    I'm being tempted on buying a Wii U in 245 USD, the thing is that it is the 8GB version, but it includes a Gamepad.

    Should I go and expend my money on it? Is that a good offer or just meh?

    Definitely not. No, it's not me being a hater, it just sounds like a really bad deal. You can get an 8GB refurb for $229 at Gamestop and those guys have extortionist prices to begin with. You'll find better deals than that.

    u will want the Deluxe 32GB system because that extra space really comes in handy without having to shell out more money for a external

    I... am not so sure about that. Even with the 32GB's he's still going to have to grab a USB HDD if he really wants to use the system for online content - 8GB and 32GB are both a laughable amount of storage for a home console. With that it mind, it's really same difference which model he picks.

    Hell no. That's ovepriced for a Basic Wii U not to mention you can get a brand new Premium Wii U for $299 as advertised per Nintendo.

    I'm sure you can get it cheaper from eBay though.

    I've still got around 20 GBs free to use but that's because I don't give a toss about digital format so it doesn't get full.

    You can get a 32GB WiiU (w/Nintendoland) direct from Nintendo for $200.

    They say they're refurbs, but lots of people that have gotten them say they're actually brand new.
