    Go Go Go :)

    Excellent price, worth biting at that price point....

    Sorry for the early adopters :(

    Still over-priced.

    I think 199 is about right (that was backed up by most reviews if I recall) for the premium bundle, so this is not far off....

    in fact it is dead level really with Sonys new 500gb slim.....

    Lego City is going to be the killer for me, how I wish they had gone multi platform :(

    Does it come with any games?

    ...Sorry, silly question. ;)

    I don't think people consider the value of the controller, which is apparently nearly as expensive as the console itself, so you're not going to win too many fans over with this one. Even with the bundled game.

    It comes with Nintendoland.

    I'd quite like one but they need to let me get at previously purchased content, I have loads and I want it back.

    Why would you want to waste 238.99?

    A loud whirring noise in the distance.

    Naaaaaa. The way it's looking right now I wouldn't be tempted if it was 150. :/

    If you don't have much spare cash I see no reason to get this, the ps4 and Xbox will be about 100 more and far better value for money as you will have 3rd party games to play.

    So much hate for the WiiU.

    I'm quite happy to be in the minority. That's a good price in my opinion.

    I'd still love one, and would certainly have that in a heartbeat, the same way I'd have paid more for one on launch. I certainly don't feel sorry for early adopters - in fact I'm jealous that they had the money for one and the enjoyment of having played it as much as they want :)

    I bought a Cube when Argos were dumping stock for something like 80 quid, I think that's my price point for a Wii U.

    Hate's a strong word.
    I'm just super dooper uninterested in what the Wii U has to offer.

    You are interested enough to troll the Wii U threads. :)

    Grainger Games Wii U software prices are reasonable too.

    Ha. I did that too, though I paid 55 as I recall.

    Yeah, I got an xbox 1 for about that from them. Paid 150 quid for my DC when Sega slashed the price desperate to kickstart sales on the other hand. Think that's my Wii U price point, and Ninty can go swallow the inflation.

    I did the same but only paid 25 for it and got Mario Soccer or whatever.

    That was the Mario Strikers console bundle I think - it meant that if you wanted the game and an extra controller to play it, it was cheapest to buy the bundle and throw the console away.

    Good times. :)

    Not massively surprising that I never felt as bad about buying the Gamecube as I did about buying the Wii. \o/

    Any price is bad for this thing with new next gen consoles on the horizon which will be much more powerful rendering this obsolete especially if you already have (which i assume most people do) xbox or ps3.Better keeping your money for new xbox/ps4 imo

    They were only about 100 when they first came out!

    I'll just hold back until I can download the games and play them on an emulator, thanks.
