Asda comments on their recent decision to no longer stock Wii U consoles in stores. The Wii U will still be available online, but is currently sold out due to a price promotion offered by the retailer.
Ive honestly never heard of such a major retailer doing this. Looking at the gamecube, 3ds, dreamcast, cant recall this at any point in their troubled lifespans. Even if the wii u is selling bad now, dropping right before the big wave of system sellers seems shortsighted.
Whoever disagreed please post an example of a retailer deciding not to stock a top console in it's second year of life cycle in the last twenty years.
http://kotaku.com/5944662/s... I didn't disagree, but I do recall Amazon not stocking up on Nintendo products a while ago. Maybe It's just late.
@Anarki How odd that is, i always thought of nintendo as being very retailer-friendly. In fact TOO retailer friendly, with their online store prices equal to that of retailers as well as their insistence on region locking. Im sure nintendo can turn this around, but as of late the wii u seems to be in a worse place than the other next gen systems by a concerning margin.
But, but, but...Nintendo's stock rose 4%. That must mean theyre doing really, really well...right? /s LOL
Do all of your comments have to condescending in some manner?
I call it how I see it, Pop. Nothing personal. LOL
I mean....considering they can lose $300 million a year, every year...and still be around in 30-40 years.....yeah, they're not doing too bad. Especially since that simply won't happen.
They would buy back all of their stock by then and become a privately traded company so their stock price wouldn't be relevant. Sony has lost over $4 billion since 2006....is their stock price tanking? Is the company worthless? No.
"The machine is temporarily unavailable on Asda Direct because of a £100 price cut, which has caused the console to sell out, he says." "Wii U is doomed"....yeah right! Get a life losers.wii u will dominate this holiday season mark my words!
LMAO. Not with the launch of PS4 and XBox One, this holiday season. It's gonna be a competition between who sells more units....and it wont be Nintendo. Delusions of grandeur.
"Not with the launch of PS4 and XBox One, this holiday season." @shadowrunner 100 million consoles later....Wii says hello! ;)
