US price is decent. UK price is brutally high considering no roper storage (yes you can have External HDD but that's more cost). Has no DVD or Blu-Ray playback so complements your other stuff unlike ps3 or to a lesser extent Xbox which replaces DVD/Blu-ray players.

Anyway Zombi-U looks good - hell if reviews are good enough i'll probably end up buying one because it's new tech :D

Thanks to this advert, I've found the first piece of "music" this year I hate more than Gangnam Style.

That's a pretty good ad. Much better than that God awful British one. What the hell is the matter with Nintendo UK? Did they actually see their finished advert and think it was in any way good?

Seconded.

Any chance Nintendo UK will just use this one? Please?

You must not listen to radio 1 or heart.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Not sure if it's the way the commercial was shot but the controller looks huge!
