Found 3rd Jul 2013
Not a bad deal, It's preowned but there's warranty with Nintendo till November 30th and 12 Months from date of purchase with GAME.

You might be lucky and have some downloaded games from the previous owner as games are tied to the system not the account.

CODE : vcukjul13

A remade WII title that is also on the 3DS is the "best" Wii U title?, You do know how stupid that sounds right? You love your Wii U cause you can play a Wii game on it that runs just as well on a bloody handheld.

Not the point, the fact the best version of a "Wii" game is in his opinion the best game on a "Next Gen" system just shows why the Wii U is such a catastrophic failure.

So it's simply a game from the Wii and it's the best game on Wii U because some guy said so.

Well, maybe it's the guy who reviewed it on Eurogamer and gave it 9/10.

Get a clue... Columbo.

I have seen people on monster hunter with over 600 hours, haven't seen a ps3/ Xbox game rack up that many hours, well maybe COD but they are the same game over and over again... Hmm I see a trend.


We are all entitled to our opinion but I like to try someone before passing judgement .
Reser you really should play monster hunter, it may sway YOUR opinion.

I bought a Wii U last week, very happy with it as far, love the controller, and the fact that I can play Assasins Creed while the other half is watching the telly. Not sure why the Wii U. threads always get such hatred, nothing has changed since people were arguing about Spectrums and Commodore 64s.

I have it, on my 3DS, Not going to buy a Wii U console to play a friggen last gen game like morons like you.

Sell your Wii U get it for the Wii, if thats the best game you have for the Wii U whats the point having the Wii U.

All so dumb you miss the point over and over, did I ever debate the game was good, I debated the fact people saying that its the BEST game for the Wii U when its a **** WII game.

If a Wii game ported to the WiiU is getting seen as the best game it says volumes about the quality of "actual" WiiU games, that is my point.

WiiU fanbois are some of the worst I have ever seen, the console is so awful they rabbidly clutch at any ridiculous straws they can find to justify their purchase. This is one of the worst I have seen yet, "I can play my Wii game on it" ..christ.

Edited by: "Reser" 3rd Jul 2013

you can usually guess a persons age quite well on this site.

Wait I'm confused- a very successful game which isn't a wii u game from ground up is incredible on the wii u, so a console that has a very successful game is a catastrophe?

Imagine what a monster hunter built for wii u can do- still a catastrophe?

I concur that wii u is nothing like Xbox one/ps4 but it is half the price.

Again reser you haven't played it on wii u, or ever played a wii u. Monster hunter tri and monster hunter ultimate, while very similar games ultimate is miles ahead of tri and with the amount of new content it feels like a new game. Granted they could have made more graphical improvements but for me what the mountains and the grass look like are the last things on my mind when hunting.

It's not a straight port. Why don't you just sell it on your 3DS and get the Wii version too??? Duhhhhh !! duh duh duh DUHHHH.

Why MH3U isn't a simple port like Columbo tries to make out. Damn Nintendo fans with their factual info ruining bored trolls' fun... DAMN THEMMMMM.

As these are new monsters to the Tri player, I will not elaborate on their subspecies.

S U M M A R Y
Technically, this is an expansion of Tri, but it is an amazing one at that. 4 new weapon types, 11 completely new unique monsters, and in total over 50 monsters including rare and elusive subspecies with different attack pools and habitats, and dozens of new armors and weapons to collect make this the 'ultimate' hunting experience.

lol. Volcanic Armadillo.

yep, this is an utter horror show.

Well said MadeInBeats.

So if a wii game is the best game on wii u then the wii u is bad right ? What if I said my favourite 360 game was halo anniversary that's the same thing right ? The big flaw in your point is that you're assuming games get better every generation which couldn't be further from the truth. No game this generation has matched ocarina of time. Launch that remade in hd on wii u, Xbox 360 and ps3 and it would be the best game on all 3 by a long mile.

And i don't even like monster hunter, just had to point out how idiotic and no sensical your point is

Amazing how bad reser managed to make himself look.

Thanks, saved my son £10 with the code, he'll probably spend it on sweets though.

Umm, I'd make a complaint about that, Kerry. I can't see anywhere that it says pre-owned doesn't come with everything the new one does. Let the box slide, maybe, but not Nintendo Land.

Get on the phone and emails, maybe they could arrange you pick a Nintendo Land up at one of their stores if you press the issue.

OH, it might be pre installed on the hard drive you know! See if the icon is on the apps homepage screen on the touch screen controller. Failing that they may have formatted the hard drive - look through the eShop and see if it's already been purchased, if it has you will be able to download it again for free.

Go to the eShop and press Y for menu, then hit Account Summary then look in Downloaded Titles to see if anything is in there. Games are tied to the console, not accounts, so any games the previous owner downloaded, you will be able to download again for no cost to you.

Good luck, hope you find some stuff in there.

nope no downloaded titles gonna phone them re nintendoland.

Same here, my son is climbing up the walls with summer holidays (Scotland) a wii u and no games to play.

Contacted Game, and they claim it was in the product description. It wasn't, so I'm not letting it slide.

>Contacted Game, and they claim it was in the product description. It wasn't, so I'm not letting it slide.
Just to clarify, Game say the product details included:
"Please Note: The preowned Black Wii U Premium Console does not include Nintendo Land."

That wasn't in the description of the product I ordered.

On the plus side, my son is now playing outside.
