Wii U £200 in HMV

Post by Willow on Mon Mar 25, 2013 4:08 am

in stores that are not scheduled to close, also includes Zombie U as well

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-03-22-hmv-bundles-wii-u-premium-and-zombi-u-for-just-199

Yes it is the 32GB premium version as well!

Nintendo really are in trouble now!

You could see the train crash that is Wii U a mile away, under powered, over priced, too late. If Wii U hit say 2 or 3 years ago with a better spec them maybe, but now?

People like me who grew up (not by much I know!) on Nintendo's games through the 90's on Nes, SNES, N64, simply drifted away. At one time a new Mario / Kart or Zelda was enough, something changed its not enough now.
They lost the casuals who bought Wii and hardcore who bought Zelda 3 in 1992.

nice little insight Willow, thanks.


Tried the Wii, sold it after a month, equally I have still not warmed to kinect either to be fair.

The Wii and the kinect is one of those things which you play for about an hour every couple of months just for a little giggle. Cant see how it could take over the living room though, the technology just isnt good enough to beat a controller at the moment.

If I had 200 quid I would buy one and then sell it on for more on ebay or something tbh, wouldn't even take it out of the box!! Razz

went to the Trafford Centre today in Manchester, and yes they did have them in and yes they were £200 (premium) with Nintendo Land and Zombi U so I decided why not, and bought one. Not sure if its a long term buy but at £200 with 2 games its not that bad, as long as I get Zelda Wind Waker HD and some other Zelda games I should get a few things for it, still believe it will die on its feet though

well the thing was a pain in the arse to set up wifi for, did a check online and they recommend setting the settings manually, I'm sure I had to do this with a Nintendo handheld once. Do Nintendo have a clue? Well I've installed the big patch will be on it tonight, spent last night on my new phone installing apps and such.

Was tempted by this. Decided against it as I know that it will only gather dust when the new consoles come out.
