Retailers Unlikely To Discount The Wii U At Console Launch

Several large retail outlets in the United Kingdom have confirmed to MCV that they believe it to be unlikely that retailers will be offering discounted Wii U consoles at launch. The reason behind this is that retailers don’t anticipate as much stock as there was at the Nintendo 3DS launch – which saw numerous retailers offering severely discounted prices.

“There was a lot of stock of 3DS, which meant we felt we could go lower on price. But I don’t expect nearly as much Wii U stock. There will be no need for discounting.”

  1. Discount Shmiscount , give me a wiiu . I have to admit though I didn’t pick the 3ds up at launch in UK becuase it was nearly £250 , And all it had on it was fuking street fighter 4 , ridge racer and ghost recon .

    Then , price drops to £170 – ocarina 3d , starfox 3d come along = SOLD!!!!

    1. Yeah, and it doesn’t have a giant enemy crab which you attack its weak point for MASSIVE damage, Also, it doesn’t have Ridge Racer, RIIIIIIDGE RACER!!!

    1. You can buy seperate HDD for PS3 to ya know. And who the hell needs 1 TB of space for a console in the first place? Its not a PC…

  2. why would anyone buy a last gen system now? let alone for $300, same price you get next gen and at least 6 yrs of good support, but if you want to shell out $300 for outdated hardware fine by me

  3. Great items from you, man. I’ve take into accout your stuff previous to and you’re just too fantastic.
