Heat added! £265 great price, at Xmas paid £350 for same package for Xmas day......
Wii post this here too,

Depends on the person. Nintendo Land which comes with this is a fantastic single player and three times as good multiplayer. More games will come in the near future. Here are some scores for the Wii U exclusive Lego City Undercover out on the 28th this month.

Cold. Sold 64k in Feb in the US. Will be £199 in a few weeks.



If anything, once games like the above launch, the price will stablise. Grab a bargain now or pay more tomorrow.

EDIT.
Can't believe he signed up, with that username, just to say that! That's some serious stalker potential right there.

niqbal: Your wish looks like it'll be granted this year.
Hot shame NSMBU isn't half as good as Mario World. To me Mario World is t the best game ever and NSMBU is only average. Rayman origins is far better on other consoles. Nintendoland is good fun though.

I played the demo and it's my favourite 2D mario already just because of the multiplayer aspect. It makes the game a heck of a lot more enjoyable than playing any Mario Bros. game single player.
Jump in price for me, thanks for posting.

Ordered the console and then after a bit of looking about figured out this deal;

hotukdeals.com/dea…914
@GetsugaTenshoSMar you you have played demo. Have you played full game? I take that as a no. A DEMO is not a full game. It is always going to change from that. I can't believe the amount of games I bought due to demo and the difference to the final product was astounding. Now I don't bother with demos. That would be my personal previous experience.

Very unlikely - console prices only usually go downwards. And the forthcoming PS4 / Xbox 720 will likely add to the downwards pressure as Wii-U sales seem to have tanked after the initial launch.

Only if the supplier cuts the price, officially - of which, there has not been. If they only went down Zavvi would still be selling it for £225, so that's a load of tripe for starters. 3 ... D ... S.

I thought cost price on these is £209, so can't see how they can be sold cheaper.
These price offers are only to stimulate sales in the lull period until the big titles come out.

There might not be an official price drop, but once it drops across all suppliers like this, it is unlikely to go back up, especially when sales still suck.

All suppliers are trying to offload stock as the Wii-U is dead in the water now that the pre-orders from those brave enough to order before they knew what they were getting have been fulfilled. The suppliers already know it is a Dodo: wiiudaily.com/201…es/

"Wii U is now selling way below the sales of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and it won’t get any easier later this year when the Xbox 720 and the PlayStation 4 launch. The console sold just 66,000 units last month, way below anyone’s expectations. "

Sony made a large loss on each PS3, so Nintendo could choose to do that and make the money back in games and services.

Also 'big titles' are unlikely to provide more than a marginal stimulus to sales when there are new consoles out soon imo. Price is key. If this sold for say £149 for the full version with a game it might have a chance.

And end up in the same financial situation as Sony? unlikely.

No, I just proved that isn't true. You see. 3 ... D ... S.

You're just your bog-standard, Nintendoomed, walking stereotype. *yawn yawn yawn*

GameStop “Following the holiday launch period, sales have been slower than we expected. Nintendo plans on launching some of their biggest IP over the next few months which we think will increase gamer interest.

The Wii u is not dead in the water, anybody with that opinion is a fool.
Nintendo are key to the video game market, without variety the market would stagnate.
I have no desire to buy a console which is not backwards compatible, Nintendo got it spot on with Wii compatability and vc games

Sony screwed up because of many things. The underlying model of selling console hardware at a loss and making money back elsewhere is well proven.

The Wii-U IS currently dead in the water in terms of sales volume - that is fact not opinion. The question is can it improve from here?

imo not unless the price drops further. I would likely buy one for my kids as a stop gap if it hit say £150 to replace their Wii that is gathering dust in a cupboard. And that would mean I would likely buy quite a few games until the Xbox 720 came out, meaning that Nintendo could still make money from me...

I can't see that the few decent games on the horizon are going to make much of a difference. By the time they are here the hype around the PS4 and Xbox 720 will likely counter the effect they might have to sales. imo price is key here. For something of marginal difference to the PS3 and Xbox 360 that can't play DVDs or BluRays, they are simply charging too much money.

You're too invested in selling your own ridged opinion over anything else. Why use the words 'dead in the water', and not something like 'sales are flat'. Sales are flat AT THE MOMENT does not equate to 'dead in the water' hyperbole. It's almost like you're willing Nintendo in to a desperate position just so you and a load of other skin flints can get one for next to nothing. Pray harder.
The ps3 was not dead in the water in its first year due to its potential, the same being the case for the Wii u. The Wii was £185 for most of its life, so you would be a fool to think it would drop any lower especially so early in its life.
This deal is great at this price, if I had £250 to spare I would have ordered.
We don't need another DVD or blu ray player, we need a fun games console. Something which Sony in my opinion have failed to produce since the PS2.

Sales are not flat. Sales have crashed. If you prefer a euphemism fine, but 'dead in the water' is an entirely representative description of the situation at the moment.

As stated I would certainly consider buying one if it was circa £100 cheaper for the pack with a game. Maybe I would even stretch to £199. I suspect I am far from alone in the view that this is over priced for what it offers. I have plenty of free cash, so it really for me is just a question of 'is it worth it?'

Yes, you're not alone in thinking that it is overpriced - Judging by the comments in various gaming sites and forums. But the actual number of people who think it's overpriced for what it offers is less than what the internet might have you think.

I do have my doubts that you'll actually pick one up unless you can buy it with loose change but you may end up like Striker33 who was a fairly active Wii U naysayer until he finally decide to get one - "As much as I slated it, the appeal of the controller became too strong." Either way, you have one view of existing market conditions and I have another view. I feel that yours leans towards the more sensationalist angle but at the end of the day, it's still a viewpoint and an angle which you've chosen.

As is the model of selling console hardware at a profit - although Nintendo chose to take a small hit with the 3DS and the Wii U.
Ok, due to my staff discount making this £238.50 I finally gave in. Looking forward to playing Super Mario and all of the first party titles that will eventually come out (especially Windwaker HD!).

Time to flog my Wii to subsidise the cost of this too
This will be £199 by the summer, if not cheaper. Complete flop by Nintendo's sales and marketing people, but the product is a fair buy at £199. Has been £225 on a number of occasions.
Heat added, great price, still trying to convince myself I need one though!

Don't talk tripe. Dead - as in, not alive? As in totally finished? That's it? Game over?

If you say it enough mate you might just believe it. For the record though, you're talking utter 3rap and I'd start thinking about the post you're going to have to write when sales will inevitably bounce back once nintendo has big games in place which warrent the advertising blitz that the Wii U hasn't seen yet. Duhh! Go on, get thinking.

As with just about all luxury items, only buy it if you can afford it and that you will derive utility from it Maybe you should give it a go at one of the demo stations before caving in?

I guess you missed a few too many English lessons this year. 'Dead in the Water' means not moving rather than being deceased. . As in not selling very many.

If Nintendo were going to have an 'advertising blitz' it would make more sense to do it before much more capable rival consoles launched....
