Not bad for those who want a brand new Wii U at a cheaper price. The Deluxe version is also cheaper for £249!

LOL i'd love to see people defend this. They're practically giving them away at this point.

Still not worth it for £200. Wii launched at £179 and had a better lineup.
DLC is a method of corporate profiteering. Will you buy into it?

It's even cheaper at ShopTo where it's UK£189. Probably these prices are close to the trade prices.

The basic Wii U is a pile of ****. IF you're going to buy one then get the premium. At £250 premium is still too much.

The monster Hunter Bundle comes out in 2 weeks and that is £300. THAT should be £250 retail. That would be a reasonable deal for the wii U currently.

The most I would pay for a wii U basic is £100. I'm not joking.

That's the best site but tehy got the MH bundle for £310. This is the bundle that should cost £250.

No it didn't. It really didn't, what did wii have? Zelda which came out on GC. that's it. At least Wii U has a ton of 360 ports even if they exist elsewhere. They are both bad in terms of exclusives but wii U certainly had a better lineup than wii. The wii was overpriced as well but cheap compared to competition. Wi U is expensive compared to competition because Wii U' competition for next gen aren't out. the wii had £429 PS3 and £300 360 to compete with. For what it was. Wii wasn't cheap.

That's not realistic until another 2 years, of course we would love it to be that low. The Delux goes for £300 retail. That is a joke right now. It should go for low 200.

that monster Hunter bundle is the best bundle to get but it's £310 quid online and £330 retail. That is an effin joke. Unless Asda sell it less than that we'll see.

Also by the time Zelda Wind Waker comes out or Pikmin 3 the premium Wii U HAS to be around 250 and in terms of bundles. IF they think they can still sell £300+ bundles with 1 game they will continue to see terrible sales like now.

You can get a 500GB Slim PS3 with 5 quality games for £250, an elite 256GB 360 for £250 with 5 retail games and an extra controller.

A wii U premium costs £300 with 32GB flash memory. Jut imagine if Wii U had a HDD. this thing would go for £400+. I'm glad Nintendo are seeing awful sales.
