Wow.

I did hear the original Wii outsold the Wii U recently, so I wonder if this sale price is in any way related.

It'll be interesting if this deal starts popping up at other retailers over the next few days. With E3 only a few weeks away I could see them announcing a price drop and possibly even phasing out this model because of its limited storage.

Price is tempting but not a lot of games right.

I also noticed they have a bundle of the basic console plus New Super Mario U for $289 for an extra $10 savings vs buying both separately.

You'd probably be able to take the online price and match it at either Target or Best Buy.

They'll match it at the customer service register. Just did it with a ps3 bundle (epic mickey with move) the other day where it was $30 less on their site than in store.

This would be a good gamble, considering E3 is coming up next month. However, if it can get to 240, it can be 199 by holiday season.

$145 for 3DS and $175 for 3DS XL.

Plus with PS3 remote play you can basically PLay your PS3 games on your PSP Go anywhere you are basically making it a Portable PS3


But Metroid sucks. I consider it Gunpei Yokoi's worst creation, even beating the Virtual Boy.


RE: XBox ONE

at least they change their name and not name their systems 1,2,3,4

In for 1. I think I'm going to bite because i never had a vanilla Wii.

I don't expect to play much other than the few Wii games I missed. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt with the games. You'd think they'd at least have a new Zelda for it before it dies right?

At $240 if it goes $40 cheaper I won't feel bad. Thanks OP.

Same at my Local store. Picked up the Cradle/Stand for $9.98. Did not want too miss it by waiting for 70%. Worth it for those like me who got the Basic bundle.

Argh, if the deluxe had this kind of drop, I'd buy it instantly! Is the only real difference between the deluxe and the basic the memory and Nintendo Land? I still may jump on this since I work at target and I get an additional 15% off with red card..

After Microsoft's disappointing Xbox One reveal "conference", I'm more convinced than ever that the Wii U will be my next console purchase. I also wish this discount applied to the Deluxe model; I'm holding out for $250 or less for that. :pray:

Just a PS to those wanting the Deluxe over the Basic, you can get Nintendoland for about 40$ or less currently making the total of the Basic and Nintendoland the MSRP of the Basic.

And if you are looking for extra memory, get one of these: Sandisk 32GB Compact Flash Drive Or use an external HDD.

Yeah, the main deciding factor for me was more memory.. Nintendo Land would be cool too, but it basically will come out to the same price difference, since its on sale. Isn't there something else about getting 10% off online store purchases with the Deluxe as well?

No. If they are (or were) taking a lose at 300 a price drop is still possible, but 100$ off (loss) not likely.

Man, I'm seriously considering PMing this at BBY, using a $20 RZ certificate (all I have left to redeem) and the ~$125 I have left on my Pitch-In Card, and paying the remaining ~$108 (including tax) out of my pocket... :-k

But is there a chance of a better bundle/value/deal appearing down the road? That's the only reason I'm not chomping at the bit for this deal right now.

I price matched at Best Buy. I feel this might be the best price we will get in a little while on the console.

Not exactly, but you get something like 10% extra points or credits with the Deluxe, which only lasts another year or 2 I believe. It's not for the life the system. You also get a charging cradle for the pad. And the console is black instead of white.

This is tempting, but I would prefer the Deluxe model for the extra storage, cradle and packed-in game (which I keep hearing is a lot of fun, more than you might expect). Hopefully that drops to $250 by Xmas.

the reward promotion for the deluxe was for the intitial launch systems, where you get i think it was 5% off games or something like that but someone correct me if I am wrong. Also you can get nintendo land for $20 used at gamestop.

I think it's 10% on purchases in the eShop. It pays out in $5 increments, is on all deluxe models, not just launch, and is only valid for a year.

I coul dbe wrong on some of those details.
