I would say turn off the auto power down feature and let it continue to download while you are out.

From what I understand, the auto turnoff feature doesn't work if you are updating or downloading games :)

All this talk about target is worrying me about my pre order... I have the card, but I won't be there for another hour (And even then I'll wait at sears to try nabbing a deluxe)

EB Games had us waiting outside for 50 mins in the cold with the security guard telling us they were running late...only to be told that the midnight launch got cancelled. Froze my butt off for nothing. So I'll never pre-order with EB Games again....Guess Best Buy or Future shop will get my money. Going to finally get my WiiU in about an hour...

This is a paradox. How can you be a big fan and not be excited about the next big thing? :P

15 minutes left... Gonna wait in line at sears and rush to the electronics section and hope to nab a deluxe when it opens. If not, I'll go to target and do the basic set preorder I made instead.

I'm excited, but less so than I've been for past launches. Not being able to play VC games on the GamePad took a lot of wind out of my sails.

Plus, it looks like they're setting us up to buy a game all over again to get an optimized Wii U version. So, you could conceivably buy a game three times. One for Wii, 3DS, and Wii U (plus, old games would count as "new releases" and we'd be less likely to see anything not yet available... like what's going on with 3DS VC NES releases). I hope it's like PlayStation Store PS One purchases, that you can have on PS3 AND PSP. However, at first glance, Nintendo is taking the Microsoft Money Grab approach (which completely turned me off on everything XBox). I hope I'm wrong. I guess time will tell.

At any rate, going after mine in a few hours here. Can't wait for NSMBU. Just got my million coins in NSMB2 yesterday, and body is officially ready!

Quick question for anyone who has one: does the disc slot still glow? I always liked that about the original Wii and I am hoping they kept it.

Now time to start migrating stuff from my Wii and updating.

Edit: Toys R Us has a buy 1 Wii U game at regular price and get a second for 40% off deal. I got my (much closer) Target to price match it. I picked up Mario Bros and Epic Mickey 2 but I might bring Epic Mickey back. I haven't opened it yet and I'm having a bit of buyers remorse. I'll trade it for either Rayman or Scribblenauts. I haven't really decided yet. I've got ZombieU coming from NewEgg but I haven't received any delivery notifications or anything yet and I want it NAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

I've never seen it or anyone mention it at all since the original announcement...its most likely gone. Would've been nice if they brought it back and have it turn on whenever the system was turned on instead. :p

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD

When it was first announced I didn't care much. But after talking with friends I got excited and looked into it more. I'm pretty excited now and can't wait for the update to finish!

I JUST GOT A DELUXE!

I went into sears right before it opened, and found I was the second in a line of 4. The guy ahead was a adult nintendo fan, the guy behind was a birthday man (Also adult), and the woman behind him was a granny wanting to get a black set for her christmas kids.

It started out as a mini riot at first as the guy at the counter thought we were asking for a non-existent system, and after having to argue with him (All of us, even my grandma!) for 5 minutes, the guy in front of me pulled out a ad that showed the Wii U and it's date, and THEN they went back and got some wii Us.

Problem? Only two of them. I was second in line and got one, and was so happy! But the birthday guy behind me wanted one too... So I gave him my basic set target preorder card as a B-day gift from me even though we never met. The granny at the end just simply went to target and picked one up, she had a white preorder card as well.

So all in all, I'm very happy, can't wait to start playing Nintendo land!:D

I did and got an email Friday with shipping confirmation and a tracking number. Did you get a confirmation email when you put in the order?

Yeah, when I preordered, but that's about it.
Checked my orders page and its listed as "Open"... :/
