Wow, 3 SKUs.

The $349 probably comes with a game...or a hard drive.

$249 is MINE!


this. unless that 249 version is severaly gimped and pointless....like the arcade xbox 360 is nearly pointless as you need a HDD to really get the full use of the 360. but if its the same console with the same features as the other 2 bundles but console and gamepad only....yea 249 = instant preorder.

I would definitely go for a potential $349.99 bundle if it includes:

- Black Wii U Console and GamePad
- Nintendo Land and or another game
- Wii U Pro Controller
- WiiMote Plus/Nunchuck
- HDMI Cable


only if its a special nintendo labeled HDMI cord lol. i need a complete set i have a sony one and a microsoft one that ive gotten(came packed with the systems).

I'm guessing $249 for the bare bones package
And $300-$349 for the bundles


Are you the same Amabo from Facebook?

Maybe I interpreted the info wrong, but wasn't NintendoLand supposed to be a pre-installed demo-thing that was part of the WiiU's system menu by default?

I'm guessing the cheap one will be just a WiiU (w/ NintendoLand pre-installed)
The middle one will probably come with a pro controller.
The expensive one will probably come with a pro controller and maybe a second Upad?

Keep in mind that these could be wholesale prices, not retail prices. The MSRP could be $50 more than these listed, so the prices the stores charge could be $300, $350, and $400.

Since this is a website of a distributor, 11/11/12 could be the ship date to the stores. If this is the case, then the release date to the public would most likely be 11/18/12.

No, Nintendo never said that. They never even said it was a pack-in. As far as we know, it's still a separate retail game until we get confirmation otherwise. You're remembering people who said that who were just speculating on what Nintendo might do.

I doubt it. It specifically says "street date". That doesn't sound like a distributor "pre distribute" date.

(assuming this is even real/valid info)

This could be possible, with the exception of the HDMI cable. They didn't even include a charger for the 3DS XL in most countries because they assumed people already had one -.- What makes you think they will include an HDMI cable when almost any gamer has at least 2 if not more?

It would be cool though. I'm also skeptical about the Pro Controller, but I wouldn't rule it out completely.

A high quality HDMI cable costs about $5 on average to buy on any number of websites. They have no reason to include one. I could actually see them leaving out the standard composite cables for similar reasons.
