    Target, Best Buy, and GameStop don't sell it online anymore and they are not located in any store within 100 miles of me. Walmart doesn't have it either and only has 3rd party sellers selling for $400+

    I guess Nintendo didn't need to price drop the console to shift the last few units.

    By me there's no shortage at all. 32GB black console with Gamepad and all for $220 at Gamestop. Craigslist has a bunch too.

    I bought the Windwaker edition for $300, I'll probably sell my launch year basic for $200...

    Just read about freggin Wii U recalls. It's bullshit that Nintendo would rather discontinue and recall the damn console instead of doing a price drop and getting some last minute sales. Ugh! Nintendo is like the stereotypical ex boyfriend that says they will change, brings you flowers and roses and then proceeds to beat the shit outta you, the following night.

    Most likely, retailers already kept few of them and they were more than happy to sell the last ones with no intention of restocking...

    That said I bought my 8GB (allegedly discontinued since a while, or was that a junk rumor?) last year for 180 € open box, not bad at all for a game$top
