According to a post on Red Flag Deals, a Canadian site dedicated to finding retail deals, certain Target stores in Canada are now offering the 8GB Wii U Basic for $149.99. Many people on the forums have mentioned placing their order and getting the unit at the stated price.
This comes after Asda’s steep price cuts and eventual announcement that it would no longer be stocking Wii U units in their stores. As retailers opt to price the Wii U at their own deep discounts, Nintendo is going to have to do something in order to get the state of Wii U sales under control.
Currently there’s no word on whether or not Target stores in the United States will have this discount.
