    Do they realize that it's not a Wii U ? That's a Family Wii

    That's hilarious. It clearly says Wii U on the game pad and Wii on the console

    Is...that a...Black Wii? With a Wii U gamepad? They really had to make their own idiotic image, when they could have just used a stock Wii U picture?

    The one who designed that can't possibly have seen a Wii U.
    He just took a couple of images from Google Images, put them together, and slapped a Pikmin 3 logo on the gamepad.
    Otherwise how could that have happened?
    Nonetheless it's a pretty funny screwup, and I'm betting most people who have not seen a Wii U will not even realize the mistake.

    Just serves to confirm false impressions too many people seem to have. It's a $300 Wii accessory with a screen.

    That's weird. Usually retailers are more... on target.

    When even a major retailer is confused about your console, maybe it's time to refine the message.

    I'm not too surprised. My brother is knowledgeable about games and at first even he thought the Wii U was a controller add on to the Wii.

    Nintendo really fucked up in the 2011 E3 reveal of the Wii U.

    oopsydasies. The Father's Day flyer that came out here used a proper image. But that's a good price for a gift card. I wonder if Canada locations have that deal as well.

    Edit: Nope, but the Wii U in our flyer is correct.

    So idk how they screwed this up.

    @OP: yeah...that's ONE way to get rid of that huge pile of family wiis that nobody wanted. They need to have a thorough plan to discourage angry customers from returning, though. :P

    Sorry chavosaur, I got the image from NeoGaf so I don't know which Target it's from exactly. I'll have a look around when I get back though.

    That's what Nintendo gets for focusing too much on the controller during marketing. Remember E3 2012? They barely even shown the console. No one cares about the controller unless the system it's controlling is decent.

    They should have also dropped the Wii branding. "Wii" has a bad connotation in gaming community. Wasn't the code name "Nintendo Stream"? They should have just called it that.
