Wii U Best Buy Deal

If you’re looking for a last minute excuse to buy someone on your shopping list a Wii U, here’s a good one. Best Buy is offering a free gift card and game with the purchase of any Wii U system or bundle. The only two games you can choose from are ZombiU or Just Dance 2014, but you still can get another game or two with the bundles offered.

Even after doing a bit of snooping I can’t find the expiration date for this offer, but a list of the “details” can be found here. The main thing it discusses are the terms of the gift card.

        The real deal was when toys r us offered the skylanders Wiiu bundle for $220.

        • Fred

          I agree. I already had a Wii u but when I saw that deal I broke down and bought one for my sister’s family for Christmas. That was just too good to pass up

  • Laud

    Yaaay more deals :3

  • Adam Fox

    Heh, i have an 8GB Wii U that my parents got me for Christmas last year that cost $300…then they bought Mario Bros U for $60 and I paid $20 to download Super Luigi U…..that’s $380 plus tax on what you get now for $300….plus now you get the black 32GB model, $25 gift card and ZombiU (or Just Dance)

    • Skelterz

      you my friend got done.

      • Adam Fox

        actually my PARENTS got done….I paid $20 for Super Luigi U….thats it….and USB drives are pretty cheap and so are external hard drives…..also, the White Wii U was discontinued less than a year on the shelf, could become a collectors item like the colored N64 systems….who knows….but is it any different than people that bought the $500 20GB PS3 with no wifi? Or what about the fools paying MORE than retail for a Xbox One or PS4 now? At least my system came from the store, retail price….yea, I tried to tell them to get the 32GB model but they decided to save a few bucks and put that toward a game

        • Skelterz

          The amount of effort you put in that reply wow…I woulden’t be surprised if that became a collectors item Homo.

    • D.M.T

      That’s what happens when people buy any console at launch but that’s ok.

      I got a PS4 last week from Amazon. I never played a PS3 and figured I might aw well get the PS4. After having it for a week I sold it for PS3 and cash. There is zero reason to own that thing right now at that price. At least with the Wii U you got to finally play Nintendo games in HD which graphically was a huge jump from the previous gen. The PS4 and Xbone games out right now are just slightly better graphically. Yes it’s noticeable but not $400 noticeable. Plus I needed a 3d blu ray player and the PS4 surprise surprise does not support that. Maybe late next year when it comes down in price and there is 3d playback and compelling bundles I might jump back in. The controller is a vast improvement and Sony does come out with some great games (so I have read).
      Point is, of all the ‘next gen’ consoles, it made more sense to get a Wii U because of the jump to HD, the backwards compatibility, and gamepad. Paying more is the pitfall of being a new adopter.

      • DragonSilths

        People should stop saying “Next Gen” consoles. There are no more Next Gens. Not for another 6-7 years. Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One are all Current Gen. Though I do agree with what you say on PS4. Although the same can be said about the Xbox One.

  • D.M.T

    Yesterday i bought Pikmin 3 and that game is weird yet very fun. And the graphics are better than I expected.

    • Adam Fox

      I think Nintendo did it right with the Wii U…sure its not as powerful as the Xbox One or the PS4….but its got some awesome exclusives. I don’t care to use my game system as a DVR….and with these 500GB drives on modern systems, it won’t last as long b/c the games are freaking HUGE! NES Remix is 375MB or something and its pretty fun (and gets challenging)…its a fun game that can provide hours worth of initial fun plus even replay value trying to get all 3 stars or 3 rainbow stars. When the Wii U is discontinued in 2020 or whatever year it becomes discontinued and Nintendo pulls the servers offline, it will still be a fun offline console. It’s not like with PS and Xbox games where people buy them for the online multi-player….

    • tom

      The best part of the game is bingo battle! Grab a friend and check it out!

        • tom

          OMG if bingo battle and coop treasure hunt had competitive online play this game would have easily moved 1 million copies by now!

    • [000]

      What is this shameless promotion doing here?

    • jjbredesen

      Um…. wtf is this doing here, go post it on a porn site or something, We are not inetrested in your muscles.

      • Dominicruz

        you made me laugh lol

    • Logic

      No offense, but this is one of the worst videos I’ve ever seen…ever

      • Dominicruz

        I know and I respect your opinion but This is my first video and I think I did pretty good to be the first.

        • darkcreap

          Yes, that is very fun, but this is spam here. No one cares about your youtube channel. This is the comment section of a WiiU blog, so please, do not spam people promoting your channel.

  • Dominicruz

    I think nintendo is losing by selling wii u

    • NintenScience

      No one cares.

      • Dominicruz

        I know

  • Prid

    Attention, Rayman Legends for only £15/$25 at zavvi (Europe only):

  • Cahone


    • Pikachief

      Like every console ever made and ever will be made.

      • Cahone

        sad excuse for getting screwed.

        • Phillip Fauble

          Over a year after release right around the holidays. I feel like calling early adopters screwed based on that is ridiculous. I got my Win U launch day and am very happy with it regardless of how much I paid. The price difference makes sense… since it has to compete against more powerful, more expensive consoles.

          • DragonSilths

            They aren’t THAT much more powerful.

          • Cahone

            ~10x more powerful + 100x more games.

          • DragonSilths

            Try 33% more powerful.

  • GuardiansFan

    the deal in canada is better on boxing day (December 26). The Mario bundle is 249.99 at various stores.

  • ZeldaLove

    Nintendo never fails at quality games. Especially at non violent games like Super Mario 3D World that ROCKS like no other game seen before. GTAV is all about hardcore gore and violence. There is no xbox one or ps4 game that can top Super Mario 3D World. All game ratings on the xboxone and ps4 currently suck!!. Check the ratings on metacritic dot com.

    • readypembroke

      Even New Super Mario Bros. U toppled all of the PS4 and One launch games.

  • Does anyone know if that deal is still good at Best Buy???
