Good deal since amazon doesn't sell Wii U and they usually list for above msrp on there.

Should be no tax for most people.

It looks like prices are going to drop more.

prices might supposedly drop on the games for the system but not the system itself is what the article says which would make more sense since the system itself did see a price drop barely 4 months ago

The Mario and Luigi bundle was sold for $249.99 multiple times after that price drop as well.

Selling the figures and the games should be at least $70.

I got the bundle for $249.49 last week. I think a lot of people tried to flip their bundle stuff after the $239 Walmart deal started as eBay is flooded with listings.

Wake me up when Amazon actually starts selling these and not just fulfilling orders from 3rd parties

3rd party prime is just as good as Amazon on stuff like this.

If you say so and are okay with buying a console from someone who bought out all the inventory from TRU or TRU via Newegg when they had a sale. 

 

I'd much rather buy from someone who gets their inventory directly from Nintendo.

According to every article written everywhere on the internet, these will be in the clearance bins with the Ouya in six months.

Way too little storage in this with a pitiful 8gb. I think the Skylanders bundle was mainly a way for Nintendo to get rid of excess Wii U "basic" systems, which sold poorly since the beginning.

Actually the 8GB is plenty so is the 32GB. And really the 32GB is equally pitiful if you plan on downloading retail games. You really need an external USB drive to keep you games on. I don't plan buying digital games, I prefer discs so the remaining 3GB is more than enough for me.

My buy price is gonna be ~$200 and not involve me offloading any parts of it.

I don't want the hassle.

Gonna need it to come from BBY or can be PM'ed to them. Got credit I'd like to use.

Normally when a product doesn't sell , the manufacturer lowers the price. I've already seen multiple sales already from different retailers. It wouldn't surprise me if some retailer sold the Mario and Luigi bundle for $200 instead of $250 like before.

If you include sales (and coupons of course) from retailers , it could definitely be under $200 then.

Still way too much for this system. Should be $150 with Mario Kart included later this year.

With a coupon or retailer sale that might be possible.

 

That's why I'm trying to get people to wait.

I wonder if we get enough people to stop buying PS4s we can force them to drop the price. Hmm.

The PS4 is in another league.

 

The Wii U is like a PS3 but the PS3 has a better library right now.

 

Nintendo is a generation behind so the Wii U should compete with the PS3 price wise.

 

Instead of pointing people towards a Wii U , I point them towards a PS3.

The PS3 is a much better console considering what it has and its current price point.

 

I know some people will tell me that the PS3 is too old but guess what , the Wii U is using technology that's not much more advanced than what the PS3 uses and it's definitely inferior in some ways ( e.g.  the Wii U does not use a SATA connection or anything comparable in speed).

You can't stop people when PS4 sellout soon as it's available.  Wii U is just sitting on the shelves of the stores so you can stop people from purchasing it.

I think people want bundles with games when it comes to this system. The stores that have the original black deluxe systems still have their original shipment from launch since no one bought them, those stores are Sears and Sam's club which are really unpopular stores to buy video games at. But the stores like Target that received the Mario and Zelda bundles, those are selling out. Nintendo games are expensive and don't drop in price so people are clearly looking for a bundle deal with this system so they can get the game they want to play without having to fork over an extra $50-60 for it.

 

The skylanders bundle doesn't seem to be selling, but most retailers here didn't get that in, the only retailers here that got that one in is Gamestop and probably Walmart. Target didn't have it here. Toys R Us had it but that isn't really local to me. Sam's hasn't gotten anything since the original deluxe model but that is to be expected. Game consoles just don't sell at Sears so again, that is to be expected as well.

The original Deluxe system is a bundle. It includes Nintendoland.

The skylanders bundle doesn't seem to be selling, but most retailers here didn't get that in, the only retailers here that got that one in is Gamestop and probably Walmart. Target didn't have it here. Toys R Us had it but that isn't really local to me. Sam's hasn't gotten anything since the original deluxe model but that is to be expected. Game consoles just don't sell at Sears so again, that is to be expected as well.


I think the issue with the Skylanders bundle is that the majority of Skylanders business at this point are return customers. They purchased one or both of the previous games on another platform and likely want to stick with that platform.
