While two of the biggest retailers in the UK are dropping Wii U console prices, the tale naturally varies elsewhere. Gamers in North America currently considering a Wii U find some retailers sticking with the recommended 32GB price of $299 — there are some cheaper options.
Just like major retailers such as GameStop, Nintendo of America is offering refurbished Wii U systems for a little less, at $250; they're in stock on the official online store, for those that would prefer to deal directly with the company. While there may be "minor cosmetic blemishes", these refurbished Deluxe systems include the following:
- Wii U console (Black/32GB Internal Storage)
- Wii U GamePad (Black)
- Nintendo Land game disc
- Wii U AC Adapter
- Wii U GamePad AC Adapter
- High Speed HDMI Cable
- Sensor Bar
These systems are eligible for the Deluxe Digital Promotion that provides points and funds for Wii U eShop purchases, though they can't be registered for coins on Club Nintendo; this is all applicable on the US store, to be precise.
So, are any of you tempted, or perhaps know others that are looking for a Wii U at this sort of price?
