Amazon UK Drops Wii U Price £50

In the wake of the Wii U price dropping 100 euros at GameStop Italy earlier this week, Amazon UK is following suit with a similar drop of fifty pounds. The Wii U Basic can now be had for £199.00, while the Premium has dropped to £249.00. Before you think about importing, this still makes the price of the console higher than it costs in America thanks to an awful conversion rate, but it remains a significant price cut for the system across the pond.

No word yet if this is a permanent reduction or if the U.S. will see similar price drops, but it certainly seems like the price drop in Europe is soon to be universal.
