A retailer in New Zealand has decided to sell all Wii U systems for 50% off, marking them on clearance. Is this just one retailer giving up on the system, or a sign that a new bundle is coming to stores?
Wow 1/2 off, that's crazy bet people will be buying it now in New Zealand
they are. But that retailer is getting rid of all Wii U stock. That's the main reason it's so cheap.
Man I wish it were in my country, with Pikmin 3 just a month and a half away I would've picked one up right away. Guess I'll just have to wait for an official price drop in my country :( I'm really looking forward to a lot of Wii U games so I'd really like an excuse to get one sooner rather than later. They have a nice bit of exclusives this year and going into 2014.
Yeah just picked up a premium today for $199 only three left in my dicksmith store. Damn should of bought all three :)
And resell the other two for a little profit :P
Pretty good deal IMO ;)
I can't take anything seriously from a store called DickSmiths. Good deal though, if your in NZ you should snag one up and prepare for The Wonderful 101.
its proper name is Dick Smith Electronics. The retailer is actually Australian based. It was named after the founder called "Dick Smith" lol.
Makes perfect sense, it's still funny in the most immature way possible :]
Agreed. Great deal though.
Dicksmith tried to sell me a two year warranty for an extra $80 and i said no thanks, i am covered under the cga.
As a person that lives in nz .i dont think anyone buyed a wii u .i did but sold it 2 week later .my friend at eb games says they hardly sell one a week .
Sounds like the Xbox 360 in Japan.
say whaaaaaat??? Thats crazy.. 50% off clearance is a pretty desperate move to get rid of the thing
This came after the news that Xbox1 is dropping DRM...hmmmm? I think at this point, the Wii U is in serious Dreamcast territory, the only difference is the Deamcast actually have games.
Your right and wrong. The reason Nintendo WILL be around for awhile is DS/3DS....Nintendo makes more money on the handhelds in a year than Microsoft could hope to make in 3 years. As far as games/consoles.
Lol going to pick up my second one tomorrow :)
Same happened in South Africa a few weeks ago. You could buy a Wii U for a $100. Premium edition...
