Dick Smith in Australia got rid of all their Wii U stuff at 50% off a few months ago. URope seems to have had enough of Nintendo as well.

Also, if you didn't already know: OP=OP these days.

Wow. I would buy one at that price. Works out at about 80 which is the same price as a Wii Mini!

If this somehow equated to $100, I'd definitely get it for some Mario kart and smash bros fun no doubt.

Yep. Plus either a new power supply or a 220v-110v converter, the Wii U power brick (at least in NA?) is not universal like the PS4.

More than likely just a local deal of one particular store with in-store pickup only, MediaMarkt has them all the time for various products.

Seriously, though, getting it for less than the damn 3DS is a steal. Not sure how it would work out as far as future releases, though, thanks to region locking. Is it country specific or just by region?

Thanks for the replies! The way things are going for the Wii U in the UK we might start to see similar deals here soon.

It's not a country-wide offering.

It's a one day only deal (today) at one particular store (Hasselt). Limited quantities.

So google converter says that would be around $134.
I'd buy it if I was in Belgium. This is insta-buy with no thinking needed levels.

Is it just the disks that are region locked? Not online purchases? How do those work, by where it is or by where it was bought?

Also, shouldn't Nintendo be worrying about these pricecuts? If these $99 systems becomes a thing, how will they ever move their MSRP ones?

Amazing deal, but I still like the Skylanders bundles I got in Canada a couple of days ago.

White Wii U (black sucks), Nintendoland and Skylanders Swap Force with toys for 200 CAD, which is 150 euros after tax. Very happy with it, especially since it's dual voltage and I don't have to use my converter.

It's dead sales-wise here in Europe, though. We'll be seeing threads like this all year long without doubt.

I know with absolute certainty the North American one is not. Are ones from other regions universal, and just the NA one isn't? Because that's weird.

They're labelled 110v, but they are Universal.

Me, I'm waiting for $150 range probably, or until the games I have been waiting for come out (New Zelda, Metroid, X etc.).

Dick Smith wasn't generous enough. Wii U would need to be $100 Australian dollars before i even think of getting one considering i want it for 3 games (one of which isn't out yet)
