GameStop Wii U preorders open now, accepting trade-ins

GameStop has opened up Wii U pre-orders this morning following the system’s official price and date announcement. Both the 8GB Basic set and the 32GB Premium are awaiting your clicks, both set for shipping on November 18. Several launch window games are also pre-order-able, though some of the pricing is not set yet.

GameStop has a promotion that will give you up to $150 credit toward your new Wii U with a game system trade-in. You’ll get a healthy $140 for a slim PS3 trade, or $115 for an OG PS3 or Slim Xbox 360 trade. A 3DS or Vita gets you $90. But they’ll only give you $50 for your Wii. The pricing on this offer is valid from today through September 23, so get your pre-order in now.
