With the release of the Switch and the Switch Lite, I don't think the Wii U console gets as much love these days as it deserves

I personally think it's still a fantastic little games console with a TON of top quality games - it's cheap, great for the kids and the games can be picked up for pennies (slight exaggeration, but not far off). CEX currently have the basic console for £65, perfect to pick up for younger ones to play on, or for an extra £13 you can pick up the 32gb variant). Ours is still used occasionally in the house (Mario 3D World) even though we have two Nintendo Switch consoles.

In short, I think there's worse ways to spend £65

I've had a little look around for pricing comparisons and it seems Music Magpie don't even sell them any more, so they're off the list - but an Amazon 3rd party seller has one for £80 which is the next best price I could find - saving 19%.

As we're being a tad retro (not quite to the retro-ness of the Atari 2600, but nonetheless retro) here's the official Wii U trailer from 2011

Come on now. The majority of the libraries listed by @Mark_Hickman aren’t even available to buy new. That would leave them having to buy second hand copies which Nintendo don’t see a penny from either. He’s not robbing anyone of any money here.

Pirating recent titles, he would be. 15 year old games that are not available new anymore? Nah, it’s fine.

Amazing console, got mine luckily from Cash convertors for £40(mint) but cex give you a 2yr warranty so worth the extra

I'd ALWAYS suggest visiting a CEX store to pick up hardware like this. It's great having the convenience of delivery, but some things certainly require your approval before purchase.
Are they much difference, better than the Wii original console ?
Music Magpie do still sell them, they just only list them when they have stock, so worth checking (though they've been around £90 recently)

The second screen in the large controller really makes a difference in some two player games as you don't need to split screen the TV., so no spying on the other player. Also good that you can play on it even if people are using the attached TV for something else.

Totally with you on this one. Nintendo still insists selling there consoles and first party games at a premium. No wonder hack teams are more determined to crack them.

Everything eh? Have a look at all my comments to see where I use the term SJW. While your at it tell me your definition of a social justice warrior
Awesome. Captain Toad and ZombiU are both great. I really enjoyed my WiiU but I sold for Switch. If you have the space for this, then go for it! Probably the most underrated console ever.

Yeah, I kinda got triggered for no reason on that...

My issue is with the recent releases, particularly when people try to justify it.

I always had problems getting Gamecube games to run on my Wii U, are you running the iso files straight off an external usb? I want to play some F-Zero GX and 1080 Avalanche, what a pity those games never received any sequels.

Let us know how you get on.

The funny thing with people comparing piracy to "boosting" high-end cars is that yeah, both happen all the time. Nintendo are a premium gaming company, Ferrari and Aston Martin are a premium car manufacturer. Both have products that are highly valued so are likely to be stolen. Both acts are illegal so what's your point? You want to see as many people prosecuted for pirating then have a go at that too.

Depends on how far the stock is, perk of buying online is you can get it delivered from far if you are willing to take the risk

I'm using teconmoon injector for gamecube and wii games rather than hacking the virtual wii, it kind of changes them to wiiu game files and then you can keep them on the same usb drive as wiiu backups.
