Simple Short Answer! 2 Days of Sales for price cut followed by some games in later weeks. Can it do good or does Nintendo Need More Improvements?

hopefully it'll pull a 3DS. it's got a lot of big games coming up in October, like Sonic and others.

I think about the high 40's. It's a good move by Nintendo but I see it as more as a preparation move to increase Christmas sales than something that will generate a lot of sales the week of the pricecut itself.

Any word on whether this deal is coming to the UK yet?

tbh i dont think we should judge the first week cuz of 2 day sales but wateves! Hopefully it sells 50k+ especially since LoZ WWHD is out digitally!



I have a friend that was looking forward to this bundle but she saw a better value with the PS3 GTA V bundle as it was also cheaper.

As good of a Wii U bundle this it, it just seems like Nintendo still needs to do more for others.

I can't imagine much more than a modest gain, perhaps around 100%-150%. I'll say 25k.

Without new software, moderate price-cuts aren't that effective. The Wii U is just going to have to tough it out until it gets some strong titles next year.

In America I thin it will be 22k,
in europe closer to 15k, but I think Windwaker is out a week later here.

The benefit of the price cut will come into effect with more casual titles like Mario

I don't think windwaker will pull in sales, if it didn't for gamecube why would it for Wii u?

Mh.... it's currently selling 20+k
I think 40-50k is pretty reasonable.
