    The external storage thing is a massive bonus, I reckon this could really work in their favour, considering you can pick up a 3tb drive for around a ton.

    I'll probably cave in a few months after release, especially if some killer games come out for it.

    Black one seems to be the way to go.

    Shame we're getting ripped off on the price of it...

    Do you think these will be worth anything on ebay?

    Slightly less than the retail price?

    I think he was referring to the ticket tout vulture like mentality of buying them on launch to make a profit on.

    Won't someone think of the children?

    It's not going to sell out like the Wii did.
    The xbox 360 and PS3 are cheaper.

    But he can buy 10 by all means and see what happens.

    After taking the eBay/PayPal fees into account, Percy1983 might even make a loss.

    3TB of shovelware? I really can't get my head around how having a screen on your controller while playing on a TV is going to be anything but a novelty/distraction. Most of the Wii market is going to be alienated.

    Re: News - Wii U to hit UK shores November 30th, starting at £250

    There really isn't the same buzz about this as the original Wii. Very much on the maybe list, definitely have to read up on it a bit more, check out some reviews on launch and try one out before committing. Maybe I should just get another controller/Move and some more family friendly games for the PS3 instead - didn't impress a female friend who had some time to kill in my flat and all I could offer was one player shooting or stabbing people...

    Whats the difference in the premium pack - apart from the £50 hike and a little more memory?

    Seems a bit expensive for a console, which has hardly any pre-installed storage. Even for a 8th gen console, it's a bit overpriced.

    "Nintendo also took the opportunity to explain its reasoning for its limited 8 and 32GB of internal flash storage - that with the price of such components falling frequently, it didn't wish for flash memory to play a significant role in the console's pricing. In exchange, Nintendo will be allowing unlimited USB storage expansion, confirming that even 3TB hard-disks would be supported."

    The Wii U supports 3TB HDD,which is good to know.
