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...
