Aw, no deal on the Deluxe Wii U console? :(


I feel the same way. Missed the target giftcard deal, and am ready to pick one up but haven't found any good deals. yet...

We gotta disagree here. Frame rate issues aside, the gamepad pixel hunts are more annoying than using the controller and this version is missing the movie. The extra armor/attack does nothing for me either


I'm sorry, what? Pixel hunts? What is that referring to? The hacking sequence? Those are a blast.

I personally haven't seen any frame rate issues, I don't know what movie you're referring to, and I can't see why you would dislike the B.A.T. mode.

But opinions opinions lol. :bouncy:

Me either. I read about 'em. Never see 'em. Kinda like a Yeti.

I didn't have any problems with the graphics but the gamepad sequences really added nothing to the game. The map is not very good, either. It's easily the best retail port for the wiiu, but that's not saying much. This was my first time playing it. Arkham Asylum was a much better game all around.

I believe other consoles got the Batman Year One movie with the game. It's on Netflix, either way. Pretty good adaptation but the comic miniseries is very good.

Really there is no reason to hate the basic console. I asked an opinion question on this a few days ago. No real negatives. Just more positive towards the deluxe. IE: When you buy a game on the digital store you get a % back in digital store credit

Great deal for Batman. Best version of the game at the lowest price that any version has dropped to.

The WiiU console is also a good deal considering that you can take Nintendo Land and exchange it at a different store for a different game. That's what I did last time Best Buy had this exact same deal (back at the end of December / beginning of January)

Yes. It has enough storage space to download Trine 2 Directors Cut, which is all I care about in terms of digital stuff. I'll buy all my other games on physical disc.

Also if storage space for digital games is actually important to you, it's actually a much better investment to just buy the Basic system and then purchase an external HDD or a big USB flash drive to plug in.

Plus side of Deluxe

- % back on all purchases
- 4x more storage than Basic version
- Comes with FREE Nintendoland (Basic offers tend to include this now so it's not that big of a deal)
- Extra plastic
- ITS BLACK

EXTRA PLUS IF YOU GET THE ZOMBI U BUNDLE
- Zombi U ($60)
- Nintendo Land ($60)
- Wii U Pro Controller ($50)

A lot of savings!

I know some people want to get Basic because they plan on hooking their own HDD, so it's not that big of a deal.

I love mine because I got it for free from Burger King :bouncy: But the storage issue was resolved easily with a 120GB laptop drive I had sitting in my desk drawer. Just popped it into an enclosure and was good to go.

The Collector's Edition version came with this on physical disc (which I have), and the GOTY version came with a digital code. I bought both (traded in copy that came with CE after I beat it and rebought the goty for the extra content), but the code with the GOTY is expired now, I believe it expired at the end of March.

Sad that eshop card is full price. Thanks OP.

Apparently your comment was so full of rage and anger that you immediately fell asleep. That's a new level of rage.

Burgerking was doing a Wii u giveaway contest back in Oct 2012. You could get a free code via email to try it. Otherwise you entered you numbers off your receipt to try and win one. I got a free code and won on my first attempt. Recieved the Wii u right before Xmas.

Nice! Congrats on your win. Wish I saw this back then. Wasn't following CAG back then nor going to burger king.

So is Tomb Raider as good as everyone says it is? Planning to pick it up when it hits $20-$30 since it has not grabbed my interest yet and I already bought 3 release day games this year, so got to be tight on money.

I would of bought a Wii U with this sale if it was still $249.99 with the game..UGHH Getting close to my price point.That Zombie U bundle still got my eye, they dont sale that bundle at BB. So i have a feeling the big N has a more family friendly bundle up their sleeve. My nephew is 5 and he loves zombies lol but you know we need a wii sports like bundle or a mario kart that will be marketed better.

Can't wait till e3..

If you're looking for a game the family would like, I'd recommend Nintendo Land. I know it hasn't gotten the best reviews, but my family absolutely loves it.
We play the attraction tour mode all the time, and its a blast.


I'll be picking up Arkham City this weekend. I enjoyed it on the 360, so I'm looking forward to trying it out on the Wii U. At that price, why not? I can't see it going all that much lower.

It's amazing. And the thing is....you actually waste more money waiting for the pice to drop to $20 or $30.... By that time the trade in value will have plummeted as well.

Personally I think the way I do it is the most value conscious..., I bought at best buy day one for $60 got the $20 reward zone certificate....100%d the game within the first week and traded it back in at max value of $40.... Essentially not paying a dime....

:360: None  :xb1: Halo: MCC, Sunset Overdrive
:ps3: None :ps4: Destiny, Dying Light, Far Cry 4, GTAV
:wii: Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros  :3ds:  Super Smash 3DS, Tomodachi Life, Zelda: Link Between Worlds
:psp: Dragons Crown, more Destiny! Lol

I like to "KEEP" my games. I trade in only if the game was atrocious or worth more than what I paid.

To be honest though with TR I think I am going to redbox it over the weekend for free with multiple game rental codes and 1k it in a day or two. SO it will be FREE. Cause I dont think I care to own this one.

Is the headset any good quality wise? $8 seems like a steel, but I don't know regular price... Not sure how many games will use it either.

Unless you boost, expect the multiplayer to take a couple days.

Yea I know trust me. Lol i know too much about achievements. Had two friends get this done over the weekend so I should be able to do the same. This would be about my 300th completed game. I may not rent it just yet though since Bioshock Infinite has sucked me in ATM. Might finish that game first.
