UK getting three new Wii U bundles

Wii Party U bundle
In an effort to boost sales in the UK for the holiday season, Nintendo has announced three new bundles for the Brits. This is likely a strategy for Nintendo to get rid of some of the discontinued Basic Wii U sets, as the 8 GB version is included in two of the three bundles.

The first bundle includes a 32 GB Wii U and a copy of New Super Mario Bros U + the Super Luigi U expansion. Both games are included on the same disc.

The second bundle includes an 8 GB Basic Wii U set with a copy of Just Dance 2014 + Nintendo Land. The third bundle includes the same 8 GB Basic Wii U set and a copy of Wii U Party + Nintendo Land. Both 8 GB models also include an extra Wiimote.

All three bundles will be released in November, and will retail for £250. The 8 GB bundles are in limited supply, as Nintendo is trying to get rid of the Basic stock and focus on the 32 GB Deluxe version.

The new bundles should provide a healthy boost in sales in the region. Wii U console sales went up almost 700% with the release of Wind Waker HD in the UK.

    Wow with the zelda bundle already bringing sales up and now these 3 new great deal bundles? Nintendo is on he rise!

    • Peter Paul

      Let’s see how sale go once the Xbox One and PS4 get released.. The Wii U might be left in their dust and forgotten.

      • Mason742

        I doubt it, it’s most definitely plausible but the Wii U is cheaper, this christmas all parents everywhere will buy their kids a Wii U instead of a more pricey “next gen” console.

        • crocodileman94

          I could see parents buying a PS4, but not a 500$ Xbone.

          • Jon Turner

            I personally say parents won’t buy either next-gen system. The WiiU won’t be left behind this Xmas. Not with Mario 3D coming in November.

          • Mason742

            Sony: $400 for the console, no games, and 1 controller. Wii U: Bundled with two games and two controllers including Wii U tablet for $299.99. May see from my point of view, more of a value to basic consumers and casual players this holiday.

          • harelsen

            depends on what’s on little jimmy’s wishlist :)

        • harelsen

          but the problem with the name and look alike might confuse the parents.

      • Simon Stevens

        I think they’ll sell well to the corehardcore gamer, not so much the casuals and families, I was gonna buy a ps4 on launch but after some calculating… it’s just not that worth while a deal, ps4 is 349.99, ps plus (only way to play online) is 39.99, then like any console, I’m gonna want at least 2 games to go with it, that’s 49.99 per game, all in all it’s a tenner short of 500 quid, That kinda money could buy a lot of presents or a more than half decent 40 inch led tv and above, a 50 inch plasma screen even, I love Sony content but I think I’ll hang with the Vita tv upon release instead :) be a few years before they REALLY get to grips with getting the best out of the hardware anyway, wii u is cheap, has games bundled in and free online…. hardly a deal to snub your nose at for those with common sense, I know I didn’t once Blockbuster had the bundles on sale, I snapped up 2 of those bad boys ^^

        • Guest

          When did the PS4 have the price drop from $399 to $349. and Last I check, PS plus was $50…. and most games are listed at $60……

          • Simon Stevens

            I’m from the UK :) couldn’t find the pound sign on the Wii U :( so all that is in gbp

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            PS Plus pricing varies depending what you purchase. It’s $50 a year. I usually get three months for $17.99. Good thing about PS Plus, is that it works on PS3, PS4 and Vita. So it’s a plus(no pun intended) they went with that instead of making people purchase it again for another system.

          • Simon Stevens

            I used to have it but the games are very hit and miss so I just let it run it’s course last time round, great deal but a bit off putting now that it’s going to be mandatory to play online, I use boomerang rentals for renting out games and there pretty good considering you can get all the latest content from them, personally I have no need for ps + but it’s still a great service never the less, just wish they had more to offer than drive club upon release.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Of course, it’s a launch. Lol. What did you expect? If there’s nothing that interests you, come back to it later. Takes time for games to build up.

          • Simon Stevens

            The Gaikai service would have been nice lol got a hankering to play some old ps2 games (dragon quest 8 and shadow hearts 2), at the moment it seems most next gen games are gonna be available still on the ps3, maybe that’s the wii u’s problem with 3rd parties, nobody wants to make a super expensive next gen game for just one system, should see them roll out next year when there’s an option to port them to all systems, I won’t be buying a ps4 until the next elder scrolls comes out, that’s my big hitter, kingdom hearts 3 would have been but I’ve waited so long now that I’ve just lost interest lol

  • Deadpool U

    They should have bundles everywhere I mean even a premium white Wii U is even included there are tons of people who want one and two games per bundle I’m a little jealous of people in the UK.
    EDIT: Didn’t notice till now it’s a basic wii u in the Wii U party and Just Dance bundles.

