    Yeah, it's a bit of shame that. I've completely avoided downloading anything that can be bought elsewhere, for that reason. Unless of course it's only available digitally, and isn't 20 or more.

    I bought Deus Ex, Pikmin 3, Zelda, W101, Luigi U and Zombi U from the eshop. Some were full price but iirc they mostly had some kind of deal or promotion attached to them.

    3DS: 2019-9957-3472

    So the Wii U + Mario Kart 8 bundle is 250. What on earth are they doing.

    Edit: Amazon have gone back up to 250 now.

    I know some folk are banking on a price drop here, but I can't see it. The 3DS XL still goes for around 150 - 175. They're selling the XL bundled with Mario Kart 7 for 199. I can't see them matching that price with the Wii U and Mario Kart 8.

    The difference is that the DS is a product that people actually want to buy.

    Missing a trick not pricing it at 200. Its been out long enough and doing badly enough to warrant a price drop. Mario Kart will only make it fly off the shelves briefly, a more sensible price would knock a few fence sitters off their perch and make a longer term sales boost a possibility.

    It is a bit odd considering I picked mine up for 199.99 with SMBU + Luigi in November.

    Would 200 with MK8 even tempt people if they already think it's doomed..

    I still cant quite believe that they didnt have it out in time for christmas. I mean, really, even mario kart wont sell consoles in the middle of the year.

    I know they're still playing the "we don't set RRPs" because of that legal bother they had a few years back, but they really need to do an advert where they give a vague price again. They've done that before, saying it'll be around X without commiting.

    It really does need to be 200. Heck, I assume it probably will be and Amazon are just putting that price out to be first out the gate.

    I would get one for 199.99 with MK8.

    I'd say it needs to be 149.99 with MK8 at this point. Supply and demand and all that jazz.

    For a dead console - 200 is way too much

    Bought my Dreamcast when it his 150, and I loved that console. Mind you, god knows what 150 in 2002 money is worth today.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I want to get another Wii U at some point to mop up the exclusives but 250 is laughable at this point.

    It's limping along at the moment with nary a muttering from Nintendo about what they intend to do to turn things around.

    I will buy it for 150 with MK8. No more.

    E3 likely to disappoint. Im only going on past form of all the directs etc.

    Probably be online deals for this cheaper than 250

    The reviews are going to be hyper interesting, whether they are high or low. Lots of popcorn will be consumed.

    At one point the Gamecube was priced at 79.99 bundled with Mario Kart plus two further games from the Player's Choice range.

    Bargain pricing doesn't work when the platform itself is driving away customers.

    I like the sliding value comments. The same thing is happening in the XBone thread.

    A few months ago everyone was saying "200 + Mario and I would buy one", now it is 150 + Mario Kart 8!

    :lol:

    Shown their true colours with the (lack of) gamepad features in MK8. Won't be long now until a basic unit is released with just a pro controller bundled. Might even be called something completely different but have the same innards. It's just like how they wound down 3D before introducing the 2DS.

    Yeah, as the PS4 and X1 come on song and the lack of pipeline of any kind for the WiiU becomes clear, effective pricing becomes the only way to shift these things and will be driven ever lower.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    8/10

    Far too good to mark badly, but too much of an incremental change from the last one to mark excellently.

    The new one seems like it's picked up some tricks from Sonic Racing Transformed like nerfing items significantly (No more hoarding as there's a time limit on held items. Blue shell got a major nerf) and being an overall faster game. I'd probably stick it at a potential 9.

    I picked my Wii-U up 4 after trade ins on a bag of old 360/PS3 games at CEX because the forgot to lower a bunch of prices in Ireland down to the same pittance as in Britain (Vanilla Marvel Vs Capcom 3 voucher price was at 10). Picked up 3D World and Tropical Freeze with it. 3D World is nice. TF is made by people who hate you and your inferior platforming skills.

    That might actually appeal to people and be a smart move.
    You don't alienate your current flock of loyal nintendo fans, they can still play future games on their Wii U, and everyone else is interested by this console with a new name. Of course, a fuck ton of awesome games would have to come out to make it even viable.

    Damn that sorcerer! Twenty gold pieces and Im wankered on Rohypnol.

    @Recon64

    Pop to your nearest Toys R Us if you fancy a 'hands on' with the Wii U before you (possibly) purchase the thingmabobbins.

    ... they do some good deals sometimes, especially with Ubisoft games like Just Dance 4, Rayman Legends, Your Shape Fitness Evolved (not a bad game actually!) and ZombiU.
