    Any UK Wiiuforum members like me having to wait that little bit longer?

    Hey just wondering how many of you like me have to wait for the European release of the WiiU? 30th of November is going to take ages once the US has had the Nov 18th release, man the 18th Nov is going to suck for me on this forum, no doubt there will be unboxing videos/pictures coming up and no doubt a new bout of members joining the forums, and then the silence as you all will be chatting away in Miiverse and getting through hours and hours of ZombiU.

    And all the while I'll be sitting waiting for the 30th to arrive dying a little inside, I have been playing some retro games to get through the wait as it is, LoZ windwaker has been played but I'm progressing to quickly might have to dig out a few more Zelda games and might have to get out the dreamcast.

    You American's are so lucky! still I do look forward to it, let's hope the friends system is user names and not those damn friends codes as I expect to be chatting away to you lot on Miiverse on the 30th Nov and I will no doubt need your help and guidance on ZombiU!

    I have the worst wait, my parents are getting me one for Christmas, (they already told me since it's literally the only thing I have asked for anyway) so they won't let me have it until the 25th. Still, I will be reading though everyone's posts and I'm sure many other people will be waiting for Christmas like me too. ^^

    I'm Australian, so I'll also have to wait until November 30. I'm hoping that I can secure the Nintendo Network username I desperately want, if the NN even has usernames. I know I'll be able to get my secondary name, as I managed to obtained that on PSN, Xbox Live & Steam years after those services launched.

    I'll definitely be taking the later launch as an opportunity to finalise my launch day purchases as I'll actually get to see extensive coverage of the launch titles I'm currently unsure about - mainly ZombiU.

    I think the longest wait for me will be the actual day of delivery whats the betting they actually don't deliver it until the afternoon or evening, when I've taken the whole day off work for the launch.

    You do realize that the 18th is a Sunday and mail doesn't get delivered that day....

    So MAYBE we will get lucky and it will deliver on the 17th (stores are set to get shipments in the 14th - 16th so hopefully they start mailing as they get them), or we will get totally screwed and they won't go out until the 19th. Either way, those of us who ordered online won't get it on release day.

    Ah, well that makes sense, then. See if people actually at least put their country locations....

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news buddy, but it looks like the UK is in trouble. Did you see this yet?
    Wii U shortage in the UK


    Shoot, I don't live in the UK and this news has me all noided. I live in the US and I'm calling off work and getting to my GameStop EARLY! I've been reading too many horror stories lately, from ceramicsaturn's Best-Buy fiasco, to GameStop's pre-order issues, now the UK stuff? Homie don't play that!..I'm making sure I get mine.

    That is sad to hear. I feel for those in the UK. It is sad that many in America and Europe will have to wait until a much later date due to demand outstripping supply.

    Yeah, the rumor they mention in that article has the initial supply at about 25% of the number of launch available Wiis, and that's just all kinds of messed up. I wonder what's going to happen here in the U.S. Maybe we'll be all right because we're getting units that otherwise would have went to Europe, I don't know. And isn't the GameStop waiting list at like 250,000 right now? There was the story the other day about the UK pre-orders not selling out, I wonder how many they originally thought they were going to get, and what their waiting lists look like now?

    Yeah I've heard the bad news I'm hoping I will get mine day one as I preordered very early with a money down payment, GAME have confirmed a console for me, it's first come first serve so I'm keeping my fingers crossed they keep to their word.

    Hey that's what I'm doing for! Can't say it's bad though. I don't pay for it and I can get games all at once. Also it gives me something to do at home over Christmas break.

    Well, not from the UK but from the Netherlands, but yes I'll have to be patient too right now just driving myself crazy by reading every article and forum I can find :P

    This will be my first console since the Gamecube. Really wanted the Wii but never had the money for it at the time, and when I finally did I decided not to buy a console which was almost due for an update.

    I'm actually buying a secondhand Wii with a bunch of games right now, so I can entertain myself until the 30th and then rest assured that I can still use all the games with the Wii U

    Long story short: I feel your pain. =P