    • Mario

      You are a crazy Deadpool!

  • Aaron Pollard

    Nintendo, you’re being too awesome

    “UK getting three new Wii U bundles”
    Wrong! Those bundles will be released in EUROPE.
    If there’s news concerning Europe, WiiUDaily always writes UK instead of Europe.
    Why?!

    • Byakugan

      Because maybe the admins of this site are from the UK and so they are biased towards their own country. Although UK seems to be the primary focus when it comes to EU market (since it’s probably the biggest market in EU), so it could also be that.

      • wiiudaily

        Relax. We’re not in the UK and we’re not biased for the UK. Nintendo has officially only announced these bundles for the UK with UK prices.

        • DennisJKA

          They were officially announced for Europe without a price suggestion in € Euro because retailers in the EU set their own prices.

          And I’m not talking about this particular article only, but basically every article concerning news for Europe only “UK” is mentioned.

          It’s not a big thing, but it’s just not right.

          • Theiz Zzee

            It’s probably just because that is the biggest market in the region like the United States is for North America and Japan for now is for Asia.

          • Majora’s Mask

            All of you are wrong they say UK because most of the other countries dont get the products from nintendo for example in Greece i get everything the UK does but everything has a label of nortec a comany that brings the stuff to greece and some other nearby countries

          • wizard5

            There are bigger things in this world that warrant a “not right” status – This isn’t one of them. Relax.

      • Peter Paul

        U.K.is not a country but a group of countries. England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.The U.K.is not part of the E.U. That is why they still uses pounds and not euros.

        • sd

          Northern Ireland, not Ireland, you will get strung up if the Irish see that.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Personally, I think any country makes a fuss about anything that someone might say.

          • Dáibhí wotshissurname

            Yeah, I’m from Northern Ireland and there is a big fuss over whether it’s part of the UK. So if you state that NI is British or Irish, then you could be offending either side of the argument.

            It gets pretty nasty. There are terrorist groups in the place and occasionally there are parades. They are often restricted in routes but loads of paraders want to get into the “Irish” areas to start up trouble. I have to be careful as to who I call myself in certain areas as my name is Irish (Although I God-forsaken country soon as possible)
            To summarize, don’t think it doesn’t matter if you say NI is Irish or British or whatever; It can be a dealbreaker.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Lame reason for people to be fighting over. That’s my point.

          • Jon

            Northern Ireland is under the same sovereignty so it is part of the UK. The legislature and everything comes from them so saying they can be argued that they are not the UK is just idiotic. If they don’t want this, then separate and join the rest of Ireland.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yeah, well some irish guys could string you up for saying that Northern Ireland is a part of U.K. too. :D

          • sd

            Yes they would, but less so than just saying Ireland as a whole is in the UK.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Does it really matter, though? Lol. I could care less what people think about where I’m from. Lame reason to rough up someone. :)

          • sd

            For me it doesn’t matter. I am english and as I said I don’t no of any English that would be offended by being called Irish or Scottish. But I have met many people from other countries that this does matter to. The first serious mistake I made was when I was in my late teens and I asked a Korean whether they were from the North or South. They seriously hated me for that, I was a teenager so what did I know.

            I didnt really expect all of the above comments in relation to this subject though.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I have a friend who used to date someone from Scotland. Whenever he got mistaken for being British,he got completely offended like it’s a sin and went on a rant on how the accents are different and the whole nine yards. I’m sure it’s not all, but I just think it’s silly to get all AWOL about it.

          • harelsen

            watch braveheart :3

          • ICHI

            I’m friends with a couple of scottish fellas and one of them (when he winds me up) sometimes gets referred to as ‘that Welsh twat’ as it drives him up the wall. This wind up doesn’t work on the others though.

          • 210stuna

            Right, I mean yeah if somebody doesn’t know the difference then they will most likely get your nationality wrong. Big deal, nobody cares. The only people who do is you and your people. If someone gets it right, that’s great, if not that’s because it was an honest mistake.

            Most languages have accents depending on the region, and most close minded folks don’t recognize that when they start to say “Oh those people are all brown, so they’re all Mexican” or “If you’re brown then you’re all Mexican to me”

            Shit even places in USA have people speaking different types of English (North and South). People in Mexico speak different Spanish than people in Central America. Places in Europe speak different English than America like in Australia too etc; It’s a world wide thing.

            News flash though: Nobody is going to take out their time to know the difference in dialect for every culture, sub-culture, region, language, group, the whole world. It’s always best to not jump to conclusions when dealing with these sort of things.

            TL;DR: Don’t judge a book by its cover

            -Hi Daniel! :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Very true. I just think we all get upset over nothing, but that’s human nature for you.

