Let me get this out of the way, I'm a person who will most likely be downloading the majority of my WiiU games. I love digital distribution.

I'm a Target employee who can get 10% off my system prices listed above. The charging cradle/stand is also on clearance for $10 at my store.

Taking those into consideration, should I bite on the basic model? Or is the Deluxe worth it for the digital deluxe program, the console stand (which I have yet to find anywhere else), or other reasons? How do games on an external HDD perform?

Thanks!

Basic is supposed to be U$299,99, isn't it? If you did find it for 240 dollars, BUY IT NOW!

I don`t see why not I did today, as for downloading content just pick up an external hard drive, you`ll need one eventually anyway.

How is the performance of games from an external HDD?

Does everything the Deluxe has amount to $110 + tax? The main thing you'd be missing out on is the digital promotion, even if the Basic wasn't on sale, but if you can get everything else, including a much larger ext HDD for less than the difference, I'd say go with the Basic.

As far as running games from usb, the disc drive reads at 22.5MB/s while running from USB 2.0 averages at 25MB/s. Maybe a little better through USB overall.
