The lights are on
Update: After opening up pre-orders for Nintendo's new console immediately after Thursday's press conference, GameStop has already filled its quota for the $349.99 bundle.
It looks like the Basic bundle is still available for pre-order.
Thanks to Mrs. Featherbottom for the news tip!
Want to lock in your preferred version of the new console?
On the heels of the release date announcement from Nintendo, GameStop has opened preorders for both versions of the Wii U. In addition, announced games including ZombiU, New Super Mario Bros. U, and Call of Duty Black Ops II are also available.
The console can be ordered in one of two options. The Basic Set costs $299.99, and includes an 8 GB white Wii U and white Wii U GamePad. The Deluxe Set will run you $349.99, and it includes a 32 GB black Wii U, a black Wii U GamePad, GamePad Cradle, Wii U console stand, and pack-in title Nintendo Land.
GameStop is offering trade-in bonuses for any older game systems you're ready to get rid of, with additional trade-in value on each system trade for PowerUp Rewards members.

OH MAN!! I was just fixing to preorder. Thx
Retro Studios' next game better be front and center at next years E3 or I'm going to be sorely disappointed.
How many did Dan order?
Nice! Its great to see that its selling so fast!!! I will be getting mine this holiday, or as soon as I can find one left on the self!
Can't wait to see Test Chambers with the Wii U. I'm happy with what I have now so I'll wait on the pre order of this but it's exciting to see none the less.
After seeing what they can do with COD I may just pick this up after Christmas if things go well. Obviously they are not going to have a hard time finding people to buy their games :P
That's cray cray!
That's too bad, only if i had $349.99 to get this...
