Be aware that this Basic Wii U of 8GB is the American NTSC edition so it will not play PAL/UK Wii U games but it's good for someone who wants to own an American region Wii U, though.

this gets me thinking...... could you use a Wii U NTSC base unit and hook up your own Wii U PAL Gamepad to it?

A scratched 'Used - Good' condition console with the only option to play NTSC games at £102, seems somewhat limited does it not?

Nintendo made the Wii U GamePad region locked too.

Nintendo sure loves region locking everything they can.

Yeah.

If you have a Japanese region 3DS / Wii U and if you're in Europe, US, Australia or etc you can access because it's from that region.

So I guess you could play Captain Toad sooner than the rest of us.

That's pretty cool.

I already paid £25.15 for it so I'll just keep my order now and wouldn't want it for £29.99 anyway.

I'm so tempted to pay £29.99, just to have it for my time off work over Christmas! Been looking forward to this game for a while.

My thoughts exactly! Have preordered from GAME, whichever gets despatched first I keep. It's worth an extra fiver to have it over Christmas when I'm not in the office.

I wish I had got an NTSC one. (Proper versions of DKC2 / A Link to the Past / Super Metroid). All digital games are cheaper. (Not interested in the fan noise). Stuff released in a more timely manner. Not sure I trust zoverstocks definition of good though.

Their definition of "good" and "very good" varies from good to excellent to actual brand new (if you're really lucky).
