Because I’m a huge Nintendo dork with a one-track mind, I predictably posted a Wii U-themed poll this week.
Nintendo cut loose with gobs of Wii U info last Thursday including the console’s price and launch date. If you missed it, the console launches in North America on Nov. 18th in two flavors: a Basic Set for $300 and a Deluxe Set for $350.
So, you getting one?
As of this writing, Gamestop is sold out of preorders for the Deluxe Set while Target, Kmart, Toys R Us and Walmart are out of both. Are you one of those who preordered? Will you be lining up outside your favorite retailer on launch day? Maybe you plan on getting it as a Christmas present?
Or maybe you’re a filthy Nintendo-hatin’ pud muffin and have deluded yourself into thinking you can do without! Heathen! Infidel! PUTZ!!!
Sorry, that was a bit strong.
Anyway, vote in the poll and let us know what your plans are. Fill the comments section and our inbox (SuperPACPodcast@gmail.com) with your thoughts on Nintendo’s latest and we’ll discuss your opinions on the next podcast. I promise to keep the discussion to a reasonable length this time…
