European mega retailer is dumping Wii U inventory at $99 Euros a pop
While the Wii U has been selling great over the past few months thanks to high-profile games from Nintendo, there are still some who don’t believe in the console (such as game industry analysts whose initials are M.P.).
We can now definitely add German mega retailer Media Markt to that list. They are in the process of dumping all of their Wii U inventory in Belgium, selling off the console at just 99 Euros — or $135 bucks (image via NeoGAF).
This isn’t the first time this is happening — last year Australian retailer Dick Smith was selling off its Wii U inventory (including accessories) at a 50% discount.
While Media Markt apparently doesn’t believe in the Wii U, many other retailers do. The Wii U sales have increased steadily since August and the launch of Pikmin 3, and sold over 100,000 units in Japan during the last week of 2013. There are even rumors that the Wii U outsold the Xbox One the week before Christmas.
Either way, if you’re in Belgium, now is the time to get a Wii U. In fact, buy a couple of them and sell them once we get Mario Kart 8, the new Zelda and other Wii U exclusives. Make a quick buck for yourself.
UPDATE: We’re receiving conflicting reports on this — it might have been a quick sale of the Wii U instead of a regular clearance sale. We’ll update this article as more information becomes available.