            Hi to you too! How are you? :)

          • harelsen

            i can see that :p

          • harelsen

            yeah but, one should really not mess with ireland about that. it’s complicated, one should start by looking up the IRA.

          • ICHI

            Its more complicated than just the IRA, beginning a long time before they existed, and a lot of it has been resolved. We who now have to inherit this world from the previous generations shouldnt let our pride or the things our parents did get in the way.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            My point still stands.

          • Dáibhí wotshissurname

            Would you not just shrug off these kind of things, this is terrorism we’re talking about. It’s kind of ignorant.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Terrorism isn’t really my problem, as it’s everywhere. It’s not being igorant, it’s a fact. Lol. It’s a lame reason to hate each other over what another person thinks. Yes, my point does stand on that. No use trying to change my mind on it. If that’s ignorant to you, then I’d say you’re ignorant for saying so, but I digress.

            Anyways, I don’t know why we are all on this topic, so I’m going to back to video games. Leave this topic to another forum. Good day to you. :)

          • ICHI

            No it doesn’t matter lol, on Steam I am from Afghanistan :)

          • harelsen

            yeah… but it is fact to :p

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Actually you are both right and wrong here. U.K. is a bit paradoxical in this sense. England, Scotland etc are countries, but they are not independent souvereigns. And that is the poltical definition of a country. So in a sense U.K. is a country too, as it is one single souvereign state.

        • Jon

          ok, for one, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (because it is only the Northeastern part and some Northern Islands in Ireland that are joined within the UK) are all “countries” united under the same crown and government making them essentially ONE country. That is why they have been making talks about Scotland separating from the United Kingdom which may happen next year. Secondly, the UK is part of the European Union and has been since 1973 however the reason they use the Pound vs the Euro is simply because they choose to keep it that way when they joined.

          • sd

            EEC in 1973, EU in 1992.

          • Jon

            Essentially the same thing, The EEC was just a predecessor of the EU before the EU was actually created in 1993.

        • harelsen

          ill have you know that the entire uk is in E.U… but they chose to still use pound above euros (it is not mandatory to use euro if you were to join E.U.).

        • ICHI

          What! Not that I can be arsed getting into this clusterf**k of a geography and politics lesson. The UK is in the EU and Ireland has Euro’s. Not having Euro’s as your currency doesn’t mean your not polotically aligned to the EU. There are at least 10 members of the EU who retain their original currency, you can have a biscuit if you can list which ones ;-).
          Oh and by 10 I mean I have grouped the countries of the UK (so no points for saying England, Scotland and Wales) as thats how their membership is included in the EU, of course that could all change with the current devolution talks of Scotland from the UK.

        • Yousif Alromaithi

          UK is part of Europe but I heard some Europeans say that UK think they are not part of Europe. UK is part of the European Union but some part of Island are not. In order to reach UK from Germany by car you need to drive through an underground so basically UK is an island and they never consider themselves European. Also take note that UK is not bound by European law similar to Switzerland. Also why argue it is still coming to Europe since Nintendo ships the games and their product to Nintendo of Europe which it’s headquarter is at Germany so the only thing the difference will be is the price.

      • DennisJKA

        EU is not the same as Europe since UK is not even member of the EU.

        EDIT: Sorry for that. Of course UK is a EU member state. I was confused.

        • Iván Enrique Garcerant Tafur

          UK is part of the EU but not of the Euro Zone. Confusing enough…

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            That’s true. They are not bound by European law and their politics but part of them.

        • Jon

          The UK is part of the EU….. It has been part of it since 1973, how do you guys not know this?

          • DennisJKA

            Yes. I got that confused. Of course UK belongs to EU, but not to the currency union.

            But still I wonder why the news editors use the term “UK” to refer to Europe. I know, I’m kind of making mountains out of molehills. But “UK” omits the other 27 member states of the EU (or the other 45 states of Europe).

          • harelsen

            jesus, did you just refer to our european countries as statesxD?

          • DennisJKA

            Yes, I did.

            From Wikipedia: “Member state of the European Union: A member state of the European Union is a state that is party to treaties of the European Union (EU) and thereby subject to the privileges and obligations of EU membership. Unlike the membership of an international organisation…”

          • harelsen

            you should read stuff on wikipedia a little more light hearted xP

          • harelsen

            so do you think that France is a state in E.U:?

          • harelsen

            not frome Europe maybe :P

        • harelsen

          EU could stand for EUrope for short ;)

      • sd

        If you use the term UK or English to refer to people from Scotland, N Ireland or Wales many of them will take offence with it. However its the correct way to refer to everyone collectively. English people will rarely be offended if you call them Scottish or Welsh etc.

