preorders. Well, luckily I have a 2nd preorder at Target.

I got this same email from my store and I preordered on day 1 from them so I'm hoping they just haven't received the shipment yet. I also have other preorders though so I'm not too concerned.

It's not just TRU, I just called my Best Buy and they said they haven't received their shipment yet either.

Best Buy did confirm to me that the Best Buy warehouse has them and has confirmed a delivery to my store for Sunday before opening from the warehouse.

Although they also told me they are not getting enough to cover the pre-orders so they said it's first come first serve for who gets the initial batch.

Dumb, the whole reason for pre-ordering is to have one set aside on launch day and it seems I will still have to get there early and hope I get one.

Yeah, I'm still hoping they get them before Sunday. They are opening at 8am on Sun so I was planning on heading there first to pick up my preorder but now I may go to Target first.

Most stores receive deliveries from Monday through Saturday (morning). If you get another e-mail tomorrow THEN you worry.

The Target I work at only got 14 of them. 8 deluxe and 6 standards. That's 1 less of the 9 preorders set for the deluxe and 1 over the standard version. And we didn't get any pro controllers! The whole thing of the launch has been up in the air. I've been making all the higher ups know that I have my preorder card thus I want my wii u
