This site just goes against everything that is confirmed in other words we know the wiiu is powerful as devs that have games in development have said so and we can see games like fifa13 with twice the texture resolution in graphics with better lighting ect stuff not possible on ps3/360 same with black ops2 and these games are running in 720p native 60fps with an additional 480p image on gamepad running at the same time makes the wiiu powerful end of,and with Gamestop saying the attach rate is about 2.5 thats twice/three times the ps3/360/wii with 1.2 million game sales already the wiiu is doing fine and with the launch games costing around a million or less to develop the wiiu having games discounted already means nothing as there are no blockbuster hits besides say ZombiU/SuperMarioU and say Fifa13/BO2 to be fair so games seing price cuts is a good thing.

This article is a joke the wiiu is selling well compared to all consoles before it and that's that retailers are doing deals on games because thats where the money is end of and they have 30 games to go at for day 1 if it was a weak launch like 8 games or so then there would be zero deals on games for a longer period of time END OF.

It's called launching a console right before Black Friday (or what's now known as Black Friday week).

Retailers are doing that to get people in the door, not to sell units they don't think will sell.

They're giving up their profit, or even taking a loss so you'll buy your kid the G.I. Joe with the kung fu grip while there.

What's Black Friday?

Did the author not realize that Black Friday is almost here? I mean with all the advertisements online and off its hard not to notice. Several retailers will also be offering discounts on Sony and Microsoft games both new and old. Some people will say anything for hits. I hate yellow journalism. It could of at least been funny.

He may not be from the US. I maybe wrong but it seems the website is not American which explains how he doesn't know. Obviously there isnt adverts for black friday here in the UK

Whoa Whoa Whoa. Are you telling me that retailers actually discount software to entice consumers to come buy said software and possibly also the console from their stores?

This is madness I tell you!

Well madness and black Friday do go hand in hand.:)
