GAME Bracing Itself For Pre-Launch Wii U Sell Out In The UK

White basic bundle already completely sold out on day one
UK video games retailer GAME has revealed that it expects to sell out of its entire allocation of Wii U consoles before the launch day of 30th November rolls around, but has stated that all current pre-orders will be fulfilled on the day of release.
Speaking to Videogamer.com, a GAME spokesperson replied to questions regarding the company's Wii U stock:
Responding to a question asking whether the retailer expects to sell through its launch day allocation of the Black Wii U Premium Console SKU and Black Wii U Premium Console with ZombiU SKU ahead of release day, GAME replied, "Yes".
It continued: "Nintendo have advised, 'Wii U stock levels will be tight on day one, however we will be providing retailers with regular stock deliveries in the run up to Christmas in order to meet demand as quickly as possible.'"
This prediction appears to be backed up by the fact that the basic white Wii U is no longer available for pre-order on GAME's website. When asked about this, the spokesperson admitted that all of the company's pre-launch allocation of the white Wii U had been snapped up already.
