Best Buy and Future Shop are both listing a brand new Wii U Deluxe bundle for release on February 17th.

http://www.bestbuy.c...babbc27e25fen02

And

http://www.futuresho...348375d1771en02

Bundle will be $399 and includes the following:

-32GB Black Wii U system
-Black Pro Controller
-Copy of Zombi U
-Copy of Nintendo Land
-Exclusive Zombi U art book
-Digital Deluxe Promotion for 2 years

That's a pretty good bundle and I'm glad it includes Nintendo Land. This really should've been out at launch but I guess late is better than never. So anyone who was thinking about buying a Wii U soon, will you jump on this bundle?

If you plan on getting Black Ops 2 or something else that uses the pro controller, it's not a terrible deal. $50 more for ZombiU, the pro controller, and a flimsy art book.

If you're getting a Pro Controller anyway, it's basically getting ZombiU for free. So that's not bad. Still, I'm waiting for something better. I've just got too much to play.

Sweet I was thinking of getting a Wii U with a pro controller so free Zombie U works.

Huh? Future Shop is Canada only and your link is to Best Buy Canada. While I wouldn't rule out a US release, where did you get this information?

Son of a bitch. I bought a Wii U about two weeks ago and ZombiU... I could've had a free controller :( Gah. Oh well. it's.. not the best system, but not the worst. At least it isn't a 360. Also seriously want PS4. I would burn down Activisions headquarters for a PS4 right now.

For those that are on the fence, ZombieU is a great game. The best game ever? No, but it's a damn fine game, and refreshing because of how it takes advantage of the tablet controller. As a hardcore gamer, I really enjoyed it.

Not a bad bundle for those that can't wait for it. I'm gonna hold out for a better bundle or price drop though. Then the announcement of the next gen systems is around the corner. Ugh, too many games! lol

I hope not, I'd totally consider buying it if they released it here.

Meh. I thought this would be a price reduction due to the awful sales. I'll wait for the same-ish bundle to be $299 and I'll bite.

I don't get the deluxe digital thing for 2 years, isn't that program always good for people who buy the deluxe?

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

So you get a game and a controller for 50 more dollars.Saves about $50.

the controller should be worth it if you are interested in a Wii U

I'm not too sure how much you know about the system to say that.

The Pro controller doesn't work with most games and it's also completely incompatible with voice chat for online games.

The Pro Controller is very good. It works with every game except Mario U.

There is nothing wrong with the Wii U. It lacks games. Big Deal. It will rebound.

It is just odd timing by Nintendo and I don't think they did much to bring product awareness to the hardware either.

Good, hopefully this is a sign that zombie u and the other release titles will go down too.

Not a bad deal. ZombiU is one of the games I want, but I think I'll be holding off on getting a Wii U until a Zelda or Monster Hunter LE type console. I always seem to miss out of getting LE consoles since I'm usually an early adopter. ZombiU looks fun, NG3 razors edge (or Proper NG3), and especially Bayonetta 2 are definite games for me.

I'm borrowing ZombiU and I'm really enjoying it. If I didn't have a WiiU already, I would get this bundle.
