Excellent idea to drop the price and phase the Basic Model out completely. Gotenks, maybe this will influence you decision to get it?

Definitely influences my decision, haha. Still waiting on confirmation for the WWHD bundle.

Curious, what's the difference between the basic model and the deluxe edition?

I hope that, for those of us who already own it, they do something like the Ambassador Program again

So they dropped the basic? Good move Nintendo.

$300 is an excellent deal, but it only has 32GB flash storage. You need to buy an external hard drive to download any big games.

Holy shit the Xbox One is expensive. Microsoft didn't learn from Sony's $500-$600 PS3 launch price.

Still $50 too expensive. Also what is going on at Nintendo these days? Is it really Iwata and everyone at that board? Would Nintendo benefit from fresh blood taking over?

I feel like making a thread about this in the offiicial wii forums but that place is dead.

You'll receive a copy of Metroid Other M within the next 2-3 weeks. Enjoy!

Works for me, certainly better than Prime 2 or 3.

gameplay wise, yes, voice acting wise? the japanese version tramples over the american and european versions, and whats wrong with prime 2? it build over prime 1 and polished it, are you going to look me in the eye and tell me Quadraxis and Chykka are not awesome boss battles?

The basic Wii U was already $300 no?
Meh, I expected atleast a $100 price cut.

Haha, I called it....kinda.

This is perfect. September 20th will probably be the day I purchase a Wii U, then. With Wind Waker HD releasing exactly two weeks after that, it seems like the perfect time. (unless the Wind Waker Wii U bundle turns out to be something more than just some white Zelda-esque swirls on the black Gamepad) ....... But wait, this means that the Wind Waker Wii U bundle will also be $299.99, correct? In that case I'll just get the bundle if it releases on October 4th. (save myself $60)

Dio Wii U Wind Waker bundle releases Sept. 20, two weeks prior to the game's standalone release. The bundle is limited edition, so no telling if it will last until October!
