Duck Tales is coming soon for the Wii U. That's exciting. I need that in my life again.

It's a good game, but being a port of a game I already played in the past I won't be spending $50 on it.

Report: Best Buy also returning Wii U Basic

(5 hours ago)
54


Best Buy is the next big retailer sending back its Wii U Basic units to Nintendo. Nintendo World Report has an image pulled from Best Buy's internal system stating "stores should pull all new in box [Wii U Basic] units and send them back" starting tomorrow. It also notes that stores should see more Wii U Deluxe units arrive in the coming weeks.

GameStop is also currently going through a similar send-back of the Wii U Basic.

Nintendo previously stated any notion of a recall of the Wii U Basic is a "misperception" and that the company is "working with its retail partners to simply rebalance the stock of the White 8GB and the Black 32GB Wii U models in the market." The House of Mario claims consumers will be able to continue purchasing both models. The Wii U has struggled since launch, with the regular Wii outperforming its progeny.

I wonder what the new bundle will be? You know they'll have one...more so if the basic is indeed being recalled. I also think this is more proof of a price drop. Wonder how low they'll go? Some of my friends are think 199.99...I think that's a bit TOO low...But, it is Nintendo. They're full of crrrrrrrrrrrrrazy ideas.

more likely the Deluxe for $299 and a Basic for $250. The system isnt going to drop $100. Thats just crazy

I fully expect it to. Nintendo tends to do drastic price drops if their stuff ain't selling...The 3DS went from 250 to 169...That's an 80 dollar price drop. What's another 20 bucks?

They can't sell off the remaining stock because it isn't selling.

If the WiiU drops even lower I might pick one up when I get a job. There are few U games and old Wii games that I do want to play.

The 3DS was overpriced to begin with as Nintendo was selling it for a profit straight out the gate. The are selling the Wii-U at a lost. $100 price drop doesnt seem likely.

yep when Nintendo drops prices of most of their products to the lower 100 $ people come out of the wood works/ shadows and buy in bulk. It's worked before and it will happen again. it was why the Wii was top seller too or part of the reason. People always said it was cause of affordability that system sold mostly.

It's Nintendo. They've been doing this style of drop for YEARS. There will not be two sku's. It will be one...and it will be a 250 price point. More so if the PS4 launches at 400.

People were claiming that the WiiU would be 450-500...I said 350.. I was right. I'm willing to wait and see...But that's what I expect.

they just have to do thing's smart with both their Exclusives and third partys they have Directors cut with Deus Ex: Human revolutions. and they have Bayonetta 2 and another Xeno blade on the way just to name a few if they can just have some more like what happening with ubisoft and watch dog's they will be fine. with the affordability.

That article says there will still be 2 SKUs. Besides I was disputing the console dropping down to $199. I said I see $250. $199 doesn't seem likely

Ooooooh.

I suppose there could be two sku's...I just don't see it happening as Nintendo barely sold the deluxe version. Sorry, misunderstood what you meant, I agree...199 is too drastic. I suppose they COULD go that low...But what would the Wii drop to? 50 bucks?

hehe they 'll do it eventually. It's not like anymore people will be buying any more Wii's. and the Wii u is Backwards Compatible. so if they buy the older Wii titles they can play it on the Wii U.

I tried to go to Best Buy to play those demo's, but I couldn't even get near the damn things. My Best Buy had one 30" TV in a back corner around which was a tightly packed crowd of 150 or so people. It was the dumbest set up I've seen for something like this.

I heard Nintendo are working on a free-to-play game. Would that be the 1st one or have they already tried that?

Crimson Dragon developer Grounding Inc working on new Nintendo project

(6 hours ago)
10

Grounding Inc is hard at work creating Crimson Dragon for Xbox One, but the studio is also making another unannounced project for Nintendo, game director Yukio Futatsugi tells Joystiq. Unfortunately, Futatsugi didn't offer any details about the game or which platform it's being developed for.

Crimson Dragon may be getting Grounding the most attention right now, but the studio has a history of working with Nintendo. It developed two Nintendo-published WiiWare games in 2009, and it also released Sakura Samurai on the 3DS eShop last year.

source: Joystiq

yeah since square had to make the directors cut to Deus Ex: human Revolutions to all consoles to stop hearing from other customers that just want to play on those consoles from complaining which I guess I and maybe Nintendo can't blame them since they were in trouble with their FF series Etc it made sense this would happen. In way Let's hope they pick up more titles that will be exclusive to them be it first and 3rd party.

I guess this settles the question of how powerful the Wii U is.
