    It's the discontinued basic one, but that shouldn't matter at this price. Sites say it starts this Friday, August 2nd.

    Nice find! I actually just picked up a deluxe bundle for this price (lightly used) today on eBay.

    If you want to do the same thing, be sure to search for "wiiu" instead of "wii u". The difference to your wallet is about $100.

    That's a good deal, but I don't prefer used electronics. Also, this might be in the US too if you can still find them. I think retailers have already shipped them back.

    Last I heard it was only Gamestop that shipped back the white Wii U basic console.

    I actually picked one up today because of this. :) They were sold out at best buy, but future shop price matched for me.

    Unfortunately the wii u game pad isn't charging, I may have to return it. I tried opening the back and taking the battery out, and putting it back in.. no luck.

    I just called my local walmart and they said they were recalled and had none left. Darn, I wanted one at this price.

    Deep in GBAtemp addiction
    Meanwhile, the cheapest I can find one here is equivalent of about $400 (yes, basic model)
    anyone know what shipping from Canada to Costa Rica would cost? :P

    Got flashbacks of ASDA reducing the price to 150 quid and immediately discontinuing it the moment they were out of stock.
