Another heads up is that it seems Need for Speed Most Wanted is also out of print.

It is OOS in almost every online retailer and is going up in price in those places that have it. Also, I don't imagine EA are going out their way for further Wii U support. A few US boards reporting its OOP too.

My small collection so far ^^,

waiting for Tank! Tank! Tank! to arrive, hoping to get a full collection (not counting every edition of every game), seems like it is possible without to much effort at the moment, but could change in the future, guess we will have to wait and see

I picked up Need for Speed from Toys R Us today for £20. It would seem the prices for Sonic Lost World are starting to creep up again too. Is this nearing the end of it's print run?

I think this was released in Europe as well - but here's a photo of the Australian version (not mine - found the photo on eBay).

My Wii U collecting has had to halt sadly :( the car has cost me over £700 this past month and my partners job isn't allowing me to spend my usual disposable income on gaming. The real sad part is that I've pretty much exhausted the games out of my collection that I want to play so let's hope this financial crisis doesn't last too long as I want Mario Kart when it's out.

Well a new game turned up the other morning. As far as hand picking games goes, Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth is one of the worst games I have EVER played. I actually am totally disgusted!

I've been keeping track of what's coming out for the Wii U :)

• The Amazing Spiderman 2 (May 2nd 2014)
• Mario Kart 8 (May 30th 2014)
• How To Train Your Dragon 2 (June 13th 2014)
• Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (June 24th 2014)
• One Piece: Unlimited World Red (June 27th 2014)

Scribblenauts Unmasked was also up for Preorder on the GAME website in the last week or two so a PAL launch in the next few months must be on the cards. If I find any other future releases I'll let ya know :)

GANE currently have a pre-order available for Shin-Megami Tensei vs Fire Emblem, which seems to be a Wii U exclusive, so I'm looking forward to hearing more about that :)
