GameStop Halts Pre-Orders for Wii U

If you haven't had the chance to pre-order the Wii U and were planning on heading over to to sign up, you can forget about it for the time being. GameStop has stopped taking pre-orders for both version of the upcoming console as of yesterday. While there are likely retailers out there taking pre-orders still, it is curious that the world's largest games retailer would stop so quickly after opening them up late last week.

Did GameStop hit a certain threshold for early sales that it had no choice? While we don't know we assume that the expected supply that GameStop will get from Nintendo will be considerably less than the demand.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.
