Only game I'm interested in here is Pikmin 3, but I'm not buying the console just for that game.

Holy s**t.


Also, Nintendo won't be selling the GamePad separately in North America, because launch titles only support one Gamepad.

Better save those 50 bucks for a Pro controller, then.

Its $300 for the system alone and in white color & 8G. Its $350 to get the black one with NintendoLand, 32G, & Gamepad charger. And only for today, you can pre-order any of the 2 Wii U's to start a pre-order for only $25. After today, you will only be able to start a pre-order with the minimum of $50.

Thank God I ordered it already Razz

You can sell your Wii to add to a pre-order for a Wii U, but you will only get $50. While trading in the Xbox 360 gives you $90. PS3, 3DS, etc might give you more

I didn't know that but what I'm saying is if you can trade a Wii for a Wii U at a local store and get a Wii U for free or something like that.

Lol. Why would they give something this new for free, ESPECIALLY if trading a fricken' Wii in for it?

This is going to be the biggest amount of Video game launch titles ever.


I can't see how this won't succeed.

for just $50 bucks more it's just so much better. Really I don't see why anyone would get the $300 package.

It will feel less expensive if you pre-order it and just put in $50 for each time you visit the store before Nov. 18th. IMO, its best to pre-order it and pay little by little rather than paying it in full months/years after.

If Nintendo never stepped in, Bayonetta 2 wouldn't even exist. Of course, these so-called fans don't see that.

I love the wii and the oncoming wii-u I really do ,but I'm honestly going to treat it like the wii again , and thats (wait till the year e3 shows new super smash) get new super smash, new mario kart, and if bayoneeta 2 is lovely I will get it in 2 years...or so.
For me I just turned 21 and im in one of those times when I have to save my money and such unless something is down to its lowest price. I gotta save some money so I probably won't be able to play them wii-u games for a year or two...
The only thing I dislike about nintendo is when they come out with a console and all there good games (IMO) are like a half a year after the console comes out.
For example, when I got a 3ds I had to wait about 3 or 4 months till kid icarus or zelda came out DX. I'm excited for the wii-u but more excited for the games and not what the console does for itself, I dunno why but everytime I see a expo that shows a console that can stream netflix or youtube im like psaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. I would like to buy a wii-u but its gonna have to wait Smile

Go on the Wii U website and watch the features videos. That's some serious console improvement
