UPDATED: With Australian information.
We know that there will be two models of the Wii U when it launches this December. But how do they differ?
First, what they share.
RAM & Disc Storage: The Wii U's system is running off a massive 2GB of RAM; 1GB dedicated to games and 1GB dedicated to the system. Meanwhile, Wii U discs will have a capacity of 25GB and run at 22.5mb/s.
Wii U Premium
Australian Launch Price: $429.95
Japanese Launch Price: 31,500 yen (AUD $405).
In the box: Wii U console, tablet Gamepad, AC adapter, HDMI cable, Gamepad stand, Gamepad dock, and the Nintendo Network Premium subscription, which gives you 10 percent off digital purchases until December, 2014. The Australian edition also includes Nintendo Land and a (Wii Remote) Sensor Bar.
Storage: 32GB Flash Memory
Wii U Basic
Australian Launch Price: $349.95
Japanese Launch Price: 26,250 yen (approx. AUD $338)
In the box: Wii U console, tablet Gamepad, AC adapter and HDMI cable.

Nintendo Land isn't included in the box as speculated, but neither was Wii Sports in Japan when the Wii launched.
We'll update any differences to the Australian editions tonight, and have a full analysis about which is best for you tomorrow.
