The Wii U has once again received a price slash from Amazon UK. The news comes after UK retailer Asda cut the Wii U’s 8GB Basic set price to £149.99 from its recommended retail price of £249.99 and the 32GB Premium price to £199.99 from £299.99. Amazon UK has followed in the footsteps of the retailer and matched their prices – £149 and £199, respectively – to bolster new sales within the competitive market.
This is the second time the market has seen such price cuts, as both companies reduced the cost of the Wii U Basic back in May. Unfortunately, reports suggest there hasn’t been a significant boost in sales from the lower price marks, but with new titles such as Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 on the horizon, retailers hope it will nudge sales for Nintendo’s home console.
