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.


where you located bro? I got a similar email. I'm from new jersey


I preordered at the TRU in Totowa



reserved at secaucus so it can be related ti superstorm sandy

what toysrus did u reserve at i did mine at secaucus


Lol, I said the one in Totowa. I wonder if this is a NJ thing and it might be related to Sandy. Is there anyone on gfaqs that preordered at the Totowa NJ TRU (or any NJ TRU) that got an email saying it will be ready on Sun?

I drove to the ToysRus I ordered at on my lunch break and talked to the guy in electronics. He told me they would be in tomorrow and they would be open til 1AM to sell them and that the email was not something to worry about.

I'm in Winston-Salem NC.

My lovely GF called my Toys R Us and asked about the e-mail and they said to disregard it, and that they have already received all the pre orders and they will be ready on the 18th!!!!!!!!!! Just letting u guys know, you might wanna call in to your specific store and see what they say!

I'm probably just going to take a ride over there tomorrow and check it out. It's not far.

I was the first person that preordered at my Toys R Us, but I don't think that number really matters anyways... I should have just preordered my brother's at Gamestop like I did with mine, but I didn't want it to look like I was trying to resell...

They had at least 50 preorder slips for the Black system...


The slips in my TRU had barcodes for both the Deluxe and Basic models on the same slip and they scanned the one you wanted to preorder.


They only had slips for only the Black model and I think it said on the slip something about the White model being available in the future... I'll have to double check it when I get home..

It seems that every Toys R Us is handling these preorders differently..

A friend of mine preordered at TRU in North Carolina, and got a similar email, only theirs said the items WAS IN STOCK and ready for Sunday pickup. Guess the shipments are staggered. Since some TRU stores have them, that PROBABLY bodes well for others receiving them today/tomorrow.

I ordered from a regional chain, and while they initially told me the shipment was later than expected or delayed, in the end I got a call from them this afternoon stating that my deluxe system was ready and waiting for pickup Sunday morning. Score.

TRU has them and enough to cover preorders.

its a matter of the wiis not being scanned into the presell bay. if you got an email it means they have received their shipment. if they dont get scanned in it sends out emails saying your preorder is late.

My Toys R Us apologized for the email and said they merely hadn't scanned the inventory into their system. They said the preorder would be fulfilled tomorrow as planned.
