Where to pre-order the Wii U!

If you have made your choice please feel free to purchase the Wii U console by clicking the Amazon Listing links below!


  1. The sensor bar is also in the basic package.

    1. The sensor bar is NOT included in the basic package. The basic package was primarily designed for people who already have the old Nintendo Wii and the sensor bar from that can be used on the Wii U.

      It is the premium (black) package that contains a sensor bar.

    2. I bought the basic package myself and i can confirm that there is NO sensor bar with the basic package.