        I guess if you are from America the closest example I could give you is if you called a Canadian American. They hate that, but most Americans do not get upset if you ask if they are from Canada. In my experience anyway.

        Oh and I dont think you used the Uk incorrectly, you didn’t state it was a country, but EU is not Europe. But hey my comment might explain why some people do not like it.

        • Iván Enrique Garcerant Tafur

          America is the name of a large group of two continents. North America has three countries, USA, Canada and Mexico. South America is still America, with 12 independents countries and two territories under European Flags. And that is even before to start counting Central America and Caribbean Territories.

          So, why call “American” only to the friends of USA?

          • Jon

            Um.,… North America has more than 3 countries….. The entire Caribbean is part of North America as well so that means Cuba, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, Etc.

            There is a lot of geography errors in this post today…..People really need to brush up in their geography.

          • Iván Enrique Garcerant Tafur

            Include Caribbean in North America is a new twist to me. In Latin America (where I am from) Caribbean is count as part of Central America. Since when English-speaker people group my continent in that way?

          • Jon

            Central America is North America. Central America is just the portion of the Continent that connected North America to South America but it is still part of North America.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Mexico is part of North America, not Central. Lol. I’ve known this for years. North and Central are just connected together, but they are different regions. I get what you’re trying to say, but to the world, they are separate.

          • Jon

            ok… great news about Mexico… don’t know why you brought it up when that is obvious…but I don’t know where you are from, but around where I am…..and places surrounding, Central America is part of North America as it is part of the same continent. Sure they are different regions, as a State is a different region in the US and a province the same for Canada. But as a whole, Central America is in North America as Central America is just a region in North America as Canada, USA (well, those are countries but you know what I mean) are also regions in North America. The response I was referring to in the first reply I made to that guy was he said North America has 3 countries which is far from correct.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Probably cause you edited your post and it was in response to what you typed earlier. He is correct, North and South are sub continents that make up one continent as the Americas, Central belongs to neither. It’s a region.

            I’m from the US btw, and that’s how I was taught in school. Maybe it’s different where you’re from. Neither Central or South are part of North America, they are all part of the Americas. North and South are sub continents. I can’t stress that any further Yes, Central America is a region, and is part of the Americas.

            That’s about as far as I go on this subject. :P

          • harelsen

            we have six continents, not five :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You mean 7. Lol.

          • harelsen

            we seem to have learned different models of the way we distinguish continents, at my school we only had 6.

            south and north america, europe, asia, africa and oceania..

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Where I’m from, Oceania is a region, and Australia is a cotinent. Yeah, I would say so. I’m from the U.S. I think all countries have their own idea on geography. :P

          • Jon

            If you don’t include Antarctica then you have six….. but Antarctica is a continent so there is 7.

          • Jon

            Wow… you need a new geography lesson. CENTRAL AMERICA IS IN THE SAME CONTINENT AS NORTH AMERICA MAKING CENTRAL AMERICA PART OF NORTH AMERICA. There is nothing you can say that will change that. If you were taught otherwise then you were taught wrong and those people should be fired. Go to google and EVERY source will tell you it is part of North America.

            As for editing my post, I didn’t except to fix one of the spellings of America where I missed the “i” so either you saw it in another post and thought it was in mine or you just decided to talk about Mexico.

          • harelsen

            we have 6 continents in the world :P

            North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania…

            if you are from brazil, then you are an south american… if you are from Cuba, then you are an north american… it’s just continents :p

          • Majora’s Mask

            OMG HOW ARE YOU NOT IN PRISON PSYCHO ? THE CONTINENTS ARE :AMERICA EUROPE ASIA OCEANIA AND ANTARCTICA . DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL WHEN YOU WERE A KID?

          • harelsen

            you seem to be trolling me :3

          • Jon

            Oceania is the region that the Australian continent is in. Oceania is not actually a continent,

          • Majora’s Mask

            In Greece Oceania is the continent and Australia a country if it was a continent where would new zealand be part of for example?

          • Jon

            Well, New Zealand is one of those weird ones. It is actually not on the Australian continental shelf so really it is not part of it. it is more part of a submerged continent (not one of the main ones) called Zealandia. Now, yes that is a continent however this is classified as a microcontinent so it is not considered as one of the main 7 continents. Though it is part of the region of Oceania but that is NOT a continent. If they teach you that in Greece, they are actually wrong. If you want, look it up on google.

          • Majora’s Mask

            Seriously? GREECE WRONG? but seriously depending on the region geography changes at my geography it says oceania is a continent so whatever you say wont matter

          • Jon

            Yes, you are taught wrong if this is what they teach you in Greece. It doesn’t matter what Greece teaches you, The rest of the world pretty much says this. Check on the internet and you will see that they all say, Oceania is not a continent. SO it does matter because your country teaches people wrong. Oceania is a region, not a continent. The Continent is Australia Which New Zealand is not part of, but New Zealand is on it’s micro-continent in the Oceania region.

