5.0 out of 5 stars Time to upgrade your old Wii and buy a Wii U, November 7, 2013
This review is from: Nintendo Wii U Deluxe Set: New Super Mario Bros- U and New Super Luigi U (Video Game)
Bought this Wii U bundle at Target November 1st for $292. I had a 5% discount card from my pharmacy awards that I used on top of my 5% Red Card savings. The retail price at places like Target and Best Buy is $299.99. This is a great bundle with two great games. I waited to purchase a Wii U for a year so that more games would be out and the price be lower. Trust me, now is the time to get a Wii U. Buy it now so that you can play it with friends and family this Thanksgiving and Christmas. The new game pad with built in touch screen is awesome. One warning, it took me about 3 hours to hook everything up, download the latest software update to version 4.0, and transfer my data from my old Wii to the new Wii U. Transferring data from your Wii to the Wii U is pretty cumbersome and annoying. You will want to make sure you have at least a 512 MB SD card on hand to do the transfer. Just follow the instructions and remain patient.

Thanks for the review and letting us all know the time it will take to get it all set up and transferred from the older version. I'll definitely make sure to have a sd card on hand for it. We were thinking we were going to loose our old info. Happy that we can transfer it.

I lucked out and got the bundle at Meijer. They had a toy book out with a coupon for 15% off anything in the book. Didn't think it would apply to electronics, but it did! saved $45 off the $299 price

I agree the time to install is ridiculous. Nintendo goes along way to make sure it deletes everything off your old system. I liked the animations but since this requires internet connection why not do it all over the network. I do like the system and your Mii's and saved data/games transfer to the Wii U. If you have any credits they transfer also. Bonus is that you can play Wii games on it.
