    Great idea or amazing mistake?

    GBAtemp help me spend or waste £180.

    At least no one can accuse me of not putting my money where my mouth is.

    Of course you chose black.
    Contrary to popular belief, the black model is the exact same size as the white model.

    £179 is a pretty damn good deal and good thing you went with that one rather than ZombiU's pack which comes with the "Pro Controller" but it's not very good to make it worth it.

    With the GamePad you'll be doing all your gaming on it, YouTube, Netflix and internet browsing.

    I actually play more on the GamePad than the TV itself, I know that I should play on the TV to enjoy the HD graphics but I don't really care about that since they look really good on the GamePad too.

    Games you should pick up for your Wii U:
    * The Wonderful 101
    * Super Mario 3D World
    * New Super Mario Bros. U
    * Rayman Legends
    * Zelda: Wind Waker HD
    * Sonic Lost World
    * Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
    * Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
    * Lego City Undercover
    * Need for Speed: Most Wanted
    * Pikmin 3
    * Bayonetta 2 (TBA 2014)
    * Xenoblade 2 (TBA 2014)
    * Super Smash Bros. 4 (TBA 2014)
    * Mario Kart 8 (TBA 2014)
    * Zelda Hyrule Warriors (TBA 2014)
    * Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze (TBA 2014)

    And one extra... Marvel Avenger's Battle for Earth only if you like Marvel characters and tapping games-type, and this version is quite an improvement over the Kinect one.

    I'm actually thinking about cancelling my order now. The price of the unit if fine but the gaem library is pretty shitty in all honesty. I only want Mario and Wonderful 101 out of what;s been released and I'm less than convinced of the system's future.

    You should cancel it. Why? I have no reason. I sat down this summer and thought of every reason I should buy one and the only thing I could come up with is the future ssb and Zelda. So I figured wait until it gets a lot cheaper and buy used.

    I don't think the games on the system right now are bad but knowing your tastes Emigre I wouldn't think the Wii U would be up your street at all

    Dude, don't want to sound mean or anything, but don't come back crying when we have Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem. :) There's also rumors of a Persona game coming for the Wii U, though ATLUS is keeping shut about it.

    Rumors?
    The only Persona rumors we got were from Nintendo fans.
