Prices still dropping all over the internet. You can get a WiiU for $210!


Well that is what happens when people buy more than one wii u expecting the store to be sold out , then the store has more in stock making the person who bought extra that much more eager to lower their price since there plan backfired.

Getting a Wii U Basic w/ Nintendo Land is not really that bad of a deal. The stand and other extras of that nature aren't really necessities, and you would have to spend a couple hundred (iirc) on the Nintendo Network to actually make the $50 savings between the basic and deluxe worthwhile. By the time you had spent that amount of money, you would most likely need an external hard drive anyways (which can obviously already be attached to the basic unit).

That said, Nintendo should probably wait until around the holidays (at the latest) this year to drop the price around $50, and just introduce White+Black Deluxe bundles w/ Nintendo Land. I want to see them succeed.

Because as we all know, random stores lowering down the price means that the product is failing!


stores dont lower prices on items that are selling at a steady pace...

A little more complex than that when you're dealing with multiple SKUs. This whole "deluxe and basic set" thing is a horrible new trend. Why Microsoft and Nintendo ever sold gimped sets is beyond me.

That must mean the Wii U is selling then. They didn't actually lower the price and that was a short promotion
