Okay, listen. Hear me out.
The Wii U is awesome. It is. You know what else is awesome? Splatoon. Imagine both were together, in a cheap package.
Big W is currently selling the Wii U with Splatoon for $279. That is an extremely good deal.
According to OzBargain, the deal is in-store only. Might be worth calling up in advance to see if they have stock before making the journey.
But if they do, it might be worth your while picking up a few extra games because -- lo and behold -- Big W is also having a sale on some Wii U games...
Yoshi's Wooly World is $39 Bayonetta 1 + 2 is $29 Mario Party 10 amiibo bundle is $29
I recommend Yoshi's Wooly World, especially if you have kids. That game is criminally underrated.
