The price for the Standard Pack has dropped from 299 to 199 euros, and that of the Premium Pack is now 249 down from 349 euros.
It’s unclear how long these price cuts will last; though I doubt they’ll get any cheaper. So, if you want a Wii U but don’t yet have one, then there’s no better time to buy.
The 3DS received a similar– albeit official–price drop six months after its launch; so a similar decision for the Wii U isn’t too surprising. While the console sold well during its debut, the momentum has since tapered.
If this price drop isn’t official, then perhaps Nintendo is holding out until the verge of release of Sony and Microsoft’s next home consoles.
