Well my birthday that just passed, and I got a bunch of money biggrin.gif the thing is Im planning on buying a Wii U but im not sure if I should get it now or wait until Black Friday and hope for a deal somewhere...

Ive checked out some sites that are saying there is a Wii U bundle at Best Buy for ~ $320 containing 3 games and 2 special edition 'Wii-motes' and Walmart has it on special for ~ $240 online (meaning I have to ship it).

So should I just get it now to satisfy my urges or wait until the day of deals?

I forgot to mention that I also want to get to NCIX early that day which is a 30 minute bus ride there and another 30 minute ride back by which time EB Games would be swamped with people shopping.

Thanks for your input!

Wait till Black Friday!! I got my Wii during Black Friday of 2011. It was only $89 new. Idk how what the MSRP was at that time but I thought it was a good deal.


Sad thing is, to this day I've never even opened it laughingsmiley.gif

You should wait to see if there are any deals you like.

If you're not in a hurry, wait for some deals. You might even find bundles with many games, which would be awesome biggrin.gif

About getting any of the other two consoles... Nintendo and XB/PS aren't exclusive of each other. PS4 and XBOne deliver a similar experience with a few exclusives of each own, but mostly third parties making up the majority of the choice.

On the other hand Nintendo is Nintendo... It provides an experience that can't be found in either the PC or any of the consoles.

Agreed. Though if it were me I'd pull the trigger now simply because I'm a very impatient person.
