European customers will have to wait a bit longer, until November 30, to be exact. The two varieties will be set apart by their internal memory, 8GB for the base and 32GB for the costlier model. The premium model will also come with a subscription to Nintendo's Premium Network, which provides rewards for digital purchases.

Nintendo is also re-branding Wii remotes as WiiU remotes and these should hit store shelves soon. Each bundle comes with a WiiPad, a charging stand, a play stand, a stand for the console, and the console itself. GameStop has started to accept pre-orders for the new console by Nintendo. You can place yours on their website.
