The Wii U has only been available to pre-order for two days so far and the Deluxe model is selling out already at certain retailers.  We’ve decided to make a list of online retailers to help direct you where you can buy a Wii U and if you can still get the Deluxe model or not.

Deluxe Still Available

Walmart still has the Deluxe model available, but you have to buy it as a bundle and it ships 12/4/2012: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Nintendo-Wii-U-Solution-Bundle-w-Customer-Choice-of-Wii-U-Game-and-Wii-Remote-Plus/21803986#rr (http://www NULL.walmart NULL.com/ip/Nintendo-Wii-U-Solution-Bundle-w-Customer-Choice-of-Wii-U-Game-and-Wii-Remote-Plus/21803986#rr)

Toys ‘r’ Us currently only has the Deluxe model to pre-order with the Basic model not yet available for pre-order: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=15439636 (http://www NULL.toysrus NULL.com/product/index NULL.jsp?productId=15439636)

Basic Only

GameStop/EBGames: http://www.gamestop.com/wii-u/consoles/nintendo-wii-u-8gb-basic-set/104795 (http://www NULL.gamestop NULL.com/wii-u/consoles/nintendo-wii-u-8gb-basic-set/104795)

Sold Out

Best Buy, you can test your luck with in-store pick-up but online is completely sold out: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Video-Games/Wii-U/pcmcat273800050036.c?id=pcmcat273800050036&searchresults=1&searchterm=wii+u (http://www NULL.bestbuy NULL.com/site/Video-Games/Wii-U/pcmcat273800050036 NULL.c?id=pcmcat273800050036&searchresults=1&searchterm=wii+u)

KMart while offering the Deluxe, oddly it doesn’t offer the Basic model: http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_018W005471094001P?adCell=W3 (http://www NULL.kmart NULL.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_018W005471094001P?adCell=W3)

Sears has taken down their pre-order link: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_05843253000P?adCell=W3 (http://www NULL.sears NULL.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_05843253000P?adCell=W3)

I hope this helps everyone out who still is looking to buy a Wii U.  This list only applies to online retailers, be sure to call your local stores to see if you can pre-order in-store.
