wii u mario & luigi/splatoon bundle refurb Argos clearance £139.99

56
Found 31st Jan 2016
Went into the Walsall Argos clearance store today (looking for something else) and noticed these for sale. I checked the price for both bundles wth the young girl behind the desk and she confirmed both bundles at £139.99.

Obviously there are only 2 or 3 Argos clearance stores in the UK with Walsall being one so only great if you're local really. Not even sure if they will be available this price in the other clearance stores.

Just thought I'd post as it could be a steal for someone!

Depends if it's a boxed game or preloaded to the machine
I'll bite when they are under £100...too much for a dead machine with no games..

No games ? All Wii games work on Wii U, giving it a bigger library than PS4/Xbone for years to come!

You are such a contradictory person, saying things like that and yet posting the most WiiU game deals of anyone I 'know' on here.

Not everyone can get every deal, so based on your logic, the site should just close.
Iv got a wii u and played about 4 times at 20 min each. Maybe got a long library of games most at a premium price unless u get lucky but by christ it gets boring ur so limited to what u can do on the console itself. Plus if u wanna play the wii games u need to attach the wii u to the TV have the hassle of the sensor bar then added stress off the wii remotes then the nunchuck defeats the purpose off the wii u if u ask me. That's why most my games are sealed and not played more of an ornament.
Calling people Fanboys TUT TUT, just coz this machine is off to retirement doesn't make it a bad machine, I find myself explaining myself again oh dear

One of them is in Stanley co durham, waste of time going out of your way to visit but worth a look if passing by as its a total lottery as to whether they have anything decent in it - usually not

i agree, if you have patience and persistence you will get one for less than £50.
Damn, would love to pick one of these up at that price!

Jesus, that was quick, I see what you mean.

Is this a 'proper' refurb, or one thats just been chucked in some brown box without having crumbs and hairs removed?

What home console out there doesn't attach to the TV though? Is a bit like saying your DVD or Freeview Box sucks and never gets used because it needs connected to the TV. I have 4 Wii U Remotes... and don't feel stressed out. Not really understanding what the stress of the Remotes is either?

And re your 'it gets boring' comment, maybe video gaming just isn't for you?

Feel the same way. Even Mario Kart 8 has become boring.

Can't wait for Pokken and TPHD.
I can confirm there are no Wii U games. Source: en.wikipedia.org/wik…are

"As of January 29, 2016, there are 675 games on this list.
Exclusive = 203 (150 at retail, 53 download-only)
Console exclusive = 164 (141 at retail, 23 download-only)
Multiplatform = 303 (182 at retail, 120 download-only, 1 Region)"

I can also confirm the Wii U is "dead". (Some genocidal Nintendo hating XBOX/PS fanboys told me so on HUKD).

That is the same as the Walsall one as stock change regularly...went before Christmas and dropped lucky to get a 2TB Seagate external portable HD which I knew could be cracked open and drive used in the PS4 for £40.

As for people dissing this deal, ridiculous.

I picked up (not at Walsall Clearance Bargains) just under two years ago the Wii U Mario & Luigi pack from Argos Clearance on eBay for £170, a steal of a price at the time, and again marked up as 'refurb', came as a managers clearance stickered item, box a little bit dinged up, contents all mint and sealed.

As for those criticising the Wii U...I own both a PS4 as mentioned and a Wii U and owning both over the past two years I have had far more exclusive games for the Wii U whilst the PS4 slowly picks up the pace.

if you've only played it 4 times I'd suggest you sell it and get back some of your outlay.
Mario Kart 8 is the schizzle

...of which I make 351 are still TBA, unreleased or scheduled.
Not counting the fact that Monster Hunter has 6 entries either.

Check a retailer, see what games are good enough to get physical copies.

I have an xbox one, ps4 and wii u. The xbox one rarely gets turned on, the ps4 gets a reasonable amount of use, but the wii u gets more use than the other 2 together. There may not be 30 games a month being released for the wii u, but the quality of the games is very good on the whole, in my opinion.

​The whole thing about the wii u was that u could play off tv but if u wanna play the wii games is more hassle why not just keep the wii if that was the case for me the biggest feature over the wii was that u could play on the game pad. As for gaming not for me well sorry but I preferred my nes to the wii u. That's proper retro gaming can't beat it.
perfect as 2nd Wii u for Pokken
none in corby store

But how many of them are actually good games worth owning? Entirely different question. Still, if you like games like Barbie's Dreamhouse Party, Monster High 13 Wishes, Funky Barn and so on.. more power to ya.

Went in this afternoon and not such a great deal. Staff confirmed that none of the wii u deals have games with them. They are consoles only for £139 in their original box.

Still cheap but not as good as it looked.

Serious questions. How many games are worth owning on the PS4? How many games are worth owning on the Xbox One? How many games are worth owning on the Wii U? I think you'll find the numbers are pretty similar and the Wii U titles are more diverse.

I've had a PS4 since last summer and I've got DriveClub, Project Cars, The Last of Us, Uncharted Collection, Tomb Raider DE, Metal Gear Solid 5, Mad Max, Batman Arkham Knight, Little Big Planet and Tearaway Unfolded. There's also some great Indie games available on PS4 - I thoroughly enjoyed Journey. I like the PS4 AND the Wii U and see no benefit in all the bickering.

Agreed. I was just pointing out there are as many titles worth owning a Wii U for as there are for the Xbox and PS4 and if anything the Wii U titles cover more genres (which I personally like, I understand some people like to stick with similar games).
