Only at Walmart?  No, other stores are dropping the price pretty aggressively too.  Everyone is blowing out the Wii U basic models, it seems.

 

Only in Canada? Well, this is the Canada forum... doesn't mean the US won't have price drops, but we don't get US flyers here so it's hard to say.

Not on sale yet (as of yesterday night, at least) but starting soon.

 

Price drop vs sale price: not sure, but since the Basic model that is seeing a price drop has (apparently) been discontinued you should probably view this as a temporary deal.

$200 already?  And I bet this thing still won't sale......... Nintendo really screwed the pooch on this one........ Anyways I thought the basic model had been discontinued and shipped back to Nintendo?

Being discontinued is (presumably) why it's on such a great sale.

 

Walmart doesn't ship things back, do they?  I was under the impression that they just mark down prices and clear out stock that is discontinued or unwanted - probably passing any loss back to Nintendo in the process.

If it was $200 here in the States, I would pick one up.

Confirmed. Bought a 8GB for $199. There were also a few Wii U games heavily discounted. Nintendoland, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Batman: Arkham City were all discounted to $10. YMMV on that one, but I already saw someone pick up multiple copies of each game to flip them.

Those are incredible deals. I wish these sales would hit the states. Even though I have decided on my next-gen console choice this November, I still want a Wii U because it's Nintendo.

Wonder when these prices will hit the states.

 

$199 is the price of the deluxe model and $149 for basic in New Zealand:http://nzgamer.com/all/news/6627/

 

Maybe Nintendo's coming out with a bigger hard drive.

They'll either increase the internal memory the Wii U currently has, or include an HDD with the console. I'm pretty sure one of those will happen with-in the next six months. My money's on the latter.

That seems like the logical thing for Nintendo to do since sales aren't so great. and they've been doing that for a while with the 3DS and DS
