Ok, let me predict what will be in this topic.


"Wow, the trolls are outrageous on this board today"

"Nintendoomed!"

"Shut it apologists ;)"

Wii U board logic: Posting anything that isn't praise = trolling. Defending that action = running to their rescue.

I was in London last week and I couldn't find one multimedia store where I could buy games and other stuff. even the multimedia store (VMS?) was closed in Heathrow. I was keen on wasting my last pounds on DVDs and games, but I haven't found one shop.

OK, I wasn't really searching for one, but one week walking through the city, I would have thought that I would pass at least one

Anyone that is in the UK and has access to the store should look at this as an opportunity to pick up a WiiU for pretty cheap. For any consumer with interest in the console, this is quite an opportunity. You know that the WiiU game drought is going to end sooner or later so grabbing it now while it's cheap may be a very wise move.

That sucks big time. These retailers are probably taking a loss on the Wii U. Guess they want to free up shelf space for products that actually sell.

they have the PC version of Darksiders 2 running on WiiU in 1080 native at 60 fps and full graphics options on. Neither 360 or PS3 can come close

Is there a reason that Europe seems to be so anti-Nintendo for their new console? I know it isn't doing exceptionally well here in America, but it seems like they can't even get rid of them overseas.

This is only the 8999th time this topic has been spammed. You trolls are slacking.

So basically the same thing as in America then. Guess sales will pick up when they hit the clearance section at Target.
