Nintendo has detailed the North American launch of the Wii U today. The system will be available on November 18 in two versions, the $299.99 Basic Set and the $349.99 Deluxe Set. A full list of the 50-plus launch-window titles was also provided.
The white-themed Basic Set will include 8 GB of internal storage, a GamePad controller, a sensor bar, HDMI cables, and AC adapters for both the system and pad. (Note: buy more power strips.) The black-themed Deluxe Set includes everything previously mentioned, as well as a console stand, GamePad charging cradle and stand, increased storage of 32 GB, and a pack-in game, Nintendo Land. Deluxe owners will also be enrolled in the Deluxe Digital Promotion, a service that is set to run through 2014 that will dole out points for digital downloads that can be redeemed for eShop items.
The TVii was also revealed, which will allow Wii U owners to view content from several sources, including Netflix and Tivo DVR, on their GamePad.
