Discover a wealth of exciting new ways to enjoy home entertainment with Wii U, Nintendo's next home console. With a revolutionary new touch screen controller, precision motion controls, and full HD graphics, a whole new world of play styles and gaming possibilities is on the horizon. The time is coming to truly expand your idea about what a game console is - and can be. The system launches in 2012 and includes the new Wii U console and amazing new controller.
Wii U Console: Premium pack includes:
A New Wii Console Experience:
According to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, "Wii U redefines the structure of home entertainment by fundamentally changing how the TV, the game console and the Internet function and interact together", he continues, "The experience enabled by Wii U and its new controller takes players deeper into their games, while reaching out wider than ever before to be inviting to all kinds of gamers".
Wii U combines motion-sensing gameplay with the ability to support full HD graphics. Each Wii U console will be paired with a new groundbreaking controller, with its 6.2-inch wide screen. Previously, video games played on home consoles have been confined to the TV and offered identical viewpoints to each player in a multiplayer environment. The Wii U controller enhances that experience with different viewpoints available in-game and in differing games/game situations. Also, watching TV and playing console games have been completely separate experiences. The new controller removes these boundaries, creating a more dynamic and fluid gaming and entertainment experience.
Within Single Player Games:
While in-game, the new controller can display information on its screen that does not appear on the TV. The information and viewpoint can also change in the new controller based on the orientation of its gyroscope.
Within Multiplayer Games:
The player using the new controller can have a different experience than those looking at the TV creating a wider variety of competitive and cooperative opportunities.
The New Controller
In addition to its 6.2-inch screen, the new controller also features an accelerometer and a gyroscope, a rumble feature, an inward-facing camera, a microphone and speakers. Adding these features to the Classic Controller button scheme -- two analogue Circle Pads, +Control Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons -- will enable a breadth of gameplay experiences while appealing to both casual and dedicated video game players. The Wii U system can also use up to four additional Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus controllers and is backward compatible to all Wii games and all Wii accessories. The Wii console has sold more than 86 million units globally and greatly expanded the overall audience for video games. Wii U aims to expand that audience even further.

Kids are delighted with Wii U console,however might suggest choice of titles for inclusion in pack.
The Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack was for my son's 8th birthday. I'm so happy with my purchase it is worth every penny! I will definitely be buying from Zavvi again. They offer good prices and an excellent delivery time. Thanks again Zavvi.
This Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack is brilliant! I advise anyone to buy it, don't hesitate over thinking about next gen Xbox/Playstation, this will be able to stand up to them!
The Wii U Console is as good as you've heard elsewhere. The Nintendoland game proves this. I'm waiting for Wii Fit U especially. Be aware that while an upgrade function from Wii exists, not all content can be transferred e.g while you gain with Wii U channels for Netflix & You Tube, you lose (for the moment) BBC iplayer. Miiverse is miles better than the Nintendo channel, and TVii is also coming. It's great that if the console is downstairs, the gamepad still works upstairs if you don't need the TV to play.
Wii U is a great console the Wii in HD with loads of great games to come like Mario and Mario kart and many others. If you liked the Wii you will love this get one.
Wii U Console is a great piece of hardware, hopefully game developers can unleash the potential. Portable screen that can be used for games and tv around the house, even if someone else is using the TV the Wii U is hooked up to. With Pikmin 3, Monster hunter ultimate and fire emblem coming this year the future looks good too.
I was very suprised by the wii u having owned the wii previously and to be honest not playing it much. The wii u is much more fun the asymmetric gameplay with included nintendoland is great fun with the kids. This is where the wii u is exceptional playing as a group with local multiplayer which is something microsoft and sony have moved away from in favour of online multiplayer. Speaking of online mii verse is brilliant the whole tone is much more friendly than other online services and some of the artwork drawn using the pad is unbelievable. In short really happy with my purchase a looking forward to seeing what nintendo and other developers have in store for this console.
Like many people, I had my reservations when it came to getting a WiiU or not due to the currently less than ample selection of games, but given the latest offer from Zavvi I decided to take the plunge and get one. And I am so very glad I did! Though I only have two games so far, I am fully sold on the gamepad being a great new addition to gaming with huge possibilities of what it can be used for. With games aside the system itself is absolutely amazing, from the way you can completely control all functions of your TV, to the surprisingly quick and easy to use internet browser. Not to mention all the hiden extras they don't tell you about like the ability to stream videos straight from a PC. In short, the gamepad has almost rendered my laptop completely useless. The only downsides I see are: 1. Current selection of games is a bit thin. 2. Some applications take a bit of time to load. Although there is an upcoming update that will apparently address this issue.
I purchased the Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack due to hearing about ZombiU and the new Zelda, and I don't regret it. The controls are great fun, and even my sister who isn't a gamer loves it. We always have multi-plays on Nintendo land.