          • Majora’s Mask

            wow caln your tits bro i have a friend in England who moved there recently and i asked him and he said his book also said Oceania is a continent so suck UK also teaches that

          • Jon

            Ahh, the good old book excuse. Well I am sorry, I have this thing call the Internet which agrees with me and the rest of the proper educated world. Yeah, I know. I made a harsh statement but I hate idiots. Why do I say you are an idiot? Because, the Britannica Encyclopedia which is a UK encyclopedia even says that Oceania is a region so to give me crap that a friend from the UK has a book and that the UK teaches that is a load of BS.

            you want a quote from it? here:

            “continent, World map [Credit: Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.]one of the larger continuous masses of land, namely, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia, listed in order of size. (Europe and Asia are sometimes considered a single continent, Eurasia.)”

            Do you see Oceania anywhere in there? No

            And for Oceania:

            “Oceania, collective name for the islands scattered throughout most of the Pacific Ocean. The term, in its widest sense, embraces the entire insular region between Asia and the Americas. ”

            There, the Insular REGION so yeah, telling me that people in the UK are taught differently, that’s a bunch of BS

          • Majora’s Mask

            whatever get a life dont try to debate everything and you say to a Greek the word Eurasia like its something weird EURASIA IS A FUCKING GREEK WORD

          • Jon

            lol, Where did I say Eurasia was something weird? Why does it matter where the word “Eurasia” was derived from anyway when it has nothing to do with the topic. All I did was quote the encyclopedia after you told me some BS. It is like you saw that word used and had some kind of a break down. I hope all Greeks are not like this…. if they are, then maybe that is why your country is falling apart because I don’t even know how you took it as me talking like it is something weird.

          • Majora’s Mask

            ? GET A LIFE

          • Jon

            answer the question because I am really curious to know why you got all bent up for me saying a quote that had the word Eurasia

          • Majora’s Mask

            GET A REAL LIFE YET AGAIN YOU PROVE HOW BIG OF A LOSER YOU ARE GET A FUCKING LIFE!!!!!!!!!!

          • Jon

            ha ha. Oh my. are you that uneducated that you cannot answer a simple question? I want to understand why you think that someone that said the word eurasia it is them saying it like it is weird.

          • Guest

            Let me be clear: Just because a lot of people in the world belong to a certain religion, it doesn’t make that religion the only “right/true” one. The same goes for this discussion about Oceania being a region.

          • Guest

            http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/V%C3%A4rldsdelar_och_kontinenter Oceania is both a region and a continent. Look it up. (Yes, it’s in swedish.)

          • Jon

            you should actually read that page before you make a statement. Here is the first line of that page from the Oceania link there.

            “Oceania (UK /ˌoʊʃɪˈɑːniə, ˌoʊsɪ-/[1] or US /ˌoʊʃiːˈæniə/),[2] also known as Oceanica,[3] is a region centred on the islands of the tropical Pacific Ocean.[”

            They do say that the term is often used more specifically to denote a continent comprising Australia and proximate islands so to refer it, but it doesn’t actually say it is a continent.

          • Guest

            I gave you the wrong link, sorry. Please look at the new link.

          • Jon

            that link is still that map link. Why not actually click on the Oceania link inside that. They have it as Australia/Oceania. When you click Oceania, it says region in the first sentence, when you click the Australia, It says continent in the first sentence.

          • Guest

            “7 kontinenter: Nordamerika Sydamerika Antarktis Afrika Europa Asien Oceanien” As you probably can see, Oceania is listed as a continent.

          • Jon

            I went to school where people are properly educated. It is sad to see someone where all evidence is against him. Every encyclopedia will tell you that Oceania is a region and not a continent. I went to school and I was taught correctly unlike you it seems.

          • Majora’s Mask

            HAHA GREECE HAS THE BEST UNEVERSITIES OF THE WORLD SEEMS YOU DONT KNOW ENOUGH

          • Jon

            are you serious? How dumb are you. I have never once heard someone say they are going off the Greece to go to university. it is either, US, UK Switzerland, Canada and France. Sometimes Sweden. But Greece? Never. So because of this I decided to do some looking around and I have not found ONE university in Greece that is in the top 100… or 200….. In fact. I can really only find 3 on these lists. University of Crete, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and National and Kapodistrian University of Athens are all 300+ ranking on here.

