currently they are still expensive. wii u should only be $149. but i think Nintendo wants to get all the money they can. as time passes wii u will be cheap. that's until it becomes collectible. Snes games were cheap in 2001. then 20010 comes and they are 300% more expensive. you will have to wait until you have cash. or expect to wait a few years for it to be in the sales bin. in 1996 virtual boys were being sold for $20 each new. well they aint $20 anymore. you do have the emulator but it needs a good pc.
