Not a deal in my opinion. Anyone who buys the console would be stupid to get the white one since the Black is a much better deal and with nothing worth getting other than NSMBU.

People who got the basic version are stupid? Please, elaborate.

I guess I should change that to uninformed. The Black console for $50 more is the one to get since it has more than double that in extras. But I'd still pass on the system until at least next Thanksgiving and by then we may have news on a new Xbox or Playstation console.

Black Console Extras

32 GB internal memory vs 8GB
Nintendo Land ($60 game) great kids game
GamePad Cradle
GamePad Stand
Console Stand
Digital Deluxe Program

So I guess Microsoft never should have released a 4gb console either, huh?

$10 off not 10% and I assume it only the regular console not the deluxe.

What if I'm not interested in downloading software (negating the need for extra storage) not interested in Nintendo Land, plan on having the system sitting horizontally, and prefer white?

Then should I still get the deluxe model?

I hope you don't plan on trying out any demos. I think the FIFA one is 11GB.

Ninja Gaiden 3 rehash says hi.
So does BlOps 2 and AC3, as well as Arkham City. Granted you didn't play them.

A better deal would be using a red card (5% off order) at Target plus there spend $50 get a $10 GC promo

Exactly. I got the basic model because I don't plan on buying digital and I am not a fan of black consoles.
All of my consoles are white, and the deluxe extras don't really justify a purchase for me.

You can always add your own external HDD if you have an extra.

Really, you want to get those games for the Wii U? I'll stick with my :ps3: &:360: for major console releases.

i have the deluxe and let me tell you
1: nintendo land sucks!
2: the plastic shits are useless
3: 32 gb are nothing, you can just use a external hd and thats it.

i did think the same as the other guy "oh the deluxe one is better" but not really...

your choice.. "niga black" or "white red neck"... its the same thing :D

Is that what you "here"?

I have the deluxe and yes the cradle charger is great. However, they both come with a charger. The basic you will just have to plug the adapter directly into the controller. Not too hard to do.

You really sound more and more ignorant with each post you make. Maybe go find something you actually know about and post on that. I "here" that is the cool thing to do.

My $330 1Terabyte White Wii U says high.

Honestly the extras in the Deluxe are crap unless you want Nintendo land since the digital promo is only good for 2 years and you do not get anything until you spend $50.

Honestly the only reason Onprefer the Whote color is because every system is black now and that gets boring.

Well to be fair he did call this "not a deal" when in reality he was saying the Deluxe is better than the basic. Even if it is just $10 it is a cheaper price for the Wii U. I could care less really since i thought the deal was for 10% off so what the Fuck do I know. :)

As I said before if you really want a deal buy either console version at Target since you can get 5% off if you have a red card and a $10 GC for spending over $50. I'm not trying to be a dick this is just my own opinion.

The deluxe system's Nintendo Land game comes in the same blue case as any retail game.
