Wii U launching with multiple bundles?

Consumers may have multiple choices when Wii U launches later this year, with Nintendo poised to offer different bundles of the console when it hits store shelves.

That's according to Nintendo France executive Stephan Bole, who hinted at a possible Wii U bundle that could include a Wiimote.

This would obviously be to counter any confusion as to the Wii U's functionality, as the console will use its predecessor's controllers for local multiplayer play.

Nintendo acknowledged that, while some 200 million Wiimotes had been sold globally, not every Wii U owner will have access to one.

Further, Nintendo Land is strongly rumoured to be bundled in with the console, while a "premium" version of the console would enhance storage with an inbuilt harddrive.

With the Controlpad, Pro controller and Wiimote/Nunchuck as options, it will be interesting to see how Ninty handles the Wii U launch. Hopefully there is a premium bundle that includes them all. :P
God, I already have 3 boxes of Nintendo controllermagigys!

My guess is they will have one bundle with a wii mote, and a 'pro' version with the smexy 'Pro' controller and more hard drive space.

and since I already have 3 wiimotes, I know which one Im getting!

I guess Nintendo are serious when they say they want to cater to BOTH sides of gaming experience. I hope it pays off for them.
Oddly exciting [MOG]
