So it's out in like 2 weeks-ish for me. I'ts coming out really damn soon, and pretty much all my friends and family have no idea what a WiiU is.
Yeah, pre-orders have sold at at lots of places, but that's to people that are really into gaming...and keep up with these kind of things. If I'm thinking correctly, the ad campaign started Nov. 1st right? It just seems like when the Wii came out, people were talking about it a solid month before release.
But I suppose a sudden spike of hype around it would help more. Plus with shortages of the system, it's really just going to make people want it even more.
Oh yeah, also I tried it at my local gamestop. The gamepad actually feels really awesome. Was worried it would be a bitch to hold, but it really isn't.
