Maybe if you get lucky as s*** buying locally. You aren't going to find one online that isn't high priced. If you really want one, look for a decent used one. Just don't buy a system you haven't seen working with your own eyes first.
I...really don't understand why people decided to ask $600 for new Wii Us. I love the console so I'm alright with saying this--Retailers couldn't get the masses to buy the system bundled with games for $300 in America. What in the blazes makes these people think anyone wants a Wii U for twice as much?
Maybe several years from now, I can see Wii Us demanding that value. But the console isn't even "old." It's not worth $600. Not even for a big Wii U hardcore fan. Therefore do not buy a Wii U brand new for that much. You might as well set that money ablaze. Save your money, buy a $150 Wii U bundle at Gamestop or even ebay, and hold onto the other $400+ you saved...or whatever.
