Nintendo never released proper Battle Mode stages and only being able to hold one item isn't enough.

Feel free to point to a cheaper place.

Can I borrow your time machine?
Its an awful deal. Ebay and gumtree also have cheaper second hand wii u's. So there you go, just type wii u in ebay and there is your pointer. The argos website also has a brand new zelda edition for the same price, it one ups this albeit that is still a poor deal considering past prices. £179 for a second hand wii u with one game is not a good deal and there are cheaper alternatives
And why'd you want to borrow a time machine? To go back in time and erase this freezing deal?

It's not 2nd hand, it's a refurb and comes with a 12 month guarantee. It's well known on here that Wii U refurbs are basically as good as new.

So where can you get it cheaper?

Gumtree =no warranty
Zelda edition = Barely any stock

You're speaking rubbish to put it politely.

You're not all there are you?
It's a good deal overall, yes it has been about the same price before for new but that's moot. Been meaning to get back to mk8, great game
OOS

You can get new with MK8 and Splatoon from amazon for £222.74 which seems a good deal
Out of stock now anyway, but I'd say this was a decent enough deal - my only hiccup would be wanting to see if it had any scratches.

Surely they didn't remove the ability to have projectile items hang behind you when you keep hold of the button allowing you to collect another item? oO

Or save yourself a few quid and get from Smyths for £219.99, been that price for a while.

Haven't shopped around as I have a Wii U, may even be a better buy elsewhere from the likes of Alza/Pixel if you don't mind a EU unit. This deal posted is probs better, if you don't mind a physical splatoon which is £20ish, your gonna save £20ish overall. A solely MK8 bundle might be more desirable to some too.

As nice as it is not to get red shelled 4 times consecutively I have to agree. The duel item aspect along with superior (but not perfect) and more enjoyable battle stages are why we still play MK7 in our house. It takes some doing that Nintendo have managed to evolve the battle mode by gradually making it worse with recent MK games. Keep it simple, MK64 style, problem solved?
This was a good deal. Refurbs end up on here with a similar price difference to new, so I don't understand why that would be a reason to vote cold. Still, not as bad as people voting cold on Xbox One deals just because they won the lottery in their local Tesco at ~£85

Don't forget Alza. Alza's offering 4 games with the Splatoon/MK8 (2 of which are these) bundle for £209.
Still OOS oO

You sound like the sort of person who loves to spend £1000 on a Justin Beaver ticket from a tout because its sold out and thats the cheapest price. Just because something is currently cheapest, doesn't mean its value for money. I hope you aren't the one who looks after finances in your house.

You seem to have pulled that out of thin air.....


Feel free to post a cheaper deal... Oh wait.....
Oh wait... This is out if stock... Oh wait there are still brand new zelda consoles in the uk for the same price.. Oh wait you prefer paying the same for a used one and justify it because you believe a refurb isnt more than a hand held hoover swept around the screw holes for an extra £50 instead of ebay. You fail

Im not all there because i gave a humorous reply to your rhetorical statement? Oh so when somebody rebuttals your idiocy you choose to use mental health issues as insults. You'll be using homophobic/ racist slurs next

First thing I found on eBay

2nd hand just like this, and can put the £30 saved to something else.

No need to thank me.

Ey? Yeah, you could put that £30 saving towards Mario Kart and a 12 month warranty that's already included with this one.

Refurbished means it's been sent back to Nintendo Tech Service and repaired, probably from being DOA, meaning it's basically new. Who knows how many hours that 'actual' 2nd hand one has been ragged for.

Where are there Zelda consoles for that price?

How is a Zelda console for collection in Inverness any good to me when I live in london?

You're not all there because you don't seem to understand the website you're using.
You post deals and people vote on them. If it's a good deal it gets hot (Like this deal) if it's a bad deal it gets cold; You'll understand when you eventually post a deal.

Just because something was cheaper in the past doesn't make the current price bad, it just makes it more expensive than it was in the past.

Do you only ever buy things at their record lows?
Ever bought any Shares or precious metals?
What about your pension? I guess you probably refuse to put any money into that because you got more for your money a few years ago?


It was the cheapest some one could have bought it for at that time; I've got no idea why you're struggling to understand that. Take a look at the Wii U prices for consoles and games, there's barely been a drop and many games have either held their value or have actually gone up in price.....
