A recent retail promotion that saw Wii U drop to an all-new low price has been extended.
GameStop last Friday announced a deal that saw the 32GB Premium Wii U available for just 244.97. However, the retailer has now said that it has extended the offer while stocks last”.
GameStop has previously admitted to disappointing sales of the Wii U, with president Tony Bartel stating: Following the holiday launch period, sales have been slower than we expected. Nintendo plans on launching some of their biggest IP over the next few months which we think will increase gamer interest.
Software will play a big role in each console's success over the holidays. We're already seeing great developer and publisher support for PS4, so Wii U will need some great titles, especially first-party titles, to compete. There's also a need to increase consumer awareness of the new features available on the Wii U and its tethered tablet features.”
The retailer also has a promotion running on Microsoft's the Halo 4 Limited Edition Xbox 360 S console that can currently be had for 214.97 – that's a 45 discount on the previous price.
