    So guys I think we are all on the hunt for cheap games/accessories/bundles and I want to put here every information on Wii U cheap stuff in European Union.
    I would start with zavvi and I am waiting for others. For example I am in search of a Wii U Pro Controller and for now it seems like Amazon.co.uk is the best option.

    From my experiences, I can only recollect of one time where the price was wrong. So I guess pretty often.

    Nice, I'll add it to my bookmarks.

    I also recommend using the New > Gaming filter on HotUKDeals, some pretty cheap stuff pops up now an again

    Nope, the OP is from Romania and as far as I know there's no way to see if the stores they list ship to other European countries.

    I was under the assumption this thread was generally to find deal in Europe rather than anyone's specific interests.

    European online stores is what the OP asked for, you posted a site which updates with UK deals only and most UK stores don't ship to our countries. Amazon UK and Zavvi are the only ones I know who does this.

    I think its a process of manually looking through each shop to find out if they do post there, better than nothing though

    I think that some EU countries have lower prices than UK and with sales, could be really nice deals out there. With the help of goggle translate, the language barrier is no longer a problem.

    Its the 20% VAT that we have, makes stuff quite expensive compared to US prices, an obvious comparison would be the 3DS eshop, the UK prices are inflated compared to NA prices.

    Here the VAT is 24% so prices are higher in UK for other reasons :D

    29.95€ inc. 24% VAT. + shipping.

    I just want to point out that most times prices are cheaper in the UK than Finland. Most stores here are very slow to lower prices post release.

    Thanks Qtis, it is very strange that if I browse the Finnish Origin site I cannot find the Most Wanted for Wii U.

    Yeah that seems about right... That's actually very cheap! In other regular game stores, NFS Most Wanted for Wii U is ~65.50 Euro (549 Kr)

    The Zavvi prices seem rather high. £316 for the Premium Pack, where as Amazon UK has it for £250.

    I've gotta say that the eshop is doing some price-cutting as well. I almost felt bad about it: I went to a game store where assassin's creed 3 was still the full price (65 euro's), bought a nintendo eshop card...and used that to buy the game for 30 euro's online. Yes, it had to download and install the entire afternoon, and not having the disk is a bit of a miss, but it's still quite a difference in price.
