Looking at those lists, the 'premium' has more memory and a plastic stand & cradle, but has only 1 gamepad controller, while costing alot more. That memory is probably storage as opposed to ram, and that stuff is cheap, as are molded plastic stands. Seems to be a bad deal if it only has one gamepad controller.
Guess we have to wait bit for clarification and finalization of US pricing.

Gamestop is listing Basic at $300 and Deluxe at $350. They also only list 1 gamepad controller in both packages.
The Basic does not have Nintendoland. (Still haven't researched to find out what that is.)

32 GB of memory? What is that mean?
I guess this console is for those with no technical knowledge at all. 32 GB of memory and 1, 5 G something something of speed.
I would like to see some specifications of this console like procesor, RAM, graphic card. What is this?

How much is an extra controller going to cost?

The Wii U this year, the Xbox 720 next year, and the PS3....sometime. Get ready for the next round of console wars. Meanwhile, I'm going to sit back with my PC!
