I must admit, after checking out the stats on this printer I was a bit skeptical. Especially after seeing that the price had dropped over $2000. Then I figured it out, obviously the printer is haunted by a Sega fanatic. Why else would the Wii remote purportedly be so effective in fending off spirits from the machine? I was encouraged by the lack of blood and gore, but that's a bit of misleading marketing... True there was no blood or gore while fending off spirits, but you wouldn't really expect that with a printer. Instead there was just toner EVERYWHERE. I mean, I've been through my share of blood with electronics. Some of the cases for computers can be amazingly sharp in the most peculiar places, and I once stepped on 56k internal modem card while traveling to the bathroom late one night. I'm a bit desensitized by now.
I was not prepared for the toner though. That made me a bit queasy, you just don't expect that kind of behavior from a major appliance. I mean, I was getting desperate there. Swinging my wiimote all willy nilly, didn't seem to have any effect on the spirits. I was reduced to trying to beat them out of the machine with the wiimote. The harder I hit it, the more toner just seemed to shoot out.
I also found that my wiimote was an ineffective cell phone or flashlight, though maybe it only works on AT&T. Additionally, even though I networked the printer, I was unable to play with my friends. The instruction booklet was woefully light on details for how to start the multiplayer mode. I was similarly perplexed on puzzle solving aspects of this printer. All around, I find that several of the features were either obscure, or outright misleading marketing.

Despite what the features suggest, I bought this, and learned that it is not one of the new Wii-U cartridges. I thought it seemed a little big, but I remember the Game Genie being bigger than my NES, so I thought I'd try it. It doesn't fit in the slot though. What I finally had to do was use a hammer to force it into the console.
Once I got it in and booted it, I realized that this is the most non-violent zombie game ever. Lame.
I went to eject it, and it will not come out of my Wii-U. It seems to be permanently jammed inside, and the seller does not offer a lubricant or solvent to aid in removing it. Do not buy if you value your new Wii-U.
