If you able to sell the code, the people who got the deal at kmart are pretty damn lucky lol

 

I just hate digital tbh

 

It kills me when I can't see my favorite games because I bought them digital.

Pretty nice deal overall. A custom gamepad (like the Zelda one) could have been cool but I think this will move a lot of systems, especially with the second free game.

Nice :)

Just bought a Wii U and was definitely planning on getting Mario Kart 8. Now I'll have to decide whether I want Wind Waker or Pikimin 3. Though I would prefer physical copies of each.

Here is a link:

So, this free game deal is for any copy of MK8 purchased or only the one that comes with this bundle?

Any copy, from what I'm reading.  Digital or Retail--for the Retail copies, you'll have to register with Club Nintendo.  For Digital, I imagine the club nintendo link w/ your eShop account may have to already be established.

 

I have MK8 pre-ordered at Best Buy through GCU w/ the $10 Gas Card and $45 worth of Certs, so I'm very happy about this.

You may want to mention the free game (without buying the bundle) in the topic.

Woo! I was contemplating snagging Wii Party U for the past few months, glad I don't need to anymore! Also very glad because that game is a game I would want digitally.

Wow, seems like this is a pretty late reveal, at this point I really didn't think it was coming.

I don't see why there couldn't have been a red wii u,

 

lol is there a reason why companies go all out on colors?

Does it cost them money or something

Agreed.  But I don't feel that way about my Steam collection, so I know it isn't just the fact that it's digital.  One of the great things that Steam provides is the feeling of an actual library, even though it's digital.  If the consoles would catch up in their digital services, I would be happy to spend more money on digital versions.

 

I've had fun with my Zelda Wii U console since I bought it on release day, but MAN....  This is a great bundle.  Kind of tempted to buy it again and sell my Zelda console.

Free game! Woo! Seems to make sense to go for one of the first party games that's been holding steady at $50-60: Pikmin 3, NSMBU, or Zelda.


Shameless self-promotion: I write words at the Everybody's Talking at Once blog and cast pods on the ETAO Podcast. They're about games, among other things!

Due to low sales, they probably have a quite a few black Wii U's in inventory. It's better for them to go through their current inventory than produce new, red Wii U's.

Cool bundle! Already have a Wii U though so thanking the OP for bringing up the free game! Was already planning on getting Mario Kart for sure, so I guess I can get a free Wii Party U since that's the only one I don't have.

Wow, the free game with just buying Mario Kart is an amazing deal!  I am shocked that Nintendo is doing this, but I guess the very low numbers they have to provide extra incentive.  I wonder if they will do more deals like this with Smash Brothers later.

Agreed fully, there's nothing wrong with digital done right.  That includes significantly cheaper prices and the ability to play your game on any machine you use.  Nintendo has a LONG way to go.....

 

That's really cool about the free digital game though, but I wish they'd widen the selection some.  I already have Pikmin 3/NSMBU and have 0 interest in WWHD/WiiU Party.  Not to mention that all 4 have been on sale at one point or another.  But free is free, I guess I will go for WWHD, at least I may play it eventually.....

Oh man this is SO tempting. 

 

It still seemed a bit overpriced to me.  If you don't mind a white wheel, you can get the Wiimote+ and the wheel for around $40.  But unless you luck into a Sams/Sears clearance jackpot I guess this is the best deal out there now?

 

 

Didn't even think of that, lol.

Defienetely should not be in business :p

 

In Nintendo's defense, a red console would look hideous.  This is a device that's going to be sitting in my home, so black is pretty essential, but there's no way in hell I'd go red.  It's one thing to have a rainbow for handhelds, but quite another for consoles.  Still, I wouldn't have minded a checkered flag or something on the system + gamepad....

MUCH better  :D  I'll actually have to think about it for a minute now lol.

 

Actually, now that I looked, it looks like that's Europe only.  NoA is only giving us 4 choices.  god fucking damn I know it's bad taste to whine about free stuff, but I swear it's like NoA goes out of it's way to make me bitter and find new ways to make me regret supporting them, or WiiU in general.  Why can't they offer us the same list?  And what the hell has been up with Europe the last few years, they've become really awesome as of late....
