The lights are on
GameStop said today it's seen 1.2 million reserves placed on Wii U launch titles worldwide. That's more than double the level of the original Wii launch titles in 2006. The retailer also listed off its top reserving titles, which include ZombiU, Assassin's Creed 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and New Super Mario Bros. U.
"While we remain very excited about Wii U's potential we also caution
that we have limited knowledge of supply and we may not be able to
satisfy the strong demand during our fourth quarter," GameStop president Tony Bartel said during the company's earnings call this morning.
GameStop said it has nearly 500,000 customers on the Wii U reservation waitlist worldwide.

So it begins.
honestly much as i want a wii u n love nintendo this kinda suprises me
Damn. 500,000 people on the Wait list? I'M one of those. Son of a B*tch!
I guess I was wrong in thinking that nobody knew about the Wii U.
But can it compete with the Wiis record. That remains to be seen...
This is a lie. They just ask pro members if they want to be on the list even if they aren't going to buy it. I'm on the list and I ain't buying one.
