Get the black one if you download a lot of games, cuz it has 32 gb.
Get the white one if you just play games and not download a lot, cuz it only has 8gb.
I just wanna know one thing: Are you buying games seperately?

I would be buying the games from a shop not downloading. The Wii U Basic by itself (No Games) is £229.99 & I was just planning on getting Super Mario and Zombiu for now.

Bundle the Wii U with a PS4, and it will sell.

This might be poor advice.

If you download many games, then 32 GB is nowhere near enough space. If you want to download games and demos then look at Amazon (or elsewhere) to see how much a 1 TB external drive costs, and add that to your estimates. Most people who download content will need an external drive, so you are better off planning that into your purchase from the start.

If you don't plan on downloading very much - but maybe a couple of games here and there - then it's a tougher decision. You can only hold one or two demos on the white Wii U, so if you plan to download anything it will need additional storage. The black Wii U would give you room for a few games/demos without too much problem... but you might have to start cleaning the fridge if you plan to download full games later on.

Personally I opted for a white Wii U. I strongly prefer buying physical copies of games, but will still probably get an external storage solution for eShop games sometime in the future.

I agree with ehamer. If you do plan on downloading demo's and games 32gb still wont be enough. Personally I would get the cheapest wii u basic you can get and if you do need more memory. Simply buy a 250gb external hard drive for £20-£30.
