Wii U 32GB bundle returns to Black Friday price

Your amiibo companion system awaits

If you missed out on Wii U sales during the holiday season, your second chance has arrived via Rakuten’s eBay store page (aka the retailer formerly known as Buy.com).

The Japanese-owned retailer is carrying about 2,000 units of the Wii U 32GB Deluxe Bundle for $259.99 with free shipping. At the time of writing, about 850 870 units have sold.

This bundle was the same price during Black Friday and ended up being a particularly hot item, with thousands of units sold out within 15 minutes. The bundle’s lowest historic price from a reputable retailer was $10 cheaper at Target (which we wrote about back in mid-December).

From what we’ve seen, $259 will be the de facto Wii U deal price for the first half of 2015. Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see if Nintendo issues a price drop as the system heads into its third year of existence
