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.

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.
The Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack is a brilliant item.
The Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack is a brilliant console! That is all I can say.
I've had the machine for a while now and can say that the Wii U is yet another great little machine from Nintendo. As with all of their coinsoles though, it's setting out to do things a little differently. There is the obvious innovation in the shape of the new game pad and the Kyoto firm's insistence on sticking with existing graphics chips that hardly set the pulse racing. The biggest new feature of the Wii U for me, is the online infrastructure. As a PS3, Xbox 360, and PC gamer for the past few years, I've come to accept a certain way of gaming online. In the space of one console, Nintendo have completely changed the way I look at taking a console online. It has the usual Netflix, YouTube and lovefilm apps and a snappy little browser. But holding it all together is the MiiVerse. This new platform is absent of all the annoying, non-game related advertising rubbish that my Xbox and ps3 try to ram down my throat. Instead you have groups of miis crowding around game logos to indicate the hottest topics of the moment, complemented by what I can only describe as the natural evolution of the online forum. It's a strange hybrid of social network (albeit one specifically for games) coupled with gaming discussion, fan art produced on the tablet and videos or notes posted by the games developers. It feels so far removed from the cold, shop-window style of both Microsoft and Sony's dashboards that I honestly don't know why it hasn't been done sooner- and that's always the mark of a genius idea. Graphically the machine isn't doing anything you won't have seen before on the 360 or PS3. But there is something wonderful about seeing Nintendo's artwork in HD for the first time. Ultimately the Wii U will be left lagging behind the PS4 and new Xbox but I don't think the difference will be anything like as pronounced as the gap between the Wii and current crop of HD consoles. The games will set it apart though and the amazing game pad with its myriad functions (streaming multiplayer COD in bed on a Sunday morning is something everyone should try) will result in another slew of Nintendo greats along with plenty of third party classics as well hopefully. To summarise then, if you are looking for a big graphical leap from the ps3 or the 360 you should give the Wii U a miss. Similarly, if you are after an all-in-one media box that plays blu rays, streams from your home server and acts as a PVR, the Wii U won't be what you're looking for. If, on the other hand, you miss when games machines were primarily for playing games then you will really enjoy the Wii U. If you have to share the family tv and are tired of getting kicked off your games to let the wife watch American idol then you should also seriously consider getting one for the streaming functionality. You should also seriously consider putting a Wii U in your living room if you enjoy same-room multiplayer as Nintendo seem to really be pushing for its return with the use of the Wii U pad.
I've been enjoying playing my Wii U for a few weeks now finally I can play proper games that were only on other consoles, HD graphics are awesome the game pad takes a while to get used to but I'll get there also I'm looking forward to buying great games in the coming months, another Nintendo console that hopefully will be part of my living room for years to come.
The Wii U is a fantastic console with a difference the game pad . It makes the difference between Microsoft and Sony, and is a pleasure to use. Netflix is brilliant on there too.
This console offers great potential and innovation but lacks games and content currently. Still at the price it was I had to snap one up thinking of games like zelda, mario kart, super smash brothers, pikmin and super mario, I think it's worth the wait. Just hope some good games come soon to realise the potential of the machine.
I bought this Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack for my son who is 12 years old. He says it is good, but it takes some time to set up due to the downloads. It's not an 'out of the box and start to play' console. He says the graphics are good, and an improvement on the Wii.
I received my Wii U Console: 32GB Nintendo Land Premium Pack within 2 days, with free postage. The price was brilliant. It's highly recommended.
The Wii U is fantastic! Slightly bigger than its predecessor, but looks just as good. I got the black version, which goes very well with all the blu-ray/ surround sound/ cable box etc. The new controller takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do, its actually very good, being able to control the TV from it to change the input to the game hdmi setting, or voume, power etc. So basically, sit down with the game pad, turn on the wii U, the TV and change to the right setting without needing to get up! Brilliant! The old controllers work with the wii U too, in the same way as before. The initial set up can feel a bit slow from first turning on/ accounts/ internet set up etc, but once you've done this, its much quicker than the original wii from turning on. You can also play the old wii games, which basically restarts the console in Wii mode and looks exactly the same as before! Played mario kart without any trouble at all, except that we didn't move any save data, but you could almost certainly do that with a usb stick or something, if desired. Looking forward to some more release titles like HD Mario, mario kart, zelda etc, as currently have nintendo land, which annoyed me at first go, and since I bought mario bros wii u, haven't looked at Nintendo Land again, but it does seem a bit more like a "get to know how to use your Wii U" demo type game. But like I said, haven't spent much time on it, and it did come as part of the console, so shouldn't mark down for that! Great buy though, and great price.
OK, so there aren't many games out for the Wii U at the minute, but they are coming. This is by far the best game console I have owned. I also have a PS3 but that doesn't come close. I have so far got Super Mario and Nintendo Land and subscribed to Netflix. I can't recommend this console enough, especially at this price!
