Hot, best deal around for solus premium

Good price if you desperately need one now but I'd agree with you.

With the news the XBone and PS4 have already out sold it, and that there are nearly 1.5 million Wii U consoles currently on shelves unsold I'd probably call 'price cut' very very soon.

Definitely.
Ideal for those looking for one. We got one at Christmas and have been impressed so far. Great for the family(_;)

Never any stock in my 2 local stores :-(

Please buy this if you don't have one, I'm sick of being one of the few people with one, want a reason to use the headset.

careful now lol folk round here don't take too kindly to talk of a price cut - i reckon £150 for a premium within the next 2 weeks

I'm unsure what to do. Apparently there'll be price drops announced at the end of the month, but with a lot of places saying it's a flop I don't know if I should get one that won't have many more games made for it.

Ah I don't know, tough decisions.

I got one for the wife and I over Christmas. My wife loves the Wii fit u game, Nintendo land and Wii party u. I like zombiu, darksiders 2, Lego marvel and cod black opaque 2. Granted we already had a Wii. It's a nice little stop gap until the ps4 gets a better camera and drops in price.

There is no stock of these anywhere in argos stores all OOS
Why they don't offer a deliver to store option I'll never know - you will need to add a delivery cost to the total as it seems to be in stock for home delivery.

I must have been editing my comment..... slow down I hadn't finished

Opinion: by the time e3 comes Microsoft will have license to release Mario, zebra and donkey Kong.

Love my Wii U, and a steal at this price. Despite Nintendo's problems it won't get cheaper than this officially as this was the Wii price which has usually been around their sweet spot pricing wise.

Wonder if it's a case of there stock checker not playing ball with this deal as can't imagine they have cleared out all national store stock overnight.
Might be worth a visit to a store by anyone who is after one.

If nintendo do price cuts, it'll be a wii u console with a pro controller package. I don't think they can afford to do a price cut with the gamepad included. Take the 3ds and 2ds for example...

Excellent console. The console aint as powerful as next gen but the games make up for it

Stock available at Bishop Auckland, Seaham and Hartlepool Middleton Grange in the North East.

Good current price. While a price drop may be coming I made the call pre-Christmas to get one of the £199+game deals, having been on the fence for a while, and don’t regret jumping when I did. It’s a fun console, the off tv play option is great for placating the Mrs and 3D Mario World is one of the best pure gaming experiences out there.

Saddened by the errors from Nintendo that mean this has and will always struggle but I’m still happy to invest for the joys of Mario, Mario Kart and Zelda + some retro gaming joy from Mario World, Link to the Past and NES Remix. Although why Nintendo don’t have more of their back catalogue on the virtual console I don’t know.

They've still got the basic pack on there for £179.99 with no game, what are they doing ?

Nintendo will end up as part of Sony within 2 years

one available in east ham, E-London !

Sounds like a goty contender. Auto correct is great.

Very good price. Technically already a price cut by retailers. Even if Nintendo reduced the RRP that retailers pay for units they are unlikely to pass on the savings to the consumer. Remember the RRP for a Premium unit is £239.99, If its gets to cut say £199.99 then retailers may actually INCREASE their costs so they make a profit on sales.

another opinion is that you are an idiot and know nothing about the games industry.

What nintendo should do is really drop the price, because they can still make profits via the nintendo e shop. Trine 2 is amazing on the wii!

Highly unlikely, if anything the other way round maybe. I don't think Nintendo will be releasing a new console for the forseeable future. However we may just well see that pesky plumber on the ps4 or xbox one.

Got to vote hot, first time a major retailer has gone this low I think, other than the ones who were obviously clearing stock.
Expect there might be further reductions, but this is almost unarguably the best so far.

Would personally still recommend people to hold off unless the game they're wanting to play is out right now, but if the current catalogue would be enough for you, I'd say go for it at this point.

Oh, and to all the naysayers who said this wouldn't be going sub 200 after Christmas, your humble pie is served.

Seem to be getting a few cold voters. Crazy at this price. Must be the Nintendo haters who whether they hate the console or not don't see this as a decent to date price for the wii u.

The WiiU is a brilliant console, loads of fun has been had throwing my friends to their death in Mario.
Once Mario Kart comes out the console will see a huge sales boost, and then another boost once Smash Bros launches.


And to all of you saying we're gonna see their games on other consoles: you seem to be forgetting about this magical money-printer called the DS

Nintendo will never give up their amazing exclusives like Mario etc. They don't need to. They are the only gaming company to be making one hell of a profit. This is an interesting read.

When people say there is no games on the Wii U, this is my games collection:

The Wonderful 101
Pikmin 3
Super Mario 3D World
Wind Waker HD
Rayman Legends
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
ZombiU
Mass Effect 3 SE
Nintendo Land
Mario/Luigi
Trine 2

I think that's more than enough games to keep anyone happy for a good period of time. There are quality games coming out (MK8, SSB, X, Bayonetta, Watch Dogs to name a few).

Before I sold off my 360 games collection and console, I ended up with 50+ games and I completed only one of the games out of the entire lot. So where people say there isn't enough games, my question is, how many games is classed as 'enough'?

Will keep getting cheaper. It's a buyer's market. I'd wait until these are sub £150.
