Wii U Games Not Being Stocked?

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Wed Dec 03, 2014 3:30 pm

Lately, I've been seeing people saying they don't get Wii U games stocked in stores near them. (or they are stocked really late) Even myself, I've noticed pretty much all stores other than Game Stop not stocking new games on Wii U for a week or more after release. My Best Buy didn't get Bayonetta 2 for at least a week, hell, even Smash Bros. wasn't there on launch day. >_> Have any of you noticed this? And why do you think this would be happening?

I know the Wii U isn't selling as well as it could. But retailers are probably losing money off of not stocking some of these new Wii U games, especially games as popular as Smash Bros. And why would Nintendo not be shipping more Wii U games in some areas? It doesn't make sense to me really.

Everything fine where I am.
'Course, I live in Toronto.
But that's interesting.

I haven't noticed this myself but this does not sound good. Stocking the games late or not stocking them at all is going to hurt sales if this happens too much and all over the place. I hope this doesn't happen too much. I have no idea why this is happening.

Well where I live this doesn't seem to be an issue. Day one of Smash Bro's launch I was able to find it at the local Meijer  & Toys R Us. I tend to avoid Best Buy like the plague cause I don't like associates bothering me & asking me if I need help every time I pass one of them by. <.<; Ugh.

I've seen tons of new Wii U games releasing on launch at the stores: where I live at. So it could just be state based for Wii U games releasing to stores. I have no idea why that would be though. *shrugs*
