Dick Smith has 50% off everything Nintendo, Wii U Premium console for $214

Dick Smith is having a massive 50% off everything Nintendo sale that puts the Wii U Premium console at $214.

The half price sale includes consoles, games and accessories, as spotted by Vooks.

The sale applies to both stores and online, however the online store is barren. It's offering Pro Controllers for $35, the Disney Infinity Starter Pack and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for $45, New Super Mario Bros U for $35 and ZombiU for $30.

There's also a Wii Remote Plus for $15.

You'll have to search in-store for a cheap Wii U console and other games — but the clever Dicks haven't restocked Wii U consoles for a while and the ad disclaimer warns of "strictly limited stock".

Good luck!

    Anyone get anything?

    This pretty much means Dick Smith is no longer stocking Nintendo, even 3DS :(

    Is this a sign that the Nintendo/Australian retailer relationship might be starting to fall apart, and if it's true, it will limit competition to just Sony & Microsoft vs. PC, which it will look bad from the point of view of the ACCC, and I severely doubt that they'll be able stop Dick Smith from getting rid of all Nintendo products

    Edit: this is what Dick Smith's website has for Nintendo products (Wii, Wii U, 3DS & 2DS console hardware is nowhere to be found on the site, maybe discontinued being stocked online and whatever stock in their stores is final)

    The dse i occasionally go to only has about 10 games in total anyway (which is to cover all platforms). They don't seem interested in the gaming scene full stop. :P

    Their stock for Sony/Microsoft is barebones as it is anyway. There just isn't much point selling games when EB and JB demolish the competition.
  • CptAwesome 3134 XP 26/09/2013
    they should make a sale on Pokémon X and Y... make it less than $40 so we can all price match at JB or EB

    They won't even be selling them. They're getting out of the 3DS market before Pokemon is released.

    My store now has one tiny shelf for games. Less than 20 or so on display.

    They had a table at the front for the sale too. They were practically giving this stuff away.

    the dumbest move a company has ever made
  • Marge 24855 XP 26/09/2013
    Went in today but was told indirectly that they pretty much had no stock before the sale started anyways.

    E: bought Zombi U for $25 off the online shop. Free delivery as well. :) Any other games worth buying are sold out.

    ... Now I just need a Wii U.
  • MrMoo 6004 XP 26/09/2013
    I hope they honour my PS4 pre-order, cause if they don't, I will not be impressed if that happens

    pretty much. :P I've intended to get a Wii U for a while now but I know I wouldn't have much time to play it. I've been waiting for a very good deal to get one. Just wish I could have gotten NSMBU so I'd have something I'd be really motivated to play from the get go.
  • renagadez 85746 XP 29/09/2013
    All sold out for me. =[
  • chucky110 36002 XP 30/09/2013
    They might stock the bigger consoles, just not Wii U or 3DS. THey might have to honour them because they will have a lot of angry customers if they don't. Hence why you should stick to the big guys for consoles (EB and JB)

    The site only has black ops 2 and a gamepad stand. I can get black ops 2 at HN for that much anyway
