Target is now selling the 8GB white Nintendo Wii U console for $239 as opposed to the full retail price of $299. That is a $60 price cut, though it is a bit too soon to say that this cut will encourage more customers to pick up this console, which has apparently been moving off the shelves very slowly. Many analysts have already reported that Wii U sales have been very disappointing in the last couple of months, Nintendo claims the reason for this is that there’s a lack of software titles. The company says the need to aggressively focus on this and it hopes to curb this problem by the end of the year.
Many retailers do not offer discounts on the Nintendo Wii U, Target is offering the biggest discount by far, even surpassing Amazon’s $279.99 price tag for this console. However the 32GB black Wii U will still set customers back the usual retail price of $349.99. If you have been considering buying this console, now is perhaps the best time to waltz in your local Target and pick one up for a steal.
