Argos and Amazon cut price of Premium Wii U down to £179.99
This morning, high street retailer Argos reduced the price of the Wii U Premium Pack with a copy of Nintendo Land down to £179.99. Online retailer Amazon have also recently followed suit, reducing the same bundle down to the same price. While some retailers had reduced the price of the Wii U below £200 on the run up to Christmas, what’s interesting about Argos’ price cut is that this is not listed as a sale price. It will be interesting to see... 

Three Nintendo Franchises That Deserve To Be Resurrected For Wii U

Three Nintendo Franchises That Deserve To Be Resurrected For Wii U
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently announced that a new 3D Mario game and a new Mario Kart for the Wii U would be shown at this year’s E3 conference, along with the promise of a new Legend of Zelda game at some point. While I’m sure these will all be great, they are not exactly a surprise. Mario and Zelda have always been well-supported by Nintendo, with at least one release on every major console since the NES. But what of Nintendo’s... 

Nintendo Land Review

Nintendo Land Review
When the Wii U launched in North America the more expensive of its two bundles came with Nintendo Land. Japan will have a similar situation when the Wii U launches there early next month. While it’s not the only bundled game Nintendo is offering in the UK (you can also get a bundle with ZombiU), it’s clear that Nintendo expects a lot of consumers to be picking up this game when they buy their system. As such, many comparisons have been... 

Introducing the Wii U to the Casual Crowd

Introducing the Wii U to the Casual Crowd
I’m obsessed with Nintendo! I make no excuses for it! They’ve been behind some of the most influential games I’ve played, the ones that made me seek a career involving video games in the first place. I’m the kind of obsessed fan that spent four hours watching a Wii U live stream last week, then pressed play and watched it all over again just to see if I missed anything. I’ve got a stupidly large collection of Nintendo... 

Just 3GB of free space on a Basic Wii U?

Just 3GB of free space on a Basic Wii U?
The latest Nintendo Direct video has Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata spending a good portion explaining the capacity limitations of their upcoming Wii U… using glass jars and coloured beads! I kid you not! It’s probably to help make it easier to understand for those that have a little trouble knowing the difference between their megabytes and gigabytes. The Nintendo Wii arrived with 512MB of internal memory. In the long run it clearly was... 

MCM Buzz Play the Wii U

MCM Buzz Play the Wii U
Many of the writers at MCMBuzz, myself included, are the sort of gamers always looking forward to the next big thing and when it comes to big things in the video game industry you don’t get much bigger than the launch of a new system. Since the Wii U was announced, with its uniquely large controller with a built in touch screen, I’ve been eager to get my hands on the system and see how it performs in person. Having spent several hours...

The Basic Edition will come with just the console and GamePad (£250); the Deluxe Edition will come with an extra 32GB of memory and a copy of Nintendo Land (£300); and there...
