I might have been wrong this time.

 

http://www.nintendo.com/games

 

If you do a lot of clicking, you can click "digital download" and click on the game you're interested in to find, in very small print, the price.  I searched for Trine 2: DC, and it showed up as $7.99, so it seems accurate.  Now if only it would let me buy stuff and put it on an account, a la PSN.

 

Edit: It doesn't work very well.

Wow!  I didn't know ZombiU stayed so high on the 'shop.  Europe has been getting some pretty deep discounts, so I thought we might see it for $15 or something.

 

Guess if I want ZombiU, I'd better get it for $25 on Amazon (or risk waiting for lower).  I like digital copies, but not for $41.  Glad they exposed their overpricing now so I didn't buy a Wii U expecting it to be $20 on there.

If it were $14.99, I would again curse not being able to buy Wii U eShop games without a Wii U and would have to refrain from buying a Zelda Wii U just to take advantage of the deal.

 

(If there are no good black Friday deals on a Wii U Deluxe, preferably with Zelda, I will be sad and curse my patience.)

That sale on ZombiU is pretty laughable. Especially if the game plays at all like the demo. Couldn't delete it fast enough.

Unrelated to that, I have been thinking that I'd like to add some CAGs to my WiiU friends list. My username is mpaullin. Feel free to add or post your own here.

Isn't ZombiU published by Ubisoft?  Usually they're so aggressive on price drops and sales.  Europe was having giant sales on Assassin's Creed III and such (but I could be wrong--I didn't bother doing the currency conversion, and it wouldn't make sense anyway since the British get completely ludicrously ripped off on Nintendo-platformed games in particular).

 

I've gotten addicted to having digital games thanks to Steam, PSN, and a handful of 3DS eshop sales (and it's especially nice on the portable systems), but man, if this is the kind of WiiU sales we can expect, I guess I'll be going physical a lot when I get a WiiU.

 

The recent price drop to $29.99 for Nintendo Land is kind of laughable, too.  $19.99 would be more like it.

It's been $20-30 at retail a couple times in the last two months.

Won't Nintendo let them do $20-30 on the eshop?  They let Atlus do some great sales, at least on the 3DS.

Remember that WiiU Fit is available now on the eShop and free for the next month.  If you buy a Fit Meter ($20) and register it before that time's up you get to keep the full software.  If you already have the balance board or grab a cheap used one it's by far the way to go.

I do have a WiiBo, but I don't have a Wii U yet.  So if I don't get a Wii U in the next month, I won't be able to take advantage of the whole just buy the Fit Meter deal?  :(

Yep, will have to actually pay for the software too come December.

Crud.  Two possible solutions: manage to get a Wii U before December (good thing the deals are all in November!); find out I don't want Wii Fit U anyway.  It looks neat though!!

I'll give them a ton of credit for realizing that people already bought this $100 board and giving them a chance to get the new version at a steep discount.

I don't believe it's Nintendo blocking them since publishers have done bigger sales in the past on the 3DS eShop, but publishers have made weird pricing decisions on Wii U or Nintendo in general. Ubisoft had a terrible sale on their 3DS games on the eShop a month or two ago and Square Enix is charging $20 more for Deus Ex: HR DC than on every other platform because the game is completely new on Wii U.

Good point!  I had forgotten about Ubi's horrible, horrible 3DS sale.  I guess publishers think that since Nintendo can get away with charging retail price and rarely lowering it, they can set crappy prices too.  But even Nintendo games can often be had $10 or more below retail on Amazon.  It's frustrating.  I don't know much about the sales on the Xbox Marketplace, but the eShop has a long way to go to catch up with the PSN.

I think it's more that they don't sell nearly as many copies on the eShop as the other platforms, so they have less enthusiasm to offer greater deals.

If a store around you has them GameStop sells them for $20 used.  Otherwise you can snag them for ~$25 shipped on eBay (the shipping is like $16 though).

ZombiU is readily available used for $19.99 ($17.99 with Gamers Club Unlocked) at Best Buy.  If you are willing to wait, Gamestop will have ZombiU used during Black Friday for $9.99 used ($8.99 with PWR membership).

 

I already snagged a Wii Balance Board about a month ago after watching the Wii Fit Nintendo Direct with my wife.  It's amazing that I thought would be a $80-100 bundle now has become a $40 package instead.  More funds for games that matter!!

Awesome. Thanks. I never think about GameStop for some reason. lol. Link isn't working properly for me, but I searched and found out my local GS has some in stock supposedly. I saw some on eBay for $25, but didn't think about or look at shipping. And Craigslist was a bust. This seems to be the best route to go for me.

I kept searching GS for wii fit and not balance board so I was only seeing the $50 bundle so I got one off eBay for $26 shipped. Then they ran a B2G1 on back to back weekends and I realized I wasted like $10 once I realized I was searching for the wrong thing.

Hopefully as the eShop gains more traction, we'll see better deals and (gosh forbid) more price drops.  Even first-party Nintendo games should really drop $5-10 after a year...

I don't think Nintendo's gotten nearly that progressive. :rofl:

It just seems weird that when the effectiveness of these deep discount sales on digital media is well proven out at this point that there's still so much reluctance around them.

Sweet.  Will be monitoring this thread after I won a Cowboom auction last night for a Wii U 32GB ($135 plus $15 shipping).  Does anyone know how much Monster Hunter is going for on the eShop currently?  I missed out on the Wii U version (got the 3DS) as I had no console then.

 

I'm hoping the previous owner didn't maul the tablet too much and bought tons of eShop content :D.

Can't wait to get on the Wii U train.  I have been buying games the past month while awaiting to buy my console (so far just used Nintendoland for $10 at BB and ZombiU for $12 at Target clearance).  Will watch for Zelda Windwaker next.  I'm sure I'll have time to play the Wii U in between Pokemon X sessions and fooling around with the PS4.  

TY OP for constantly updating this thread.

Pretty sure it's back up to $60 on the eShop but the retail release is on sale for $30 at Amazon right now and that's the same as what it was on sale for digitally.

Did you guys notice that thread about getting a new Wii U Mario/Luigi Deluxe bundle off Buy.com via eBay for $250?  They sold out, then more were up for $265.  Anyway, I got one of the $265 ones, and it was supposed to be arriving November 15 or so.

 

Unfortunately, people starting arguing like obnoxious, bickery children, and the thread got locked, so I can't post there.  

 

There reason I want to post there is because I just got an e-mail from Buy (or Rakuten or something) saying my order HAS BEEN DELAYED.  It's a back-order now.  I wanted to commiserate.  Don't suppose anyone from that thread is in here?  Anyway I guess I'll just contact them, but I'll be really sad if my order gets canceled or if it's backordered indefinitely or something.  I'd be fine waiting until Christmas, but all I can think about is all the deals I'll miss out on (for instance, Wii Fit U at the moment).

 

:(

 

Also, Nintendo has that promotion where you get such and such % back on stuff you but on the Wii U eshop.  I want to take advantage of that, too, but I'm stuck in backorder limbo.
