Retailers are now starting to take pre-orders for the Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle – just announced today.
Nice bundle, it should've been $180 imo
Yeah why just don't give them for free?? Seriously how are they gonna make a profit if the price was $180?!
Nintendo has no choice but to get more aggressive on the Wii U
selling at $180 is better than not selling at all. $329?! damn, I'd rather save $70 more and get a ps4 instead.
Good luck playing mariokart on the ps4 lol. Any way I'd rather buy 64 gigs of ram for my computer at $400 than get 8 for the ps4. 8 gigs of gddr5 must be cheap now since video cards have that for under $300 hmmmmm. Plus there is nothing fun on the ps4 it's a dust collector. They should have waited and got over the 3 teraflops spec if they wanted to be high end. Good luck playing with your specs... we will be playing games. I think I'm gifting two of those bundles so I better get ordering! Don't worry you will have watch dogs and some over priced dlc to buy.
Because nintendo showed us they dont want to make a profit when they came out with this console that they know DOES NOT capture the imaginations of gamers like other more valuable consoles are doing (value features-wise and future game prospect wise)
Xbone at that price would be an instant buy from me bundled with Knack that is!
Not to nitpick, but I think you mean "Kinect".
Why, just so YOU can afford it! Pay for things like everyone else has to, freeloader.
no, because THATS what its actually worth. a pure games machine should never be more than 200$, a multimedia machine with mature games and stories to actually capture gamers imaginations? that's another story;)
I just curious... where did you pull $180 from? That just seems so random...
Sheesh Josephayal, why don't you ask Nintendo to bankrupt themselves and give away their offices to the public? The bundle gets you a game, a console, two controllers and a free game with registering MK8. How is that not a good value for what it's at now?
Whoa isn't that exactly what sony is doing! Whoa who needs fans like that! He is part of the new type of fan gamers that helps companies shut down. Behold the birth of the deathcore! They have been shutting down companies since the atari 2600 or maybe the intelevision who knows but we finally get to see the thinking that causes a crash! Thank you fellow sony fan. I've been playing sony console since ps1 and own a sony stereo receiver and a large screen trinitron display! Yet sony has lost their way. That sony sound chip in the snes was why I bought it over a crap sounding genesis. I wait 4 gens for a collection of good games and all I got was god of war lol. Please sony listen to the gamers who got bored of the ps2 near the end and didn't get a ps3 till the end. We need you to compete game play wise with Nintendo not pr wise. I want a ps4 bundle like this mariokart bundle with a game I know I'll play for more than half a year! Stop listening to the death core gamers. Those guys just want pc games and are just to cheap. Sony use to be high end... why are they low end now!
nah it should be $5 cause why the hell not XD
And include a free Lamborghini while we're at it.
You can get a Less powerful gaming machine, the 3DS, for around $180. Why would they charge the same for their more powerful console ? Do you people even think logically about what your typing before you type it?
logic... N4G.... those two things go together about as well as oil and water do.
you talk so a load of ....
Damn, that's a good deal. Note to self...never pick up a console first day...NEVER!
Seriously... I have to stop that too.
Guess I lucked out then lol. at least you still get the free game, right? :)
Well looks like we aren't getting a limited edition
Wow only $330.00 and it comes with a red Mario wii remote. Red steering wheel,mario kart 8 and a down load code for Zelda WW,nsmb,Pikmin 3,or Wii party U.Hell of a deal!
Sonic lost world is also an option.
really? I never saw that. How do you know Sonic is an option?
@Neon Because it showed it in the UK Mariokart Direct. Look to the left-hand side of the video near its end, when they're talking about the bundle.^_-
Sonic is only an option for the UK, in US its just those 4
£199 at tesco with a £20 off code when you spend over £150! Think it adds the voucher when you go to checkout if not its on the site
This would look nice sitting next to my beautiful PS4. I might pull the trigger my birthday is May 24.
my PS4 and Wii U get along great. Neither gets upset or jealous when I play one over the other.
Hey we have the same birthday! I'm turning 21 hbu
Lol this is a good deal. Good thing I stopped buying nintendo consoles at launch after I got screwed with the 3 d's at launch
They've just announce on that if you register Mario Kart 8 on Club Nintendo you get one of four games FREE : Windwaker, Wii U Party, New Super Mario Bros Wii U or Pikman 3
£199 i pre order my bundle for from Tesco's. You get a free download code for a game as well after registering MK8, so i'll be picking up Wind Waker most likely for free :D I really do think nows the time to pull the trigger
i dont get why everyone is downvoting the guy who said it should be 180$. I would pay even less for it after seeing that embarassingly weak zelda U graphics demo (dont lie, it was just a twilight princess re-skin with slightly shinier environments and they still can't do reflections on the shield?really??((even the crescent moon shield had a reflectice surface in Ocarina of Time)). nintendo shot themselves in the foot when they decided to use cheap hardware, hence people arent buying their shitty overpriced console that still doesnt even have 1/10th of the multimedia functions a PS3 has. I for one am not paying 80-100$ for a tablet that did nothing but break up gameplay and irritate me when i was trying out the sonic lost world demo. its just common sense, anyone not seeing that is a hopeless fanboy. That said, i did enjoy the Mario 3D world demo even if it was so sugar-coated and cutesy that i felt like vomitting during my playthrough. remember when you HAD to save the princess and the tense/dire tone of the bowser levels in SM64 made it all that much more intense? yeah, the new nintendo games have lost that spirit entirely.
