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.
Summary: This set is an exceptional value. I had been holding out on the Wii U for a while, waiting for something like this to come up. After working a few 60 hour weeks, I paid for my PS4 and decided to upgrade the old lady's Wii to a Wii U. And? Wise decision. While I'm still not a fan of the massive Game Pad, the sheer amount of enjoyment you can get out of this package is incredible.
Summary: I got my Wii U few months ago and, the more I experience the more I love. my only regret is not getting the bigger hard drive. Though if you bought the 8 gig like I did you can upgrade to 32 gig with a SD card which are not hugely expensive. I enjoy playing on gamepad and not tying up the TV. I also like i can play a game in my bedroom instead of having to stay in my living room where the tv is.
A little sparse on titles rightnow, but a good buy

Summary: Got this for my 23rd bday from my girlfriend. She likes it a lot for mario u and there will be a new good title released every month after this so it will get better, but as of July 23, I have only bought mario u for it.
Summary: The Wii U is the next generation of Wii.. The Next Generation System from Nintendo.. and going by what I have seen.. the Next Generation is looking good... now on to the pluses and minuses... + The Wii U system is nice and compact..the design is really good and small - Well the AC adapters for everything takes up a little room.. and there are a lot of wires... - The game pad is huge and can be uncomfortable to work with when you first use it..
Summary: I've been a Nintendo buyer up until the Wii. I skipped out on that console because I wanted a more traditional controller. I didn't "get" the wiimote thing. It was fun on a party basis but I couldn't see myself sitting down to play a long game with it, which makes me the kind of person Nintendo is trying to win back. So I waited for their next console--the Wii U. It fixes some of the concerns I had with the Wii and adds some new novelties. So I bought.
Summary: The Wii U is a good console that offers multiple functionality, it has a simple design, easy to setup, has neat games in its early run since it was released. I must admit that I bought the Wii U to play one game, and that is Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the online functionality, and I did not regret doing it. I was really skeptical about buying the Wii U for just one game, as it would seem stupid in doing so. That's what I thought at first.
