Which Wii U is right for you?

Post Arcade writes:

When Nintendo Co. Ltd.’s Wii U arrives on store shelves this Sunday, prospective buyers will be faced with two choices: the $299.99 Basic Set and a $349.99 Deluxe Set.

This is a new tactic for Nintendo, which in previous generations has gone to great lengths to offer a single skew of living room hardware (differences in colour notwithstanding).

Now that consumers have a choice, they need to figure out which Wii U best suits their needs. (Nintendo, Wii, Wii U)

You cannot be so wrong. The Wii is awesome and based on the Wii U that I tried out at Gamestop; It's also FUN and AWESOME!

@Akuma-

Normally I'd say you're entitled to your opinion, but when you back it up with the same tired old misinformation that trolls love spewing around here, I'll simply respond with a "don't let the door hit your ass on the way out."

You mean it's early to the party, it's the first and only 8th gen console for one or two years.

I do not like neither because I'm being nitpicky on the colors. I would love a deluxe edition having a white color Wii U.

I'm with ya, but I got the black one anyhow, just a better deal.

A hacked one, so I don't have to deal with Nintendo's BS when I import games.

I will personally be picking up the White basic. It has a more affordable price tag. Nintendo Land as a pack in may be good for some, but I would rather spend my money on New Super Mario Bros U, or ZombiU for my first title. Rewarding experiences to pass the time while waiting for Nintendo Wii U entertainment system exclusive Wonderful 101. I do prefer the color black for my gaming console, but my original Nintendo Wii entertainment system was a white launch model so I will keep to tradition. The original will enter a much needed state of cryostasis sleep in a short period of time.

Another factor that plays into my decision is the price for the amount of memory. I plan on upgrading to a 1T HDD so no need to spend the extra for 32gb. I hope everyone else is prepared for the next generation of gaming, and that you have an awarding experience with your soon to be purchased Nintendo Wii U entertainment system.

Rated E For Everyone

Firstly, your "signature" still pisses me off to no end as does how your typing reads more like a company's mission statement rather than that of a human being.

Second: There's no way you're in business because the smart money is on buying the black one, getting the bigger flash memory and selling Nintendo Land (if you don't like it anyways, if you do it's clearly the way to go) for up to 100$ to people who bought basic and no games (casuals), better machine in the long run, rewards program, neat plastic extras and you'll end up spending less money once it's sold/if you were gonna get Nintendo Land anyways.

Its the Deluxe option for me.

Is neither for me i'll wait rel next generation consoles PS4/X720

Why not get a WiiU to fill the time between the next xbox and PS4? Plus you are also missing out on some amazing games if you don't own all 3.

Oh hey, let's jump on the Nintendo hating bandwagon.

Where's the green Wii U, ffs?
I need a green one to match my curtains, carpet, wallpaper, tables, chairs, shelves, cups, plates, knives, forks, tiles on the kitchen floor, front door, back door, shed door, my roof, my cat, my bed, my TV, my radio, my socks......

I have a deluxe bundle preordered as well as a copy of ZombiU. I would've got the ZombiU bundle but I don't have much need for the pro controller and I want Nintendoland. I'm only paying an extra tenner for the option I'm taking for two games instead of one game and a controller. Only 17 days to go!
