I know it's last minute and that 8GB is clearly inferior, but I don't get all the complaining. Unlike the PS4 and X1, WiiU games typically don't require enormous patches or installs to play games. 8GB should be plenty serviceable for a lot of people.
Clearly there's 8GB white model stock to clear. They have every reason to put this at a much more affordable price point -- which means Ninty will have some idea the kind of demand they could get with a lower priced 32GB model.
I think these will likely have a solid sell-through by end of December as some Christmas gift giving will likely be pushed into the weekend since the holiday is on a Thursday...
Overall good move. Nintendo has to do everything they can to capture as much momentum as they can now so they can have an even better 2015.
uh, that's simply not true lol, things get patched a lot on it, the answer is invest in an external storage option for it cause even 32GB is too small, I run a 2TB HDD on a docking station lol.
That's the main problem I have with the Wii U, and why I haven't gotten one yet.
It's supposedly the cheapest of the three consoles. But being forced to invest in an external harddrive so easily makes it almost the same price as its competitors. On top of the competitors offering bundles with pretty much every top title they release, and as soon as they release them, it's hard to see Wii U being tempting in terms of value. I want it because of its games, but I'm not going to pay more for something than I think it's worth. (To me.)
I'll wait and see if we'll get a proper Smash bundle in the coming months, or a price drop
there is some true there, but in the wii u case is not mandatory to install every game like in ps4 and xbox one, plus the online gameplay is for free, you dont have to pay 50 dollars per year to play online
for me its convenient if it will cost less than wii u 32gb+smash, as for the memory i already have an external HDD usb 2.0 i could put into use
