Nintendo Wants You to Buy the Deluxe Wii U — Here’s Why

"When all parts of the Wii U Deluxe are taken into account, it is quite easy to understand that Nintendo is benefiting much more than the consumer during the exchange. There is not $50 worth of material within the deluxe Wii U, unless Nintendo Land is valued at $50, and therefore that means that most consumers are falling prey to Nintendo’s attempts to make a bit more money off of the Wii U. At this point, of course, Nintendo needs to be making all the money it can off of the Wii U, so the deluxe bundle can be seen as a mutual favor. Unfortunately for consumers though, they are not getting the better deal of this bargain" -- Nintendo Enthusiast. (Nintendo, Wii U)

Wait...a company wants you to buy one of their products? I call BS.

Also, they have the nerve to try to make as much as money as they can off of it? Those bastards.... They can't be trusted!

Wouldn't the real answer be that they want you to buy the Wii U deluxe bundle because the basic bundle DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE....They did recall them so, it's not like you have a choice anymore

You are 100% incorrect on the Wii-U basic model not being available. Nintendo has stopped manufacturing the basic version but there are hundreds of thousands of consoles still in the retail pipeline to sell to the consumer due to the extremely poor sales of the Wii-U. Check Bestbuy.com & you'll see that you can buy the basic version.

I got the white 8GB WiiU+1TB harddrive. Didnt want NintendoLand anyway. I'll pick that up in the eShop once it gets a price cut.

Very happy so far. I'm in a student home with no TV - still get to play my games. Awesome.

My best answer is because they made it and want to sell it.

MEH! there's nothing in the Wii U lineup to make me look up and take notice, especially consider it 'must have' Btw i'll be too busy playing GTA V honestly

This article is so cynical. They act like MS and Sony don't have their own ways of making shady money off of consumers.

They want people to buy the Deluxe because the basic model is no longer available.... shocker...

Meh, fix the epic fail that is the Wii u by actually giving it games from franchises like f zero and metroid, discount it down to $200 and Ill buy a Wii u.

But as of now, its PS4 day one.
