I got mine from a bricks and mortar GAME for £30. Had to ask for it though. It's a nice controller and the battery hasn't needed to be charged in weeks. 80 hours battery life on a charge, about ten times better battery life than my DS4!

I had an afternoon with the six and seven year old mini-Elites today and one thing that struck me with the wii u is that it's brought back proper local multi-player. Local multi-player on the 360 means split screen - that's under my tv next to the wii u - and I genuinely detest split-screen mulit-player. With the game pad and the tv, it's'perfect. Nintendoland is really great fun with three players. It has split screen on the tv for that but it's different as it isn't visually confusing - there's a clear boundary between player 2 and 3.

I used to love local multi-player on the spectrum/commodore but that was both players on one screen and not the split screen of recent times.

It's nice having children friendly games that are also actually good games for adults! I'm playing though wind waker HD with my four old. I'm reading the text like a book, he loves being read to and loves cartoons and I never completed WW in the GameCube so it's good fun all round :-)

Just had my personal injury claim through so I have pulled the plug and ordered the Mario Kart Wii U bundle from ShopTo for the family, this way it doesn't get added to my personal gaming expenditure

Now to decide on the free game to get after registering Mario Kart

I just ordered the MK8 pack from Amazon, along with Mario 3D World, and I'm planning on downloading Wind Waker. Should have it on Friday according to them. I'm stupidly excited. Now I need to try and remember my Nintendo network password. Am I right in thinking the games I downloaded when I first owned a Wii U are gone. They're tied to the console rather than my account, is that right?

For any one that doesn't have it yet Wonderful 101 is on sale on the Argos ebay store at the moment - £22.49

It's also £14.99 in store at HMV. I've seen it at Bluewater & Maidstone branches. Still can't quite bring myself to buy it though, mainly cos I know I won't have the time it needs to really get to grips with it.

We're guessing £49.99 as that's how much they're selling the disc copy on the Nintendo Store.

Sigh...

And I assume eshop vouchers are still sold in limited locations with no discounting (no cdkeys etc)?

Also there has been news of permanent price drops in US for nsmbu and windwaker etc ($39.99) have these filtered to euro store yet?

50 kitties in Scram Kitty!

Redoing earlier levels to get more kitties. This is going to be tough.

At the moment I'm only starting a new level once I've rescued all four cats on the preceding one. Getting really tough now though, so not sure how much longer I'll keep that up.

The download code for Mario Kart 8 is £39.99 at Game so if you want it digitally it's cheaper there and not much dearer than cheapest physical copy!

So apart from being white and needing a USB drive for storage is there any downside to a pre owned basic u?

Not really. You will need a sensor bar from somewhere, and maybe a charging dock if you're all about aesthetics.
