why 40percent off on second game for nintendo systems only?

It's a sale, that's all. These things happen all the time.

Another thing that happens all the time is whenever there's a sale on Nintendo games, someone ALWAYS comes to one (or all) of the Nintendo based boards and creates a thread implying that there's a sale going on because game sales are low. It never fails.

Maybe for the Wii U, the 3DS however is making a killing.

They do these sales all the time, for everyone. This week it is Nintendo's turn. Guessing it is Toys R Us or Kmart or Target. Kmart and Target are both really struggling and Toys R Us has trouble getting people to buy games from them instead of Walmart, Amazon or Gamestop. These sales are quite common if you follow CAG.

They do this all of the time in a number of stores, usually for ALL systems. Toys R Us does it weekly actually. Nice troll attempt.

Right now it's a sale. When a system or games are under clearance, it's quite obvious. Virtual Boy had clearance. Eventually, I've heard of some systems selling for $20. Sega 32X was cut deep, Earthbound (that rare game that sells for hundreds of dollars) went down as low as $5, Saturn was getting discounted and being bundled with 2-3 games. If Wii U were being cleared out, there would be many more reports of this from all over the place. Besides 3DS is known to be doing fine and it's a part of the sale. Gamecube went as low as $99 (wasn't a clearance, but Nintendo was trying to get them to sell to increase market share, though they did idle manufacture to sell through their existing stock).

It may be because sales overall are way down across the board. Even Xbox 360 was way off from last April-May. That story is lost in all the targetting of Nintendo that's so popular around these parts. Sales have been down overall year-over-year for a while now.
