Wow thats an awesome discount for people still looking to pick up the Wii U

This is the price Wii U needs to make standard, I'd pick one up for sure then.

It will probably get a price cut around the fall, when the PS4 and Xbox 720 release

Let's be honest, either the Deluxe set is under priced or the Basic is over priced. It's a crime to sell the Basic at only $50 less, or vice versa

PopRocks3591717d ago

That's how they get you sometimes. The Deluxe is ultimately a better deal; an entire game, more memory, a digital rewards program, a stand, a charge cradle and the nice black sheen.

It's like how Microsoft put out the Xbox 360 Core and Pro packs (or at least I think it was called pro. Maybe Premium?). The core had AV cables, no HDD, a wired controller and no headset. The Pro/Premium on the other hand had a 20GB HDD, a wired headset, a wireless controller and component cables. A far better deal for $100 more, especially when considering that the old 360s had no internal storage.

I would like to see the 32GB model get a price drop (maybe $199).

The 32GB is the best model to get I think, but its all about what you going to do with your system.

A $150 price-drop? would be too steep, at least this early.

Nah, if it gets a price drop, I expect it to be around the time the other next-gen console launches, and I expect it to be $50 at most. In my opinion, the 32GB bundle with Nintendo Land included, at $300, would be quite a good deal.

Jadedz1716d ago

Is the PS3 even that cheap (which doesn't matter because that console is 6-7 years old)?

People underplay the Wii U way too often. I mean, be reasonable and expect a realistic pricing ($250 basic, $300 deluxe).

the most effective price point for the wii u, is buy one get one free for 199.99. i wouldnt hesitate to go down to the local target tonight and pick one up. that would certainly drive up sales on a lackluster console.
