Heh, I'm not one to over-think things like that but what I do know is that this WiiU price drop has made things a tad easier to get one for Christmas. XD

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

I'm not too fond of it, really. I thought the Wii U had a pretty good value before. It seems that too many people expected a drop after the 3DS got one. Now that the Wii U has lowered in price as well, everyone will expect Nintendo product to have price cuts. This reminds me of my cats: I give them a single can of tuna, and they expect it every time.
Of course, such measures may have been necessary given the current economic climate. We'll see how the PS4 and Xbone preform after launch.

Good for consumers, but bad for Nintendo.
I remember there being several articles on Nintendo saying that they weren't going to do a price drop for quite some time and for good reason!
I'm pretty sure the original price they were selling it at was for a loss......
So how is this helping their situation??

I'm not bugged by it at all. I enjoy playing my Wii U since day one, and I also got a chance to benefit from all the promotions that took place up to now like the 30 cents games, Rayman legends app, discounts on game contents downloads, etc.

Besides Sony did almost the same thing with the PS3. Release two versions of a system ($500 and $600), discontinued the cheaper version months later (can't say if Nintendo did that or not), and drop the price of the next by $100 months after, all before the 1 year anniversary. I think the first xbox did the same but can't remember.

If more people buy the Wii U because of it, it's a good thing for both the consumer and Nintendo.

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm probably not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

Well I think Nintendo is playing the 3DS strategy where the price is apparently perfect so they're not going to drop the price but then the Vita was announced and they were like, nope we're still not dropping the price, and then when the release date was just around the corner they were like damn we have to drop the price.

Nintendo has now set an expectation in the consumer minds to wait for the first price drop, limited edition bundles. Outside of early adopters and Nintendo fanatics people will wait for NIntendo's next resuscitation move unless there is an incredible value that is clearly demonstrated to the customer. I doubt they can do this because Nintendo has not directly captivated me since the SNES. I feel like I have to seek out all things Nintendo instead of them reaching me.

Too little too late was my first reaction to be honest, but mostly I was more distracted by the thoughts such as is that 2DS thing real and no really is it real though.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.
