If it was the Deluxe I'd be all over it. Not sure about this bundle. Is 8gb enough without a memory upgrade?

You can also plug in a usb stick from what i heard. Really there is no reason to get the black one unless you have to have black.

This might be a dumb question, but can I get rid of the gamepad after I do the initial set up? I already have super cheap pro controller from a clearance sale. I see the pads selling anywhere from 100-150 with bids on ebay. Sell the additional skylanders/nintendoland and you end up with semi next gen console priced from free-$50 without the gamepad. 
Just an thought.

not all games support the pro controller, only some and most games require the gamepad if even for a little so if you get rid of it then you going to be risking having a unplayable system for a good chunk of games. You also need it for the eshop and any of the apps on the wii u as well as games such as super Mario 3d world and nintendoland, zombi U and many others. It is the only way you can navigate the menus and stuff on the system to.

Spot on response.... I wish Nintendo would system update and allow for navigation on eshop and to play most games with just pro controller. Lame that I gotta get off my ass to grab the pointless gamepad just to bypass 90% of the time.

I thought you couldn't store actual Wii/Wii-U games on an SD card, just saves and stuff?

 

So basically we are left with slow ass USB 2.0 for game data. No thanks. I assume the minimal amount of internal storage is at least much faster than externals, every GB of that is precious (it's like we're living in 2004 here). The 32GB is a huge inconvenience, but you can probably at least work with it if you minimize downloads. I'm just pretending the 8GB models don't even exist.

Some of the storage space is used by the system software. The 8GB Basic Set has approximately 3GB available for data storage and downloads. The 32GB Deluxe Set has approximately 25GB available for data storage and downloads. and no you can not store actual games on a sd card

If you like, or love Skylanders, an all white system and don't mind missing out on the 10% back Deluxe Digital Promotion, then this is a great deal. I have the Zelda WWHD black Deluxe Set that I got for $282 (no tax) last year at Newegg, but if I didn't have one now I'd more than likely go for this bundle.

 

Aside from the yellowing or dingy brown looking color left behind on the nubs of the analog sticks over time if not protected, I actually prefer the all white system. Not only that, but fingerprints are harder and damn near impossible to see on white systems. A major plus there.

 

And honestly, looking back, the 8GB only isn't a big deal, IMO. I have a 250GB (232GB usable) Click-free portable external HDD using the "Y" cable setup and it works like a perfectly. 32GB on the Deluxe isn't really that much to brag about. It's obviously better than 8GB but at the end of the day it's still a crappy amount of space.

 

Again, worst thing here if you buy this model is you miss out on the 10% back Deluxe Digital Promotion. I'd highly recommend it otherwise! :). That green artwork is pretty awsome too! LOL.

Its like all of your posts start off making sense just with some typos but then half way through you remember you have a silly persona on CAG to maintain and try to be funny.

 

But for the guy asking about 8GB, you can just buy a cheap 32GB-64GB USB flash drive for $15-$30 most places and use that for extra memory. The 8GB will likely only have 3GB available after updates.

Looks like a good deal.

 

Though I'd like it in black, and have no real use for Skylanders, I don't see a better option anywhere.

 

The 3GB cap is what is keeping me from buying it right now, but if external support is that good, I may have to pull the trigger at some point today.

3GB cap? You mean the 8GB cap? I don't think I would need more space than that. I don't see myself downloading any games from the VC on it. Plus with the expandable storage option, this bundle is a no brainer.

5 of the 8 are system storage from what I've read.  Even Nintendo's website says you're only really getting 3.

Well, the OS features and latest update will leave you with around 3GB of usable space. With the 32GB Deluxe you'll have around 25GB usable.

I grabbed pretty much the same deal off of Groupon last week, just waiting for it to arrive now.  BTW, if you do grab one don't forget to hit up TRU for some cheap clearanced accessories.  I got an official charging cradle for $2.xx, a battery pack to extend the controller's charge time for $10 & a headset for $10 - and I think all of that stuff is even cheaper now.

I actually got this.  I have it now but You kinda need a external HDD.  I got a 1TB,  independent powered one from WD (my book) for like 60 refurbished.  Seems to be fine and I got it for "~260."  Seems worth it for the console that SSB will be on and other good Nintendo 1st party.

 

Although I will say I wish I kinda rather got that mario kart bundle (get that! less hassle)

Oh man, you sound like people in the GameCube era, back before Nintendo responded to not dominating the market for a generation by making one of the best selling consoles of all time. 

 

Until you see Nintendo hang an "Out of Business" sign on their front doors, do not count them out of anything.
