The Wii U has been subject to deep price cuts in the UK since the beginning of this year, with retailer Asda leading the charge. The Wii U 8GB basic set now retails for £149.99, while the Wii U 32GB premium retails for £199.99. This is a £99.99 price cut for both versions.
It’s not hard to see why both Asda and Amazon UK are lowering the prices of these units to stay competitive, as it was recently revealed that only 180k units of Wii U software have been sold in the UK in the last six months. Both Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 are expected to boost these numbers once they’re released.
