Best Buy drops price of Wii U Basic by $50


Posted by: Matt Liebl

Could this signal the first wave of incoming price cuts for Nintendo's Wii U? Best Buy, in an effort to attract consumers, has lowered the price of the Wii U Basic Bundle to $249.99, a $50 price cut from the normal $299 retail price. Early in its lifecycle, Nintendo has struggled to move Wii U units, leading many to speculate the company could soon introduce a permanent price cut. Just to note, the two-day sale only applies to the Basic Wii U bundle. The 32GB Deluxe set still remains priced at $349.99.

The Basic bundle includes an 8GB Wii U and the GamePad controller. If you plan on downloading a number of games or apps, you may want to use the $50 savings to invest in an external hard drive.

There's also a number of games on sale, including Far Cry 3 for just $29.99, Black Ops 2 for $39.99, and Assassin's Creed 3 for $39.99. Check out Best Buy's savings here.
