Nintendo has dropped the price of its Deluxe Wii U system to $299, which is a $50 price drop. The model cost $350 earlier and it seems Nintendo seems to be eager to revive the system’s sales. The basic Wii U model is still at $299, which certainly raises a question on Nintendo’s strategy.

A Wii U bundle containing The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will be released for $299. The Deluxe model comes with 32GB of flash memory along with NintendoLand.
