"Great Console"4.5 stars
Pros: New controller gives the Wii U a unique experience
Ability to use touch based controls
Has some fun games and popular titles available
Nintendo TVii and Miiverse are actually quite useful
Cons: Nintendo TVii would definitely be more useful if you could control your DVR.
Summary: Deluxe Version is definitely worth the extra $50. It comes with 4 times the storage, a $60 game, and a 10% back for downloaded games.
