Tweets from gamers this morning suggest customers won't have to queue for long to get their hands on a Wii U:
Out here at Gamestop in Wilton shopping centre at the head of the queue for the new Wii U. I am also the tail of the queue!
Went to GAME in town early to get the wii U expecting a queue, or at least a group of people, but it was just me and some guy... #awks ;P
So yeah, this was the queue for the launch of the Nintendo Wii U last night outside Oxford Street HMV http://t.co/kxGxYb0v
