    Asda stopping selling WiiUs*

    *In store

    First they start selling them cheaper (150 was tempting if it had games I want), now the stores stop selling them



    UK retail behemoth Asda has removed Wii U games and consoles from its supermarket shelves.

    The chain will continue to sell Wii U products online via its Asda Direct website, it told Eurogamer, but no longer through its stores.
    "Asda continues to offer customers a selection of Wii U games and accessories through Asda Direct, but these ranges are currently not on offer in Asda shops," a spokesperson said.
    Asda has yet to explain the reasoning for its decision, but its likely due to the ongoing sales struggle faced by the console in the UK - and worldwide.
    The supermarket was previously home to a killer 199 price-tag for the Wii U Premium bundle, and is still offering the Wii U Basic for 149 online. Was this just to clear stock, ahead of the system's removal from stores?
    The move ironically comes just as Nintendo finally starts releasing software for Wii U again. The brilliant Pikmin 3 launched in the UK last week alongside New Super Mario Bros. expandalone New Super Luigi U. The Wonderful 101 and Ubisoft-developed Rayman Legends both arrive in August, meanwhile.
    We've asked Asda for further information on the change, and whether the decision is a permanent one.

    yup ps4 costs 500$ if you want to play online and get 1 game...speaking of games, ps4 has none to make anyone want it. just killzone and knack

    xbox one has a horrible reputation right now and it will take them a while to prove themselves...plus the console will be 600$ with online and a 1 game...

    wiiU has many games at reduced prices since it been out a year and will get some great deals on the console itself this holiday. it will be much cheaper than the other so called "next gen" (still weaker than a PC you can buy today) consoles. and it will have games for everyone by Dec with wiiFitU.

    WiiU is the better buy.

    You're comparing apples to oranges here, Wii U is in the same group as Xbox 360 and PS3, which are arguably much better consoles. Xbox one and PS4 are the true next gen consoles.

    lol yea right...

    the ps4 cant even run games at 60 frames per second....the xbox one can do it but has to make compromises on the graphics. you can build a pc today for the same cost as a Ps4 today and be much more "next gen".

    i'm sorry but there is nothing "next gen" about the graphics on ps4 or xbox one.

    Well for one, the consoles aren't even out yet and two, the same can be said for the Wii U.

    exactly. graphics wont decide the winner.

    games and new experiences will.

    wiiU has the gamepad and soon wiifit to fill the active gamer needs and some great party games like "wiiU party" to get the family together.

    plus core experiences with games like zelda winwaker and donkey kong country tropical freeze.

    People will buy the PS4 and Xbox One for only the fact it's new. Current game library won't hinder that watsoever. This may just be me, but very seldom does my family get together to play a videogame. I see it as an "Ooh i'll buy this to get my family together!" that ends up just being you playing alone kind of thing.

    yes ps4 and xbox one will sell very well over the holidays... but what happens after christmas? what is there to make people keep going out and buy them?
    thats the problem wiiU has. its the problem the psvita has. and it will be a problem for ps4/xboxone as well.

    about family games... just becuase you dont have a family game night or video games when entertaining friends. doesn't mean nobody does. party and dance games sell well for a reason.
