hi there!
so i go on a vacation in london next week so i was going to buy it there. problem is, the retail price in the uk is about 100$ more than in the US, and since i don't live in the US, this sucks.
basically i want to know if any of you live near/in london and can tell me where i can get a wii u (bundles=best) there, i'll be happy if you let me know.
quick replies would be welcome since i don't have much time.
thank you! :p

There are technology shops like Curry's, they have some deals, there is Argos, Game, Cex (a second hand store, a good place to buy most things cheaper), they also sell them in supermarkets like Tesco, ASDA and maybe Sainsburys.

You convert dollars to pounds and the price won't be much different.
We use £ in the UK not $.

thanks dude. you helped a lot, although it still pretty expensive.
BUT, i could still order a console from ebay to the hotel, right? if not i'll just go to one of the stores and but there.
thanks!

You would have to ask the hotel's reception, if you have friends or family in London you can put their address on EBay, i don't know if any hotels accept delivery for their customers.

There is a good reason for increased price when compared to US... and it's called VAT.

Value Added Tax. The government gets a cut from ANYTHING sold in the UK, and iirc, VAT is 19% at the moment.

thanks, tough it's not very helpful. the prices on amazon are more expensive than retail. i'll probably just order it from ebay to the hotel. if anyone has any other suggestions, feel free!
also, i wonder, anyone else gonna buy this console?
