Wii U Deluxe US - Edited

While the recommended retail price for the Wii U Deluxe model in the U.S. is currently $299.99, that hasn't stopped some less expensive alternatives emerging. Just recently we had a crazily good deal from Newegg of the Wind Waker HD hardware bundle and two games for just $269.99, and now potential Wii U owners in the U.S. have another offer to consider.

Just over a week ago we reported that Nintendo of America was offering refurbished Wii U Deluxe sets for $250 on its official online store. It's now temporarily reduced that price further to $225. There could be "minor cosmetic blemishes", but Nintendo provides a guarantee that the hardware will work as expected, and as they're Deluxe models eShop purchases on them will be eligible for the Nintendo Network Premium promotion. Below is what's included at the price.

  • 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

The only real limitation is that the console itself can't be redeemed for coins on Club Nintendo.

It's unclear how long these refurbished units will be available at this new lower price in the U.S. Do you think this is a good deal?

Thanks to Ntabruzzo for the tip.
