Techtorial: Two amazing deals for Wii U are now available on Newegg's pre-Black Friday event. The bundle includes titles like Black Ops 2, Super Mario Bros. U and more.
Not a good deal. They had better deals earlier. Basically you get a $349 system + 3 games at 60 bucks each = $529. So really it isn't even a deal. It's regular price. Now I didn't get ZombiU under the deal I got from them, and had to buy it for $60 bucks, but I could have gotten it for $47.99 had I chosen that over 007 Legends initially, which will be cancelled soon. But overall seeing how you could have gotten those three games for a total of $144 including free shipping, the fact that if you buy those three with a console costs full price ($180) for those three games, isn't a good deal. I guess the only deal in it, is that you can simply buy a Wii U console. It would have to be $493 just to breakeven with earlier deals, and you'd be buying the console too.
You're right, but you're also wrong. Plenty of people have bought a Wii U and got screwed. I think the most depressing is how Target fulfilled orders made YESTERDAY and ignored people that preordered months ago. We also know that every place is going to handle preorders differently, miscalculate or something else might come up. I don't think I am the only person to preorder something at gamestop, but they sold it to someone else. Additionally, you have to give Newegg some credit here. Typical bundle: System + Accessory pack + Case or bag of some sort = cost + 40 bucks. Newegg bundle: System + 3 extremely popular games = MSRP. At least with this you're paying for this and if you want 2 or more of those games, then it might be worth the money to avoid the parents out there. Also you're not paying tax, so you're saving a few bucks.
