    Nintendo dropping Wii U price by $50 on Septmeber 21st, ahead of PS4 and Xbox One lau

    Well, the Wii U's time as the only "next-gen" console on the market is about to come to an end. Its brief reign was marred by software bugs, missing features and a questionable price. Now with the PS4 and Xbox One preparing to launch an all out assault on the gaming market, Nintendo is trying to make its console-plus-tablet platform a little more alluring by dropping the price. Starting on September 20th, the Wii U will cost $50 less, making the deluxe bundle with 32GB of storage a slightly easier to digest $300. At $100 less than the PlayStation 4 and $200 less than the Xbox One, it's not a bad option for those with smaller gaming budgets -- especially if those people happen to have kids or like to host parties. Of course, its library of available games still leaves something to be desired and its hardware is nowhere near as capable as it's competitors, so it's not exactly a clear winner. If you were considering buying a Wii U, obviously your best bet now is to wait until at least September 20th for the new price to go into effect.
