You KNOW Wii U is in trouble when...

their limited edition zelda bundles are STILL available on gamestop.com. Its been out for like 2 months almost

Gamestop usually sells out of every bundle fast, its like nobody even wants a wii u. I would definitely get one if its like $200 which is where it should be. Thats the only way the wii u can be saved.

That's cute, did you know that the PS3 GTA V bundle which has been out about the same time if not longer also isn't sold out.

C'mon man! If your gonna troll gotta pick some better options! Wii-U is such an easy punching bag, there are literally hundreds of easy things to pick on.

Specs, sales, game sales, third party support (lack off), VGX announcemnt, say something about them being out of touch! Just off the top of my head....bah I'm sure someone will bite though!:P

maybe people were avoiding that horrible download voucher, I got a Wii U but I avoided that bundle knowing the game took up most the HDD and would take forever to download, plus I despise Nintendo's horrible right's retention for digital titles, I got the New Super Mario/Luigi U bundle instead since it had the game on disc, then just bought Wind Waker separately

Still, you gotta admit trolling a console based on a listing is scraping off the bottom of the barrel.

PS3 is selling better than the wii u and its an 8 year old console:-\

It probably is doomed. The thing is going to end up like the Vita most likely.

Ew, download voucher.

#13 Edited by cain006 (8625 posts) -

I don't want the wind waker bundle because I think the gamepad looks ugly and like the other people said, download voucher.

Is using a 7 year old, last gen platform that just had its successor released, to defend the Wii U, really something to be celebrated?

I KNOW Wii U is in trouble when...

* the controller looks too feminine

* miiverse is laughable compare to Playstation Home

#16 Posted by foxhound_fox (88776 posts) -

Why would they sell out? Isn't the whole point of good business to provide enough product for everyone who wants it?

A lot of times the word limited edition is used loosely

#19 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (25615 posts) -

Dude I saw Resident Evil and Final Fantasy XIII 360 bundles a year after they were out before.

Plus that Zelda Bundle is a Holiday Bundle so I'd expect to see it in stores till Spring.

Been a while you came here,which was a good thing

Noone has time for another last gen console with no games or features compared to the last gen consoles.

An old console outselling a new one isn't rare. Its pretty much what happens most of the time, actually.

That game would take up less than 0.1% of the available storage on my Wii U.

same also it better to get mario bundle u get 2 full games for the price of one and both games are on one disk.

No one cares about a HD remake of a 10 year old game on a console that has barely a tiny handful of decent titles.

But that's a system bundle of a system that's been out for 7 years or so. And the bundle game in it is being sold on more than one system. And it isn't called a limited edition bundle. So if youre going to troll a troll you need to actually try or have some material worth saying.

How's that? You got a 20TB external HDD? If so that's kind of overkill.

#33 Edited by Ribnarak (2298 posts) -

149.99 and ill buy it. im serious (with a remake of zelda included) thats a fair price for a last gen console. also increase the HD to atleast 80gb

Zelda WWHD is like 500mbIf he has a 32gb sku,that is about 1.5% space

well that makes more sense, that ain't nearly as bad as I thought, I thought someone said it took up like 17-18GB and that's why I thought it took so darn long to download, that's why I mainly didn't bother... come to think of it I shoulda thought twice about that considering there's no way a GC game remade should take up that much space, heck I might have bought one earlier

happy accident then, I ended up picking up the New Super Mario/Luigi U bundle and I'm enjoying what I've been playing of that game, I might not have picked it up period if I'd of just gotten the Wind Waker bundle, but I got it on disc anyways which I prefer and got to enjoy NSMBU

TC is a lem i believe..... i know hard to believe they're doing something besides attack cows but yeah.. you're barking at the wrong tree.

The Wii U pretty much has no chance against the Xbox One and PS4. In all honesty, the only thing Nintendo can do is keep lowering the price, keep on releasing exclusives and hope for the best.

When Knack is outselling a Mario platformer that's when you know your system has problems because he is their flagship series.

Maybe the Zelda bundles would sell faster in a Spencer's gifts along with all the other retro gag gifts they sell
