Nintendo cuts Wii U price in North America, UK to follow?

The price of the Premium Wii U bundle has been slashed by $50 in the US and Canada.

The price cut will come into effect on September 20th, according to CVG.

Nintendo of America also plans to phase out the 8GB Basic model by focuses on more compelling game-and-console bundles with the 32GB version.

While Nintendo of America has directly instigated this cut to the price, Nintendo of Europe and its UK arm have historically been less involved.

MCV contacted Nintendo for comment, but the platform holder reiterated that the price of its products is ultimately set by retailers.

MCV has also contacted its Retail Advisory Board to see how the price will alter in the UK.

Throughout this year, UK retailers have reduced the price of Wii U to as low as 100.
