Summary: I understand that the purchase price is a little higher then the MSRP. But that is NOT why I purchased it from Amazon. I know very well that I could have gotten it cheaper. I am a very frugal person but some times being frugal needs to give way to Convenience. I was unable to go out On Black Friday to get My New Husband (We will be married this year on Christmas eve before Midnight Mass) this for Christmas.
Summary: I really like the Wii U. In my opinion, Nintendo games have tended to be uniquely fun and imaginative, and Nintendo exclusives were a big reason I decided to get a Wii U. Although the hardware specs are very modest, even for a 2012 game console, Nintendo has still dazzled me, like I hoped they would, with what I think are beautiful, really fun experiences like Pikmin 3, Super Mario 3d World, Super Mario Bros U and Super Luigi U!
Summary: Awesome bundle...if it's not on Amazon (got ours from Best Buy). Comes with the Deluxe Set accessories (Gamepad charging cradle, Wii U stand, Gamepad stand), and a 2-in-1 disc for NSMBU/NSLU. There is also a Deluxe Digital Promotion that gives you eShop points back when you download games on the Wii U. The 32 GB (25 after software) should last a while, as save data is only MBs (we're only downloading Wii Sports Club).
Summary: Like most people I was hesitant to pick this up because of all the mediocre reviews. I'm a 28 year old married working professional (pediatrics resident) and like many adults I don't have time to spend playing hours and hours of video games. I wanted something I could pick up recreationally and just have fun with (although i do look for a deep meaningful gaming experience, as well). I also wanted something I could use for party games with other people.
Summary: too bad target is selling it for $299.99 + $25 gift card + free shipping + 5% off with your target card + $29.99 2 yr warranty (which covers your console and up to 5 games if your console damages your games)
Summary: I bought this bundle as a birthday/Christmas gift for myself and am so in love! I hesitated for awhile; I thought I was happy with my old Wii, but alas, I was craving the new games out only for Wii U. I'm not a "hardcore" gamer, but would describe myself more as a casual gamer. I find the Wii U to be pretty user friendly for the most part. The game pad is pretty neat-o. I recommend getting your hands on the Nintendo Land game to get the hang of how the game pad works.
Nintendo's design and gameplay is as solid as ever - this sleeper system is waking up!

Summary: As a longtime Nintendo fan, i consider myself a late adopter of the Wii U. There didn't seem to be any must-buy titles and even the name somehow put me off. That was certainly a mistake as the Wii U has quickly become one of my favorite Nintendo systems ever. Mario's universe, both in the excellent side-scrolling 2d platformers included in this bundle and in the must-own Super Mario 3D World looks amazing in HD.
Summary: I picked this bundle up @ a local Fred Meyer for $299.99 on Friday. Only have the 2 games that come with it. Both games (Super Mario Bros. U, and Super Luigi U) are on one disc. The games are great if your an 80's kid that still enjoys Mario, like me. Happy to have those games over the Wii U Sports games! Setting up the system isn't too hard. There are some pieces that come with it, which are stands for the system & controller/gamepad.