            I checked these sites:

            http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/world-university-rankings/2012-13/world-ranking/range/001-200

            http://www.shanghairanking.com/ARWU2013.html

            http://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2013/oct/02/world-top-100-universities-times-higher-education

            http://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/world-university-rankings/2013#sorting=rank+region=+country=+faculty=+stars=false+search=

            http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/universityeducation/10295999/Top-100-world-universities-201314-QS-rankings.html

            Not one website will tell me that Greece has a university in the top 100 of the world. So again, Your BS is getting old. I am guessing it is people like you that is the main reason that Greece is a dying nation economically. If you want me to post more sites because I have checked at least 11 all from separate sources and countries more to make sure there was no biases. If they tell you these things in Greece. you really need to stop believing them and get with reality here. Greece is not some super educated power. None of it’s universities are great. Your education is not even that great as Greece is actually lower than the average compared to other countries (OECD) ( http://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2010/dec/07/world-education-rankings-maths-science-reading ).

          • Majora’s Mask

            OMG GET A LIFE LOSER GREECE IS FALLING BECAUSE THE GOVERMENT STOLE FROM THE PEOPLE NOT THE FAULT OF 11 MILLION ASSHOLE BTW IF GREECE DIDNT EXIST YOU WOULDNT BE FREE TODAY BECAUSE I DONT KNOW GREECE INVENTED DEMOCRACY AND FUCK OFF ASSHOLE YOU DONT EVEN HAVE A COUNTRY YOU CAN CALL HOME AMERICA ISNT YOUR COUNTRY BECAUSE ALL FUCKING AMERICANS ARE IMMIGRANTS OR AFRICAN SLAVES ASSHOLE GET A LIFE YOU ARE A LOSEEEEEEEEER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (i wanted to swear in greek but the wii u gamepad doesnt have greek)

          • Jon

            Yet that happened so long ago, it compares to nothing of what today is. Just because you were once a great nation does not mean you are the best of today. Sure Athens was the first to use democracy (not long lived but it did). But democracy would have been found regardless as the concept of the idea was there for quite some time. So to say we wouldn’t be here without Greece? that’s not true. Democracy would have arisen eventually.

            Secondly, I am not from the US, though I guess you could say I am American as I am Canadian. But to use the logic that I don’t have a true home is…. quite flawed. You claim I don’t have a true home because I am am immigrant. yet the same would apply to you as Humans first migrated from Africa into Eurasia. So in a matter of speak. we are all technically immigrants. But can you say that we don’t have a home? No, because we do have a home. Canada is my Home because it is where I was born, grew up and lived my life. Just because my ancestors can from Scotland (mostly all Scotland for me), Ireland and Whales does not mean that my home is from there or the fact that I don’t have a home. Home is my place to live, to love and where my friends and family welcome me. It doesn’t matter if it is in Canada, US, Europe, or whatever. If you feel that home is simply a place that your ancestors are from and that’s all, then I truly feel sorry for you.

          • Majora’s Mask

            all people are from Africa but moved to other regions but YOU RE IN AMERICA HARDLY FOR 300 YEARS btw you are an american CAUSE YOU RE FROM THE AMERICAN CONTINENT

          • Jon

            So you are saying time defines if someone has a home or not? That is just pathetic. No wonder you are the way you are. Secondly. I never said I wasn’t American. Thirdly, Settlers first came to North America in 1493, and English in 1607. Now for someone who claims they have the best education, you would be able to figure out that Europeans have been in North America for 520 years. and the English arriving 406 years ago, Not just hardly 300 years as you seem to claim. I hope you learned from this history and math lesson.

          • Majora’s Mask

            GJ YOU LAMER (NOT AN ACTUAL WORD) SO YOU WERE THERE SINCE IT WAS DISCOVERED HUH? YOU WENT THERE EXACTLY IN 1493 UNTIL 1750 or so AMERICA WASNT EVEN CONSIDERED A MAJOR COUNTRY and very few people lived there

          • Jon

            Actually……. when they landed they claimed the land as their territory making it part of their empires. It was considered part of the British, French, Spanish Empires and those were major nations and if they were part of them, they would have been considered major nations especially to those that claimed them. Also, I never said I was there when it was discovered. You are an idiot to have that kind of logic. Of course I was not there when it was discovered just as you were not there when Greece was officially founded. Also, why does the amount of people settling there matter? When and how many does it take? can you really justify a number of people before it becomes their home? Last time I check, a home is a place where you choose to live/ a place where you are currently Living. You cannot just say people don’t have a home because their home was only populated for X amount of years or there is only X amount of people in that location. That kind of statement is stupid and shallow.

            Also, Lamer is a word.

            http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/lamer

            It is a term that is derived from lame.

