i literally just stated the obvious but i really want the wii u to sell better.
Shoot, a $50 one would probably cause quite a big increase. I think the Wii U is kinda stuck in the "last straw" area with a lot of people, where people are kinda teetering on the edge but not quite convinced. If the price falls by a significant ammount right now, it could push a good number of people over the edge. The Wii U has a lot of positivity with its exclusives. So yeah, a significant price cut - $50 to $100 - would draw in some serious sales. Probably a lot of people would be interested in it as a suplementary device to their PC/Xbone/PS4.
