Great price for this. Heated!

Very good option for someone who wants to play BOTW and other big Nintendo games like MK8 etc without the £300+ needed for the Switch....

Hi! The Wii U consists of two parts and one part doesn't work without the other: there's the main console where you put the games disks (on the right in the picture at the top of this page) and the gamepad which has a screen and a built in controller (on the left). If you want to play single player game, you're guaranteed of getting a controller becuase it's built into the gamepad. If you want to play multiplayer games you might want to look at an additional controller. The wii-mote and nunchuck from the original Wii are completely compatible with the Wii U and can be bought quite cheaply second-hand. All the original Wii games will also play on the Wii u - lots of cheap games!

The premium version of the wii u is black and comes with 32GB of memory built-in and a charging cradle for the gamepad. The basic version is white and only has 8GB of memory. Those are basically the only two versions of the Wii u available. The extra memory doesn't affect the performance of the games. Wii U games run straight from the disk, they don't need to be installed on the consoles memory like on an XBOX or Playstation. You only need the extra memory if you're looking to download games from the Nintendo Digital Shop (they have some quite tempting sales).

This deal is for the black Premium console, which is the one I had. I think it looks nicer that the white, and I found the extra memory useful (although I did eventually put a USB drive in the back anyway).

​I bought a boxed 8gb a while back from these guys and it was in perfect nick. I guess it's just luck of the draw. great price though, stupidly easy to mod.
Hot! I love my WiiU way more than my Switch.

Get Scribble on WiiU! Brilliant game for groups or parties.

I bought the Wii u from game, I have a ps4 pro and Xbox one and litrelly I haven't been of the Wii u. I've spent more on games than the cost of the switch console and don't regret it.

I'm just getting all the gems before they go up in price.

Plus I've bought many amiibos I'm addicted haha.

Hot deal for a Hot console (though ordering through Game gives you £2.00 reward points), but when I ordered some Wii U games from grainger I found the website very slow and then they didn't have one of the games I ordered after all, but they did contact me and refund me. Though the games took a while to be delivered. I guess they are a much smaller outfit than Game or the other big names, but they deffo need to invest in better online infrastructure.

My little relatives love the Wii U, it's so refreshing to play Yoshi Wooly world, Mario Kart 8 and Nintendo land in 2 player splitscreen and have fun like we all used to before online became the main focus. COD, Assasins Creed and Splinter Cell are on it aswell, and being able to play on the gamepad screen with headphones is practical and immersive. Really what let it down was very poor marketing, a silly name (just calling it Wii 2 would of increased sales) and maybe a slightly underpowered CPU that made porting games more of a chore for lazy devs. Ram and GPU are far superior to PS3 and X360. The online eshop store is also abit meh and the prices are pretty extortionate when all the games are cheaper in physical form and the indies are cheaper on other platforms.
still waiting for them to deliver dark souls 3 I ordered over a week ago...
I bought a preowned wii u and recommend it. I couldn't justify the full RRP they charged, but there's still many decent titles I never played. Until the switch gets more titles, then I'd say a preowned Wii U is a better buy.

​there slow for deliveries plus it's bank holiday
I play on my Wii U more often than the PS4. The games are just pure fun and don't take themselves too serious. I can play Breath Of The Wild, Twilight Princess, Windwaker, Mario Kart 8, Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong, Pikmin and Metroid Prime Trilogy on a machine that costs less than £100.
I put homebrew on my WiiU this week and works perfect, they have finally cracked it properly, 500gb HDD and your away! It is still a little risky though.

Games I play all the time:

MK8
Splatoon
Super Mario

JUST PURE FUN!

Any hard drive should work and the Wii U supports 1tb. The problem you're probably having is with power - the Wii U's USB ports don't provide enough power for a portable hard drive (one that's powered just by the USB ports) so you will need to either a) use an external (mains powered) hard drive or b) get a Y-shaped USB cable for the drive you already have that will allow you to get power from two USB ports.

You can mess with redNAND all you want - that's what it's for. It's sysNAND you've got to be careful with. But the hacking methods are relatively simple and there are some foolproof guides out there so you shouldn't even need redNAND unless you want to develop your own hacks or homebrew on the console.

Yeah, seriously, the only advantage I see the Switch having is its portability. It's great being able to switch from playing Zelda on the TV to the Gamepad, the only downside is the streaming signal doesn't reach very far. But considering the much bigger library of games I'm happy to live with it for a few more years until I've finished all the Wii U games I have and there are some more must-haves on the Switch. My Wii U was gathering dust for a while, but now that I'm into it I'm really into it.

I recently purchased an unboxed wii U from grainger games, took a long time to be dispatched and I know it was listed as unboxed but when it turned up loose in just a cheap bubble envelope all ripped I was not impressed

Good point with the USB, wasn't aware of that. Will order a Y cable and give it a go. Saves me buying another HDD.

Cheers!
I was a fan of the Nintendo Wii. Last year I got the Wii U and it is absolute rubbish. Games like Donkey Kong Freeze and Mario World are so hard they become unplayable. Every time I look at this worthless console I want to give it a good, hard kick.

That's how the real games supposed to be. You don't want to complete it in few hours when you pay for it. And how hard it can be when my 7 year old is just about to complete Mario world. Took him few months though.

It gets everyone who tries to connect a portable HDD to their Wii U - I went through the same thing of trying to figure out why my HDD wasn't working until it was pointed out to me, so glad to pass the advice on! In fact I need to order another one so I can add a second hard drive to have one for Wii/GameCube games as well. Only then I'll have no USB ports left...

It's not a hard game except the last few stages on world crown, Mystery House Marathon and Champion's Road if your 7 year old beat them levels that is seriously impressive as they compare to some of the harder stages of super meat boy which is a very hard game to beat.

Got one instore yesterday from grainger games, it was priced at £99 but went through at £98.99.
The gamepad is in great condition and the main unit has a couple of light scratches, the stand, hdmi lead etc are all
there.

I got Zelda botw and its great, no need for switch yet. I have the main unit upstairs and was surprised that the gamepad worked downstairs as I thought the range would be short.

I think I will give the switch till next year to build up its game library and until then I will play this to death with its huge back catalog, my 4 year old loves it

It's the easiest console I've run homebrew/similar on. Put some files on an SD card, navigate to a website and done. Transferred all of my discs to the SD card so I can just play it off of that, plus I can use the same ISOs to play the games at 4K through cemu on my computer.

It's the cheapest preowned from a 'shop' available at the moment.
