The Wii U hasn’t been selling too well in the UK and retailer Asda joins the list of stores that have cut the price by £50. The basic white unit is now being sold for £149, while the premium 32GB black deluxe model that includes Nintendo Land is priced at £199.
In March, Asda was the catalyst for the massive unofficial price drop, dropping prices from £249 to £199 for the 8GB model and £299 to £249 for the 32GB model. Retailers seem to be losing their faith in selling Nintendo consoles and are attempting to get rid of the mass of stock they have. This is bad news for the company, after its fiscal reports showed that it only sold 3.45 million Wii Us globally. This price cut will likely lead to other price cuts across the UK, so it seems like now is the best time for those in Great Britain to buy in to the Wii U ecosystem.
