Console will be 'competitively priced' with PS3 and Xbox 360
I'll believe it when I see it
I think the console might be with the controller being that bit more expensive. The thing is though it may be competitively priced but what is making me put some money down for this console especially with the third party games being ports and I already have a good console. To much unknown to say about it but my first reaction is a little disappointed.
That means Wii U better launch at $299 no more than $349 since by then the 360 and PS3 will be ready for another price drop. If it is competitive then I'm sure we will be paying $100 per controller, which sucks, thankfully you can still use all of your Wii peripherals. With the 3DS being $249 I can't see Nintendo charging less than $400 for this, but now the PSV is coming out and at $249 and $299 I expect the 3DS to drop to $199 and soon (holiday season maybe or spring 2012, which would cause Wii U to get bumped down to holiday season 2012).
You guys should have read til the end. Translation... Wii U will cost $400! They may be able to drop it down to $300 by it's launch.
this strengthens my belief that this system is more aimed at families who own wiis and now have older children that want to play less casual games but they have grown with the wii brand so could stay with it. Also as iamsuperman said there was nothing that would tempt me to choose this over my ps3.
299 or 349 is my guess, little internal storage, nothing exotic inside, using a dvd drive etc. Only real question is the controller
fyi it's not using DVDs
gunna be 300
Im calling 299.99 USD. I feel anything more would make the console seem less Nintendo.
Yes because 250 for gamecube with a stick , and 3DS ,.. was really cheap ,.. I mean, I love nitty,.. because of their games,.. but boy o boy I always feel ripped off on a hardware side(component costs - price),.. Lets hope it is truth, because they really might have a problem in family market if they do the shit Sony does,..( first batch of ps3 they sold were young single adult male gamers (25-35), with enough disposable income)
299. maybe but if its that that will be a core bundle without a controller controller has to cost at least 80$
Yeah im calling 300$ for the actual console. The price of the controller is gonna be from 60$ to 80$.
People here should be guessing the next world cup champions. Their ability to say things while knowing nothing is awesome.
i don't like this whole talk of "value for money". the last time i heard something like that, the PS3 came with a $600 price tag on it...
anything more than $350 will cause trouble for nintendo
