Have you been toying with the idea of buying a Wii U, but waiting for some sort of price drop? This might be the opportunity you've been waiting for. Dick Smith has just sent out an email to customers and its selling premium Wii U bundles, complete with NintendoLand for $214, that's 50% off.
Regardless of what you think about the Wii U itself, it's an absolutely incredible deal, and easily the cheapest Wii U in the country at the moment. The deal exists only as long as stocks last and, as Vooks noted, Dick Smith hasn't been restocking its games section for a while, so we recommend calling your local store ahead of time. It's also worth nothing that it's an in-store deal only.
The Wii U hasn't exactly been successful in Australia, or globally for that matter, but there has been a real glut of quality games released for the console over the past few months. Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101 — we're also close to the release of Wind Waker HD and Super Mario 3D World, so now might be as good a time as any to pick one up.
