Rumor: GameStop to Stop Selling the Wii U Basic Bundle

by nintendoiso on June 5, 2013

A new rumor about the Wii U has surfaced. A source has told Kotaku that GameStop will stop selling the Wii U 8gb basic bundle on June 18. All unsold Wii U basic bundles will be shipped back to distribution centers.

“Nintendo Wii U Basic Recall – Two Week Preparation On Tuesday, 6/18, all stories will need to return all new/unopened Wii U Basic (020359). .. Stores that have 10 or more in stock will receive shipping cartons from the [distribution center]. .. All other stores will need to save shipping cartons for this recall,” read the source.

If this turns out to be true, it could mean one of many things. Nintendo could be pulling all basic bundles from retailers in order to make room to cut the price of the 32gb bundle. It could also mean that the basic bundle is selling really poorly at GameStop and it is just GameStop who is pulling the bundle.
