A few months ago we reported that it was rumored Nintendo might be giving up on the Wii U 8GB basic model. It looks like retailers stepped in before Nintendo, as GameStop, Target, and Best Buy are no longer stocking the 8GB model of the Wii U. This is huge for that specific SKU, since GameStop and Best Buy are the two biggest places to buy games in the United States.
There’s no word from Nintendo on this just yet, but expect that white 8GB Wii U to become a collector’s item shortly.
