GAME prices Wii U models at £260, £310

Postby illage2 » 14 Sep 2012, 12:07

:'( Not nice to our wallets I was gonna get one ....... I still am :D however I'm gonna shop around as £260 is too much for a console, considering how bad the economy is in.

I'll be looking to get mine on Amazon, so until the release I'm saving up.

Edit:
Just checked on Amazon how much it is, £249 for basic 8GB
and £299 for the Premium model.

O_O OMFG ...... The 8GB isn't getting a Power adapter ... so that means you've spent £249 on a console you can't use because there is no Power adapater ..... what a f**king rip off.

Check and compare both models in Amazon. look at the "What's in the Box" section. You'll see I speak the truth.

It's bloody expensive for a console without a hard drive.

One question, in the Zombie U bundle listed on Game.co.uk, it is said to include both Nintendo Land and Zombie U as well as the Pro Controller. Is this correct?

Because every other retailer is not listing Nintendo Land in the bundle, nor did Nintendo specify what the bundle actually contained.

I could still consider buying the Wii U, if both games are packaged in the bundle, but from Shopto.net, which has listed the same package for £325.

And 6 year old tech. Remember, 6 years ago the Xbox 360 launched at £300 and was first to make the giant leap to the next generation. This time we're paying £300 for what exactly?

I don't know what Nintendo are playing at, I just want a decent deal on a console I have to buy (for my little bro).

The price rumours knocking about yesterday were around £40 cheaper than this.

Does anyone know if the ZombiU bundle comes with NintendoLand? Amazon have changed the details recently to
Box Contains
Wii U console with 32GB memory storage unit
Wii U GamePad
Wii U Pro controller
24-Months Nintendo Network Premium
ZombiU game
HDMI cable
Wii U AC adapter
Wii U GamePad AC adapter


Taking NintendoLand off the list... Would be odd for it to cost £30 extra just for the pro controller if it only comes with the one game.

No Ac adapter in the basic pack? surely that's got to be a typo on Amazons part. Just checked Games website and it says an Ac adapter for game pad and console comes as part of the pack. I think Ninty has to come out and set a rrp as prices are everywhere, like with 3DS and we all know how that turned out

Wii-Motion Control
DS -dual Screens
3DS Dual Screens and 3D
Wii U - big touch screen pad

Your a troll if your insulting the ds. Its use of 2 screens was inspired and had a mega library

A feature is not a gimmick.


No wonder companies dont listen to gamers, not only are they entitled bitches, they whine about everything

Well preorders are almost at sell out apparently


3DS syndrome is a reasonably high price with not alot of software


the wii u blows what the 3ds had out of the water
