I just read that the New Zealand price for the Wii U is $579 for the Premium pack ($479 for the Basic) - WOW! That is $150 more than the Australian price. How do all the awesome New Zealanders feel about this?
Look at the upside, you live in New Zealand, God's own country indeed. Fresh air and beautiful scenery, snow capped mountain and steams full of big trout. That makes up for it right? If not, move to Australia - thousands of you do every year!
