Asda cuts Wii U price by £100. Again.

Asda has once again aggressively slashed the price of Wii U.

It’s the second time the retailer has cut 100 off Nintendo’s new console. It reduced the cost back in May.

The Wii U Premium Set (which comes with Nintendoland) is now just 199, while the Basic Set is a mere 149.99.

Wii U has struggled for momentum since its launch last November. Although that’s not entirely a price issue, a lack of software has been an equally big issue.

Nintendo hopes the launch of Pikmin 3 at the end of this month can help generate some sales, and so Asda’s price cut might prove timely.
