Registration into Nintendo's Deluxe Digital Rewards Program Ends this Month

If you were a savvy shopper and plunked down an extra $50 at the beginning of the Wii U life cycle, chances are you’re a Wii U Deluxe owner. Even after the price drop, if you managed to score the 32GB console in any bundle, you’re still part of the Digital Deluxe Promotion. Most gamers seem to know about this but if you don’t, it’s essentially a 10% off of anything digital you buy for the Wii U. It’s a promotion Nintendo started in order to promote digital sales, but it’s ending December 31, 2014.

Lying about the power of the "Ultra 64" ..promising an arcade 1:1 port of Killer Instinct and later just having a super poor SNES port of the game + a very gimped version of Killer Instinct 2.

Didnt buy a Nintendo Console since the gamecube, didnt regret it.

I'd say them opting to stick to carts for the N64 was probably their biggest blunder. Even more so than their back stabbing deal against Sony. It literally cost them their long time partnership with Square and the FF series. There was not a single FF (or DQ) title on the N64 when there had been ones on the NES and SNES. They came to their senses with the Cube and supported mini DVD so they at least got back into SE's good graces... but the damage was done and FF7 went on to be the biggest FF game and a huge win for PS.

Between the low sales, the shit in the memory that simply dies and the regional crash on the Gamepad. This is a console that will become stupidly rare in a few years.

Still got my black one fully working, I should maybe box that bad boy up lol

DarXyde10d ago

It's really funny to think about people harvesting Wii U parts like some organ trafficker and selling them on the dark web.

But sure enough, Nintendo Will probably try to find a way to put a legal bullet in the base of that person's skull.

Actually its the opposite, boxing it up is what will kill the machine. You want it plugged in, and you want to power it on frequently, that's how you'll extend the life of the memory chips. This brief video explains it.

Appreciate the tip chocoburger

badz14910d ago

nah...just their way of saying, just buy the Switch already, you pleb!

FinalFantasyFanatic10d ago

Unfortunately, there are a few games still stuck on that thing, I've been hoping they'd port Xenobalde Chronicles X and Twilight Princess over to the Switch since I didn't buy a WiiU.

MetroidFREAK2110d ago

I still have one in working order. Debating if I should grab a 2nd one before too long

hiawa2310d ago

MY Wiiu is still connected for Wii Punchout, and the Donkey Kong game which comes out on the Switch in January 2025. Almost everything else has been ported over.

Fantastic homage to a memorable part of the original. The authenticity to the source material is outstanding and blows away all of the pathetic Hollywood adaptations that we've had to endure as fans. The addition of Chris Redfield's original actor AND (separate) voice actor is fantastic! Heck, even the CGI was pretty good given the total budget of $55k to make this.

Babadook712d ago (Edited 12d ago )

Yeah this seemed so much more like cannon to me. I’d watch more of it if / when it’s available.
