The Wii U has been reduced in price yet again by UK retailer Asda who have slashed the price by another £50. The basic package for an 8GB white Wii U is now listed at £149, while the premium 32GB black console with Nintendo Land is listed as £199.
In March, Asda set the goal posts for the other UK retailers by slashing prices from £249 to £199 for the basic console and £299 to £249 for the premium. The cut price comes after Nintendo announced their loss in profits for the fiscal year from April 2011 to March 2012, selling only 3.45 million units worldwide. With Asda cutting the price again, it’s a no-brainer that other retailers will soon follow suit. And with a slew of games expected this year including Pikmin 3, the Wii U should be shifting healthy numbers.
