Yea I think it would definitely help sell some units. That and some good games. The new need for speed looks really good

Not this early unless they can provide Ambassador games AND reveal upcoming games. Though it's already really cheap at $300-350

it would do well to drop to 199, anything more is just Too Damn High....plus once the Big games like AC:BF and Watch Dogs release, it will do better.
True Crime New York City for the Original Xbox is PHENOMENAL.

Yes, and give us an free games like they did with the 3DS.

In all honesty; the system is only selling bad because of 1) the name..nobody knows it is a new system, and 2) no big games that help reveal that a new system has been released.

Ya know, almost everyone that buys video game systems doesn't read video game website and go on video game forums. Only us weirdos

It needs either a price drop or a pack in game that matters.

The only bundle I've seen that looks worth while to me is a Walmart zombieu set that includes the black console, the Xbox looking controller, the zombie u game and nintendoland. Might even have a black wiimote as well. All for around $380.

If you're unwilling to price drop then you need to sweeten the deal.

So if it becomes 199 will you buy a forth one and reinvest in nintendo stock?

I think it would help kill the WiiU. People would be skeptical of something so cheap, at least I would imagine. Expensive equals quality to some people.

It would help but the biggest thing Wii U needs is some big games. Monster Hunter and Lego City is a start, but Nintendo needs to start flexing their 1st party muscle as soon possible. We need release dates too not just unveilings of their 1st party games as well.
