Making a case for the Wii U Basic Set


4. Nintendo would be stupid to NOT let people subscribe to their premium service after launch.
Right now, we don't know what kind of digital content will be offered on the Wii U, and how much we will or won't be clamoring for it. I can't even begin to imagine that Nintendo would refuse money from people wanting to subscribe to the Nintendo Network's premium service AFTER the Wii U launches. I'd be willing to bet there will be some kind of system in place to allow Basic Set buyers to get the same digital deal that Deluxe Set buyers will be getting automatically.

5. I don't need my console to stand up.
Ooh, extra chunks of plastic! Moving on...

6. I prefer white electronics, and this is the only way to get a white Wii U right now.
Nintendo likes to make all their stuff glossy, and black, glossy electronics end up looking terrible. I actually sold my black Classic Controller Pro just so I could get a white one, since you can't see any fingerprints at all when you're done using it. I know this is probably really nitpicky, but I really do hate when I put a controller down and it looks like I just rolled it around in the dirt despite having had clean hands.

So there you go. There's just as long of a list of reasons to get the Basic Set as there is the Deluxe Set when the Wii U launches in just under two months. What about you guys? Do you have your preorders secured? What sets did you decide on?

About pedrovay2003one of us since 2:15 PM on 11.14.2006

Name: Peter
Home State: New York
Currently Residing In: Utah
Birthday: October 13th, 1985 (I'll always secretly consider the NES to have been a five-day late birthday present to me from Nintendo.)
Degree: Communication (with a writing emphasis)

I'm a Mass Communication/Journalism graduate from the University of Utah, which I'm starting to question, since it was a tough field to get into even before the economy went down the toilet. I love writing; Not only do I consider it my passion, but I also believe it's an invaluable skill for this socially-connected age in which we live. Writing about video games brings me more joy than I can even describe in words, which is saying a lot, considering.

As far as video games go, I've been a gamer since I was two years old. I try to play whatever interests me, despite what other people think of those games. I suppose I consider myself to be "obsessed" with gaming, but not in the sense that all I want to do is beat games. I'm fascinated with the industry as a whole, and in some way, shape or form, I'd love to be a part of it professionally someday.
