The ZombiU Pack is like the #WiiU Premium Pack but instead of Nintendo Land it includes the #ZombiU game and a black Wii U Pro Controller.

So about £250 without the game, as expected.
Too Expensive
I'm guessing the price will drop like crazy compared to these prices like how the vita before it even released. Hmv have this same bundle up for £30 more atm.
So you don't want your Wii U delivered on the release date then? I assume that's why you ordered from Zavvi.

Yes, massively. Worth it if you can get a 10% code applied though, imo.
The premium pack is pretty reasonable around £250 (which is what most retailers should be selling it at rather than the stupid prices it rose to yesterday), so this price is pretty good given it includes ZombiU and the Pro Controller aswell which would set you back about £80 on their own (or £100 if you used GAME as a guide X)).
lol @ pro controller, what does it tell you when they bundle a standars controller and call it pro, with a game that is specificaly built to be played with the tablet controller

Shouldn't have a problem with a console, it's only the games that are sent from the channel islands.

Doesn't really matter if it's stupid they include it, the fact its there means whoever wants it will save themselves at least £40 and ZombiU is probably one of the more interesting games at launch which will cost the same. In terms of a deal, it's good value. Not sure how cheap people thought this was going to be, but if the premium pack itself settles around £250 then it would be selling at a fair price imo, that would make this a good deal for those wanting the extras.
I agree @blaze and this is the packet I will order, I just wonder if the tablet controller is another "kinect" in that Microsoft claim kinect adds to games, but in reality they makes them cumbersume

STOP going on about the pro controller - as I said in the other thread it's primarily for multiplayer games to save spending hundreds on extra full blown Wii U controllers!!!!!

£80 - £100 is for the tablet controller, the "Pro" controller is just a standard pad like the Xbox or PS3 controller . They'll be about £29.99

It's a cheaper way of getting a twin stick controller in players hands rather than everyone shelling out for extra tablet controllers, make sense for split screen Mario Kart etc. It's a good idea. Although I'd imagine the player with the tablet controller will be at a bit of an advantage.

That and you can only connect two of the wii u controllers in total, and you also can't you two with any of the games at launch or in the near future hence why you can't buy / preorder spare wii u controllers.
cant see what people are moaning at. most peopl who want to order this best thing to do is check your last email from Zavvi and i assume most people will have a 10% code off so can get the for £269.99 so its a win win situation
Will get this bundle. Hopefully I can get the code to work too. May be worth picking up some cheap wiimotes now before everyone realises that they need them and the price goes up. Am I right in saying I will need to buy a sensor bar separately too?

You're right, I was only basing it off the laughable GAME who have listed it at £49.99 and if that's going to be in the high range (which it definitely is), then other places might be happy to settle around £40 on it, but i've just noticed Zavvi have it listed at £32.99.

No one is sure, but get a few just in case.
I got the code to work so £269.99.
However when I looked at the bottom of the email it stated "*Discount code excludes electronics, computing, consoles and pre-orders and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers e.g. multi-buys. Discount code is valid until 30th September 2012".

So the order will likely be cancelled.
how do you get a code from zawi ?

From time to time, Zavvi will send a 10% off code specific to your account. Mine was originally sent in August but they tend to resend the same code saying don't forget to use it.

It's funny you say that it might be another Kinect. I remember just before the Wii launched and people were slating the motion controllers like crazy. Look how that worked out. Nintendo have taken a huge risk here with their controllers (again) but at least they're innovative. Sony are still using the same controllers on the 3rd generation of their consoles.
Let's not forgot Nintendo land is included in this bundle too! The pro pad will be 29 / 39 alone so this is a good deal but prices will go down more!!!! And you won't get it on release day from zavvi

Yeah but I hope Microsoft keeps the xbox 360 controller design for their next gen. However if they do keep the design similar, they will probably make the xbox 360 controller incompatible and charge us full price for the next gen controller because its Micro$oft.

Exactly. One thing you have to credit Nintendo on is always helping to use past accesories. Okay, the N64 -> Gamecube gap wasn't there. But the Gamecube controllers were usable with the Wii and now Wii controllers will be compatible with the Wii U. I guarantee you won't be able to use PS3 controllers with the PS4 or 360 controllers with the 720.

Has the nintendoland being included in this bundle been confirmed??
I was thinking they would be cheaper than this considering the premium system is only £220 to buy in america, but then we are rip-off britain.
yes nintendoland has been confirmed as being bundled, but still think for what it is its over priced and looks like the tablets not going to be as big a deal as Nintendo said, really can see this being Nintendo's vita. some good idea's like the larger capacity disc's but as usual its one step forward and two steps backwards.

interested in this but waiting a few months after the vita and 3ds to see how this works out

The US price doesn't include tax...US prices never include tax. So it's £264 taking our VAT rate into account..

...besides which..the US get it cheaper than everwhere...they are the exception not the rule.

The UK Zavvi prices are actually cheaper than the Japanese retail prices when our tax rate is taken into account.

No..but sadly there are lots of fanboys who will simply vote cold because they don't like Nintendo/want it to be cheaper.....rather than voting hot because it's the best deal.
How is this cold? I know Zavvi are terrible but this is pretty cheap for this bundle!
Just been to Gamestation and asked what they knew. The manager said they had been to play it yesterday and had a print out of these prices:

Basic: £259.99
Premium: £309.99
Zombie U: £359.99

He couldn't confirm whether the Zombie U version comes with a pro controller and seemed to think that all three will come with Nintendo Land. I then came back to try and use my zavvi code but as others have said, it doesn't work.

I got the code to work this morning but I'm having no joy now. Having looked on Amazon they say this pack contains the following:

Wii U console with 32GB memory storage unit
Wii U GamePad
Wii U Pro controller
24-Months Nintendo Network Premium
ZombiU game
HDMI cable
Wii U AC adapter
Wii U GamePad AC adapter

It doesn't say anything about Nintendo Land. On Sainsburys website they list Nintendo Land as an additional item not as included in the console pack. I wonder what the Network Premium includes or whether it is just online access.

from what i gather the zombie pack comes with all the premium features with a pad and zombie u so i guess so.

The black console (no bundle) comes with Nintendo Land and Network Premium therefore by logic all bundles containing the black console would also include these since they are part of the console package and are part of the reason why that console is dearer. Otherwise it would be like Nintendo / retailers charging £50 for nothing more than a larger hard drive.

Just found this:

GAME will offer three launch packages:

The Wii U white with 8gb solus console and gamepad for £259.99
Wii U black with 32gb console, gamepad, Nintendo Land , sensor bar ,charging dock ,stand and Nintendo Network Premium 1 year for £309.99
ZombiU pack (black) with 32gb console , ZombiU ,gamepad, Nintendo Land , Sensor bar, charging dock, stand, pro controller and Nintendo Network Premium 1 year for £349.99

The Zavvi price looks pretty good right now. I doubt this bundle will be offered at a much lower price as it includes an extra game and controller for less than the retail price of the premium bundle.

This is a good price, but where does it say that a Pro controller is included? I can't see it mentioned anywhere on Zavvi's site?

Time to get Amazon to price match this.
