I'm probably gonna be the last person to get a Wii U, I'm so broke.
I have a lot of ideas, some of them are bound to be a bit idiotic

I'll be getting one for Christmas, I'm a patient man, I can wait.

I think that sales will really start to pick up at the christmas shopping period, 30th November is a good time to launch.
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

I'm just picturing huge Wii U cannons that fire consoles when that timer hits zero. It looks like Isiah just jumped and caught one! :P

Here's my Wii U expierience: When we went to Hamilton (...Ontario!), we decided to go to the Upper James Walmart. Oh boy. To sum it up, I didn't get a Wii U. But on the bright side, I'm 4th on a list of people getting the next shippment, which should be arriving this business week, so I'm still getting it before Europe, Australia and Japan. :D
Obviously got NSMB2 midnight of August 19th (hence the name)

You're going to work?! I booked the release day off, and two days beforehand so I can chill out, I absolutely HATE waiting for things to arrive, especially new consoles, I would just be sat at work hum-drumming it!!!
