Depends on the bundle you get, and what games you choose. If you pick the ZombiU bundle you get a Pro Controller included (Europe only); you'll want Wii Remotes for Nintendo Land and Mario, and a lot of other games can make use of them; screen protectors if you're so inclined (I don't bother but I got one for free); and if you're planning on downloading a lot of games then buy an external harddrive (you can get a 1TB drive pretty cheap these days).

In terms of games, it depends on your preferences. I'd wholeheartedly recommend Nintendo Land if you play with friends often - it's so much fun with a group, despite being so simple at heart. ZombiU is a good single player game, and Sonic Racing was surprisingly good. If you've not already played them on other consoles, the ports such as Arkham City and Darksiders 2 might interest you. And of course, NSMBU is as fun as I expected it would be.

Thanks for the info I completely forgot about the wii motes.. I haven't owned a Nintendo console since... N64 and miss the Ninty stuff. Love my 3DS and figured it was a good time to jump back on.

Just don't make an "I regret buying it" thread next week.

Look at known games for the system & determine if it's worth 400 bucks.

Depends, is this your first HD console or do you have a PS3 and/or a 360 as well?

Just sounds odd to see people ask if it's their first HD console, lol
