Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U Basic falls to $240 at Target

Tagged games:

Before the negativity begins, I want to say that's a great deal and I would be buying a second Wii U for my bed room at that price if Nintendo actually implemented universal accounts.

Same here. This is simply a sale, and sales occur, I do believe Nintendo will lower the price on both Models soon & combine that with better bundling.

Your topic is also misleading in that you say it falls to $240 (which it is) but it is just a sale, the better deal is their basic with NSMBU for $285 ($70 off).

 

We could also say, the 3DS falls to $144 being %15 off at Target as well, there are infact alot of video game electronics onsale at Target right at this moment.

Makes sense. The basic model has always been overpriced compared to the deluxe version, as is suggested in its even lower sales.


Add the software drought and it's near impossible to sell that system for $300.

If too many more of these retailers cut the prices, Nintendo will have to make an official price cut, before they start to look stupid for having the price so high, but no one is actually going by it.

I have a bad feeling they may change the price.


LOL, I'll never understand why people are so intent on the price remaining high. Heaven forbid it's more affordable to more people.

Nintendo looks bad with the state of the Wii U already so that ship sailed like 3 months ago.

People and I am sure, nintendo, are afraid that we are reliving the 3DS, which only needed more games to have sales stay high continuously. The price cut was a bad choice that made many angry. Ambassador games was not enough.

 

Plus they would not be making any money off of a reduced price system, and the boost in sales would be short lived. More Games!


The Wii U is in far worse shape than the 3DS ever was. The lowest the 3DS ever sank to was 97k I think in North America (for example), which is almost 3x what the Wii U sold last month. Prior to that short period where the 3DS price drop was announced but not effective of course.

A couple of more Mario games isn't fixing this mess alone.

If Nintendo bleeds too much money on hardware sales, that's less for them to spend on amazing games! ;)



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

The price is only going to drop even more. When XBO and PS4 come out, if Wiiu isn't less than $150 nintendo are finished.
