I have a wii u and honestly if nintendo announced a price drop 2 to 3 months from now, you know what that means wii u ambassador games. If nintendo dropped the price soon they would be forced into compensating again because early 3ds buyers got 20 free games. Imagine if we were given 5 free gamecube games to download or something? That would be amazing. Also i doubt there will be a price drop im just speculating

I have a feeling that even if there was an early price drop, early adopters wouldn't get squat this time around. I don't know why, but I feel like that.

Also, the Wii U is selling well, I don't think the price will drop any time soon.

If they do a price drop they'd be attacked for lying once again and i don't think they want that.

Also, they are at a loss selling the console as it is (they make profit from the games) so dropping the price will only increase the losses they have. Wait about a year and it'll be 50 bucks cheaper.

I think the extra $50 dollars was built in so they could easily price drop the systems to $250 and $300 dollars respectively.

If 720/Ps4 come out at $500+, Nintendo is going to look heroic in comparison.

Now that I actually own it, I wouldn't mind a price drop, assuming we got ambassador games (or something similar).

Now, what I would mind is a remodel coming out within the first 300 days).

Thanks! Although all credit must be given to Andy Kaufman, of course. A fan by chance?
