The Wii U will be available in a basic bundle for $299.99, which includes a white Wii U console, 8GB storage, white GamePad controller, AC adapters, a sensor bar, and a HDMI cable. The deluxe bundle priced at $349.99 includes a black game console and a black version of everything in the basic bundle, as well as the Nintendo Land game. It has a storage capacity of 32GB, a console stand, GamePad charging support, and a stand with which the GamePad can be placed vertically on a table. The deluxe bundle will also enable buyers to enroll in the "Deluxe Digital Promotion," which lets users receive points for each digital download and redeem those points for future downloads from Nintendo's eShop.

"The deluxe version has sold out online with retailers like GameStop and Best Buy. Amazon hasn't listed official pre-orders yet, but third parties are selling the deluxe version on the marketplace for upwards of $700. Toys 'R Us and Target have completely sold out of both bundles. And Wal-mart is offering overpriced versions of each edition," reports TechnoBuffalo.

Nintendo also revealed that 51 games will be available for the Wii U around the launch. The games include Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Skylanders Giants, TRANSFORMERS PRIME, Assassin's Creed III, ZombiU, Rayman Legends, Just Dance 4, Madden NFL 13, FIFA Soccer 13, New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii Fit U, LEGO City: Undercover, BAYONETTA 2, and The Wonderful 101.
