Refurbished Wii U Deluxe Now Available For Cheap Via Nintendo Store

Nintendo of America online is offering Wii U Deluxe editions refurbished for $250.

Newly added to the Nintendo of America online store is refurbished Wii U Deluxe editions. They're also available at GameStop online, but the price is much cheaper going through the Nintendo site.

What you'll get inside the box

Some items are guaranteed to be within your Wii U deluxe refurbished box, and they include:

  • Black Wii U 32 GB Console
  • Black Wii U GamePad
  • Nintendo Land game disc.
  • Wii U AC adapter
  • Wii U GamePad AC adapter
  • High Speed HDMI Cable
  • Sensor Bar

Although these items are given through the Nintendo online store, you can also receive them if you wish to go through GameStop for discounts or bonus points. Keep in mind though, the Nintendo store gives the buyer a full-year warranty on the console, but mentions that the console may have cosmetic blemishes that won't affect the game-play.

Things to know before getting the Wii U Refurbished

The refurbished price is only $250, which is only a small price difference than getting the Wii U new for $299. If you feel that refurbished isn't the way you want to go, you won't be missing out on too many dollar savings. The refurbished console also won't be eligible to receive club Nintendo points.

    I have the feeling that even with a minor price drop for a refurb isn't going to get the reaction that Nintendo needs, let alone wants. The Wii gaming systems just don't get the fan base you see from XBox and PS.
    I think Nintendo should take a page from Apple's playbook and dominate the hand held market as their primary goal...and then when they get a really good console, roll that out as an extra form of profit. Between handheld releases and console release they can put out games to the big two consoles.
