Wii U @ Kmart: Premium Pack $379, Basic Pack $299 – Probably the Best Prices You’ll See in Australia

Yes, those prices are correct and what’s more, they’re in Australian dollars!

I’ve seen a few posts about this – firstly on OzBargain and then on the ever reliable Vooks – but I just couldn’t bring myself to believe it until I saw the catalogue myself on Kmart’s website. I’ve included the page of the catalogue below as evidence for those of you out there who may be as skeptical as I (page 27, as you can see by the little red number on the bottom right). It doesn’t seem possible to access this particular catalogue from Kmart’s homepage, so it’s probably not ‘officially’ released as yet (the sale dates are listed as 29th November 2012 to 5th December 2012), but if you click on this direct link, it’ll take you to the catalogue viewer on Kmart’s website.

This is extremely aggressive pricing, representing a saving of over $50.oo off the SRP for each pack, so you’ll pretty much be able to buy an extra game, or maybe put the savings aside towards to cost of a second GamePad.

The Big Book of Christmas Cheer, pg. 27

OzBargain also mentions being able to pre-order in store at the service desk with a $40 dollar deposit, which Kmart apparently doesn’t normally do. There’s no mention of this in the catalogue itself, but it sure couldn’t hurt to rock up to your nearest store and ask.

THE RUBENS are Triple J’s Unearthed Artist of the Year | Ivy League

November 23, 2012

The Rubens have taken out the J Award for Unearthed Artist of the Year!


Unearthed is such a brilliant resource for musicians and music lovers alike and has definitely a major player in The Rubens’s meteoric rise over these past 18 months! An award that is very much close to their (and our) hearts, we couldn’t be happier for these legends.

Well done Sam, Elliot, Zaac and Scott! YOU DID IT.

THE RUBENS are Triple J’s Unearthed Artist of the Year | Ivy League.

Fergster’s Comment: Normally I’d never promote iTunes as a source for music purchases, but for this week only you can get The Rubens self-titled debut for $AU9.99.
