Preorder Yoshi's Woolly World for only £25

With a release date of 26th June (that's 78 days by the way) anybody would find it very hard to disagree that for a Nintendo preorder £25 is a cracking price!

"Yoshi's Woolly World is designed to be the most adorable thing you've ever seen," we explained in our hands-on preview. "Taking inspiration from Kirby's Epic Yarn and more real-life wool than you can shake a knitting needle at, it's a colourful world of soft fuzzy floors, warm cuddly walls and bouncing balls of string. Everything is soft, huggable and so cute that you could probably weaponise it with devastating results.

"However, Yoshi's Woolly World is also no slouch when it comes to gameplay."

Premium Wii U console with Mario Kart 8 or Super Mario Bros + New Super Luigi U - £214.99

A Premium Wii U bundle with Mario Kart 8 or Super Mario Bros U and New Super Luigi U is now available for £214.99. Both of these Wii U bundles are a hell of a steal. You can pick your Premium Wii U bundle order up at a local store store for free or opt for home delivery. Mario Kart 8 recently walked away with our accolade for best racing game of 2014 and even as a staunch PS4, gamer, I struggle to disagree. The Premium Wii U is the only version you want too as it comes with 32GB of memory.

To be honest after 2014, I'm closer to picking up a Wii U over an Xbox One. Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros and the promise of Splatoon, Zelda and Xenoblades Chronicles X prove that there's a healthy selection of exclusives on the once-ailing console.

Thanks to smoguka.

The Nintendo NX makes for easy headlines, but it isn't the real story here

Nintendo certainly pick their moments. What started as a quiet Tuesday morning turned into a media frenzy as they nonchalantly announced that they're working on a "new hardware system" codenamed Nintendo NX. It's a cool name, and as you'd expect, the internet exploded. Nintendo and NX are still trending at the time of writing and there are already loads of armchair articles speculating about what the new console (if indeed it is a console) could bring to the table. What is it? Could it be a console/handheld hybrid? A mobile streaming box? The New Wii U?

So I was about to jump on the bandwagon myself with a barely-informed speculation piece, but the more I thought about it, the more convinced I am that Nintendo NX isn't the real story here. In fact, you could argue that it's barely newsworthy at all, and is actually overshadowing the truly big news that Nintendo announced yesterday.

The Nintendo NX makes for easy headlines, but it isn't the real story here

See, console manufacturers are always developing new hardware. They never stop. Now considering that console cycles tend to last roughly five years (the last generation was a fluke), this puts Nintendo's next machine in the frame for 2017... which completely tallies with their promise of a reveal next year. The headline, then, is "console manufacturer makes consoles." No, I don't think that we're going to stop the presses.

Instead, let's take a look at the real scoop: Nintendo's first true foray into mobile games and the mysterious new membership service.

Classic style Wii / Wii U controllers from £4.95

Fancy a cheap spare controller for your Wii? something ideal for a bit of Smash Bros or one of the retro titles on the store? Or if you have a GameCube adapter you should be able to use it on the Wii U too. Two options are available, a classic Nintendo-styled white one for £4.95. Or if you prefer the oddball GameCube design, you can get a black one for just £5.25. Both sellers are UK based, so you won't be waiting a fortnight like most third-party offers that usually come in from Hong Kong.

Please Understand: Nintendo TVii is never coming to Europe

"We're not allowed nice things here in Europe." I've said it before again and again, and as is so often the case usual suspects Nintendo are behind it with their rallying cry of "please understand."

Remember Nintendo TVii? This ambitious streaming community-driven Wii U application was supposed to pull numerous TV content providers into a single convenient hub, complete with social functions and at-a-glance channel hopping.

What we need to understand now, however, is that it's officially never coming to Europe now. To be honest, most of us already figured that out months ago, but at least we've finally got some confirmation.

CONFIRMED: Wii U Basic bundles going for as low as £84 in-store at Tesco

We've had a massive deal alert come in today, as it's been reported that Wii U Basic bundles are going for as low as £84 in-store at Tesco. HUKD user burge74 spotted the absurdly cheap Wii U deal at Tesco Extra Barnstaple.

If you're lucky enough to live near a Tesco outlet that deals in games and consoles, it might well be worth swinging by and having a look to see if you can bag yourself a super cheap Wii U bargain. The console went super fast when the online price for the Basic 8GB bundle dropped to £99 last week, and we'd expect any ridiculously cheap units to disappear from shelves very quickly indeed.

Yesterday's sub-£100 scramble lasted only a few seconds, but this cheap Wii U console deal is here to stay.

OOS! Wii U Basic finally goes under £100, and with it goes your last excuse to not get one

Super cheap! Wii U Basic finally goes under £100 at Tesco. Click here to buy >>

Tesco are doing the Wii U 8GB Basic package for just £99 right now! That means you should probably get one. If you love games, you'll get one. £99 is the perfect price for The Second Console In Your Home... and that's exactly what the Wii U wants to be. It doesn't have third-party games (but that's not a problem), or a decent YouTube capture policy, but what it does have is a smorgasbord of Nintendo excellence, two of the finest multiplayer titles of new-gen, and it has Bayonetta 2.

And it'll have new Zelda, new Star Fox, new Xenoblade, and a host of other things too this year.

Once upon a time, I too felt that the Wii U did not deserve my time or money. I was so very wrong. Now I find myself sitting on a throne made from the Amiibo I drunkenly pre-ordered and forgot about, playing some of the best games currently available.

Cheers Haggis0609.

The Wii U third-party 'problem' isn't as big as you think

The Wii U third-party 'problem' isn't as big as you think

The Wii U may boast a fantastic slate of first and second-party exclusives with more on the way, but it doesn't take long for some bright spark to point out the fly in the ointment. The turd in the yorkshire pudding. The lack of third-party support.

It's no secret that publishers large and small are wary of the Wii U to the point of ignoring it outright. The reasons are simple; since the Wii U is less powerful than its competition and its install base far smaller, putting extra work into a rebuilding and optimising multiplatform titles seems like a lot of effort for a potentially lean return. The GamePad is also a unique stumbling block, even if I've previously argued that developer laziness is more of a factor than gimmickry. Following a trickle of launch titles (including the likes of ZombiU, a great game that tanked hard) and the occasional delayed blip on the radar, the well seems to be all but dry.

That's the cause of the problem, but there's a more interesting question to be asked. Just how big a deal is this issue, and is it actually even much of a problem at all?
