White Wii U

http://www.gamestop.it/WiiU/Games/29806

Wii U 199 euros.
Was 299 euros at launch.

Black Wii U

http://www.gamestop.it/WiiU/Games/30850/nintendo-wii-u-premium-pack-32-gb-black

Wii U 249 euros.
Was 349 euros at launch.


Only a few months passed and already a 100 euro price drop???
Wow not even the Vita or 3DS was this bad.


This is really scary and I'm sure Nintendo regrets not having any AAA titles for Wii U until Wind Waker in the Fall.

LMAO xD lets see Nintendo fanboys defend this.
Only like 4 months after launch and already 100 buck price drops!

Sorry but the Wii U is really doing badly despite what everyone keeps saying.

Where are the Nintendo games? Pikmin 3? give me a goddamn break.
Nintendoland? stupid party game. only NSMBU was good but that can't last someone months until another good game release.

And to think fanboys are trying to say Monster Hunter or Lego City will be a system seller xD

Monster Hunter might boost sales just enough to be considered a system seller but other than that you are right on.

I went to a Gamestop in France and I noticed this the other day.
Was this a silent price drop in all EU countries?

Might be the reason why my friend in Germany just recently said he could get a Wii U for cheap at gamestop.

Man I got my Wii U a few weeks ago.. I wish I've waited, it's like a dejavu since this happened with the 3DS too -.-
Does anybody know if we will get something like the ambassador titles?

A price drop would be something across the board from every retailer.

This is a sale.

This is like saying that sofas are flopping all over the world, since they always seem to be half price.

Yeah, that's a problem games had back then. You actually had to get good at them. - Mctias

Would be awesome to get Ambassador games again!
I want Nintendo to give us some free games off the eshop! ^o^

Lego City is likely to outsell MH in Europe, where MH is very much a niche title. In fact in Europe MH is quite likely to be outsold in its first week by NFS: Most Wanted.

Most likely this is retailer-led, with retailers individually dropping prices to attempt to boost sales.
