Default Wii U Official Release Details

Earlier today Nintendo announced details for their upcoming Wii U console while no CE releases have been announced yet Nintendo rarely disappoints so I'm sure many of you are interested in getting your hands on this console.

The Wii U will come in two versions, and these versions vary slightly between Japan and the rest of the world.

In America the Wii U will be released on November 12th and receive a "Basic" bundle for $299.99 (USD), or a "Deluxe" bundle for $349.99.

In Europe the Wii U will be released on November 30th and receive the same bundles as the US, priced at £210 and £250 respectively.

In Japan the Wii U will be released on December 8th and receive a "Basic" bundle for 26,250 Yen, or the Premium bundle for 31,500 Yen.


TheÂ* "Baisc" set will include:
  • the console in white with an 8GB hard drive
  • a Wii U GamePad (the screen controller) in white with stylus
  • an HDMI cable
  • a power adapter for the console
  • a power adapter for the Wii U GamePad
  • a Sensor Bar for Wii Remotes (not included in Japanese bundles)
TheÂ* "Premium"/"Deluxe" set will include:
  • the console in black with a 32GB hard drive
  • a Wii U GamePad in black with stylus
  • an HDMI cable
  • a power adapter for the console
  • a power adapter for the WiiU GamePad
  • a vertical stand for the console
  • a charge dock for the Wii U GamePad
  • a membership to the "Nintendo Network Premium" service
  • a Sensor Bar for Wii Remotes (not included in Japanese bundles)
  • a copy of the game NintendoLand (not included in Japanese bundles)
Lots of other details have been revealed about the console's hardware various accessories and launch window games but I'm sure we'll get a lot more details on those in the coming months leading up to launch.... View this article on the HomePage.

Nice to see all territories will be paying a similar price for the WiiU.
Of course I will be ordering one of these for day one. Im sure that if it bores me within a week or two I will maintain a reasonable return on it.
:p

I would guess not, Nintendo doesn't seem to like region free game

The UK prices aren't confirmed, I'd guess at £229.99 and £279.99. I'll wait till a price drop on this due as it seems a lot for something with 8gb memory and I don't want to fiddle about with SD cards and USB drives.

I already pre-ordered mine (I was 2nd to pre-order at my store).

Based on the price differences there's no reason NOT to buy the Deluxe version... hard drive size aside it comes with a game for less than the price of the game, the hard drive is just a bonus.

if demand is high it will be worth it's weight in gold during the holiday season
if demand is mediocre and I don't like it I can probably get my money back easily enough
if demand is so low that it sits on shelves, at least it plays Wii games in HD and I don't own a Wii anymore, so it's worth that.

really you can't go wrong buying a console like this on release day.

Judging buy the fact that there was literally a line forming behind me at the store to place pre-orders, I'd say that it will probably sell very well at launch.

Where did you pre-order? Best Buy? GameStop? Just curious who is taking pre-orders in the US.
