Asda to no longer Stock Wii U in store

In what must come as a blow to Nintendo, today Asda has stated it will no longer stock the Wii U console in any of its 555 stores.

In a statement to CVG, Asda commented on their decision, ‘Asda continues to offer customers a selection of Wii U games and accessories through Asda Direct, but these ranges are currently not on offer in Asda shops’. Nintendo has not commented directly on this matter. The choice today by Asda may be put down to its recent slashing of the consoles price and slow sales.

The Wii U and its games are to be still available online through Asda, though on their site they currently only have a limited range of Nintendo products, the Wii U Premium console is one of the products amongst those not available. It is also said certain games will still be available in stores. Not all bad news for Nintendo fans though, currently the Wii U basic is available online from Asda at £150 for those planning on getting one.

Anyone disappointed by this news?

One Response to Asda to no longer Stock Wii U in store

    I spoke to someone in Asda about this (when I was buying Assassins creed 3 for £12) and I think its a bit too early to be pulling support.

    When we got ours I thought it was going to be a complete waste of money – we had the wii and it was hardly ever played with and we ended up trading it in for a 3DS

    Its really surprised us though – its a real return to the family friendly gaming that Nintendo are known for with a little bit extra. ZombiU for example is brilliant and just a bit different to all the other zombi games out there. As the summer holidays have hit being able to play on the small screen has ended several TV turn based arguments too.
