I just noticed the white basic model is 179.99 with 3 free games,

If you've picked this up, do add your Nintendo Network ID to the HUKD Wii U owners thread - hotukdeals.com/mis…883 and let's connect on Miiverse

this is far better offer than that 3 poor games vs 2 very good games that will retain a bit of value

wii u premium deals : the 3 games will get you £18 in exchange vouchers at cex ,whilst the one game lego marvel will get you £22 in exchange.

Decent deal, nice find.

Does it come with Zelda? Or is that just the photo?

Looks like just the picture unfortunately

I'm wondering that as well. Op's description makes no mention of Zelda. Picture is misleading

Doesn't come with Zelda, it's just the normal Wii U premium.

Poor deal. There were better offers in 2013 and this offer is based on the fact that most places are out of stock and people are desperate to get their hands on it.

Its a good deal. Premium console plus two games and local pickup for £200. Nintendo land is a great fun game with all the classic characters. Luigi's mansion ghost hunt is my favourite!

Great deal.. If they had the console in stock where I am

If anyone wants to sell Marvel for £20, please let me know and we can set up a thread.

Matt

you cant get lego marvel super heroes any cheaper than £30.99,so this is a good deal if you can get it now.

Placed order On console But Game oos ? Any ideas

Yeh I want to know too, I got ttwo local store with one of each in stock, it sucks! Is it possible to collect a the Wii U from one store, and the Marvel game at another?

Well technical power, they are probably pretty ****, it can barely hold its own with technology released over seven years ago, and is lightyears behind ps4 and xboxone. That aside however, the quality and playability of the games is second to none.

(bought a ps4, didnt even unwrap it having read the reviews of the first generation games, sold it. Bought an xbox one on day one, with forza. Great to look at, but ultimately boring. Killer instinct? snore snore snore. There was literally nothing else of even the slightest appeal either available or on its way anytime soon.

Xbox one sold. Now looking for a wii u, having picked up a 3dsxl cheap on black friday with mariokart and mario 3d, and had more fun with those games than i have had in years.

Looking forward to both wii u versions of these games.

Like yourself I sold off my whole xbox 360 console and games collection to buy a wii u mario+luigi bundle (shopto's black friday deal) because got bored of playing games that are more or less the same as each other and not regretting the decision I made.

Lately been playing pikmin 3 and loving it to bits! The games that I bought for the wii u are varied style of games: wind waker hd (adventure), pikmin 3 (strategy), super mario 3d world (3d platforming), monster hunter 3 ultimate (action adventure), zombiu (survival horror), nintendo land (family multiplayer), rayman legends (2d platforming), mass effect 3 (action rpg) and black ops 2 (fps, just to see how the wii remote is fully utilised with a fps game).

I also cannot wait for DK Country Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8 and Monolith's X

Just started replaying me3 this time on the PC and I'm really missing the always on map I used to have on the wii u. Simple and dull-sounding feature but a very useful one nonetheless. Mapped squad abilities and directing squad movements on the Gamepad screen mean that me3 was more of a team game for me while the pc was more of a solo effort where squad was only useful as additional targets

ive got this reserved at manchester fort . premium and lego game. until store closes tomorrow . ive changed my mind ,if someone wants it i will give you reservation code. give email address and i will send you argos email.

You can also choose the 3 games, Rabbids land, NBA"K13 and Sports connections for free instead of Lego marvel, but as someone mentioned these are worth less if you decide to trade them in later.

Nice deal so heat added.

However, it does amuse me when people state something is "free" in such instances, i.e. game 'x' is free, honestly it is. You just need to spend nearly £200 but the game is definitely free!

Just to add to the above; I got my son a Wii U in November for his birthday. It is a really pleasant playing experience, great games (not sure which were launch titles and which aren't, we have the Mario and Luigi games, Batman, Disney Infinity and a few others). The interface is really nice it's a great little family console (and the owner of the console, if he/she is a child, will always feel that extra bit special, in a "king of the caste" kind of way, being able to have the ultimate controller while the rest of us proles have normal controllers).

Just before Christmas I got an Xbox One (I was going to wrap it up, but I only have a couple of weeks off and time was of the essence so it got opened a few days earlier) mainly for me, but also for the kids to play on. By complete coincidence I got the top 3 listed games on Metacritic (FiFa came with the console, I bought NBA 2K14 as I'm a massive NBA fan, and I got Forza 5 for Christmas). Every where I go in almost every game (FiFa is the LEAST guilty!) it is demanding more and more money. My GM mode in NBA 2K14 has replaced association mode, it's like every action requires VC (virtual currency), you jump into My Team and you need more VC, and of course My Player, EVERYTHING is VC; stats, clothes, abilities, skills, etc. And this version of Forza has obviously been stripped down to sell you the season pass/DLC (including launch day DLC), with very small amounts given for winning races. The message is clear: grind it out or spend £££! Each time you accidentally go over your points total in either game you are taken straight to a page to buy more. Spend, spend, spend.

