    Only two weeks left until the Wiiu launches here in Europe, I feel screwed by the fact the US already got it.

    But yeah here we EU and Japanese guys can hype the crap out of it! ;D

    Here are the packages of the European release:

    Basic package:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Premium Package:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    ZombiU package
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Here are the launch games:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    No Ninja Gaiden T_T

    Which ones will you be getting on launch?

    I'll get:

    New Super Mario Bros. U
    Warriors Orichi 3 Hyper Ed.
    Nintendo Land(Included with my console)
    Tekken Tag Tourn. 2 Wii U Edition

    Now discuss!

    Damn Nintendo !!! They came up too late with this !
    The Wii U should have come out a year ago, I'm telling you.
    A lot of people moved from Wii or PS360 to PC gaming, due to a luck of graphic/processing power improvements.
    Me myself I played everything out there for the Wii and then eventually a few months ago decided to get a gaming PC to catch up on all the multi platform gaming goodness that I've been missing in the past 5 or 6 years....

    Now that the Wii U is finally here, I strangely don't feel compelled to get one on launch date, as I'm perfectly happy to play Black Ops II on my PC, but still I feel kind of annoyed that the Wii U came in so late into the game....

    Oh yes, I'll get one ( I really like the premium package ) , but it'll be in a few months, possibly years before I'll do it, while I'm waiting for the games library to grow and consolidate.

    Rayman Legends got delayed, and thus it's no Launch Title.

    Anyway, out of the list you've put up, I'm getting:
    New Super Mario Bros. U
    ZombiU (included with Console)
    Nintendo Land (included with Console)
    Rayman Legends (after Launch)
    Assassin's Creed 3 (or should I get it for the Xbox 360?)

    Or South America. I read Chile gets it the 10th of December.

    Still...personally, I would be more disappointed if I was living in Japan right now. I mean...the things are PRODUCED there. Why the fuck does America get it first?

    Oh, and the good news: by the time it gets here, we'll already know from the reviews which games are worth getting. :) *



    Anyhow...I'm getting the premium package. Most likely, I'll pick up zombiU as well (if it gets even halfway decent reviews).
    I don't think that release game list is accurate anymore: rayman legends is postponed (if not, that would CERTAINLY have been an instant-buy).

    I'm also doubting between Batman, AC3 and ME3, but since AC3 isn't that great and I'd rather wait for a trilogy on the latter, Batman is probably going to be my choice.

    Oh, and perhaps Trine 2...depends on how it looks.





    *yes, I'd trade with the US anytime. But still...

    Thanks! This was a copy paste from another website. -.-;;;;

    Get Wiiu version! ;o Hmm the 360 version is cheaper tho.(Dunno where you live, if you live near the Hague, get it at Bart Smit Rijswijk, it is cheapish there)

    I think the basic pack is way to expensive compared to the premium. In NL the basic pack is 299 euro and the premium pack 350 euro, so for 50 euros more you get a lot more, there is just no reason to buy the basic pack

    Yeah I agree, only at Gamemania they are a bit cheaper, the zombiu pack for 364 euro. So might get that one (if I have the money)
