Yeah, that's why I always roll my eyes at "analysts" who cry price cut all the time. I don't think I've ever heard anyone say they were waiting to get a Wii U when it was cheaper, but I've heard plenty of people who've said they are waiting for particular software to come. The 3DS price cut was only part of what brought that system back to the forefront, and even that case is different since there were plenty of people around who wanted the console and couldn't afford the original price.

People buy the premium version more because it's a better value over the basic. If you decide buy a basic and buy all the things that comes with the premium version it'll end up costing more than the delux set.

That's what they got for trying to pass a console with current generation technology, as a next generation console..Do they think we are stupid or something?? The Wii U should have been released with the ps3/360..Who would buy a Wii u after seeing what the ps4 can do??

Some lyrics from this song are relevant:



Without the right games, the console won't sell, but that is only part of the problem. The other part is one that Nintendo is denying: the price tag. The basic Wii U might sell better if it were at $200, but Nintendo doesn't want to go that road.

Yup, he said it. I don't have a Wii U because no one is producing a any games for it. Even the first party games released so far have been shit. The only two games I'm currently interested in are MK8 and the new SSB, and they aren't even out yet.

I'm not gonna lie, a price cut would help me in deciding on purchasing.

Nintendo is so stubborn.

Prices should be slashed to $249.99 for basic and $299.99 for deluxe. (looks ALOT more appealing than $300 and $350)

This price cut should happen in October, and be marketed through a bundle with Wind Waker HD. (drop Nintendo Land from the bundle)

October 6th, 2013.
Wii U Deluxe Edition, bundled with Wind Waker HD for $299.99.


It would sell like hotcakes.

Dio, I'd honestly discontinue the Basic Model and drop the Deluxe Version to $250.
Bundle it with either Windwaker HD or Super Mario 3D World. Both will probably sell like hotcakes.

If Mario Kart 8 was out this holiday, it would crush both games mentioned above in sales. >_>

I imagine they will for the holidays, but announcing it now would just make things worse.
