Hmm very tempting. On one hand the Wii U is being phased out and we probably won't see Xbox One type deals such as system+5 games for $300 this holiday, however if they announce the NX before years end we could see an official price drop to $250 which means retailers could start dumping them for around $200 with coupons, rewards, gc, etc. Decisions, decisions..

Just wait. The only real reason to get a wii u at this point is for Zelda, if you haven't gotten one already. And either they will release a special zelda bundle, or the price will naturally drop.

I have already decided that is what I'm doing with the NX....since I missed out on the wind waker edition of the Wii U by being an early adopter. Got my wii u at launch and have barely played it.

To be fair, Mario Maker is also a reason to own a Wii U.

Nintendo really dropped the ball on the Wii U. Go to Walmart and look at the XBOX ONE section and compare it the the Wii U. The Xbox section is four X the size. I thought the U had so much potential. The Game pad screen would have been awesome for maps while playing on the game on the TV. Whoever was in charge of game development/sales/advertising should look into Seppuku. I compare it to the 3do which actually has more retail games (not downloadable only) than the Wii U. Or maybe even the Sega Dreamcast. BTW- They just had an XBOX ONE deal for $215 on ebay. And that was with the Kinect and 3 games. Sorry to say, but I believe Nintendo will go the way of Sega soon. Who would trust Nintendo after pulling a stunt like the Wii U( great system, poor game selection)? Just because they have a new console in the making...well, so did 3do (the M2). Look what happened with that project.

At this point that's all that's left to do. I'm awaiting to hear if the NX will somehow be backwards compatible, but realistically I wouldn't be able to keep up with new releases. With my super budget gaming PC I have no interests in trying to play catch-up with Playstaion or Xbox either so it's me me, my PC, and my 3D(s).

Lots of great games on the Wii U. Mario Maker, Splatoon (last splatfest coming up), Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8, and the new lower priced Mario 3D World, Pikmin 3, and Donkey Kong. This would be a great way to get in and play some awesome games. Especially Splatoon since I'm not sure how long they'll keep the server running after the NX releases.

With the Wii U exploit that allows piracy, and the NX coming, I'm curious how many more titles we'll see

The Wii U is at a price to think about but I think I am going to pass. I still have my Wii and it still works great even though there aren't new games for it since the Wii U came. My sister bought a Wii U for her kids for Christmas and it already stopped working. Every time we put in a game it says a message like check the disc or clean the disc, I don't remember exactly but it does it with different games. They can't play on it. Less than a year and already a messed up Wii U.

really? The ONLY reason. Not for the dozens of stellar games on it already? Not also for Paper Mario Color Splash? Fail

Another reason to pass on this bundle is because it only has 8gb. Mario kart 8 + the two DLCs takes more than 6gb. I have to rely on external storage to install other games.

Mario Kart 8 and Mario Brothers is the whole selling point of this machineSmilie

Kinda of miffed it takes so many controllers to play some games.

Simpler to just get Sylanders for a XBOX or PS

can't really say the system is a great system when it can't play movies and is not much if any faster than a last-gen console (ps3)... maybe even slower
