Wii U and 3DS Gaming Bargains

Recommended Posts

I've seen quite a lot of people posting about the inflated prices of games in some stores, so I thought I would create a dedicated bargains thread for Wii U games. I'll start everyone off with some genuinely great deals:

 

Assassins Creed 3 - £14.98 at Zavvi:

i really don't get all this drop the price nonsense. £199 for the premium console with a game is a bloody steal.

 

There are so many great bargains to be had with the Wii U at the moment it's ridiculous.

Until its the prices are the same everywhere across the board, the calls for a price drop are warranted. Cheaper at select places won't make nearly enough of a difference to sales. It needs to be that cheap everywhere for it to really start selling.

You realise that is, in effect, a price drop?

It's pay day on Friday and ZombiU at just 12.99 sounds very tempting! I've also gotta catch up on new releases, so if any of you guys see a good deal on Wonderful 101 or Rayman, let me know!

Does anyone know of the best/cheapest place online to get a Wii U at the moment? Ultra-mega-super-fortunately I have come into three separate sums of money this month, and a star of the month bonus from work, so instead of super-skint due to £400 overdrawn, I am now finding myself with enough money to purchase a Wii U, which I need for Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze.

 

I picked up Sonic Racing Transformed from Tesco, that £10 bargain that has been circulating online. Very lucky actually....I searched for it specifically in the gaming section, found very few Wii U games (LEGO City, Just Dance, Fifa and Pikmin) and they were all scattered about randomly. Then by coincidence it was sitting on its own, just the one copy on the bottom shelf of an aisle-end display. No price listed, so I checked with the guy and did a *clenched fish motion down* "Yes!" at his response.

 

Yeah. So where da bargain for da Premmo Console online?

You can get the Zelda WW edition from GAME for the same price as with Zavvi if you enter the code CLOUDSEPT13 or GAMEPAL. Probably better to order from GAME.

 

The Wii U premium on its own can also apparently be found for £198 in Costco stores, and £199 in Waitrose Food and Home stores. Could be region specific with those though.

Dang, 18th October. I need dat shit sooner.

 

Also, I didn't even know Waitrose did food and home stores until hearing about cheap Wii Us in them. Isn't a home version of Waitrose just John Lewis? Lulz.

 

I am trying to ascertain if Claire's mum gets discount at Tesco direct. Someone here works at Tesco but I cannot remember who it is....is it Josh?

 

Do you get a boxed version of Nintendo Land?

Unlikely that there will be staff discount for items that are already on promotion. No place I've ever worked has allowed you to do that.

It's not on promotion though, looks like it will be the best place I think. I'm getting an itchy trigger finger, so (having checked I think Tesco employees do get Direct discount), I just need to obtain the number and see if it spits it out as the names/etc won't match.

Correct, we do get discount on Tesco direct... so long as you order it on the account of whoever is the employee - I really don't think it would allow you to register the same discount card on more than one account - assuming they have registered their card for use online then that should be fine.

 

I definitely wouldn't advise trying to add the discount card to your own account though, the card could get withdrawn if the company suspects that it's being misused.