          • Majora’s Mask

            stupid americans dont understand sarcasm ………… and i am a Greek most likely i am at Greece since we came here

          • Majora’s Mask

            PLUS I CHECKED WIKIPEDIA AND SAID THAT GREECE HAS ITS OWN GEOGRAPHY it said that oceania is considered a continent and there 6 continents in total and america being both south and north the same

          • Jon

            Every nation has it’s own geography….. lol no country is the same shape, size, elevation, as for Wikipedia

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oceania

            First Sentence

            now I tend not to like Wikipedia because there are so many ways that people can change things and there tend to be quite a few contradiction especially when languages are translated so I tend to go to real publish encyclopedias. So, lets get started

            Britannica Encyclopedia:

            “Oceania, collective name for
            the islands scattered throughout most of the Pacific Ocean. The term, in its widest sense, embraces the entire insular region between Asia and the Americas”

            National Geographic:

            “Oceania is a region made up of thousands of islands throughout the Central and South Pacific Ocean. It includes Australia, the smallest continent in terms of total land area.

            New World Encyclopedia:

            “Oceania is a geographical (and geopolitical) region consisting of numerous countries and territories—mostly islands—in the Pacific Ocean.he exact scope of Oceania varies—some descriptions include East Timor, Australia, and New Zealand; other versions exclude them. The primary use of the term “Oceania” is to describe a continental region”

            So there you have it, Region, Region, Region/continental region.

          • Majora’s Mask

            you didnt go to wikipedia because it clerafies greece thinks of oceania as a continent

          • Jon

            Fine, you want Wikipedia?

            “Oceania (UK /ˌoʊʃɪˈɑːniə, ˌoʊsɪ-/[1] or US /ˌoʊʃiːˈæniə/),[2] also known as Oceanica,[3] is a region centred on the islands of the tropical Pacific Ocean.[4] Opinions of what constitutes Oceania range from its three subregions of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia[5] to, more broadly, the entire insular region between Asia and the Americas, including Australasia and the Malay Archipelago.”

            Source:

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oceania

            There, you happy that Wikipedia says the SAME thing as the other sources I gave? Wikipedia is not reliable because people can easily change the information and it can take several hours or longer before it is corrected. That is why Wikipedia is not a legitimate source when writing Literature reviews or within Scientific Journal articles and the reason why I myself don’t like using it. But since you insisted, I gave it to you and it says the same thing.

          • Majora’s Mask

            you didnt read the next part

          • Jon

            A denote continent. yeah I read that but that is saying, “to be a sign, symbol, or symptom of; indicate or designate” it is not saying it is one. Learn the difference

          • Majora’s Mask

            what denote means? i know very good english (dont comment that) but i have never heard this word

          • Jon

            you told me to read something you didn’t know what it meant…. good one.

          • Majora’s Mask

            i am not sure we saw the same page

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You forgot Australia. Lol. Also, Oceania is a region, not a continent. :P

          • harelsen

            xD then my norwegian text book is wrong, because they stated oceania was a continent :P

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Off with your head!!!

          • Dáibhí wotshissurname

            Oceania also refers to New Ginuea. Where I’m from, it’s a continent, but sure, whatever.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It depends on where you’re from. Where I’m from it’s not a continent. That’s what I’m saying. No reason to get all uppity over it. :)

          • Jon

            Then where you come from, you are taught wrong where 95% of the rest of the world will be told that Oceania is just a region.

          • Dáibhí wotshissurname
          • Jon

            “Antarctica (i/ænˈtɑrktɨkə/ or /æntˈɑrtɨkə/)[Note 1] is Earth’s southernmost continent, containing the geographic South Pole.”

            that’s the first line from your link there….. it even states that it is the Earth’s 5th largest continental area in that first paragraph…

            You sir failed and deserve a downvote

          • sd

            If you read what I put I said in my experience I have found that Canadians hate to be called an american, but Americans do not have an issue if you confuse them for Canadians. That is just my experience.

            By that Logic I could call cubans American. I really do not think that would be a good thing, do you?

        • person

          Basically, refer to people from the UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) as ‘British’, not ‘English’.

  • The Clockwork Being

    That’s what the people need. Bundles, bundles and more bundles. But besides these bundles there should different kind of bundles not only these one. A Mario 3D World bundle would be good and will make the Wii U sell like crazy. But what would really be good is a 3rd party game bundle. Let’s say a Ubisoft bundle with a black Wii U that includes Assassin’s Creed 3 & 4 in one bundle. A hybrid bundle would be good too. One that includes a Nintendo game and a 3rd Party game that people actually want, let’s say Mario 3D World+Watch Dogs.

    • Peter Paul

      How about making the Wii U on par with the Xbox One and PS4?

      • sd

        Or they could just keep doing their own thing and keep on releasing great games.

