That just reminded me of this Tiny Toon Adventures parody of SMB.
"Batteries, instructions, joystick and game not included." I thought I remembered them saying the plug was also sold separately, but I guess I remember wrong. :D

Gotta make up some of the cost of the controller! :D

Seriously though, I'd expect it to just be console, controller, charging cable, composite AV cable, power cable and manuals (a think one for the console, and a separate one for online information. I think the Wii did if I remember right). Maybe if we're lucky a demo disc.

I think (and hope) the Wii U will come with a hybrid composite/component cable like 360s used to come with, so that those who want HD won't need an additional cable, people with old TVs won't be left in the dust, and those who want HDMI can buy a cable if they want (it doesn't seem too necessary when there already is an HD solution (component cables) in the box).

Also, I think Nintendo will include a Wii Remote and a Nunchuck, because the Wii U seemingly needs those and Nintendo doesn't want to turn off customers that don't already have a Wii. Then again, it seems like the New Controller and Wii U will do okay without a Wiimote in the box, so they might as well just put the New Controller in there without a Wiimote or Nunchuck to accompany it on it's journey to the consumer (insert dramatic music here). However, Nintendo might want to include a tech demo that shows how players with the New Controller can interact with players with Wii controllers just like Wii Sports was a tech demo demonstrating what the Wii Remote was capable of, and if Nintendo wants to do that, they should include the Wii Remote and Nunchuck.

I also think that Nintendo will probably include an SD card already installed in the system like the 3DS, because nowadays Nintendo seems to think that's so much better than actually giving the console a substantial amount of internal memory.

I'm pretty okay.

-wii u console
-wii u controller
-coupon for $.10 off a wii remote
-composite cables (because nintendo is probably going to be a cheap dickhole and not include hdmi OR component)
-power BRICK (lets get real people)
-2gb sd card (because nintendo doesnt think youll need anything bigger)
-charge cable for controller
-a bunch of papers inside a holey plastic bag (it says read manual before operating but no one cares about it except for the club nintendo PIN code paper)
-a bunch of soft white wrappers that it all comes in
-a bunch of tape on the unrecycled box.
-a thought of ordering it with amazon frustration free packaging next time

Out of every time I've ever been to gamestop I've only seen one man eat a pair of pants.

  • A Wii u obviously
  • Wii u controller
  • Perhaps a charge-cradle. Someone on the internet said that it has a opening for a charge cradle.
  • A new kind of Wii sports

I think by the time it comes out HDMI will already be such the standard cheap hookup that it could indeed come with it. It'd be kind of dumb not to include it, since it's an HD system and most people will have HDMI TV hookups that are actually easier to hook up than composite now. A year or two ago, or even now I wouldn't expect that but in a year and a half? thats like getting a Blu Ray player with a Coaxial cable, it just won't make sense and I think they'll get that by then.

They'll still have to include composite cables for those with SDTVs. And what about the HDTVs before HDMI, or the ones that didn't bother to include it, yet have component ports? I guess you could leave those out, though if Nintendo wanted to ensure they included cables that support all HDTVs, they would go with component, due to the fact that (almost?) every HDTV has component ports, plus they can support EDTVs (which go up to 480p with component cables but aren't HD and don't have HDMI ports). But the Wii U does seem to have a dedicated HDMI port, so it does seem possible for Nintendo to include an HDMI cable. I am hoping for an HDMI cable to be included, but I have an extra if I have to use that.

If they ever go forward with that New Super Mario Bros. Mii idea, that better be the pack-in game.

I think the bundled game could be "Wii U Play" (Will you play?) and it should include:
Battle Mii

Chase Mii

Shield Pose

And more... a lot more... :P
I am beginning to lose interest in the Wii Sports games, so this is what I prefer. Battle Mii is the kind of game that I personally would enjoy.

As you open the box Shigeru Miyamoto will jump out joyfully shouting out happy remarks in Japanese/English! Confetti EVERYWHERE. And finally there'll be Mario music blasting as Miyamoto triumphantly parades out of your house and back to Nintendo HQ.

A stylus and...
That's it. You can do everything with a stylus. Who needs an effin' Wii U when you can pretend that ur a wizard with your stylus,
or playing airplain, or swordfights, or as an instrument, or even using it as a long nose to use when u tell teh liez!

It's a conspiracy, I tell you.

Based on the newest rumours I'm going to revise my "the box will include" thing to:

  • Console
  • GamePad
  • Composite AV & Power Cables
  • Nintendo Land
  • Charging Stand with Charging Cable
  • Sensor Bar

Notable omissions:

  • Wii U Pro Controller
  • Wii remote and Nunchuck (hence why no Wii Sports pack-in title)
  • HDMI cables
