User's Comment on Product: "My lord this is a great deal! This is probably the best accessory/special purpose bag I have ever bought. The build quality is great, the padding/feel of the inside makes me feel like it will actually protect everything. Most items fit nice and snug. The controllers don't have a "place" but they all fit. It even has a little pocket for your sensor bar in an appropriate spot to protect it well. I have stuffed everything for the console (including the gamepad charger stand), 4 wiimotes w/ nunchucks, a pro controller and all the cables, 7 (maybe 8) games and it all fit. Granted it fit snuggly... but it fit. The think is rock solid. I spend $20 at best buy, but at $10, it is worth every penny and then some." - silentace

Mine just came last night. I think the quality & compartmentalization is really great for $10! I have not tried packing my Wii U into it but I really like the looks. It's not terribly conspicuous, but also not too bland. It's just the right look, imo. It's smaller than I thought it would be, but the Wii U is a fairly small system so that makes sense.

It also came with two of those magnetic 2alarm spider locks inside it.... Not really sure if they were just taking those off and stuck em in there then forgot to take them out before the shipped it, or what? I just threw them away.

The Nintendo Wii U is a great system, but more equal to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Nintendo has always had great consoles that seems to last 5 times longer than the rest, but always a step behind on processor power. The Nintendo Wii U is far from a failure. It is a great system with great potential. The marketing that Nintendo has done in the past for this system may be a failure, but hopefully they can find someone that knows what they're doing and get this system going.

Not always behind in processing power. The gamecube was more powerful than the ps2. PS2 had more good looking games because of the dev support, but the gamecube had better polygon and graphics because it used a dedicated graphics chip. N64 had more polygon count too, but that one lost to the PSX in dev support mainly because of the cost of medium ($0.24...cent discs vs. $22 blank cartridges) and difficulty in developing games. It was also released later making it start behind in that price war.

They had their market research right that the lowest graphic console usually dominates because of economics. but the previous gen had HDTVs to push console sales because of all the HD craze. had Nintendo created the Wii to support HD signals with more processing/graphics, they would have had a lot of dev support with that huge userbase.

I think 3rd party support will be a huge issue for Nintendo this console cycle because they didn't foresee their competitors choice to switch to x86 architecture. Developers can now quite easily port games between PS4, XBOX One, and PC due to their similarities in hardware. This isn't the case for Wii U, and the added difficulty of including support for the game pad is a huge turn off from a business perspective.

That being said, I am a huge Nintendo fan and I think the hardware is really amazing. The same goes for most of the games designed specifically for the system. There is real fun to be had if you're open minded and you don't fall into the trap of becoming a brand elitist. Investors and media outlets are quick to call the Wii U a failure, but I fully believe if Nintendo changes their marketing strategy and heavily incentivizes developers for designing software on their system it could be a moderate success.

Ultimately I'd like to see Nintendo merge their handheld and home consoles into one division as they've always done quite well in the portable sector, and technology has gotten to the point to allow for hardware to be relatively powerful and portable at the same time. Also, transmitting data from a device to the TV has become painless. Add a few acquisitions of long term loyal third parties such as Sega and you have the makings of a Nintendo success story.

Back on topic-

I received my bag within one day of ordering it! Not bad for $10 and some change with free shipping. Overall the quality seems great with solid stitching, a thick exterior, padded interior compartments, and a nice thick strap. One of the inner zippers has a plastic pull instead of metal and the buckles are plastic as well, but for the price this thing is a real winner! I especially like how compact it is as it could almost pass for a large lunch bag.

Hey guys.

I got mine yesterday but is wasn't till today that I decided to open the package. It came with an iPhone 5 case with a battery of some sort. I was checking the replies on this thread just to read comments about other users having the same "incident". Anybody?

Please name the Nintendo consoles that were behind on processing power. Here's a hint: the answer is Wii and that's it.

Also, the Wii U is far more powerful than PS360. But, just like any system, if you don't program to the hardware, it won't look that way. Wii U has an extremely powerful GPGPU and a pretty weak CPU. The PS360 had powerful CPUs. Devs who try to port code from PS360 to Wii U fairly unaltered will end up with a failed program. Alter the code to run on the GPU and it works amazingly.

If you could declare console failures after 1 year, the Wii would've been the only successful console last gen. PS3 first year sales were on par with Wii U and 360s were RRODing up a storm.

Some people just don't think. But hey -- if it results in slick deals, all the better!

When was 3rd party support NOT a "huge issue" for Nintendo? SNES, really. It's not like it's really hurt them besides in the perceptions of investors who don't understand the games market (and yet feel like the company should listen to them).

The real loser in the above situation is PC. PCs are so much more powerful than PS4/XBONE (and the gap will only grow in the coming years) and yet devs will almost certainly develop for console and port to PC.

In case you didn't hear, Nintendo reorganized their company last year and merged the console and handheld divisions into one. Which of course has led to rumored speculation about the next Nintendo console and handheld being interchangable and called Nintendo Fusion. (Iwata's recent remarks about identical environments for all platforms from here on out only fueled this.)

Of course, the stupid people who believe Wii U is a complete failure also believe this is a sign that Nintendo is kicking it to the curb and will bring a new console to market. Apparently not realizing that Nintendo always starts developing the next console immediately after the current one releases (if not sooner).

Judging from the way the item is STILL in stock. I think Rocketfish over estimated the amount of Wii U sales and manufactured way way too many bags. If there is enough stock of the item left, they may yet to drop the price to $5!!

What a slickdeal indeed.. The bag is no longer available ANYWHERE.. Which comes as a huge disappointment for me. It's listed on Best Buy for $19, but not available for shipping. It's a shame because no best buy in America has these in stock anymore..