It is amazing how oppressive it makes gaming feel. I hope to hell this isn't a sign of things to come. They (next-gen consoles) look promising (and I say that as someone with a highish-end gaming PC), especially when you consider what the launch titles of the Xbox 360 now look like compared to today's games. But, if this constant nagging for money at every turn is on every title I'll simply flog the thing and buy a top of the range graphics card (and do hand me downs with my sons!).

In a week I went from waking up, drinking a coffee and being on the XB1 from morning until night, to going back to the PC during the day (and during the Steam sale) and playing a mix of Wii U/XB1 games of an evening.

Going back to FiFa; I think they've (EA - the evil empire!) realised through trial and error how much they can get away with on the micropayment front (even giving the game away on tablets; with a generous amount of game which doesn't require micropayment). Now they have locked micropayments into the Ultimate Team mode and the rest of the game is micropayment/transaction free. It seems to work well for all parties (those who hate micropayments/additional DLC,etc (like me), and those who are willing/able to spend hundreds of pounds on digital **** extensions). When EA start to look like the good guys you know something is seriously wrong!

Jumping into multiplayer on NBA 2K14 (a game I own 3 times now!) and seeing half the players max levelled through buying VC was massively disappointing (and a serious disincentive to spending how ever many hours it would take to grind to level 99). Accidently choosing to upgrade a stat 7 times instead of 6 and being taken to the payment page for the Nth time that day is soul crushing. It ruins the whole gaming experience (and, of course, I haven't even mentioned the lack of basic apps for the Xbox One yet; family media center?? The Xbox 360 was better at that job at launch than the XB1 is!).

The experience starts the second you turn a console on. You turn a Wii U on and it is full of people you know (and don't know!) all telling you about their games, how good they are, which levels they've completed, or what they are doing at that moment, like revisiting old friends. You turn the Xbox one on and it is full of tiles which exist for the pure purpose of selling you something (a game, a service, etc).

So yes, the Wii U is underpowered, there is more current-gen about it than next-gen, and it is never going to be as shiny as the Xbox One/PS4. So, why should buy one, right now, this very second? There are better games, a better gaming experience and a cheaper gaming experience waiting in the form of the Wii U than either of the next-gen consoles. The next-gen consoles will be cheaper in a few months, have less hardware faults and (hopefully!) plenty of titles to choose from, the Wii U will remain a great second console with totally different types of exclusive (to the Xbox One/PS4 - who's exclusives nearly always have a counterpart of the opposite console). The PS4/XB1 are in direct competition to on another (and to PCs), the Wii U isn't in competition to any of them, it is a perfect accompaniment (to a PS4/XB1/PC) for every gamer (young or old).

One of the best read's I have done when it comes to comparing how it is out there in gaming world right now! Loved it!

My daughters (8 & 7 years old) were watching me playing Super Mario 3D World the other day and when they saw Mario don the Cat Suit, they were like "Wow look at Mario! He's a cat! He moves like a real cat! Daddy can we have a go!" Absolutely priceless! X)

My boy (22 months old) puts on a big smile whenever he sees Mario (me playing) on our TV and mimics the sounds Mario makes! Been playing Nintendo Land with the girls and I think it's a brilliant way to introduce Nintendo's AAA games to those who have never played them before on the older consoles. For eg after the girl's played the Zelda and Pikmin mini-games, they always ask me if they have a go on Wind Waker HD and Pikmin 3. That's the Nintendo magic!

Now you tell me how Nintendo have lost their mojo when you read comments from specific types of gamers that are always slagging off Nintendo...

because theres hardly any games. saying the console is s*****te misses the point really. although if i were to buy next gen i would probably buy a wii u or ps4 because they are both going to have exclusives that wont get relesed on pc.

Yeah, but that's not true anymore is it. It's just an ignorant view. It has far, far, far, far more games for it than 2 other consoles that got market recently. Average out the exclusives and tally up the review scores and the Wii U offers a gaming experience that towers above those consoles, and will do for some time, all at a much better price.

Although this might be the better deal around right now... I'd wait for a good £199 deal again with Mario/Luigi it must come up again today or tomorrow!

Great price and console. As a PC gamer this offers more choice for games that are exclusive than the two new machines. It's had a year head start to knock out some big hitters, though.

my children are looking at buying one with their Christmas money. Can you buy the remote with screen separately?

Its included with the console, plus every game so far only supports one GamePad. Although the system is capable of supporting 2 gamepads. If the GamePad breaks you will have to import one from Japan since that is the only place they are sold separately. But do note that they are pricey at roughly £89/$150.
