Nintendo Wii U Preorders Selling Out Ahead of Nov. 18 Launch

Nintendo’s Wii U, which won’t arrive in U.S. stores until Nov. 18, is already close to selling out. CNBC reports that major retailers, like Walmart, Best Buy, Toys “R” Us, Target and Sears, are no longer taking preorders. GameStop has sold out of the Deluxe edition, which costs $350, but the basic version for $300 is still available. Analysts warn, however, that Nintendo may be limiting supplies to help generate buzz for the system.
