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.

One day, I know we'll meet again, under the Iron Sky...

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.
