Nintendo’s much anticipated Wii U console is set to hit stores this November. Pre-orders are available pretty much everywhere now.
Much like with the original Wii, there is an anticipation of a shortage of these consoles. The deluxe edition in particular seems to be selling out quite fast with the pre-orders. If you are looking for one of these for Christmas, an early pre-order is definitely recommended. There are limits on the amount you can pre-order, usually one or two console max per household. This varies by retailer. Make sure not to exceed this limit, or else your order will be cancelled.
The big difference between the basic console and the deluxe console (aside from price) is that the basic set includes only 8 GB of storage in comparison to 32 GB for the deluxe set. The price difference is not that much for the upgrade considering everything you get. The Wii U basic set is retailing for $299 and the Deluxe Set is retailing for $349.99.
The Wii U Basic set includes: White Wii U Console, one white Wii U GamePad controller, Wii U AC Adapter, Wii U GamePad AC Adapter and High Speed HDMI Cable, Sensor Bar.
The Wii U Deluxe set includes: Black Wii U Console, one Black Wii U GamePad controller, Wii U GamePad Stand, Wii U GamePad Cradle, Wii U Console Stand and Nintendo Land Game Disc.

About The Game
April 2011, Kamurocho, Tokyo, a city that never sleeps, even when under attack from zombies. The undead are multiplying and filling the streets of Tokyo’s red light district. The area is quarantined quickly, but degenerates into a district full of terror, panic and devastation. Survivors try to flee the city, but four men rise up to protect those they care most about. If you think zombies are bad, meet the Yakuza.

Quicksilver.com ships from the US, however shipping is free to Canada (for my order the $10 fee to use Purolator was waived). There is however an international handling fee you will have to pay, which will cover duties & taxes so you don’t get hit at customs. The price of this fee will vary based upon the amount you are ordering.
They offer on their website a hassle free 365 days return policy with no cost return shipping, however this is for US customers only. Canadian customers do get the 365 days, but they have to pay return shipping fees, so returning to a store if you can get to one is a much better option.
