@Sony_70
I guess it depends on whether you think you'll be downloading games or buying retail I guess. For the obvious reasons of extra storage and the discount card thingo but also for the load times. In the Nintendo Direct thing they claimed that the optical drive will be able to read at 22MB/s which is twice as fast as a very good SD card and probably around what you can expect as a worst case over USB2 but would be something around 1/20th of the speed of it's SSD.

If you're only going to be buying retail it's a non-issue..... otherwise it's something to think about

Well I'm a big DD guy but it would mostly be eshop and VC type stuff with a few retail games here and there. I'm guessing a nice SD card or external HDD should cover it.

My current 3DS/WiiU cash pool estimates @ $2800 so I shall hook me up with the premium deluxe mega combo deal with 2TB HDD and all the launch games including VC/Ware downloads please That should keep me occupied well into next year

And now it's £289.99, after being £199.99 for a few minutes. I think someone at Amazon is being a little trigger-happy with their keyboard. PRESS ALL THE BUTTONS.

I thought the prices were reasonable until I saw the pathetic amounts of memory.

Pricing is unreasonable just like the 3DS was at launch. I expect a price cut will happen pretty soon.

I doubt wii u is going to be selling out wii style mostly because of the economy and partially the new way to play thing isn't very new now, so can't imagine the wii u controller getting the same coverage as the wiimote originally did but you never know.

$429.95 in Australia for the Premium Pack ($349.95 for the Basic Pack) is great!
Couldn't be happier with the price!
I expected $400 to be the absolute minimum, but thought it'd more likely be around $500 or at most maybe $600 ($598 was EB's preorder listing) with a bundle or something.
Looks like I can afford another couple of games already with what's leftover from my preorder.

How? Do you want an underpowered system again? There is a reason the 360 and PS3 have the life they do now and the Wii doesn't.

Haters gonna hate, I suppose... To be honest, the Wii U is quite reasonably priced since you're getting an HD video game system that controls an HD video game system. I actually thought the lower end would be $349.99. This is definitely an incredible scenario that has played out. Not to mention, the 720 and PS4 will find it hard to undercut this price AND be totally amazing.

I own a PS1, GBA, GBA SP, Wii (GCN), 360, 3DS, PC (Laptop), Wii U, and PS4.
I used to own a GBC, PS2, and DS Lite
