Got an email, company-wide all WiiU basic editions are being recalled.

Finally Nintendo gets it that no one wanted that sku.

Well, for $50 you get a lot more with the deluxe. Nintendo Land, bigger hard drive and the digital deluxe program.

If it is an actual decent bundle at a decent price, I could probably see myself getting one sometime this year.

$250 for a Deluxe with Mario Kart U for the holidays please.
They'll wait until MS and Sony drop their prices to figure that out, but I wouldn't say it's impossible. The Yen is pretty weak, so Nintendo might be able to afford a bigger cut than expected.

So what's the idea behind actually recalling them instead of not shipping anymore out to the stores or having an official price drop?

I'd be surprised if they didn't announce some competitively priced bundles at E3 and then more leading into the holidays. It seems to have worked for the 3DS anyway so why not repeat it here?

Replacing them entirely, getting them off shelves ahead of an announcement to avoid confusion at retailers/with consumers? Systems go back to Nintendo for repurposing as a new SKU.

I never understood why people thought this was de "bad" SKU.

I mean, unless you have interest in NintendoLand this is the one you go after since you will likely need to buy a hard drive regardless of wich SKU you get... and the extra stuff on the premium pack are worthless plastic stands. The only interesting thing besides NintendoLand is the premium service imo.

Deluxe price drop to $300, and Mario 3D bundle for the Holiday I expect.
I'd bite. But only if the game was bundled in at that $300 price point.

Because who are we kidding; 32gb should be the absolute minimum, standard. It's a joke to even refer to it as 'deluxe'.

$199 or bust. That is when I will get one, of course X or something would have to be out as well.
