    Default Wii U info FINALLY released!

    November 18th, 2 bundles.

    Wii Console, Wii U gamepad, AC adapter, HDMI cable, and sensor bar (8 GB) (Basic, color white) $300

    " ^ " plus charging pad, stands for the controller, extra memory (32GB) and Nintendo Land. (Deluxe, black) $350

    No Wii controllers or nun-chucks with the system. Fils-Aime says the existing controllers work with the new products. Sold more than 100M controllers and 65M nunchuck controllers, so there are plenty of controllers out there, he says.


    Blew me away with the price. I'm getting one ASAP!

    Edit: Should this be a sticky? I dunno if I have the authority to do that...if someone else wants to do it to it, be my guest.

    I believe I'll go with the basic model. It has expandable memory so IDK a reason why I wouldn't. $50 might not be much more, but that 8% tax suckssssssss.

    Spunkify once told me that we mods do whatever we want, so I don't see a reason why you can't. I'd rather sticky it in General Gaming rather than General though.

    Anyways, I probably won't get this either. Other than Mario I probably wouldn't touch the other games on the Wii so yea... :/

    I'm going to wait until the reviews come out and there are more games that I want to play. I might just invest in whatever console they're going to port monster hunter to next.

    Monster Hunter was announced as a "launch window" title. He said that was between now and March next year.

    I'll move this over to General gaming, I wasn't thinking >_<

    I guess after 27 years Nintendo has learned from its mistakes lol. Better late than never.

    When Smash Bros. is released, I'll make the decision to buy.

    Well considering the power of the console the price is not surprising.

    It's not much of a jump from the 360/PS3.

    The 3DS almost cost as much because it is a portable device.

    I know it sounds stupid but I'm waiting on hearing about the online capabilities.

    It's such a small thing to most people, but I really love trophies. If the games don't offer me some kind of trackable achievement list I might pass. Even if its not something like I have in my signature that allows me to flex my nerd dong for people, I like to have some kind of statistics and checklist for myself to accomplish in a game besides the main story. Idk. I've heard rumors but nothing official. I know I'm not the only person who'd feel like something was really lacking without it.

    How?

    Bayonetta 2 was rumored to be cancelled up until Nintendo decided they'd publish it for the WiiU, and before then all you heard was people saying how they wished the game would be picked up by someone. Now it's all, "Bayonetta on the WiiU? Ew."

    my problem lies with the Only on WiiU part, the first bayonetta was a great game, really wish they would release it on more systems, then again with the wole new tablet thing, thats a no go

    granted il end up getting a WiiU in due time, but still.
