He could also go into MLG. It's growing pretty fast pretty much everywhere, especially in Asia.

In regards to TheDreamingHawk, you could try asking your grandparents why they think the price will drop in less than a year. If they say because it isn't selling well, then you can point out that it's selling out of preorders right now, so if that is any indication, it will sell very well.

Also, there is the option of telling your grandparents that 100 dollars doesn't matter as much to you as getting the (deluxe) system early. If you still aren't able to preorder it, then your final option would simply be to buy a regular when it comes out.

Play a sport alone? No one's outside. They are all inside playing WiiU.

Kachou on!

Use the money to buy a few chickens and build a small pen in your room. Chickens are much more profitable than Wii U's. Your grandparents can teach you how to behead a plump chicken, remove the insides, and all of that good stuff.

Ok I dont see the problem here.

1) You said you saved up the money yourself so their for its your money its not like you are asking them for the money to by the system. I mean you get an allowance so you must do chores and that around the house so I dont see where that is a problem

2) Last time I checked you dont need an adult to preorder something at Gamestop maybe for an M rated game.

So what is stopping you from doing what you want with your money. Your not using the money to hurt yourself or anyone else or anything illegal so I fail to see what the problem is.

I happen to be a respectful teen, thank you very much, so if my grandma tells me something, I do it. Even if I don't like it, It's chained to my mind to obey her. So That's why I need her to change her mind.

Well thats great that you respect them but as I said its your money that you earned and its not like by buying a Wii U it is going to hurt them or is illegal. In all honesty it would be like you saying that they cant by a new car with their money cause they already have one.

And yes I am a parent of my own and my son does get an allowance too. I dont put restrictions on what he can and can buy except that A) its not illegal and B) it doesn't hurt him or anyone else. Granted I do tell him that if thats what he wants to spend his money on thats find but don't come asking me for more money when its used up.

I think it's a little unfair to be criticising the grandparents, considering the grandparents aren't here to explain their decision, no?

I mean, for all we know this grandson character might desperately need a lesson in saving money, or perhaps the grandparents have organised a surprise holiday and they want to make sure the grandson has some money saved to enjoy the trip.

Waltz kinda has a point here. There could easily be something else going on that we don't know about here (no matter what excuse Grandma gave — we all know how that goes)... there's no way for any of us to know the full story, and what works for one family won't work for all families. Let's assume good faith on their part and work on ways to change their minds as TheDreamingHawk has asked :3

Honestly, I dont think I ask him not to on to many things. But than again when I do I come up with valid points. I never use the "cause I said so" answer or "cause I can" I just point out the results of his actions as so. For example this past summer he wanted to get a mohawk type haircut which I wasn't thrilled about but after all it is his hair not mine. I told him what I thought about it and that if he wants to do that he is more than welcome to it but if he didnt like it or people made fun of him or if he got in trouble at school for it well than he would just have to deal with it or pay for another haircut cause I wasnt going to pay of another haircut so soon for him. In the end after the thought about it well than he decide not to get it.

Now if this was my son and I was in this position I would be happy for him if he wanted to save up his money and buy the Wii U himself rather than hounding me for the money. And if I was in the position of the Grandparents where I didnt know what the item is that he wanted to buy well I would allow him to present valid points on why he needed/wanted that item.

If i were in your situation I'd rebel it up like Billy Idol, get a job, pre-order the Wii U and in this case do as I please. You may be living under their roof but you're a teenager and they shouldn't exactly have control over your money, nor should you have to depend on them making all of your decisions especially if you want something as harmless as a video game console. Life's short man, i don't know your situation with your grandparents, but if i were a tween, there's no way in hell i'd let my grandparent be in charge of most of the things i wanted to do or buy. It's great to have respect, but for somebody to have control over every little decision you want to make just seems whack IF your're in your mid to late teens. It's like being tied to a leash.

The solution? If you're old enough, get a job. You'll be making your own cash and you wont have to rely on a $10 allowance.
But Waltz is right, bring on the Jack Daniels, throw on some Deen Martin and see what happens. lol

If you own 200 games for the Wii, I will tell you that it is time to get another hobby. Girls, chess, biking, something. 200 is overload, and this is coming from someone who owns every Nintendo console made since the NES (I skipped the ones in the 70s).

Pre-orders is only one way to get a console. I started saving the day of E3 2011 because I wanted it. There is also the wait in line for 8-12 hours the day before at Target or Walmart approach. Either way, you are going to need the money to get it. Start selling those 200 games. . .

200 wii games? Yikes. I've got about 28, with about 25 or so more i'd like to add to my collection and that's that as far as retail releases go.
200 definitly is overkill, besides there must be a lot of crap in that collection so trimming it down and putting that cash towards the Wii U wouldn't hurt!

For the record my idea actually would work. People lose a lot of inhibitions when drunk. The value of money and the urge to suppress impulse buying being one of the first that goes.

But $40 bucks worth? That sounds more like a hospital trip to me.

Lots of censorship here...
