Irrespective of the price of this console I think waiting until next year whilst everyone else beta tests the slow and clunky GUI and Nintendo start pumping out the games they're known for before buying it.

What a great price! I love Amazon, I'm a prime member and couldn't give a monkey's whether or not they pay corporation tax. If only those in Westminster showed the same morality as the anti-amazon bores when it comes to spending our taxes....

Wii Who?

With Pikmin 3 coming out next month I'm very tempted.

The Wii U as a whole is a rip off in my opinion. The games on it are mostly 360/PS3 ports. There's only really Monster Hunter Ultimate worth buying. For the cherry on the top the good games they announced at E3 are releasing in 2014 when the console should have a price drop anyway.

I hope im proven wrong but I think the Wii U is doomed to fail.

All of the big publishers are staying away and Zombi U, the killer app for the machine lost money.

ASDA are selling this for the same price... but Amazon are giving FREE NEXT DAY DELIVERY!

I assume that's because you're a prime member? flubit have offered 185 which is pretty shiny. That was for Asda going to see if they'll drop Amazon any lower.

Great deal! Ordered mine. Can no longer resist Mario Bros.

I think I will wait for a £129 price tag with Mario Kart 8 included sometime next summer before even considering buying one of these.

Don't hate the players, hate the game

I've voted hot, but personally wouldn't buy one of these at £100 never mind £200.

Amazed they are still selling these. Honestly if you are a fan of Nintendo or not the Wii U has been an epic fail. Combined sales of wii and wii u are around a third of the ps3 and half the 360 worldwide. These are 7 - 8 year old consoles at the end of the day and they are not even that much cheaper.

Virtually no third party support and xbox one and ps4 are out in a few months. The wii u is nintendos Dreamcast at this rate they will end up a software only business like sega within a few years.

I was a massive fan if Nintendo until the wii. I was scorned with a launch wii and got so fed up after months of waiting for games I went and got a 360 and later a PS3. This console is in the same boat at the moment, when the big games come I will get one no doubt however I am firmly in Sony's camp now and will likely remain there with PS4. Whilst I love Nintendo's big franchises they are becoming stale, where's that Nintendo innovation?

They alientated people like me; former NES and (still) SNES owner and one of the minority that was keeping them afloat buying N64 (still have it too) and Gamecube whilst everyone was buying Playstation and Xbox (360 and PS3 are my fist consoles by MS and Sony). It's only nostalgia that keeps me playing Nintendo now. I wish they would release a proper beast of a console instead of cheap gimmicky crap. Last good Nintendo console was the Gamecube.

I was never a fanboy though, loved sega too From Mega Drive to Dreamcast (my all tipme favourite console I also still own).

Mario, Sonic and Master Chief at the 2016 Rio Olympics is coming.

Nintendo are my childhood heroes since the NES & Gameboy era, but I really hope they've got some fresh, new franchises in the works that ultimately stick around.

Go for Amazon and use the 5% to charity link? £10 going to charity is better then nothing.

£200 for this piece of junk with a timeline of next year for a handful of games to be released that should have been either during launch or a few months later. A year later in the era of XBOX One & PS4? No thanks, I've moved away fro cathode ray tube sets and onto HD, I'll be doing the same with inferior consoles to the latest ones

Good deal, don't forget to check top 10 Wii U games to see all the games released so far

Why does everyone seem to think that the wii u will drop in price after their big games drop?! Maybe I'm the mad one but that makes no sense! Like 'hey now you actually want the console we'll knock fifty quid off'." Getting really bored with the standard wii u has no games malarkey... Yes it was fluffed by nintendo on release... But the negativity is what kills consoles... People expecting 300 AAA titles off the bat or a console is pointless, same thing happened with the vita, the 3DS, the ps3 etc etc remember this? http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/320/036/36a.jpg [rant over] anyway, i have some amazon vouchers so was hoping they would price match, am now sorely tempted to get this for the windwaker which I missed the first time round, so have some heat.

New Super Mario Bros U is only £18 in Asda too (along with Zombi U and Nintendoland). Saw it in store at Asda Living Dartford this morning.

Glad to see some people with the same opinion as me on here. No one hates Nintendo (how can you), but you can hate their hardware, they are completely isolated from true 'next gen', even current gen. It's a shame for many hardcore gamers, especially as Nintendo have such strong focus on good gameplay.

He meant at the moment not overall -__-
At the moment the Wii hasn't has a good release since Zelda SS and the Wii U isn't doing much better. The Wii's sale figures have plummeted over the last couple of years.

Ordered. Mostly just to play Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem.

love this whole 'hardcore' gamers and being 'backstabbed' by the wii. its a seriously hilarious narrative thats so out of touch. theres tonnes of GREAT wii games if you want to dust off your wii or play on the wiiu with backwards compat. all cheap now or 2nd hand. just gotta be a lil more open. (obvs not commenting on the pretty light wiiu library, just the wii here)

Most people can only justify one console purchase per generation. If you only picked one and went for a Nintendo you are severely limited. That's the main reason people grumble.

If you are happy to over spend and buy more than one console then good for you.

disagree about limited. money constraints are true but 100mil wiis 75mil xbox and 75 mil ps3 doesnt sound like many got stuck with 1 either. and this doesnt mean there isnt games for peoples with wiis to not play.. just have to accept a non-brown modern shooter fps.
but yes, my condolences to people who bought a wii expecting skyrim, ME and bulletstorm (it got lots of cod though).

but anyway this is off topic - just the victim elitism complex annoys me so much.

Which it achieve only recently, the Wii had sold more unit up until end of last month.

The WiiU will make a good second or third console once the exclusives start getting released (or maybe it's fifth console it you decide to keep you PS3 and 360) 'You only buy Nintendo consoles for Nintendo games', and that message has never been clearer as it has been with the WiiU, no one else is releasing games on it.
