UK Wii U Prices Revealed

Wii U - Premium Pack (Black)

Nintendo finally revealed price and launch details for their upcoming home console, the Wii U, this Thursday. The Nintendo Direct presentation ran through what gamers can expect to find in the box when picking up the touchscreen console come November 30th.

Following the announcement UK retailers started to post their prices and bundle deals available for pre-order.

As explained during the presentation, the Wii U will come in two configurations, one ‘Basic’ bundle and another ‘Premium’ set.

The Basic bundle will include:

  • A white 8GB Wii U Console
  • Wii U GamePad
  • Wii U GamePad Stylus
  • HDMI cable
  • AC adapter
  • GamePad AC adapter

Whereas the Premium bundle gets you:

  • A black 32GB Wii U Console
  • Wii U GamePad
  • Wii U GamePad Stylus
  • Wii U GamePad Charging Stand
  • Wii U GamePad Play Stand
  • Wii U Console Stand
  • Nintendo Land
  • Sensor Bar
  • HDMI cable
  • AC adapter
  • GamePad AC adapter

It’s curious to see that the Basic pack does not include a sensor bar, a required accessory for the majority of Wii U multiplayer gaming, and something that is bound to cause confusion for some confusion.

Either way, sensor bar or not, the above is what you can expect to find in the box when you pick up your new console. So, who has the best deal? At time of writing the following is what’s on offer at major UK online retailers:
