U know what this means! Wii U has a great price just for U! Around this holiday season, many of Us are going to fall in love with Wii U and it's beaUtiful price!

I reckon that they could keep it this low because it is rumored to have only 8GB of internal storage memory.

good thing, its not 600.00 as ps3 launch. wii was 250
wii-U should been 249.99 ... 300.00 not bad either.

If Sony and MS didn't take a loss every generation console gaming would be half dead.

Everyone wants a gtx 660 - 680 level gpu in ps4 and 720 Even developers are pushing them!
But everyone wants a $299 or lower price tag.
When $500 - $600 for that would be a steal!

PC hardware is moving so damn fast. Faster than before.(Kepler is the current gpu today)

If ps4 and 720 are way more powerful while wiiU and wiiU is $299?

Then Sony and MS will have to price it higher or take a hell of a loss again. And I am sure they don't want to take that chance every generation.

If it's the true price, then I'll pick one up just as soon as I see some Zelda, Smash Bros., Zombie U, and a few more interesting exclusive games.

Yea it seem's like an okay price but still not sure if this is true since Walmart listed it $350 but hoping $299 will be the price and if it is, i won't hesitate to pick one up.

and in all reality no way Best Buy has a Lower Price than Wal-Mart... as far as I know Nintendo did not say what the price or release date would be.

I hope that this is a real price

how the hell would they keep it that low?

wiggles2381d ago

I agree, it's great wishful thinking but there is no way it will come out at that price point. If it does, I may be worried about the quality of the system. It seems to good to be true.

xtremexx2381d ago

either its $299 for the console and 1 tablet, then 1 more tablet is $500 XD

Someone mentioned a possibility of 8gigs of space.
