Jamberry commented on Mario Kart 8 Sells More Than 1.2 Million Units...:

I bought the bundle early on a pre-order deal and plenty of new first party games to help their cause. I don't regret it in the slightest.

I had always been a bit wary of the Wii U, but It was clear that MK8 superhype was going to drive console sales and all of its first party games. Nintendo have taken very much criticism of their advertising methods lately, but they really smashed this one on the head. The 2 games with the £199 to £239 console bundle made me feel like I was a kid that had to get what I wanted, and had to get it now. I did get it now, with an impulsive mentality, but without the usual pang of buyers remorse. Hurrah!

I was worried that by buying the Wii U I would have another tablet-like electrical thing laying around. The Wii U pad is not a tablet computer at all, it is a good quality controller with a touchscreen, with all the processing performed by the console. They should make it very clear that they are not selling a cheap version of an Ipad/Galaxy pad etc. That is what confused me from the initial Nintendo advertising; it becomes obvious only after buying or researching the product extensively.
