$250 = WiiU 8 gig
$30 = Nintendo Land
$50 (or is it $60?) = Skylander Game
$?? = Extra stuff lol



They should get a call of duty bundle with Wii Remotes



These are truly desperate times when third party software is bundled with the hardware.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

This is a great idea it gives you about the same value if not more than the NSMBU and NSL bundle
parents will simply have to buy this for their kids
sadly not my thing but i already have a WiiU



bet with ash3336 he wins if Super Mario 3D World sells less than Mario Sunshine during the first three years, I win if 3D World outsells Sunshine's first 3 years. Loser get sig controlled for 3 months (punishment might change)

Do you doubt the WiiU? Do you believe that it won't match the GC?

Then come and accept this bet

This a really great bundle. Wii most likely attract the kids.

^ I think that they tried, it`s just that MS has some kind of agreement with Activision. At best we will see a bundle well into next year, like have seen for PS3 with MW3 and BO.



Lets hope they can get a call of duty bundle!



This will drive new young customers. Great choice to clear out the abundance of 8GB machine they had to recall back. (recall in this sense has nothing to do with quality, just lack of sales for basic model)



This is a great move. It's the unloved cheaper model, but kids won't care. Skylanders is very popular, if Nintendo can present themselves as "the" place to play Skylanders, that's a good thing. As said above, a COD deluxe bundle would be great. Nintendo really needs to push the 3rd party titles. Everyone knows the Nintendo software is there, they need consumers to be aware that there is a lot of 3rd party stuff too.



it is a good bundle it can be a good factor to parents to buy a WiiU over a Ps4/xboxone.
