Toys R Us introduce a limited time mega-price-slashing special to Nintendo’s 32GB Wii U console
Is that right, a $102 for a premium Wii U. I'm jealous
WTF is R1,000? edit: nevermind a little google research answered my question.
This article failed to point out that the offer (if true) is only available in South Africa.
well where else in the world do you use Rand as the currency? Only in South Africa my friend.
I would image this is an international site, so most people aren't aware of different currencies outside of their own country. At first I thought it was Toys R Us reward points, or something, but I clicked before I wasted any time looking it up.
It is true. Saw it with my own eyes.
All gone already , give gamers a bargain and they can't resist. Yes , it is true , lots of people picked up a console at that price this morning.
for $100 no reason not to get a Wii U, even if you weren't really a fan. That's a ridiculous price. Nintendo should do a one day massive sale here in NA. Their userbase would jump considerably if they offered consoles for that price for one day.
im not interested in the wii u at all however for 100 bones, sold! a massive sale like that, maybe 2 days only or something isnt a half bad idea. increase user base significantly, perhaps gain more sales through word of mouth, perhaps even gain more 3rd party support as it wont be so risky for devs with the increased install base
totally agree, Nintendo would take a little bit of a hit in terms of money lost on each console, but they would move significant numbers. Not to mention they would move tons of Nintendo software, so that would more than make up for it. Are you listening Nintendo?
nope people would just buy them all and resell for profit on ebay. this would never work in america. to many scalpers and flippers.
Yeah but a lot of people would get them, trade them in at game stop for a much better price and put that money towards an actual game console :)
I live in South Africa and it's true. Wii-U were selling for R999 (Rand, that's our currency). At the current exchange rate that's $99.71. Obviously everything has been sold out, people were queuing since very early in the morning. I unfortunately missed out but there are quite a few happy new Wii-U owners here in SA.
Great deal I would definetly pick one up at that price, the controller alone is probably worth aboot a hunner quid.
ROFL. This just in: South Africa becomes leading platform base for Wii U. I got mine for $230 and i'm happy with that price. But damn $100 is a steal. Still glad I got the white one over the black tho.
Why would you buy a basic, No game, cradle, etc....Oh well to each his owm
I got it for $240 but more importantly i wanted white because it doesnt show fingerprints on the gamepad and i just think it looks better.
