Wii U GamePad Controller: The Wii U console's new controller, the Wii U GamePad, will connect wirelessly and seamlessly with both the console and the television. With a built-in touch screen, motion controls, and a full complement of buttons and control sticks built right in, the Wii U Game Pad transforms gaming, introducing new and better ways to play.

With the Wii U GamePad the action can now flow seamlessly between the GamePad and the television, and it will open a new window into gaming worlds that can extend beyond the TV and completely surround you. Its intuitive and easy-to-use interfaces mean Wii U can be home to games for everyone in the family, from the latest games for the most avid gamer to fun and innovative new games for those looking for more casual pick-up and play experiences. Wii U extends beyond games with built-in wireless connectivity to get you online quickly and easily. Players with broadband Internet access will find new ways to connect with other players over the Internet in Miiverse, communicate in real time via the video chat feature with other friends and families, and access new downloadable games and additional game content from the Nintendo eShop. And the Wii U GamePad controller puts it all right at your fingertips.

Both the 8 GB Basic Set and 32 GB Deluxe Set Wii U systems have enough internal storage space to store save data for large numbers of games purchased through retail and to support a limited amount of download activity through the Nintendo eShop for Wii U.

If you wish to download more content, we recommend an external USB storage device with a dedicated power source so that you can expand your storage capabilities for Wii U software. For more information, choose a topic from the left.

The wii u is fantastic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy the Skylanders Swap Force Bundle Instead The Wii U gaming system is a great product, but you probably already knew that. If you are looking for an affordable Wii U, this is one option, BUT I highly recommend the Skylanders bundle below. This refurbished (i.e. used) system is currently $229.99 at the time of the review. The bundle below is currently $230.97 and is brand new! This gives you the original warranty and you know it will work great out of the box. Great deal and you get a skylanders game, portal and 3 figures, 1 of which is a variant exclusive to this set. You can give the skylanders stuff away if you have no interest in it and the figure exclusive to this set will fetch you about $5 from GameStop as a trade in at the moment. The biggest caveat to the white system is that it only has 8 GB of memory. The deluxe costs about $70 more will give you 32 GB and a "better" game or games. You can get a bundle with Nintendo Land + Super Mario Bros Wii U, Mario Kart 8, or Super Mario Maker as of this posting and they are all good options. The software update will take 5 GB of that, leaving little for games and save data. With any Wii U be prepared to buy an external hard drive (very affordable in this day and age). The Skylanders bundle is best for those who don't want to, or can't spend more than the $230 range. If it is available it is a fantastic deal compared to this.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from There is a reason why 8gb was phased out Worked for a very short time- then nothing but problems! Game stop was awesome and gave us help with return to get us a 32gb WII U ! Do NOT buy an 8 GB ever. Sure its cheaper but it is not worth it- lost all the files made on games and now have to start ALL OVER! Somebody needs to get on Nintendough and explain why memory cards were awesome! BTW company charges 185 fee for any diagnosis / repair - pricey when you don't know if it needs a major repair or not, huh Nintendough? BEST ADVICE EVER- Stay AWAY FROM 8 GB WII U- I found forums online( when researching this costly repair) with tons of complaints!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rough Shape I had high hopes for getting a refurbished system, but it just didn't work out. I picked one of these up in-store over the weekend and ended up returning it the next day. Being a refurb, I knew the system wouldn't look brand new, but the one I received was in really rough shape. The controller faceplate had scratches and scuffs all over it, like a child had taken a key to it. The actual Wii U system had some kind of sticky dirt stuck to the front of it where the SD card door is. I thought - OK, I can probably deal with the cosmetic issues - since I was getting the system for $70 less than the deluxe bundles are available for in store. Once I powered the system on, it just seemed overly loud while loading and when reading a disk. My brother has a Wii U and his didn't sound at all like this one.The final nail in the coffin was the dead pixel in the middle of the controller screen. You could tell the screen was brand new because it had no scratches on it compared to the rest of the controller, so it's a shame that they let it pass with the dead pixel. Overall, the system wasn't worth the $230 I paid for it. I returned it and bought a deluxe bundle elsewhere.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Underrated This is a great system. It is completely underrated, therefore it can't compete with Sony and Microsoft. Though, EA has stopped putting games on the wii u platform, so games like nhl, madden, and battlefield games are never going to be on it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Completely Underrated! There is so much any one who actally bought one of these can say. one thing would be that this console is extremely and completely overrated! Going out the other night, I finally purchased the Nintendo Wii U. I had foreknowledge of most of the conole's capabilities, but then I brought it home. /// Around every corner I turned, there was something exciting to see just on the soonsole itself. There is so much this $250 console can do that you almost forget it's par last genertaion (but still superior to the Wii) graphical capabilities. /// It's like a giant DS, but more powerful and built for the home. The double-screen feature is taken advantage of to the max! You don't even need the TV to play your Wii U and virtual coonosle games. In other words, if your sibling owns a PlayStation 4 and yoou insist on playing your Wii U, you can. Just use the screen on the GamePad! This also applies to streaming services such as Hulu, Netflix, YouTube etc. /// Wii U has its own social network via Miiverse. Find yoour favoirte game pages where other players will be discusing or posting anything concerning the game whether it's a written post, detailed drawing, or a funny comic you drew on the gamepad, people will post it. Miiverse has a follow and friend system so you can keep track of your favorite users. /// You can also sync the GamePad to control your TV and cable box via the "TV" button. /// Along with WiiWare and Virtual Console Nintendo has added the ability for players to download any full game for the corresponding price of course. /// Other excellent features accompanying the listed above is the ability to format and use a USB drive or full external hard drive as another means of installing games and applications. The Wii U is backwards compatible with Wii remotes and Wii games. It has retained the internet browser it had on the Wii. The Wii U has returned to a "tradtional" and more practical controller also being the first to have true dual joysticks. It also has brought back the X and Y buttons as well as the Left (L) and Right (R) buttons. New buttons include the Z Left (ZL) and Z Right (ZR) buttons which function as trigger buttons. Wii U is also Nintendo's first console to have a rechargeable controller. /// All in all it is a fantastic game console. It'samazing how underrated this console really is when comapred to the PS3, PS4, and perhaps even the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Go out and get yourself one of these bad boys Highest recommendations.
