Found 3rd Aug 2014
Went to the Winnersh store to take advantage of my other Wii U deal, like the price on line the in store price for this has been reduced from £249.99 to £209.99.

For those that missed the online deal, might be worth having a look in your local store.

Was in a bit of a hurry so didn't think to take a picture of the box, however couple of people in the online deal thread said they've found this in their local store so it seems this is a national deal.

Better not forget to credit iSM4SHxYOUx for finding the original online deal that almost hit 1000o

Thanks for putting the credit to me, I did post a comment asking if the thread could be changed from online to instore but I guess that wasn't possible?

Don't hog all the heat for yourself

But seriously not sure if you can edit expired deals or you need to first report to get it unexpired by a mod then edit it to in store, also not too sure how it'd work as the deal was originally on line. Been a member for over 4 yrs but don't post too many deals, most of the times things I'm interested in are posted before I get the chance.

Seems a helpful helper/mod has put in a pic but it's to the wrong bundle, the one in the pic is for the new super mario bros u/new luigi bros u bundle while this deal is for the mario kart 8 bundle.

Cue all the negative comments towards the Wii U or will the be there some respite from it all (I doubt it!)...

Well did get a "the wii u is a deal console" comment in my other wii u bundle deal thread, so I'm expecting at least one negative comment towards Nintendo/the console as it seems to be an unwritten law(I.e there cannot be a wii u deals thread be it a game or console deal where the isn't at least one negative comment).

I worked there on the checkouts between 1999-2001, what didn't you like about it?

Got it from Rayleigh, Essex in store. Thanks

£209.99 seems a lot for one game!

12 hours into this deal and not a single one of the usual anti-Nintendo or Wii U comments!?!?! Apart from the 'forgot to count the console in' comment...then again it can be counted as the usual 'no games on the Wii U' comment...:p

I hope that comment was in response to rimz,

I am considering getting a Wii U primarily for some more child friendly games I can play with the kids.

What is Wii U like in terms of access to older games? Does it have much in terms of NES/SNES/n64 titles available?

Just spotted this in my nearest branch in Whitechapel London E1...

Great for all age groups and you can play the entire Wii games collection as it is backwards compatible. If you shop around you're bound to find really good deals on Wii games.

Via Wii U's eshop, you can download and play most of the NES and SNES games, but they're slowly adding more games and making them work with the gamepad. You can pay with normal £ currency in the Wii U eshop.

N64 games aren't available yeton the Wii U's eshop, but via the Wii shop channel in the Wii mode (on the Wii U), you have access to all the virtual console NES/SNES/N64 games. You will need to buy Wii Nintendo points in order to buy via the Wii mode though. If you have a Wii and bought games via the virtual console, you can transfer them over to the Wii U also.

Thanks for the pic, as I said I was in a hurry so didn't think about taking one. I was in a hurry that I forgot to check if they have any nowtv with 3 months movie passes left, I doubt they do but should have checked while I was there.

Amazing system, and an amazing game.

I al getting a tad frustrated with some of the 'glitches' in the online battle mode, if you play it you will know what I am talking about, but it is a small price to pay for a great game that I can safely play with my children watching.

Have to say it Rimz, I don't really like posts like these. It's basically a red rag to a bull and almost seems like you're spoiling for conflict.

Was trying to see if it does the trick...;) it's normally when you keep quiet they come out, but once they see you're ready and waiting for them, I think it causes a little do I or don't I...plus I think because we respond in a non-fanboy-ish way compared to other fanboys out there, it's like we're dousing the fire they're trying to cause all the time...whilst the other two normally go hammer and tongs at each other!

Out of stock online will check my local. Thanks

Thanks for the picture - do you know what street the Sainsburys is on? I might get the number and see if I can John Lewis price match it. Cheers

Good find & good deal, title & image cleaned up.

Correct me if Im wrong but hasnt the free game deal with Mario Kart expired at the end of July. That's lost some of it's hotness from me but this may well still be the best deal out there right now. Ohh and nectar points too!

Hey i don't own one, but is there much benefit to having 32gb over the 8 if you don't do downloads? I'd only want marios initially and then what ever new titles on disc that pique my interest

Can anyone suggest a hard disk to use for download games

rimz can I use your pic as the pic added by a helper is for the wrong bundle.

Yes the free game promo has ended, that's the reason they've knocked off £40.
I went for the Lego undercover bundle as I'd bought mk8 from game a few weeks back when they'd reduced it to £30, had £25 worth of nectar points so got the Lego undercover bundle for £175.

I'm selling a 2/3 week old Wii U Premium - I literally bought it just to play Mario Kart and I've played it right through now. I also have an Xbox One and this was bought just to tie me over until the new games start coming out in September.

It is in as new condition - I've even kept all the plastic wrapping and packaging because I knew I wouldn't be keeping it long.

I also downloaded Zelda Windwaker as part of the free game promo but never played that - I'll leave that on there.

Send me a message if anyone's interested in buying it!

Where? Did you by any chance read the title let alone the description or the comments posted before yours?
This is an instore deal, the online one was posted by someone else and is out of stock(last I looked, not checked in the last couple of days). This deal is dependent on your local store having stock.

I'm using the Lexar JumpDrive S23 64GB USB 3.0 Flash that was posted as a deal here about a month or so back.
