Wow jawa. So tempted! Can I just plug in a normal external hard drive for more storage? I already have one.

You can indeed. If it's a portable one, i.e. it doesn't have its own power supply, you'll need a Y-type USB cable. I've got one plugged into the two rear USB ports of my Wii U and it's been working fine for months.

You can't not buy it at that price.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Is the Wii U backwards compatible with Wii games? I think it is, just want to confirm. If so, I'm going to impulse buy tonight for sure.

And you can put homebrew on it so it also runs gamecube games :datass:

Does anyone know where to download the Smash Bros PAL exploit to setup homebrew? It's the only Wii game I have, but the site I find online seems to be non-active. PM would be awesome if someone could help me out.

I just managed to nab the Linx 8 full windows 8.1 tablet (that EG reviewed today http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digit ... experience) for only £69. In fact, it'll work out to be only £31 once my £30 trade-in (and potential £8 Quidco) is factored in! :shock: :shock:

It's a bit specific, but it's been working so far for me without a hitch:

VERY important note! You need to be a NEW customer with Very.co.uk and open up a CREDIT account (so 18+ only as it performs a credit check on your credit file). If successful, then you can pay, interest free, over 3 months - so £23 per month.

Step:

1). Go to Quidco and search for Very.co.uk (currently 10% for new Very.co.uk customers).
2). Search for the Linx 8 on Very, add it to your basket and opt to set up a credit account with them (so current address details if living at address for 3+years, or current + previous address if not).
3). As long as credit search is successful (I found out instantly I was accepted), then you can add the following £30 off code on the right-side of the screen: 4KMY4.
4). This credits £30 to your new Very account leaving you with £69 to pay.
5). Select Collect + for FREE delivery (saving any postage costs).
6). If you have an old, working, 7" tablet you don't need (like I do), then you can go here: https://tablettradeup.com/uk/en/tradeins/linx/invoice and enter in all details, post them your old shitty tablet and get £30 credited to your bank for it!
7). If Quidco pays out then you've nabbed a seriously decent quad-core, full windows tablet for just over £30! :datass: :datass:

Clearly, this won't help everyone, but it DOES allow you to either play STEAM games directly, stream 1080p movies to your TV (via the mini HDMI-out) or play any PC game on it over WiFi with STEAM home streaming.

Oh, and it also comes with a Windows Office 365 12 month key (worth around £50 on its own).

Can you sell that key separately to recoup a bit more cash Andrew?

There are a few crappy Android tablets in this house that really serve no purpose, getting £30 back would be nice.

I believe there is a way, but you'd need to do your homework on that one I'm afraid (I plan on using my key).

That 10% just been reduced to 7% as of today :lol:

Didn't go for it. Very.co.uk seems a bit dodgy with their finance plans.

Quidco is never guaranteed anyways, so 3% difference isn't exactly much. I'll likely just pay it off in one go soon and then close my account with them in about 6 months.

Try CDKeys, a few on here use them and get about 5% off for liking them on Facebook too.
