Wii U basic $199 at Walmart Canada

It looks like the basic version of Nintendo’s Wii U console will dropping down to $199 at Walmart locations in Canada starting today Friday, August 2, according to a retailer ad that sprouted up online. The ad notes that the sale counts for online purchases as well.

The basic model’s standard retail price is $300, whereas the deluxe model is normally $350. Given that Nintendo moved just 160,000 Wii U consoles worldwide in Q1 2014 (April 2013 through June 2013), discounting its home console may just be a good idea. Also, the fact that its lost a lot of 3rd party support this is definitely warranted. Let’s see if this price drop hits the US soon.
