Still mad Nintendo never bothered to give the console a discount before giving it the boot

They were making a profit (probably a good one towards year 3 and 4) so they never cut price. But of course I agree with you from a consumer standpoint. I reminisce on those GameCube $99.99 commercials....haha. I still can't believe I only paid $99 for my GameCube which I STILL love.

The Wii U caused a lot of damage to their brand and their stock value. They might have been trying to recoup as much of their losses as possible. A discount would have been nice though.

The wii caused a lot of damaged. It sold a lot because of the gimmick but ones you own it, it just wasn't what the hype was about

That's just a Japanese company's way of dealing with "failures", they don't sell them for less they just pull everything back.
