    I'm a bit surprised no-one's set up a specific thread for this, instead letting things get buried in the general WiiU discussions. Anyway, I'm going to start off by listing the 3 launch system "bundles" that have been announced, detailing what's contained in them; after that I'll do a second post compiling current sources and their prices for the bundles.

    Straight from the official Nintendo site: http://www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/wii_u_52414.html

    Basic Pack

    Wii U Console (White) x1
    Internal flash memory 8GB (A section of the internal memory is reserved for system data)
    Wii U GamePad (White) x1
    Wii U GamePad stylus (White)
    Wii U AC Adapter x1
    Wii U GamePad AC Adapter x1
    HDMI Cable (1.5m) x1
    Sensor bar not included

    Premium Pack

    Wii U GamePad stylus (Black)
    Wii U GamePad Cradle x1
    Wii U GamePad Stand x1
    Wii U Console Stand x1

    Wii U GamePad AC Adapter x1
    HDMI Cable (1.5m) x1
    Sensor bar x1

    ZombiU Premium Pack*

    Wii U Console (Black) x1
    Internal flash memory 32GB (A section of the internal memory is reserved for system data)
    Wii U GamePad (Black) x1
    Wii U GamePad stylus (Black)
    Wii U Pro Controller (Black) x1
    Wii U GamePad Cradle x1 (possibly removed)
    Wii U GamePad Stand x1 (possibly removed)
    Wii U Console Stand x1 (possibly removed)
    Wii U AC Adapter x1
    Wii U GamePad AC Adapter x1
    HDMI Cable (1.5m) x1

    Confirmed that Nintendo Land is removed from ZombiU Premium Bundle:

    The ZombiU Pack is like the #WiiU Premium Pack but instead of Nintendo Land it includes the #ZombiU game and a black Wii U Pro Controller.

    @quadfather Yeah, there seems to be some confusion about what's in or out in the two bundles, though that just seems to have been answered:

    Nintendo UK ‏@NintendoUK

    The ZombiU Pack is like the #WiiU Premium Pack but instead of Nintendo Land it includes the #ZombiU game and a black Wii U Pro Controller.

    As helpful as this thread seems to be, I suspect most will pop into Asda/Tesco on launch night and pick one up for cheaper than whatever these online retailers are offering. Whatever the prces now, I suspect they'll come down a bit anyway. As 300 is about $500 o_O

    Yeah i'm expecting about 30 quid to come off each bundle. Zombie u will go down to 300 i think. 230 and 269 i think be the prices of the other two.

    @YenRug:
    Good idea, maybe keep a separate list at the top citing where the bundles are cheapest?

    And yeah, just like 3DS prices will come crashing down the last two weeks prior to launch...

    Zavvi/TheHut have bumped their prices up by 15-20, but they're still the cheapest (just). I've updated and added other sites to the list.

    @YenRug Placed a Zavvi order when it was 300 for the ZombiU bundle. Seems they are honouring it for the time being as it's not changed in my account.

    Enjoy your Wii U when it turns up 4 weeks late, and is not actually the bundle you ordered.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    I'm in the same boat, as soon as I saw the price increase I went and checked my account.

    The best price for ZombiU bundle is now 319.99.

    Just added Gameseek who are now cheapest on the Basic and Premium bundles, equal cheapest on ZombiU bundle.

    Tried that Toys R Us discount code and it appears they're already aware of it, as it was rejected immediately.

    Reviewed and updated. Prices have generally risen on those sites which were previously cheaper and several sites now have certain bundles delisted/sold out.

    The smart thing to do is let technology do the legwork. i haven't got a lot of money, so when i can save a fiver i will. the thing with writing prices makes it hard to find wheres cheapest over and over again. no offence YeRug. check out GAMEstock to get up to the minute prices. http://www.gamestock.co.uk/wiiubundles
    what do you think?

    I haven't got anything against zavvi, but their delivery has been very slow in the past.

    So, same prices as Yenrug managed to find, except less up to date on whether Zavvi were still taking orders or not. Good going, soldier.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    No offence taken, but if you did actually check my bundle price list you would see that the cheapest source is Gameseek as Zavvi/The Hut were sold out of the ZombiU bundle.

    One other thing to note about the Zavvi pre-orders is that they send you a code every Friday to pre-order a game at a discounted price. 2 weeks ago it was Rayman for 20, last Friday it was Just Dance 4 for 20. Worth considering if you're planning on buying a few games with it. I'm just waiting for Mario to appear at a knock-down price.

    Went with Argos myself as I can put it on my store card in order to keep money for Xmas gifts.

    Looking at Wii U vids I understand how Apple-heads feel looking at Iphone vids:D

    @SteveEvil

    For some reason I've not been getting those e-mails, despite being reassured I'm on the mailing list; I get stupid amounts of advertising e-mails from them, but the important ones aren't showing up. :(

    I managed to snag the Rayman Legends code, which they supplied via customer service messaging, wasn't one I was planning to get but at 19.99 couldn't really say no; I skipped the sports game one, not seen a code for Just Dance yet, but don't think I'd get it anyway.

    Considering how many weeks until launch, will be interesting to see what else shows up in their offers.

    @YenRug I'll try to update the thread each week when I get the e-mail in that case, that way you'll know if it's worth chasing customer services for the code in question.

    Gameseek charge for shipping 6.99 for a Wii-U so not cheapest. Have put an order in for the Shopto one myself - though I struggle to understand my own thinking.

    Still no major salvos fired in the assumed price-war. Something tells me that these prices are going to stick.
