The price of the Wii U is being slashed by UK retailers, according to MCVUK. HMV is selling the Wii U Premium bundle that includes NintendoLand and ZombiU for £199.99. This is £140 off the recommended retail price. GameStop is selling the same bundle at £244.97.
"We have taken the decision to reduce the price of the Basic Wii U to test the market and assess the impact of a price change for a short period of time," said ShopTo purchasing director James Rowson. "This has resulted in a smaller than desired increase in sales at this stage."
In the US, Best Buy has the Basic Bundle on sale for $249.99 today and Saturday. This is a $50 reduction in price.
