*** Your opinion on the value of this deal will depend entirely on your perception of the value of the bundled version of Bayonetta 2 First Print Edition ***

Here's my logic:

£220 (average) 32GB (Deluxe) Wii U Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack + £30 (average) Wii U Pro Controller + £0 (come on!) T-Shirt = £250.

Out of stock Bayonetta 2 First Print Edition = £???. Current eBay price £100+.

Also available in 3 other bundles for a small, large and extra large version of the T-shirt:

it's a very peculiar way of getting your hands on the First Print Edition of Bayonetta 2, I'll grant you. but right now, it's probably one of the only ways to do it unless Game discover any more unsold copies.

people do odd things with their money! I never saw the point in the art book and fancy casing, but eBay people seem to think it's worth a fortune. I think the current chilly climate of the deal speaks volumes...

I used to be into the collecting games side of things, and you give it 12-18months this wont be worth anything!

I think its a good deal tbh lol

Wondered who would post this. Never saw it as a deal but a price breakdown would go like this.

Bayonetta 2 First Print Edition - £60 Min
Wii U Pro Controller - £30 Min
T-Shirt - £10
Console With Mario Kart - £199

So there is some savings to be had but nothing ground-breaking.

I was tempted by their Mario bundle last xmas (I think it was last xmas anyway), but didn't bite eventually for very much the same reason. when you do the sums you're not really saving a much, plus that hat was absolute ****.

Game Hold all pretty orders for 48 hours. There may be some bayonetta 2 first print which haven't been picked up by the end of today which will become fair game in the morning... Check your local stores and ask the staff if they have any.

I think you're thinking about 3rd party collecting where they are never limited. Nintendo collecting is different, things hold their value and most things have very finite numbers in circulation; with Nintendo stuff, when it's gone, it's gone.

Anyway, good deal I think and anyone pee'ed off with this is probably a scalper selling copies on eBay. Once people find out about this they realise they might as well buy this instead for Bayo First Print, then sell the console on.

Unlucky scalpers

I'm actually thinking it's a very clever way of Nintendo *cough* the hut *cough* to sell a few console bundles / get rid of those damned T-shirts.

You see, guys?!

Nintendo has more copies stored away of Bayonetta 2's First Print Edition and now they're charging way more. What a ripoff, at the end of the day it's just a glorified version of the Special Edition.

I'm still taking my chances on eBay with that too.

I am still trying to decide if i want a Wii U for crimbo lol but if i do i deffo want Mariokart 8 and Bayonetta doesn't do anything for me so it will be going on ebay so even if i sold it for the retail price this looks like a good deal for me especially with the controller or am i missing something?

depends how "into" reselling you are. eBay is flooded with Bayonetta 2 First Print's at the moment, £100 is an average selling price but then you've got fees to contend with. there's better deals out there for you --> this was a good recent example.

I keep thinking of Rebuying a WiiU (got rid due to the lull) but I can't help thinking a newer model is around the corner...

they only tend to do this with the popular consoles. if anything you'd see the same cost saving exercises you saw with the second generation Wii where they removed Gamecube compatibility or the second generation Gamecube where they removed the "Digital AV Out".

Yeah i did very nearly buy that and i still can't convince myself totally i need one to behonest. I am not into reselling it was just an option to get one with MArio Kart with a few extras in.

Even buying the one at shopto by time i have added in Mario Kart and another controller plus cradles etc there wouldn't be a great deal in it by my quick calculations??

I dunno...

You got a basic Wii U, Wii Party ,Nintendoland, Wii Remote and Bayonetta 1+2 all for 180 (well you did its gone up now lol)
Sell Nintendoland and Wii Party to Cex for £16 and put £9 towards Windwaker brings you to 189.
Add a 500GB hard drive for £27 quid from Tesco to 226.
Add a copy of Mario Kart 8 for 35 from Game collection to 251.
Pro controller from simply games for 35 brings you to 285

So by comparison thats a Wii U with a 500gb hard drive, a pro controller, a wii remote, Windwaker, Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 1+2 for 285 pound. Better deal if you ask me Can't argue with the first print of bayonetta here though haha

Thanks for your time on that one it is much appreciated. I am still torn haha. If and it is a big if i was to get say 85 after fees and delivery for the Bayonetta first print then it makes this deal look quite attractive with the extra few bits from the premium. hmm even as i type this i can't help but think you are right and now i am kicking myself for ot getting the shopto deal at a tenner cheaper the other day

If you're waiting for 500Gb or something, fuggetaboutit (Bayonetta 2 reference there).. Wii Us don't and will never house SATA hdds, and the cost of solid state storage at those sizes is astronomical... a 250Gb SSD is currently £75... Nintendo aren't about up the cost of Wii Us by that much when the customer can just buy a £35 500Gb USB HDD.

That Shopto deal is still one of the best Wii U deals there's ever been - even at a tenner more... you're getting the console, touchscreen controller, wii sensor bar, a Wiimote Plus and four games!

I urge anyone that manages to get hold of the First Print Edition of Bayonetta 2 to keep it sealed and away from sunlight and moisture. With only 15,000 in existence you're going to see sealed and mint copies of this game being worth A LOT in 20 years or more. Think of it as an investment for your future grandchildren. This is something you'll end up seeing in the future being worth well over a grand.

Thanks people, the ShopTo deal it is then!! will have a quick look for a code as you never know. Just wished i got it bought earlier lol
