Not really impressed with the launch titles....maybe I will buy one later....I was really looking forward to it but it just does not impress me. Not played on my Wii since I moved in May, may now just get that out and use that instead. My PS3 gets almost daily use one way or another. If it had the TV feature that the US will get then maybe it would be a better option.

Anyone else cancelled there pre-orders?

No console in history has had an incredible launch line up, so no i won't be cancelling my Pre order because of it

You never know i might love super mario and ZombieU should be an impressive show case of the WiiU features if not an impressive game

The wait for the two launch titles i wanted but got delayed isn't that long either, with both Ninja Gaiden and Rayman out early next year

I think the launch line up is strong enough as far as launch line ups go. I'd really love to get one, but it's just too expensive to buy just yet for me. I imagine that in a year, perhaps after Microsoft and Sony have released their new systems, that the WiiU will get a price drop into something approaching reality, the system software will be half decent, and the list of available games will be better.

But as a console, I really love the look of it and its capabilities, and I will be getting one in the future.

I'm on the fence, I'm still getting one as I have loads of HMV credit but I can understand where you're coming from in that there's not much made for the system in the launch line up. Nintendo Land and Zombi U are the only two for me that seem to make good use of the gamepad. (I'm not counting NSMBU as although I have no doubt it'll be good it looks largely a HD Update of what we've already seen) And while 3rd party support is always promising are people really prepared to shell out 300 to play the likes Mass Effect or Batman again? It needs a killer title that I just can't see atm (But I still want one as its shiny and new! )

I did cancel my pre-order with Amazon, only so I could get it from Sainsburys where I got 30 knocked off the price as well as Nectar Points.

I think the launch line up is strong enough to be honest. I have a couple of game's I'll be getting at launch:
> Nintendo Land (Pack-In)
> New Super Mario Bros U
> Trine 2: Directors Cut
> Zombi U
> Scribblenauts Unlimited [I've never played Scribblenauts before, but this looks really cool]

I'll try and get more in the new year, i.e: Wii Fit U, Need For Speed Most Wanted, Lego City Undercover and Pikmin 3

I will probably get one after Xmas as we have other things to pay for first.
I'm looking forward to the Batman game and Assasins Creed the most, not too fussed about Zombie U at the moment.
I personaly cannot wait to get a WiiU, but just need to hang tight until funds allow.

That's been delayed until next year.

No way....I cannot wait until Friday (just hope Amazon deliver it early) meanwhile am playing Wii and Virtual Console to ready myself.

Nintendoland as part of the bundle, New Super Mario Bros U and Zombi U are the games ordered for now...plus the pro controller.

Will also download some games from e-shop.

Having read some horror stories with the USA launch and having to download 8gb just to work the online capabilities, I will think I will wait until these issues are sorted out.

No, it's not an 8GB update. The system is preloaded with a 4GB firmware, but if you want to update to the current system which allows Miiverse, Internet Browser and Video Chat, it requires another 1GB, bringing it to a total of 5GB.

Don't know where you've been reading, but that 8GB download was infact reported at the time to be 5GB which has since been confirmed to be around 1GB.
Also its been confirmed it will download in the background if you select the Cancel option when asked to install update.

Not entirely sure I can now anyway. Just checked my bank and there is a huge chunk missing, and on top of that, had an email from Sainsbury's and they've said they are now processing my order! Only 5 days left to go people

So of the 8GB I get with my Wii U, 4GB is taken up already and an additional 1GB will be taken up by this update?

Please tell me that is not stored on the 8GB you get to use...

I think so, however you can expand using external harddrives via the USB ports. The SD slot is only for expanding the Wii memory.

For an extra 50 though, it seems worth it to upgrade to the 32GB model cos on top of that, you get a game that is worth 40...

I cancelled my Zombiu order I had and have kept my preimum one if that counts. Just from what I read the pro controller isnt really needed as the gamepad is pretty good.

Sainsbury's are now in the middle of processing my order, and the money's been deducted from my account. Part of me would like to think it would come on Thursday, maybe, but I don't want to get my hopes up :/

Got the ZombiU package preordered. Not interested in the other launch titles. I look forward to future Zelda, 3D Mario titles.

It isn't kept after it's installed. Updates just need enough space to download to, and then after installation the space is freed up once more. Sadly the operating system does consume about half of the 8GB basic model's storage though.

But games can be stored on external hard drives; from what I understand, as long as it's a low-power drive OR has its own power supply, it should be just fine. You get get a 1TB one for around 50-60 these days; a little more expensive than a couple of years ago, but bear in mind last year they cost nearly 200 due to Asian floods. Prices have slowly fallen again thankfully.

Alternatively, you can use a USB Y-cable (uses up 2 USB ports) to provide the hard drive with twice the power (1 Amp) which would cover basically any portable hard drive.
