The ever-increasing oddity of what's going on between Nintendo and Amazon hit another milestone yesterday, as the world's largest e-tailer informed customers it won't have Nintendo's latest console available for pre-order.

"Thank for you signing up to be notified when the Wii U is available," the email from Amazon to customers read. "Unfortunately the Wii U console is not available at Amazon.com at this time but please check back in the future, as availability may change."

Amazon stopped carrying Nintendo's 3DS a while back, has never stocked the 3DS XL and is now not making the Wii U available for pre-order.

Attempts to obtain a quote for months from Amazon or Nintendo to explain the situation have gone unanswered. In the meantime, Best Buy and GameStop are happy to take your pre-order money for a Wii U.

Update: Engadget reports Amazon UK has pre-orders posted with Wii U's Basic and Premium units at £249 and £299, respectively. It should be noted Nintendo has not announced an official price for the Wii U in Europe.


Dear Amazon.com Customer, Thank for you signing up to be notified when the Wii U is available. Unfortunately the Wii U console is not available at Amazon.com at this time but please check back in the future, as availability may change. We do have the latest Wii U games and accessories available now so check them out. Thank you for shopping with Amazon Video Games.
