GameStop will no longer be selling the 8GB Wii U model it has been reported.
A “reliable” source tells Kotaku GameStop chains all around the country have received the following message:
“Nintendo Wii U Basic Recall – Two Week Preparation On Tuesday, 6/18, all stories will need to return all new/unopened Wii U Basic (020359). .. Stores that have 10 or more in stock will receive shipping cartons from the [distribution center]. .. All other stores will need to save shipping cartons for this recall.”
It’s unknown exactly why this model is being recalled. The Wii U comes in two models, the 8GB and the 32GB. The recall of the former model would mean only the more expensive 32GB model would be on the market.
Any updates we come across will be reported.
