Quick as a flash, GameStop
is now taking pre-orders on the Wii U
, which today received its release date of November 18
and prices for its Basic and Premium SKUs. Gamestop is going by Nintendo's RRP, with the Basic set (8 GB white Wii U, white Wii U GamePad) priced at $299 and the Premium set (32 GB black Wii U, black Wii U GamePad, GamePad Cradle, Wii U console stand, Nintendo Land
) priced at $349. You can place those pre-orders here
GameStop is also offering an $10 incentive for trade-ins tied to a Wii U pre-order. So the $50 current trade-in for a Wii U goes up to $60 with a Wii U pre-order. That deal applies to all console trade-ins, but only one trade-in can be applied to the Wii U pre-order.
As yet, Amazon, Best Buy, and Toys R Us are not taking pre-orders.
