That's weird, man. When I lived there in 2004-2006, GameCube stuff was always hell of expensive, and I feel like the Gamecube was somehow almost less popular than the WiiU.

...nah, that can't be true.

Wow the wii u really must be dying... Will Nintendo withdraw from the console market?

Also if you look on that site there aren't any actual games for the wii u on there...

To save anyone else from looking up conversion rates, one NZ dollar is currently worth 1.27 US dollars.

Edit: But maybe that site with the sale is using US dollars anyway? Eh, whatever, seems to be a super-cheap clearance sale either way.

Consoles and games are still expensive. The Xbox One will be $750, the PS4 is $650, games are usually $90-$120. Minimum wage is now like $14 a hour I think so they are not so outlandish as they used to be.

And it's true I have reserved one for pick up! Not sure why, there aren't any games but they will release something good! Right! Right?

I'd say they are just discontinuing selling the Wii U to make room on the shelfs for the PS4 and XBone in the future.

No it is in NZD, you can't even get them delivered it's pick up only.
