Nintendo’s Wii U will likely be remembered as the most misunderstood major game console ever released. As the sequel to Wii – which sold over 100 million consoles – the Wii U is a true 1080p HD console, plays all of the Wii’s games, and even includes a screen on its packed-in controller. It’s also the best current-generation console for couples and families, hands-down. But it had a slow start due to weak early software support, only getting mega-hit games in mid-2014, and many people didn’t realize that it was actually an all-new console.
Today, a bunch of great Nintendo exclusives are available, and more are on the way – it’s finally a great time to buy a Wii U. That’s what we just did, so for this week’s edition of Gaming For Couples, we’re going to walk you through the best titles, accessories, and deals we’ve found, helping you to do the same.

Early adopters get bragging points for being first to own new game consoles, but they’re only a small fraction of the consoles’ eventual user bases. That’s why game developers save their biggest titles until consoles’ second or third years – there are a lot more potential customers to buy their games. But there are always a few “killer” or “almost killer” games that show up just a little too early, only to get forgotten when the consoles hit their stride. There are also great games that get released with major, show-stopping bugs, then fixed and discounted heavily to bring gamers back. Since the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U consoles all had pretty incredible uptake due to Black Friday sales, we’re looking at some of their best forgotten or fixed games today. And they’re all being discounted, some enough to be impulse purchases.
Update (10/28 7:55am): It looks as though the $50 price drop is now live on Amazon for the Xbox One Limited Edition Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Bundle ($449) shipped and the Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Unity Bundle without Kinect ($349) shipped. This is the lowest price we’ve seen on either bundle and nearly a week ahead of the scheduled price drop.
Update (10/27 4:45pm): Microsoft is offering an additional 5% off any purchase from the Microsoft Store when you text Play to 29502 from your mobile device, simply enter the promo code that you receive via text during checkout. We have not seen any limitations or exclusions for this deal and assume that it will work once the $50 discounts for Xbox One begin.
The crazy deal season is just around the corner now, with Black Friday like discounts starting as early as the beginning of next month from what we are hearing at this point. Microsoft looks as though it will be one of the first major manufacturers to announce deep sale pricing with its latest home console dropping $50 across the board.

What is May the 4th be with you? It is the saying used by Star Wars fans to commemorate Star Wars day, May 4th. The idea for the day originated as a play on the cult Star Wars phrase, “may the force be with you,” which is said by multiple characters throughout the epic saga.
