    Hello!

    What color Wii U are you going to buy ?

    I was thinking about getting the White (aka. Basic Set), because it is looks better (at least for me), but it doesn't come with all the bells and whistles like the Deluxe Set version. I don't care about the internal memory since you can upgrade that with an external USB HDD.

    So, what do you guys say ?

    Edit: I have made a decision, and I have pre ordered a Deluxe Set version. :)

    Note: there's also a premium edition, which is black but comes with zombiU and that pro controller thing. It'll have everything from the extended version minus nintendoland.
    I'm not sure if it's also available in the US, though.

    (quick google result picture:

    )



    Anyway: I'm going with the extended version. Would've gone for the standard if it was black. And I would've gone for the premium pack if it wasn't for that pro controller...WHICH ISN'T THE PROPER CONTROLLER FOR ZOMBIU TO BEGIN WITH!

    Hmm I like the ZombiU bundle more. Even with an additional $50, we do get an extra controller.

    And it's ZombiU. :)

    Black unless you're a white supremacist.

    You keep your Black Wii away from me!!! lol

    All jokes aside I am getting 2 at launch and while I would rather they both be black, I will buy them even if all they have are white ones.

    I just wish each package had both colours available. I personally really want the deluxe, but think the Wii U's black design is quite hideous.

    Color-preference-wise I would have gotten a white one, because I just like it more.

    But the Black delux model is just too good of a deal, since you get NL and all the other stuff for just 50 bucks. I don't even count the extra HDD as well, since both versions won't be enough and I have a two TB External HDD laying around which I'll hook up to it and still the Delux model is a great deal!

    I'm getting the white one (since I, uh, messed up my preorder, so it's my own fault), but I did consider the pros and cons of either package. Sure 8GB isn't much, but I've a 500GB hard drive so I can't complain. Plus my wallet isn't going to cry as much come the 18th; plus I didn't want Nintendo Land, it just doesn't appeal to me.

    Seriously Gahars, I had that in my head when I read the topic.


    I had convinced myself to get the Basic package, pre-ordered and paid for, but I might have a chance to get a Deluxe instead. A small chance, but a chance nonetheless.

    It's really annoying when companies differentiate packages and the features by color, because I prefer the white, but of course the black is the better deal with the extra stuff you're getting (yes, I do consider the stands and cradle worth it, plus the memory since I typically don't like to have to deal with switching out HDDs).

    Tekken Tag Team Tournament is supposed to take up 18gb digital... if you plan to seriously buy digital releases, you're going to have to use HDDs anyway.

    I'm going to buy the deluxe one. The black just looks better to me, plus all the little accessories and promotions being sold with it are rather nice xD
