Yikes.

Good news is that it's been more than confirmed that Wii U will in fact play used games.
Will consumers ignore the HD twins of yesteryear for something more consumer friendly?

You also get free games with your used Wii U.

I wouldn't want those two to get killed with that second hand thingy they're doing.

Assuming the rumor is true though, I'm going to wait and see what unfolds first.

Those discounts only happen on consoles because they are competing with used sales, get rid of them and prices drop much slower.
