White Wii U Smash Bundle

We're heading into the most competitive and important sales season of the year, and as a result Nintendo and its rivals will be going all out to convince consumers to splash the cash on their systems and games. Retailers, for their part, will be trying to rapidly clear out old stock and coax gamers to their stores to buy the latest and greatest games on offer.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the key release — along with the amiibo range — for the home console this Holiday season, and some stores are using it as a temptation to flog unwanted white 8GB Wii U systems. Nintendo has been phasing the 8GB model out for over a year and focusing on the 32GB alternative, but the smaller model may just be the affordable way to jump into the Wii U world; considering the fact 32GB is rather small in itself and a hard drive is likely necessary for most regardless, it's a tempting option.

Nintendo UK has used its Wii U Facebook page to highlight one such offer of a Wii U Basic and the new Super Smash Bros., but we've looked around online and found a few other deals, too; these are all established yet smaller online retailers. Some of these deals mean that the actual systems are being valued at less than a standard 3DS; these are all UK deals and prices.

Naturally these are all pre-order deals due to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U not yet being available, but represent some impressive value. It's a bit of a fire-sale in terms of the white 8GB Wii U, yet could tempt more into joining the ranks of gamers that are enjoying the system.

Do any of these deals stand out and tempt you, or perhaps appeal as recommendations for others? Let us know if you're taking the plunge.
