1rjejrFri 30th Aug 2013 The Wii U has been all over the news the past few days w/ the $50 price drop, but nobody is talking about why the delay until Sept 20? Why not do it now when everybody is talking about it? It's 3 weeks away. I thought the retailers would drop now, but Bestbuy.com, TRU.com and Target.com still have it for $349.99. By the time the price drops everybody will be talking about PS4/X1 again. I have 2 theories - Conspiracy theory - "price protection" plans so retailers don't have to refund $50 to recent purchases. If true, Nintendo is purposely screwing over Wii U purchases, and that's just wrong. Stupidity theory - Nintendo just keeps screwing up the Wii U. I know the Zelda bundle releases that day, but it's easy to drop the price TODAY and still have the bundle come out on Sept 20. Really, that's a lot easier than a 3 week delay. All the people on all the other threads who keep saying "no ambassador program, price drops are normal" - is 3 weeks notice for a price drop normal? Placeholder sig until I come up with something clever to say.
