Following Nintendo revealing that they’ve dramatically lowered profit forecasts, various UK retailers have heavily slashed the price of the Wii U to £179.99 – the same price that the original Wii launched at way back in 2006, this also marks the lowest price that the Wii U has ever been sold at.

UK Retailers Argos and Amazon have heavily slashed the price of the Wii U Premium bundle which includes a Black console, a Black Gamepad, and Nintendo Land by a massive £120 making this the lowest the Wii U has ever been priced. This is most likely an occurrence of Nintendo revealing that they’ve lowered profit forecasts.

Nintendo have since spoken out and revealed that this isn’t an official price drop and that it’s the retailers themselves who have dramatically slashed the price, or as they call it “retailer activity”.

It’s also looking likely that other retailers may follow suit. We’ll update this post if more news on this subject surfaces.
