The Wii U Basic model will see a $100 markdown at Wal-Mart in Canada, and will sell for $199, according to a scan of the retailer's latest advertisement obtained by Gimme Gimme Games.
The markdown will go into effect on Friday, August 2, according to the advertisement. The 8GB Basic model currently retails for $300, while the 32GB Deluxe edition goes for $350. ..
Nintendo has had a tough time moving Wii U units since launch, selling only 160,000 systems during the April-June quarter and 3.61 million systems overall. Asda, a Wal-Mart subsidiary and the United Kingdom's second-largest supermarket, stopped stocking the Wii U in its stores this week.
Uhm, you would think they would drop that 32 gig model price too, huh?
I just want Galaxy 3 and Zelda at this point. Here's to another year til E3.
