Assuming you are in the states, it's $30 for WiiU today at Beat Buy. Get off the fence.

Amazon has matched this price as well. Also, Target - who already had the game on sale for $45 - is big on matching prices of both brick and mortar & online competitors, so if you want it, now is the time to grab it. After a cleaning out a couple gift cards, I grabbed a copy for $15 about 30 mins ago.

Thank God they fixed the Home Button thing. SO annoying having to exit multiplayer/zombies, go to campaign, and then be able to go back to the Wii U Menu

About time they patched the home menu issue, I really hated having to always to back to the title screen whenever I was playing multiplayer or Zombies just to exit the game.

Give these guys some credit, at least they're trying to appease the fans and not forgetting the Wii U owners when they clearly could due to sales.

I am also extremely happy I no longer have to return to the Campaign to use the Home menu.

What's Buffed Auto Aim assist?

Also interesting, they managed to fix ALL of these things but introduced something as blatant as this: when in Zombies mode and you go to pick where to play (Bus Depot, Town, Farm) you can only use certain directions on the D-Pad when flipping between these 3. Try it out. It's trivial but weird it was not caught in testing. For instance, when moving FROM Bus Depot TO the Farm you can press "Down", but you cannot go back TO Bus Depot FROM Farm by pressing "Up".

Ok I'm going to bed now.
