Best Buy is the next big retailer sending back its Wii U Basic units to Nintendo. Nintendo World Report
has an image pulled from Best Buy's internal system stating "stores should pull all new in box [Wii U Basic] units and send them back" starting tomorrow. It also notes that stores should see more Wii U Deluxe units arrive in the coming weeks.
GameStop is also currently going through a similar send-back
of the Wii U Basic.
Nintendo previously stated any notion of a recall of the Wii U Basic is a "misperception" and that the company is "working with its retail partners to simply rebalance the stock of the White 8GB and the Black 32GB Wii U models in the market." The House of Mario claims consumers will be able to continue purchasing both models. The Wii U has struggled since launch
, with the regular Wii outperforming its progeny.
