Saw some are selling for $500 on craigslist and ebay. Are people dumb enough still not to just wait a few weeks and pick one up when more are in stock?

Yes, but I still want first impressions of actual users and not tech writers that have allegiances to one platform or another.

IDK, I might buy this for the next Zelda refresh. Until then, negative.

Will definitely buy for this. Potentially before this if something interest snags my attention.

In Target earlier and they weren't exactly fighting over them. I think it will be like the Wii, the only good games are Mario, Zelda, etc. and games that were released one to two years ago on other consoles.

I thought about getting one if ZombieU was good, but it's getting terrible reviews.

Really? The one Kotaku article I read on it seemed really positive.

Gamespot gave it a 4.5 and IGN gave it a 6 something, and they were being generous.

They both say it becomes incredibly tedious with clunky combat and that the graphics suck.

Apparently the multiplayer is pretty fun (limited to 2 player local co-op), but the single player is repetition and dull.

Man reading reviews and looking at more hands on pictures.

The build quality seems terrible. Thing looks extremely cheap. Still confused about the use of the game pad.

Look at any hot gift during Christmas for any given year. Yes, I assure you, people are this stupid.

The gamepad is a useless gimmick at this point.

You really couldn't be more wrong. The game pad is actually what makes this machine shine. I spent more time tinkering with the game pad then actually playing a game yesterday.
