    That is not a typo.

    OH MY GOD, IT'S A FIRE... SALE!

    It's going to vary from store to store, and it doesn't mean they'll stop selling Wii Us forever, but if you want the system cheap, here's your opportunity.

    Edit: Just checked the link, my old question is answered, these are Deluxe models.

    In addition to this, everyone should know that if they aren't a member of the Sam's Club, they can't buy it without becoming one, which costs at least $40. Even still this sounds like it can be quite the steal.

    Wasn't Sam's Club related to Walmart? Somehow this headline looks familiar

    Just called my local Sam's Club. They're selling it for $199.

    They also informed me that they were sold out =P

    Does Sam's Club ship to home address' from individual stores? I'm a member but all the locations around me are sold out. if someone knows a location with wii u's in stock at $150 or below I'd love to get their number via a PM.

    They are trying to clear out shell space so they can put the ouya instead
    Its more profitable then the wii u at this point

    And this isnt walmart, its sams club, completly different, its one of those warehouse syores then sells stuff in bulk like costco

    A price I could pay for a WiiU. Luckily over here WiiUs are even more absurdly priced.

    And.. it's gone. Besides it's in US so I couldn't get it anyway.

    I'd like to have an additional Wii U to play Bayonetta 2 somewhere else (when it's out).

    That sucks. It's better than the people who get a game system box for christmas, only to realize that either (a) the box is empty or (b) the contents were replaced with Lego-brand versions.

    I do live in a small town but our local Walmart never keeps Wii/Wii U/3DS at all. They stopped selling PS Vita and barely have any PS3 stuff in stock.
