    Exclamation ASDA slashes 50 off Wii U

    No official price cut yet...



    Asda has chopped 50 off both editions of the Wii U console. Black 32GB Wii U with Nintendo Land now costs 249. White 8GB Wii U with no games costs 199.

    UK Supermarket giant ASDA has cut the price of the Wii U, with the Premium Pack with Nintendo Land now on sale for just 249, and the 8GB Basic set for just 199. The offer is available from the ASDA Direct website.

    ShopTo is also going below the 200 mark for the Basic set.

    Now, however, there's no official price cut from Nintendo yet. The Wii U Premium Pack has a guideline RRP of 300, the Basic Pack an RRP of 250.

    As you may know, the Wii U has struggled to gain traction in the UK market since its launch last year. Retailers hope the reductions can help stimulate sales of the hardware...

    so now they are selling it at a small profit instead of the huge profits they had hoped to make if it had sold from the start like the wii did.

    the trade price hasnt changed.


    Anyone who wants to add me feel free to do so

    199 isnt bad but still too much for a last gen revamp with a tiny hdd, think nintendo should scrap the iFAD and include a normal controller, make the iFAD optional and this will reduce its cost and will be what its worth.

    Even if this isnt the official price cut i think its too late! If Nintendo would have brought the Wii U at that price from the start then their sales would of been up Simple as that. Now all people are bothered about is the next gen consoles that are just around the corner.
