Over here in the UK stores can set their own price for the Wii U and 3DS. Today both Argos and Amazon have set a new, super low price for the Wii U Premium Pack of just £179.99. This is the same price as the original Wii at launch. The deal covers just the original Wii U Premium pack, with the newer bundles such as the New Super Mario & Luigi bundle, Zelda Wind Waker and Lego City Undercover not included.
Perhaps the original bundle is being dropped with both shops are clearing out stock to focus on the new? Either way if your in the UK and without a Wii U this is a fantastic price!
