Bargain Alert: Big W Offering Big Discounts on Wii U Premium and Basic Bundles

Big W currently have a sale on Wii U console packs, both in the Premium and Basic flavours. The Premium pack, normally with a listed price of $428, has been reduced to just $348; that is, the RRP of the Basic pack. This represents a saving of $80; enough to buy one or two new games at the same time.

Furthermore, the Basic pack lists a price of $278, down from $348. An extra $70 in your pocket is also pretty attractive.

As these items are listed under “this week’s promotions”, we can only expect to see this offer last for a few days. Furthermore, the offer is only valid when buying online.

The Premium pack includes a black console with 32GB internal storage, a charging dock for the gamepad and, of course, Nintendo Land. The Basic pack has only 8GB of storage and cuts out the dock and Nintendo Land altogether.

So, who’s picking up a shiny new Wii U in preparation for the upcoming Nintendo releases?

Thanks to Justin for the tip!

Oh wow!

    The plan was to wait until next year to pick one up, but since Nintendo has been pretty firm about not reducing the price and I don’t remember the Wii getting much in the way of hardware upgrades (unlike the DS), I’m seriously considering it.

    If they had a better account system like the PSN one I would have bought a second for the bedroom ūüėõ It’s pretty convenient having the PS3s set up like that… (especially if both my partner and I want to play the PS3 at the same time) But oh well, hopefully soon…

    I feel the need to point out that they had this deal on since… roughly… 2 weeks ago.

    Well, at least that’s when I noticed it.
