Unfortunately it looks like they've put a stop to this coupon. Tried to order the Wii U Black and got "Your order could not be created, the applied voucher is no longer valid and was removed. Please check the basket and click the "Send Order" button again.".

I wonder whether the code is for your first order then? I have placed an order at Sainsburys Entertainment before, so that might explain it.

Yeah, Sainsbury's Entertainment vouchers are nearly always first time user vouchers.

And as usual the muppets don't restrict consoles.

Careful - when I was putting the Expansys order through, the price change to TBA. I've cancelled it an gone for the Sainsburys one to be on the safe side.

Only thing worrying me is after placing the preorder I had get card replaced as it snapped! Rang sainsburys and asked if this would be a problem as expirt date etc would be different- bloke on the phone said it shouldnt be a problem!

I ordered mine at The Hut at 275 and just received an interesting e-mail. The e-mail is a thank you for pre-ordering the Wii U and gives a list of reasons to keep my pre-order with them. Each week they will be sending out a special coupon which lets you pre-order a game at a certain price, this week it's Sports Connection for 19.95. They will also give 20 worth of vouchers when the console ships.

I had also pre-ordered it for 255 at Expansys with a view to cancelling The Hut order, but I think I'll keep it at The Hut now. The game prices at The Hut look pretty good too.

Don't know if anyone has seen this video from this guy laughing my head off


Just a warning there is some very bad lanugage used by this guy in the video - so don't watch if your ears don't like that sort of thing:

I saw a video of him a while back raging at the Diablo 3 servers. He just seems to hate everything (besides the odd pie or 2)

Toys'R'Us is the cheapest i can find the ZombiU bundle. Will keep looking as the weeks go by.

Until i came across it i didn't even realise T'R'U still existed.

a Swedish store now has a price on the premium pack with zombi u + nintendoland at 469... it will probably drop, but they seem to think both games are supposed to be in the bundle... no idea if the pro controller is even in this "deal".

TheHut emailed another game coupon for people with Wii U pre-orders there this week: Rayman Legends for 19.95. I am quite glad I pre-ordered there with these coupons.

They're doing these for the next five weeks, so that should save me some money (of course I'm probably buying games I wouldn't have otherwise bought! ).

Francis is a parody. Out of character Boogie is actually a really sweet guy.

This site is showing GameStop as having the Premium Pack (the one with nitendoland) as being 289, so that's a tenner cheaper than the 299 mentioned for The Hut, not that The Hut seems to be doing the normal deluxe pack at the moment, just the Zombi one.

http://www.wiiu4u.co.uk/wii-u-premium-pack

What do you lot think of these price checker sites? Any good? can't seem to find better prices by looking direct, but maybe my Google-Fu is weak?? No coupons at this one but at least you get all the current prices.

Can you think of any console launch where the games haven't been at a higher price at first

It's just an old trick thats pulled at every console launch. Publishers know that on launch day there are few launch titles, and that all those excited new people with their shiny new console are going to want a game or two to play on it after hey pick it up.

Therefore they charge full whack because they can. I think it's highly unlikely Wii games will be sold for 44.99 normally, only during the launch window.
