You will receive a free game even if Mario Kart 8 is in a bundle, digital or physical copy.

Hot! Missed out on the JL deal

asandino may be right. 8GB would probably fit one downloaded game okay, but struggle with more than that.

This is hot even so though! SD cards are cheap

It's download only for the free game promo...

Doesn't mention Mario kart in description though?

False advertising, speak to them and they should add it?

Its worth nothing that you get TWO wii remote plus controllers with this bundle.

One controller is included individually in the pack (which you can just see on the box behind the game pad), you also get another controller with the Wii U Party game

So this deal is for:
Wii U Basic
2x Remote Plus
Wii U Party
Just Dance 2014
Nintendo Land
Mario Kart 8
Free Game with MK8

Imo this is only marginally worse than the John Lewis deal, assuming you actually want the games/are prepared to sell them

Nice bundle!

Seems like a good price for this bundle considering it's was £185 on Amazon without Mario Kart 8 a while ago

Was tempting without Mario kart, but all this for 200, arguably better than hmv deal, since you'll need external storage for it anyway at some point. Hot, I'll bite

it also includes a stand for the Wii U Gamepad as part of Wii Party U! it's just a daft piece of plastic but I love it!

Says in Stock but MarioKart8 is not out yet.

I ordered this from Amazon (without Mario Kart) just over a week ago, anyone reckon they will refund or send the game for free?? oO

Edited by: "DelBoy_Tr0tt3r" 16th May 2014

where does it say MK8 is included? and as its in stock and available for delivery tomorrow it cant be included

Stunning deal. Again, act very quickly.

Can't save them on an SD card, the SD card is for Wii mode only. Though you can use a flash drive or a USB hard drive.

I believe it's because they were ready to put this listing up amazon.co.uk/Bas…PP8

But instead changed this?

I'm wondering if Nintendo has issued some official notice on basic units to uk retailers what with this and the John Lewis one. Sounds like the white 32Gb might be launching and they want the 8Gb model cleared from shelves to save (yet more) consumer confusion.

Only a theory but worth watching other retailers too.

I'm totally doing this.

Whoops. Just bought this and now can't cancel the Tesco Premium I ordered 2 weeks ago

I didn't think the basic pack has the Wii sensors etc.

From Nintendo you only get about 3GB of space.

Can you install games to SD cards or would you need external hdd's? From another Nintendo link:

"For Wii U, SD Cards can be used for saving a picture of your Mii and QR Code patterns for your Mii, but not as an external storage device for Wii U software. SD Cards can, however, be used in Wii mode to save data for Wii games. This data is managed through the Data Management feature in Wii mode. SD cards are also used to transfer data from Wii to Wii U."

Amazon CS are usually pretty good but I suppose I can always order and send back (original order) without mario kart if they don't refund.

I've heard that the Wii U might even drop to as low as £100 for the basic bundle and implement a PS+ style subscription for classic games, as Nintendo refuse to give up on the console.

Just spoke to Amazon CS online chat and they confirm MK8 IS NOT included with this

This is actually a custom basic bundle that includes a Wii Remote Plus and sensor bar in the box (as well as Wii Party U and now Mario Kart 8 ). it normally wouldn't be included as you mentioned.

Hmmm. So keep an eye on that link then, the description reads the same as the one posted originally but with MK8. Let's hope it's £200 or there abouts!
