Target Electronics guy here, our stock of Wii U got destroyed. They sold out nearly as quick as the Xone despite us having way more stock.

Still, nobody wants the Animal Crossing Amiibo. Our restock of Splatoon Amiibo went pretty quick though.

I'd have bought that Wii U bundle if I didn't already own one. I'd rather have Mario over Smash Bros but still that's a pretty good looking bundle.

The smart shoppers are waiting to buy their PS4s and Xbones with the Cyber Monday coupon.
That's what I'm doing. Either it'll give me 15% off the Uncharted PS4 plus another 15% with my registry coupon, or I won't be buying one.

Despite my hatred toward Nintendo for the insanely high ehop prices; the Wii U bundle for $250 is an amazing deal and should be congratulated for its amazing price.

You can't get the Wii U bundle on Amazon so it makes since. And it's a good bundle to boot.
It's also true that, while not available on Amazon.com (for reasons I...can't get, since the 3DS XL + 3D Land bundle is available on Amazon.com), the bundle is available everywhere else (both online and retail), so this isn't such a case of major sales concentrated in a very small pool of retailers. Still, this won't result in Wii U having a massive Holidays :p

I've always wanted a Wii U but I don't want to spend more than 200 including the game. I'm amazed that Nintendo still hasn't managed to put out a bundle I want but congrats to them on this bundle if its selling that well.

i stopped by target in FL to see the black friday madness and initially i was like this isn't as crazy as i expected but then went to electronics section and i noticed a huge line and was like man, people are crazy!!!! i would rather just try my luck online shopping or pay a few extra dollars if need be but i ain't standing in a mile long line lol for a few hours. they were mostly for apple phone and ipads i believe

it's a pretty great bundle. $250 for Splatoon. it even comes with a console and another game ;p
meh not a great bundle for me. i would rather pay around 150 to 180 for a standalone wiiu

My Nephew wants a Wii U but his Dad is nervous about investing in one since NX is right around the corner.
No reason to wait now. There's plenty of good games for it. If nothing else he could just sell the thing when the NX comes out.

Along with the Lego/Skylanders/Infinity games there's awesome exclusives like Lego City Undercover, Mario, and Pikmin 3 that your nephew would probably love.

I sent them the link to the Target bundle. Not my decision. /shrugs

Wait, there's more Wii U stock than X1? Am I reading that right?

They restricted PS4 and Xbox One to in-store only. Of course the Wii U is ahead of them online.
If the Xone had the same stock as WiiU it would have done much better, but it's a discontinued bundle. The reason it is so cheap is because they're liquidating stock, they didn't have the supply to put it onlone.
