Wii U models and bundles

There are basically two flavours of Wii U console, the 8GB Wii U console, called the Basic pack and the 32GB console, called the Premium pack. The main difference between the two models is the amount of internal storage they have, 8GB and 32GB respectively.

The 8GB console is available in white and the 32GB console in black only. There is an additional Premium pack that includes an extra gaming controller and a bundled game - the Wii Pro controller and ZombiU. Being a Premium pack, this bundle contains everything that the 32GB Wii U Premium pack does (except Nintendo Land) with the addition of the Pro pad and bundled game.

Note: All Wii U consoles include a HDMI cable, a Wii U AC adapter and a Wii U GamePad AC adapter

* The Wii U Controller Pro is similar to the Xbox 360 gamepad and is better with some games versus the standard Wii U controllers

** Nintendo network premium is a reward scheme. Members that buy and download games from the Nintendo network will get 10% Wii Remote Plus Additional Setof the price back to spend on DLC (Downloadable content)

*** The ZombiU premium pack does not contain the Wii U game Nintendo Land

Limitations of the Wii U Basic Pack and the Wii Remote Plus Additional Set

It should be noted that the Wii U Basic pack does not contain a Wii sensor bar. This pack is aimed at people that have previously owned a Wii console and it is assumed that they already own the sensor bar, remote and nunchuck. Not so good if you plan on selling your Wii console before upgrading.

Nintendo will be releasing a new legacy pack for people that do not own these items. This pack called the Wii Remote Plus Additional Set, includes a Wii Remote, Nunchuck and Wii Sensor bar. We presume this pack will retail for far lower than £50 (Take a look at our article on overpriced Wii U controllers), as this is the price difference between the Basic and Premium packs. Nobody knows how many Wii U games need the old motion sensing controllers.
