Wii U Console, 32GB Premium Black (No Game), Discounted

Introducing The Wii U Premium


Discover a wealth of exciting new ways to enjoy home entertainment with Wii U, Nintendo's next home console. With a revolutionary new touch screen controller, precision motion controls, and full HD graphics, a whole new world of play styles and gaming possibilities is on the horizon. The time is coming to truly expand your idea about what a game console is - and can be.

A New Wii Console Experience

According to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, "Wii U redefines the structure of home entertainment by fundamentally changing how the TV, the game console and the Internet function and interact together," he continues, "The experience enabled by Wii U and its new controller takes players deeper into their games, while reaching out wider than ever before to be inviting to all kinds of gamers."

Wii U combines motion-sensing gameplay with the ability to support full HD graphics. Each Wii U console will be paired with a new groundbreaking controller, with its 6.2-inch wide screen. Previously, video games played on a home consoles have been confined to the TV and offered identical viewpoints to each player in a multiplayer environment. The Wii U controller enhances that experience with different viewpoints available in-game and in differing games/game situations. Also, watching TV and playing console games have been completely separate experiences. The new controller removes these boundaries, creating a more dynamic and fluid gaming and entertainment experience.

Examples of this new functionality include:

  • Within Single Player Games:
    • While in-game the new controller can display information on its screen that does not appear on the TV
    • The information and viewpoint can also change in the new controller based on the orientation of its gyroscope
  • Within Multiplayer Games:
    • The player using the new controller can have a different experience than those looking at the TV creating a wider variety of competitive and cooperative opportunities

The New Controller


In addition to its 6.2-inch screen, the new controller also features an accelerometer and a gyroscope, a rumble feature, an inward-facing camera, a microphone and speakers. Adding these features to the Classic Controller button scheme -- two analog Circle Pads, +Control Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons -- will enable a breadth of gameplay experiences while appealing to both casual and dedicated video game players. The Wii U system can also use up to four additional Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus controllers and is backward compatible to all Wii games and all Wii accessories. The Wii console has sold more than 86 million units globally and greatly expanded the overall audience for video games. Wii U aims to expand that audience even further.

Features:

  • Console Size - Approximately 1.8-inches tall, 6.8-inches wide and 10.5-inches long.
  • New Controller - The new controller incorporates a 6.2-inch, 16:9 touch screen and traditional button controls, including two analog circle pads. This combination removes the traditional barriers between games, players and the TV by creating a second window into the video game world. The rechargeable controller includes a power button, home button, +control pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons. It includes a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, rumble feature, camera, a microphone, stereo speakers, a sensor strip and a stylus.
  • Other Controls - Up to four Wii Remote (or Wii Remote Plus) controllers can be connected at once. The new console supports all Wii controllers and input devices, including the Nunchuk controller, Classic Controller, Classic Controller Pro and Wii Balance Board.
  • Media - A single self-loading media bay will play 12-centimeter proprietary high-density optical discs for the new console, as well as 12-centimeter Wii optical discs.
  • Video Output - Supports 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i. Compatible cables include HDMI, component, S-video and composite.
  • Audio Output - Uses AV Multi Out connector. Six-channel PCM linear output through HDMI.
  • Storage - The console will have internal flash memory, as well as the option to expand its memory using either an SD memory card or an external USB hard disk drive.
  • CPU - IBM Power-based multi-core microprocessor.
  • GPU - AMD Radeon-based High Definition GPU.
  • Other - Four USB 2.0 connector slots are included. The new console is backward compatible with Wii games and Wii accessories.

Don’t tempt me, it’s been less than a year since I sold my Wii U to Cex... I really don’t need one @nihir

*subconscious reminds me I still have a copy of Breath of the Wild I was planning on using an emulator on...*

Agh!

Unboxed means it is complete. Discounted means it’s missing something like an included HDMI cable, charging cable etc.

Unboxed is no box (surprise there eh?) but condition is usually very good.

Discounted is someone has taken a hatchet to the console and/or gamepad.

Allegedly discounted can be used for non official cables but not in cases I've seen, the condition for discounted is usually awful but it will work.

Sorry. @Richard_Richard is spot on here. Seems CEX have changed their stance since I last looked.

Got this from the website.

Games consoles are graded as one of the following:

  • Boxed - Good to Mint Condition. All essential accessories. Original, first party controller of matching colour. Official box with all inserts to ensure safe transit.
  • Unboxed - As above, just without the box.
  • Discounted - Any condition but must be fully working. Chips, dents and scratches acceptable providing function is not impeded. All essential accessories, any controller. Box not required.

You shouldn’t have the “any controller” issue mind as there are no third party WiiU gamepads.

Thank you, probably worth paying the extra £5 for unboxed
Great value for.money once you open it up to the world of Homebrew and GameCube/n64/Wii games etc... All my games run from a hard drive.. absolutely superb, little lad loves it.

Wrong console chief. Wii U is exploitable on Latest Firmware
Switch is recommended to stay on as low a version as possible in order to get exploits and CFW sooner

Any good guides/videos to configure the Wii U to play our 'backup' games?
Does anyone know if you can play the emulation stuff on just the controller screen?

Lego city undercover
all mario games
now to sell my 8gb wiiu
Bought one today, they had a Zelda controller one (which I guess may have had the zelda game built in) but the console was a bit of a state, quite scratched and loads of marks around the ports at the back. I bought the other one they had. another black one with standard gamepad but it looks hardly used just a few light marks on the console. Plugged it in and it has mariokart 8 built in - happy days.
and they wouldn't let me swap the gamepads
The one i bought is banned from the eShop.

Contact Nintendo with proof of your second hand purchase (ie receipt) and they will sort that out.
Brilliant console with a decent array of games. I can recommend:

Exclusives:
Super Mario 3D World
Twilight Princess HD
Wind Waker HD
Super Mario Bros U
Game & Wario
Super Mario Maker (also on 3DS)
Yoshi's Woolly World

Also available on Switch:
Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe)
Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker

Available on other consoles
Rayman Legends

It also has the Virtual Console which allows you to play older Nintendo titled from SNES to N64. You can also use Wii discs and I believe GameCube discs (?).

Great console, extremely underrated. I still play it when I have friends round. Mario 3D World and Game & Wario are a ball with friends.

RIP Wii U.
Edited by: "ggchris" 25th May
How does the virtual console thing work then? If it means paying again for games I have bought in the past then I'm out.
It was and is a very underrated console with some very good games. And once unlocked it becomes a one stop retro game solution.
