It does state in the description the game will not be included which is a shame. No real information on the description too so it's a bit of a gamble. Decent enough price though if it comes complete and in relatively decent condition
If its the pre-installed bundle then should be ok even if been reset found this out yesterday.

Yeah, it's a bit odd that. The one I got from Grainger was in tip top condition but as with all preowned consoles it's pot luck.
Easy to mod though.
Better getting one off a selling site if buying secondhand. Managed to get one with three games and extra controllers for £70 last year in new condition.

Not necessarily. I bought a Smash Bros pack and it wasn't on there (they didnt advertise it as such though). I think they all get wiped/formatted before sale.

Am I allowed to mention I’m selling one in excellent condition?

Just because it is wiped/formatted doesn't mean the game isn't there. The 3DS and Wii U games are tied to console ID as far as I remember. If you go to the eshop they should still appear under downloads unless the user transferred their profile before trading in and carried all their digital purchases across.

Didn't know that. Top piece of info that, I thought it was like Playstation and your gamertag/purchases
Just to add my experience - I got a second hand Mario Kart bundle off a well known auction website that had been wiped clear and was still able to download MK8 as a new user
I just picked one up off gumtree this morning. £120 all boxed with Mario kart, splatoon, super smash bros & pokken tournament
The Wii U I have had Mario Kart 8 Preinstalled and after a format it’s still there. But never assigned a NNID to it
Prob get a box with a brick inside knowing these cowboys 🐎
Great price, heated. If Nintendo had tried officially applying this price before it's death they might have got a few more years out of it. I was never a fan of the Gamepad but the console does have enough good games to make it worth buying, especially at this price...

This wii u i got yesterday was wiped and dreaded I'd lost it but after going through initial setup it showed up on main screen.

From the launch of the Wii U, Nintendo made a loss on each console sold so it wouldn't have been possible for them to reduce it all the way to this price.

Sure it would, PS3 and Xbox 360 hit that price eventually as most consoles do. Things don't cost the same to manufacture forever you know, consoles are more expensive to make when they first come out then get cheaper as processes and yields improve and can benefit from scale savings if they make enough.

Plus the real profit has always been from games, traditionally a console manufacturer is considered to have done well if they break even on the sale price of a console. Nintendo is alone in expecting to make a profit on console sales. It hurt them badly on Wii U, somehow they are getting away with it on Switch, but I think the bubble will pop eventually as £280 is massive money for the spec of the Switch...
