Also, yes, in all Media Markts in the netherlands you can get the second game for half price.


Hopefully the update goes live on Thursday. Don't want to leave the midnight launchers without an updated machine

How much of a finger print magnet is the black Wii U.

This is ridiculous, but I think finger prints and smudges is a bigger factor between basic and Deluxe than the added value of the Deluxe is. I like both colours but wish the Deluxe was a matte finish. Might still yet go for black if the condition holds up.

I kinda clean my black gamepad when I feel it needs cleaning a paper towel, cloth whatever makes it shiny again.
I don't touch my console?

seriously this issue is way overblown and extra fussy

YMMV. For me, I notice them, but they don't stand out as much as the PSP. I would've preferred a white model, though.

Cheers. I have a Deluxe pre-ordered but would prefer white. If my local store has white I might try and grab one of those and cancel my deluxe on the day.

Would I notice a huge difference passing HDMI through the receiver and displaying in 720p instead of 1080p since the games are all being natively rendered around 720p anyways? I feel like any small IQ sacrifice would be worth the gains in sound, right? As of right now I'm going HDMI straight to the TV and then Optic to the receiver and I understand I'm only getting stereo sound at this point.

TL;DR: 720p with 5.1 or 1080p with Stereo?

I have the same amp don't think it supports picture and sound over hdmi ill let you know when my wiiu comes...

If you're someone that cares about fingerprints on their console/controller, it's not overblown at all. The black Wii U console and controller looks incredibly nasty after being touched. I moved my console around a bunch trying to find a spot that would send a signal upstairs reliably, and the next day I noticed all the smudges. The controller looks like a crime scene. Personally I don't give a crap about fingerprints/smudges etc. But for people that do(they exist) get the white Wii U.

you guys do know the white has the same smooth surface and a dirty hand will still contribute to the dirty looks of it overtime? I have to clean my white remotes as well for some reason I don't like when something white changes shades to some gross grime, must clean it.

snacking and gaming :)

I haven't cleaned my Black gamepad at all and I've played on it almost daily with multiple people. Doesn't look that bad at all. Now fingerprints don't bother me really but I do notice them. Barely noticeable. My phone and iPad get way worse fingerprints on them. Granted, that's a touchscreen compared to the black finish but still. Blown way over proportion.

Might need a case or sleeve to cover the plastic parts. Hmm.

The Nyko thing is weird. Why couldn't they just replace the existing battery cover with a slightly deeper one, and fit a larger battery inside? Their solution is ugly and overblown

Sure, the glossy finish is just a dumb gripe that shouldn't be a problem. It's just that the controller looks like I play while eating a bucket of chicken and makes me wonder why they didn't make the whole controller the same matte finish that the back is.

Having a glossy console is fine, not my preference, but a glossy controller meant to be passed around to people during multiplayer is kind of dumb.

Nothing for me either. Is your shipping option standard/free?

Maybe they dispatch earlier for people without 1-day shipping. Mic and I both have 1-day, and have not yet seen dispatch notices.

Yep, I've got standard shipping, they've always hit launch day whenever I've preordered something so didn't feel the need to pay extra. Hope you guys get your despatch email soon.

I find it interesting that it takes a shiny controller to shock us into realizing how much oily stuff the human body produces and our hands touch all the time.

just think we touch each other with those same hands that the gamepad is showing us leaves those prints... in the end it is not the gamepad's fault at all
