    Since this thread has become the general Wii U/Nintendo dumping ground...

    What happened to 'The Bomb' thread renamed 'The Shart'? Has it been cleansed from the forum entirely? I can't find it.

    Ah, renamed again. That's what I get for not keeping up.

    Thanks!

    Is this the 360 failure rate thread?
    Mine is 2 years old now. How much more life can I expect?

    224.99 for the Premium:

    http://www.zavvi.com/wii-u-hardware/wii-u-console-32gb-nintendo-land-premium-pack-black/10617661.html

    Heading in the right direction... if they can get it down to 200 before / when Mario + MK hit, they could still rescue this one.

    Indeed, If they have any sense, they'll dump the base model, have the premium in black or white for xmas with MK, Mario 3D etc. out.

    That's not Nintendo though. That's retailers trying to offload stock.

    That's a great price in my opinion. The premium is the only way to go, the basic is all but pointless really.

    Tried Nintendoland with my girlfriend last night. I'm very impressed, it's full of genius.

    Skyward Sword is lush too, the Wii picture looks great, has it been confirmed whether the WiiU upscales? It certainly looks crisper than I was expecting.

    The basic model is for sale at Zavvi for 425 (includes Just Dance).

    Definitely a more competitive price, Nintendo would be wise to announce a price-drop ASAP.

    Doesnt stop them screwing over the early adopters (again) though....

    I had a blast at the weekend with Nintendoland, especially Metroid, Zelda and Pikmin multiplayer. I love the visuals in the Zelda game too, bags of fun and loads of content.

    It does simple upscaling, no re-rendering or anything, maybe it has decent scaling built into the hardware.

    Skyward Sword is such a beautiful game, I love the 'impressionist' style and the brilliant character designs, I'll be very happy with a similar style in the next Zelda.

    I'd be more than happy if they pulled another 3ds.

    A load of classic Nintendo games is a nice payoff.

    early adopters always get screwed by everyone, that's why there's a special term for them.

    @Armoured_Bear

    Art design is great, the loftwings are animated so well. The sword spirit thing is really well realised.

    After Super Mario WiiU and Nintendoland I'm really excited to see what else Nintendo do. I know the console is criticised for a lack of power but I think there's plenty for Nintendo's purposes.

    They really do need to consider third parties though.

    Playing F-zero FX on Dolphin and seriously i'd buy a wii-u for an FX-2.

    Speak the truth hussy!

  • Deleted user 20 February 2013 09:26:00
    Was that the Sega designed one? I never got to play it. I'm assuming the VC will do GC gamez this gen?

    I haven't owned a Nintendo console for a long time, I'm far too excited about the prospect of VC on the gamepad.

    I think the criticism is fair as they could easily have put together a more powerful machine in a slightly bigger box at almost zero extra cost.
    Having said that, we haven't came close to seeing what the machine is capable and I'm sure there will be some utterly beautiful games appearing.

    The SEGA one was F-Zero GX, that was the shiznit that was.

    GX is exactly what I meant to say excuse me.

    Ah,

    it's FZero next on the VC promotion today. I bought Balloon Fight or 30p, do I get to keep it for that price or was it only a month rental?

    I'm seeing conflicting things on the interweb.

    Hmm, the unofficial Nintendo website is pretty sure that 30p gets you the game not just a trial.

    30p seems to good to be true for the likes of Super Metroid.

    Neat! I've got 55p in my wallet. Need to go and buy another points card at lunchtime.

    Any news on us Euros getting the Ubisoft eShop 30% Discount Apology offer?
    Some said Thursday for us most probably.
