With just about month to go until gravity defying racing comes to Wii U in the shape of Mario Kart 8, Nintendo has today announced that a Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack – Special Edition Wii U hardware bundle will accompany the launch of the game on 30th May. Mario Kart 8 Bundle Wii U

The release of the Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack – Special Edition represents an ideal offering for first-time Wii U owners, with a black Wii U Premium console with 32GB* of storage packaged alongside a black Wii U GamePad controller, Sensor Bar, and the all-important Mario Kart 8 game disc. With Mario Kart 8 set to feature 16 remixed classic courses, as well as 16 courses that are brand new to the series, both newcomers and veteran drivers alike will face fresh karting challenges with the added twist of a new antigravity feature allowing Mario and company to race upside down or up vertical surfaces.

While the likes of Bowser’s minions – all seven of the pesky bunch – will be playable for the first time in Mario Kart history from 30th May, experienced drivers such as Princess Peach and Yoshi have featured in all games in the series to date. Fans wishing to pay tribute to these two legendary racers can get their hands on new Wii Remote Plus Peach and Wii Remote Plus Yoshi controllers, both of which will release on 30th May, the same day as Mario Kart 8 launches in stores and on Nintendo eShop. Decked out in all pink with signature flashes of blue and yellow, the Wii Remote Plus Peach features a regal touch on the front of the controller in the form of a white crown. Meanwhile, the Wii Remote Plus Yoshi controller comes complete in a green and white shell, with an iconic Yoshi egg adorning its front.

Also if you are a fan looking to pick up Mario Kart 8 alongside a special collectible can also get their hands on a Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition software bundle, which comes complete with a Spiny Shell Collector’s Item alongside a physical copy of the game. The Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition software bundle is available to pre-order while stocks last including from the Official Nintendo Online Store.

If you are looking for a pre-built gaming PC then you might be interested in our review of the Value V15 PC bundle from Scan.

CDW review of the Scan V15 Value PC - 1

This system is part of our Value Series, a range of computers designed specifically for gaming and the home office. Value PCs offer the latest components and dependable build quality at an affordable price. Unlike our 3XS Custom Series PCs which are built to order, Value PCs are pre-built, which allows Scan to keep the price down as it can buy components in bulk.

The Value V15 has been designed to demonstrate that you can get decent performance and features from an affordable PC. This is down in part to the combination of the quad-core Intel Core i5 3450 processor and 2GB MSI GeForce GT 640 graphics card. The system also includes 8GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 which runs at 1,600MHz.

You’ll also find a 500GB hard disk and DVD re-writer in the V15, while the SilverStone case has front mounted USB 3 ports for easy access.

Ever wanted to stream music around your home and have different much playing in each room – well the Sonos Bundle 250 can do it – at a price.

I have known about the Sonos kit for quite a while now – it’s one of those things that you look at from a far and really want, but know it will cost you an arm and a leg. Actually it is not as expensive as you might think, and so when I was given the opportunity to borrow some kit from Sonos I jumped at the chance.

In order to help to review the Sonos Bundle 250, Sonos were kind enough to loan us a ZoneBridge and also a pair of SP100 loudspeakers.

Here is how Sonos describe the Bundle 250:

The Sonos Bundle 250 gives you everything you need to wirelessly play music in two rooms of your house. It includes two Sonos ZonePlayers (ZP90 and ZP120 models) and the Sonos Controller 200 for instant control from the palm of your hand. Simply connect the ZP90 to your home theater or stereo to bring music to the audio equipment you already have. And, place the amplified ZP120 in any room you desire and attach to your favorite pair of speakers. To start playing music, one ZonePlayer or ZoneBridge (sold separately) must be connected to the router, then all the rest work wirelessly. For the ultimate in convenience, choose the Sonos Bundle 250 with Loudspeakers and you’ll also have a pair of powerful bookshelf speakers to attach to your ZP120.


Here is what you get in each box:


The box contained the ZoneBridge, a manual, cable and power supply.




Here is how Sonos describe the ZoneBridge:

The Sonos ZoneBridge™ makes setting up your Sonos system super fast and easy. It’s the ideal solution if your house doesn’t have Ethernet wiring or your router is in a room where you don’t want music. Just connect the ZoneBridge to your broadband router to instantly activate the SonosNet wireless mesh network. Now all ZonePlayers and Controllers will work wirelessly, anywhere in your house. The ZoneBridge can also be used to extend the range of your Sonos system and expand the Controller’s wireless coverage.

Setting up and using the ZoneBridge was very easy.


The box contained the SP100 speakers, a small manual and speaker wires.
