RUMOR - GameStop not taking Wii game preorders anymore?

Planning on getting Disney Infinity or Pandora's Tower for Wii? You might have a rough go of things at GameStop. Reader Jordan tells us that GameStop locations have stopped taking preorders for Wii games. This was done to free up virtual space for Wii U preorders. If you head out to your local GameStop this weekend, make sure to ask and see what they say!

I just shared what my gamestop told me. I figured They might take preorders for Pandora's Tower once a release date was set. It's really just a waiting game.

My statement wasn't really directed towards the person who turned in the information. I'm just saying that the information was wrong. No harm, no foul. The game is actually reservable right now.

I'll be checking at one of the Gamestops near me this weekend. I do want to preorder Pandora's Tower, though I'm not sure if they have preorders open for it yet. That being said, It is on their website, with a release date of 3/26 and a price tag of $39.99.

@J0RdAnN It could be what you suggested; the employee accidentally skipped over the Wii section and just assumed it was taken out; or maybe if you checked yesterday that Wii was taken down momentarily (I have no idea if it was up yesterday or not)

Though, I will say that I've never heard of one store not having data in their computer that another did. I was under the impression that it was all pretty much universal. I could be wrong though.

I just spoked to two of my four GS, they told me, PT is in their system for a tentive release date 03/27 for $39.99.
One employee said, PT is the only Wii game on their release list.
Also appears on the GS website and comes up in their search engine.
