You're brave putting up this deal after smyths did the same deal but with splatoon for £150 a few days ago! Cue time machine comments!
heat added, because i'm really beginning to believe we will never see this console drop below £150 new, for a console thats sold so poorly its kept its price amazingly well, but i do think if nintendo had taking a loss on it and reduced the price things could of been so different for this. as much as i want a switch i have a feeling it will be the wii u all over again, high demand first few months and then with the long droughts between the great games, interest soon died
Regardless of the other deal, this is still a Wii U, in stock, for less than £200. It should be hotter.
You would have to be insane to buy this over a Switch

at least it has a decent library of games, people will buy the switch and just like the wii u people will be waiting months for games to come out.
Stupid idea to buy this now

That's fine, Its going to take a long time to complete Zelda 100% X)

Yeah, oh no wait, you wouldn't, since there are actually some games to play on this, and it's cheaper.

I own a wii u ( as well as a ps4) and I do enjoy using it. I have to agree with a previous poster in that I have a feeling after initial high demand created by Nintendo through lack of supply the Switch could easily go the same way sales wise as the wii u. Personally from a cosmetic and aesthetic point of view I'm not over smitten with the switch. I'm certainly in no rush to swap my wii u for the Switch.

6 months because thats how long it was before the wii u had any good games after the launch ones
Cold, it's not a Switch
The Wii U had a brand new Mario, plus several big name franchises like COD, Mass Effect, etc at launch.

But it's cooler to just bleat the same nonsense as everyone else right?

Well Mario Deluxe comes out end of April and Splatoon between June - September. I think if you are a Nintendo/Zelda fan, Zelda is a console seller on its own.
I'll be playing Zelda on my Wii U over the weekend. If anything, it's the opposite of a console seller, this time around

Erm... not quite. You've got MK8 Deluxe, Lego City Undercover next month. Splatoon 2. A ton of eShop games. Others I don't know about.

And no way will be there long droughts between games like the WiiU. You've got all the development teams (from BOTH the WiiU and 3DS consoles) working on them. On the contrary, there will probably be more good games released than I can actually afford!

​How many AAA games are hitting the switch in the first month? Shouldn't take you long to be waiting on games. While the Wii U is a dead console. There's plenty to play..

It'll be stupid to get the Switch day one, just like the Wii U, and the 3ds. There was such a large dry period of no games on those two consoles. It'll be a tad better for the switch. But if 2rd party doesn't step up after year one. It'll be a Nintendo AAA game here and there... and the mass of Indie titles every month.

Tbh you're probably better of buying a ps4 over a Wii U, can be had for less and a larger library.

But if you own a ps4 or xbox one, then I'd pick a Wii U over the switch for year 1.

But will you be lying in bed, lounging in the conservatory or sitting on the toilet playing Zelda X)

Exactly as you stated you already have a Wii U, so I can see why you wouldn't buy a Switch.

Zelda is a solid reason for someone to buy a Switch, why wouldn't you spend an extra £70 to get the newer more intuitive console ?

I bought this three years ago for less than this price! How is it a deal?

Have to be insane to buy either

Because it's a well established fact on HUKD that the majority of us don't have access to a time machine.
I took up this deal. It was a no brained really. I know in the past it may of been cheaper. However I have had a nes snes nintendo 64 and Wii. I love my retro games which I have downloaded on to my wii. Plus all the others games and peripherals which I have bought for my wii can be used or transfered onto the wii u. I was going to get the switch for the new zelda however finding out that it was available for the wii u sealed the deal. I have a Ps3 /4 graphics maybe slicker and have a bigger library and better online resources. However you can't beat the game play on Nintendo games. Quality not quantity. Agree with many of the posters on here. Hang fire on the switch till it builds up its games library. In the meantime enjoy playing Zelda, Mario cart, Splatoon and all the other great nintendo titles.
