I just bought a second Wii U Console. It is the special Zelda 32gb edition. It looks great. I bought it from Gamestop for $120 USD and it looks like it is really GOOD shape. I kept the new Gamepad, and synced my old gamepad to the new console for my son. I sync the new gamepad to MY Wii U, and I noticed there are dead pixels and a left-analog stick drift. THIS CONSOLE is CERTIFIED REFURBISHED by Gamestop and the gamepad has TWO obvious problems. What a joke. I just literally paid $117.00 USD to Nintendo and I am sending in my new used refurbished gamepad in to Nintendo to have them officially repair it.
Moral of the story is, do not buy refurbished shit from gamestop. I did buy a two year warranty on it but I guarantee they WONT fix it, they will just replace it with another shitty Gamepad. I like the Zelda theme on it and it does look good. So I will pay the money have it fixed and move on.
