I read about this but didn't read into it. Can't figure out the meaning for it. Maybe a new WiiU model is on the way and will be considerably cheaper?

It's more than likely to do with the fact that they couldn't shift the Wii U's enough to turn enough of  a profit to keep them on. I see this happening eventually with the Vita, even though I have one.
