Leaked memo from retailer tells employees to send all new units back next week, while stores should expect more Wii U deluxe units soon.
Retail giant Best Buy is getting rid of its 8GB Wii U stock, according to an internal company flier sent to Kotaku.
The memo states that "stores should pull all new in-box units and send them back" on June 10-11. "Store should expect to see more Wii U deluxe units arriving in the coming weeks."
The 8GB Wii U retails for $300, while the 32GB Deluxe model sells for $350.
Earlier this week, a similar memo from GameStop suggested the 8GB Wii U model was being discontinued at the retailer. Nintendo labeled the report a "misperception" of the issue, saying stock was only being "rebalanced."
Gamers can expect to learn more about Nintendo's Wii U plans this week at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo, when the company holds a Nintendo Direct on June 11 at 7 a.m. PDT.
Nintendo had sold 3.45 million Wii U units globally as of March 31, 2013, with fewer than 400,000 sold in the first three months of 2013.
