E3 Day One: Wii U finally starts to purr, but price still needs to be tackled

Craig Shields makes his voice heard on the first official day of E3. This time he looks at how Nintendo have addressed the Wii U during this morning’s Nintendo Direct.

Right now I feel a little bit like Nintendo; alone, confused and looking for acceptance.

You see after this morning’s Nintendo Direct I fully expected to see fans rejoice at what Nintendo had to say. Seeing articles on fast moving sites saying that the Wii U was “saved” “reborn” or “making a comeback”. Shocked is too strong a word to use but I raised an eyebrow at what was actually unfolding before my eyes.

I love Nintendo and I want them to succeed, but at this point I think I would rather see them become a software company. I want to play Mario and all the other games, I just dont want to on their console.

Its hard to imagine playing Nintendo games on another console, but I would get over that quick if it happened. Of course they would stay with the handhelds.

Keep waiting for that, sunshine.

Yeah it does need a price cut now.

Wii U Premium: 339€
PS4: 399€ (I doubt that will be final price where I live but still can't be much more than that)

I will eventually buy both but Wii U's price doesn't look so pretty right now.

At minimum it should be $100 cheaper than the PS4. I think it would do well around $250-$280.

This is just speculations but would'nt it be good to see Samsung build their own gaming console?!

Would love to see how the Koreans build their own gaming machine.

Think Nintendo really needs to review/re-adjust the price of Wii U as compared to new PS4 and XBox ONE.