      • Simon Stevens

        Hardly fair to those of us who already bought the wii u, for it to be discontinued like that, nobody would trust Nintendo again, the Vita has awesome specs but STILL flopped in the sales so power isn’t everything, Like Vita, Wii u is in for a good wait for the good games to come out but once they do, the system totally pays off (soul sacrifice and persona 4 golden, EPIC titles), it’s just a matter of patience, I think VITA tv will completely turn that system around with remote play and other cool features and I imagine at some point, Nintendo will realize the full potential of their systems and do the whole remote play thing too…. sure would make sense looking at the setup, I don’t see anyone backing out anytime soon :) it’s like looking at some of the boxes Steam have to offer and laughing Sony and MS outta business cause there system’s are more powerful (way more powerful), it ain’t gonna matter because it’s all about the games, I could understand this argument if we were still refering to the original Wii but this system is HD and far more presentable so I really don’t see the problem.:)

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I don’t care too much for those games, but this will help boost sales even more in the UK, though. Smart move, Nintendo.

    • shanafan

      No love for NSMBU?

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Don’t get me wrong. I’m not hating on Mario, I’m just over most of the games that relate to him with the exception of Mario Kart and Smash Bros. There’s always a new generation that will keep his legacy going.

        • Simon Stevens

          I’m not really a fan of the new super mario bros series but got a lot of love for the galaxy series and the upcoming 3d world is gonna be great if it’s anything like 3d land, it’s usually the Zelda’s that sell the system to me but this time round it wad actually wonderful 101, reminded me so much of viewtiful joe

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    Bundle’s have been announced for all of Europe not just Uk I have gotten confirmation for all bundles in the Netherlands as well earlier today at a gamestore.

  • Tecpedz94

    I ordered my wii u yesterday from amazon. I was waiting for a great bundle but i found it for 284$ (deluxe edition obviously) and it was the last one so i just bought it…..

  • Iván Enrique Garcerant Tafur

    Any idea of when Nintendo release these packs in America?

  • Aurélio

    Sad how we have no bundles like these here in Brazil. We already pay twice its price, due to import fees and will never put our hands in something like that. I’m willing to buy a Wii U. It’s decided it’s gonna be my family’s “next gen” console but I don’t feel like paying U$600,00 for a “no-bundle” version (import fees, remember?). Nintendo could start making its products here, so we could afford the price. And if you think that would be impossible, please know that Microsoft did that with Xbox 360.

  • Rinslowe

    Solid holiday bundles…
    Can’t argue with that logic.

  • William Short

    Now for those who get one of these bundles, please pick the following games
    Watch Dogs
    Wonderful 101
    Rayman Legend
    Square Enix game, keep forgetting the name( so we can get KH3 and FF)
    Call of Duty Ghost
    Please Most Wanted U, Fifa 13 so we can get those franchises on Wii U from EA
    Assassin Creed IV
    Sonic Lost World
    We need the 3rd Party support

    • Sonic the Hedgehog

      Well, I’m happy to tell ya, the Wii U has my full support!

    • Simon Stevens

      We have third party support, just be patient, once the next gen games roll out, there’ll be a ton of support, right now, there isn’t many next gen games, even ps4 and Xbox one don’t have it, most games are still coming out for the last gen systems.

  • Ducked

    I hope North America gets the NSMBU bundle like I predicted months ago

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    I wonder that this bundles are coming to NL

  • Tobias Naustdal

    i think it would be the best if they referred to continents…

  • Guest

    will undoubtedly be a failure sorry bro this site just spout b.s

  • Noteak

    Who else feels a little jipped when it says that the New Super Mario Bros U + the Super Luigi U expansion can be put on one disk?

  • MujuraNoKamen

    Good, I’m sure these will do well. Although, I’d have thought they’d have used the Premium Wii U’s rather than the 8GB ones.
    As successful as these party game bundles will be I hope and pray they do some for the hardcore games to appeal to both markets – just look how well Zelda did. If not actual bundles, then at least do special offers in store to get people aware of AC, CoD Ghosts, WD, Deus Ex etc. If Nintendo can [finally] publicise the variety of games and Wii U’s appeal to hardcore and casual alike, then that combined with the $100 difference between it and PS4 (and $200 between Wii U & XBone) will ensure that Wii U will do well this holiday.
    – Also do a Mario 3D World bundle – as if you wouldn’t :)

  • Yobrolo

    these bundles scream “casual gamers come and buy this ” Sad too see Nintendo trying to cater for the lowest sort of gamers.

    • Fred

      Ther’es nothing sad or low about this. I love that Nintendo makes hard core games AND casual games!

      • Yobrolo

        It shows that thy put a big focus on casual. And thy are not getting them

        • Fred

          They’re not getting the hard core fans either so hopefully they’ll soon figure out how to make it sell better.
