Gamestop has confirmed that it will stop selling the Nintendo Wii U 8GB console. What does Nintendo have up its sleeve?
Nintendo, for its part, has said only that it does "not comment on our business practices with retailers." Obviously, plenty of questions remain. Chief among them: What's behind the recall?
One option is some sort of widespread defect, although that seems somewhat unlikely – usually big system flaws become a topic of conversation on forums and fodder for the tech blogs long before a company formally initiates a recall procedure. In fact, our bet is that GameStop is simply clearing the shelves for a new edition of the Nintendo Wii U console, which will likely be introduced this month at the E3 conference in Los Angeles.
