I was saying the other day that retailers would start putting Wii-U stuff on clearance! This is proof positive that the retailers have no confidence in the Wii-U as a product.


Toys R Us has a buy one get one 40% off deal on ALL games over 20 bucks. Looks like the entire video game industry is in trouble, right?

Damn. Monster Hunter and Lego City is looking even more tempting.

Sadly it looks like I can't take advantage of this deal. Only game that is a sure buy is Resident Evil: Revelations. Already got Lego paid for on Amazon. Rayman is no longer a buy. Gotta wait for a demo before committing to MH3. Never played Pikmin game. Wish Wii Fit U or Wonderful 101 was on the list.

Hahahahaha!!! They're practically giving these things away already!!!

There isn't a huge profit margin on games, and they are probably losing money on the games by making that deal or barely breaking even.

Its a legitimate sales tactic, called liquidating stock they can't get rid of for normal prices.

Deals like this happen for every system even shortly after launch. It's not uncommon.

You can't compare a Black Friday sale to a normal sale.

But still, as much as I hate the Wii U right now this sale means nothing. Toys R Us had this same deal once or twice each year during PS2/GCN/Xbox era. I buy everything off of amazon now though, so I don't know if they still do.

It'd be a great deal and all if there was more then one game on the system worth buying. I already have Zombie U, and the only other game I would want is NSMBU. I sat at BB last night for 20 minutes trying to decide what other game Id get for half off and couldnt do it.

I was on the fence for MH3U and Lego City but with this sale I'm all over it. 5 games pre-ordered between 3DS, Wii-Wii U in March. Gonna be a busy month!

Amazing, I was 100% buying Pikmin 3 & was on the fence about LEGO City Undercover, but for $25 and for something to play on my Wii U while I wait for Pikmin 3, I went ahead and ordered them both!
