1 million is a who shit load of units for something which seems a bit overpriced. You need to be a hard core nerd to spunk that much cash on something that just plays games

The only truly overpriced console is the Wii U.

Which is quite the irony.

It needs more storage

I think 200-250 would be the sweet spot, especially since you're going to need to buy an external HD to go with it for 50-100 dollars. Though 200 might be wishful thinking, but they did do that with the Game Cube.

Also one thing I personally wish is they would ditch the tablet or make it a kinect for the 360 like option and offer it with the pro controller for that 200 dollar price point.

Ugh.....looks like that's not happening, after writing this I decided to research it a bit and while you can now use the pro controller for a lot of the 1st party titles at least with the patched New Super Mario Bros. U it's a bit of a work around:



And a lil more research.....now this actually looks like a great deal:

Wii U Deluxe Bundle -- $319.97
Comes with: Super Mario U, New Super Luigi U, Nintendo Land, and Mario or Luigi Wii Remote Plus
Where: Best Buy

2 AAA titles, plus a controller that's 40 bucks IIRC

Well, the boy has managed to patiently hold on to his steam card birthday money from last month in anticipation of Black Friday. Any place to look to see what might be coming?

They don't do the big sales till Christmas (12/20 last year and IIRC it goes for about a week) which makes sense since a lot of people get steam cards.

He was waiting for borderlands 2. They got it for half off, $15, or the game of the year edition with 10 dlcs included for $40. Adding season pass is still $26 more. Any recommendations?

WAIT.

I got it in the summer for 10, season pass 10 more, and I plan to get the rest of the DLC's during the winter sale for a few bucks each.

It will likely go for less in a flash sale.

You don't need the season pass if you buy the GOTY edition....it was just a way to buy the first 4 DLC's ahead of their release. Those DLC's are already included in the GOTY package. I would still wait a couple of days and see if it goes lower on a daily deal or flash sale this weekend.

For any of you holding off on Skyrim, the Legendary Edition is down to $20 for the next day.

Here's what Borderlands 2 looked like during the summer sale;

$10.19 - USD Borderlands 2
$10.19 - USD Borderlands 2 Season Pass
$3.39 - USD Borderlands 2: Mechromancer Pack
$1.69 - USD Borderlands 2 Collectors Edition DLC
$1.69 - USDBorderlands 2 Creature Slaughterdome DLC

As you can see it's a pretty big savings.
