Does the U up-rez existing Wii games btw? I still have a few Wii games I want to play/finish, but don't have a TV or monitor that I could plug it into atm. Guess I should probably try Dolphin instead of forking out for a U...

You know, I'd be more interested if the tablet was a device that allows me to play games anywhere via streaming from the console at home, plus having the ability to mirror/send the stream onto a big screen TV/monitor via the tablet.

Personally I have no interest in the U platform at this stage, but heh, knowing Nintendo it will sell like hotcakes... and if not, they'll just release the Vitality Sensor addon which will probably quadruple sales overnight.

Did anyone here manage to get an order in for the £199 Premium pack at Amazon last night?

I hope GAME isn't to stubborn when it comes to it's pricing. If I remember correctly they at least had a better deal then PLAY, when the 3DS came out. I've got my deposit with GAME at the moment, so I hope they become quite competitive soon. If the shrink the black premium Wii U down to at least £290 I'll be happy. Anything bellow that I will be ecstatic!

I have put a £20 deposit down at GAME for the Black Wii U 32GB Premium ZombiU bundle pack, so £329.99, in theory now. Will most probably get New Super Mario Bros U at launch or Christmas, definitely getting Trine 2 on launch day.

Yeaahhhhh this isn't going to last until launch. There's a huge retail markup here, it's just a case of who makes the first move.

I've had a pre-order with ShopTo for 3 months now at £280, but I'm putting one down with Zavvi as well because that ZombiU bundle is the best value I can find, and I was buying the game anyway. Also ordered a Pro controller and Rayman with that. Zavvi take ages to deliver, though I will need to keep looking.

I admire Nintendo for letting the free market dictate the value of their console, but it does make their marketing strategy a bit more difficult to follow. People need to see a £199 Wii U this Christmas, even if they can't get one.

How bloody much! I think I'll wait till it's inevitable price reduction comes but if next gen is announced by then I'll prob just wait for that. Disappointing was hoping to get one before xmas

Too expensive in my view, it will still sell but I think it will hurt their challenge to outsell the current gen, nevermind next gen from Sony and MS.

More than expected, just a tougher challenge to get the funds in the next few months.
