Wii U arriving early in the UK thanks to Amazon

The retailer notified some customers on Wednesday that their orders had been dispatched for a November 29 delivery, one day early of the official UK launch. (Wii U)

I hope you don't mind be jumping here, it's not often I find something positive about the Wii U. I'm getting Nintendo Land, ZombiU and Assassin's Creed with mine :)

@ Deku-Johnny

I have Nintendo Land and Zombie U... Both great games. Nintendo Land was a bit of a surprise. I knew it would be fun, but it really has way more to offer than I expected. There are a lot of unlocks to keep you coming back. My wife and I have had a lot of fun with it. I think Zombie U is great too... I know some of the reviews have been mixed, but I really dig it. Got AC3 on PS3, but I'd like to see how the gamepad works with it. The gamepad is really cool, and it's almost a let down when you go back to a standard controller. I also got New Super Mario U, and if you likes Super Marion World, then Super Mario U is a sure bet. Feel free to friend me too... I need more Wii U friends. The best thing about Wii U in my opinion is Miiverse. It keeps you from feeling isolated. You just click the Home button on the gamepad, and you can talk about the game you're playing with other people. It's a great community feature.

Sorry to say guys but this is the biggest waste of money i think i have even seen in gaming history.
The PS3 and Xbox are lots better and also sold more this week than the Wii U at Launch.
The Xbox and PS3 are approx. £50-100 cheaper than the Wii U, more people have them, better online services for PS3 and Xbox, its NOT next gen because it is worse than the PS3 and Xbox (CPU and graphics are near another the same). Here in the UK the Wii U is going to be £309 from GAME when i could just get a new PS3 500GB for £249 or even better A new xbox with Forza, Skyrim and Hitman Absolution for £209. But its your choice and im not saying its not but im sharing my opinion on this rip off.
