Walmart has set the price of the WIi U to $350 for its customers.
Really? I thought it would be $300, I wonder if the Wii U will actually be $350
Who knows... if it's higher, WalMart will just cancel any pre-orders. If it's lower, they'll send an e-mail about how you "save money and live better" :) I'm gonna pre-order 2 from amazon... 1 for me and 1 for eBay. I figure it will be in extremely short supply so hopefully they will be going for unheard of prices on eBay and the second system will pay for mine as well.
Well its same powerful than PS3, but its without Blu-Ray. Next gen PS4 and Xbox 720 is coming out next year and im sure with big grahpic lead. I just not buying Wii U, when i have already PS3 and Xbox 360. Wii U is only for those good, who dosent have any consoles, but wants to play some Wii games and some multiplatform games but nothing else. Facts!
wheres ur proof of next gen consoles coming out next year...dont just assume
Who said next gen is coming out next year? Their is only rumors about it being released in holiday 2013 but it could be 2014 or even 2015. Sony want's to have the PS3 live for 10 years so it can be 2016 as well.
lol you take all these rumors as fact.. 720 will have 16 cores & ps4 will be slightly more powerful is a another rumor.
"Well its same powerful than PS3, but its without Blu-Ray. " [Well it's as powerful as the PS3]* And no.
Your first mistake was thinking it was as powerful as 7 year old tech...
I think the krypppppptttonnnite has messed with your head. How about you fly around the earth and stop yourself from posting such a ridiculous comment?
$350 is pushing it....but I guess thats Nintendo's strategy. Get the hardcore fanboys to pay the premium..then drop the price to $299 just when the 720/PS4 launch at $399 or more.
$350 is what I expected if the PS3 and 360 don't have a price cut at E3. If they do get a price cut at E3 I expect Nintendo to announce the price sometime after E3 to be $300.
Yeah $350 plus tax and maybe some warranty that adds up. Nintendo really needs to show what the Wii U has to offer at E3 because so far it don't look so good.
I am pretty sure if it's at $350 and if Wii U releases before MS and Sony, they will sell with ease, and when the need comes to be competitive, they will cut prices, much like they cut 3DS' price in time to compete with VITA
@Alpha If the nextbox and PS4 come out next year, early adopters of the Wii U will get pissed if they cut the price a couple of months before they come out... But it does seem plausible that Nintendo may take the 3DS approach.
I can't wait to learn the specs @E3
Nintendo have no confirmed price for the Wii U
Did you even read? Walmart always has been priced things before confrimed things and always were right. 2006 they said price is 250, 6 month later Nintendo confirmed it too. I seen manay stuff in Walmart before and always were right.
Yeah coming from the guy who believes every rumor around...
I still expect a $300 price tag.
yeah, 300 would be perfect but 350 would still be fair considering what they are promising.
hopefully it will come bundled with a game, then it's perfectly resonable
well considering the wii did, even though it was only wii sports for most of the time and now New super mario bros....I think it makes sense they will at least give something with it
Huh, I was really expecting $299... Give em 6 months (3DS).. Ahhh I kid Nintendo!, I love my 3DS! ^_^
well, this is hardly any confirmation at all, but this is the price im expecting. Maybe even $400 if the specs are even higher, but i doubt Nintendo would release a console with such a big price tag
I'm holding off on my decision until E3.Hopefully,Nintendo will launch it with some compelling software,only then this rather high cost would seem justified.
Watch Reggie bring out the "we had to water down specs to save costs" speech
I'm just trying to follow your statement of how Nintendo can water down the specs from their initial design. When developers that have received the latest devkits, say the newest iteration of the kit is more powerful than what they were expecting the final specs to be...
Also I am really wondering how much the Wii U controller/tablet will cost, it looks expensive.
I wouldn't put this past being a placeholder. I also wouldn't count out the idea that Nintendo has a couple of different SKU's. I believe the sweet spot price for the Wii U will be $299. A lot of people will be intrigued by a next generation Nintendo console launching a year or more before its competition.
I'm still hoping they'll throw in a wireless classic controller with the console ;-;
sorry thats to high for a nintendo console
yeah i was thinking more like $250 tops.
Hey guys, these are just place holder price for the wii u. Nintendo will never allowed the wii u price to be leak so early already. I say just wait until Nintendo themselves confirmed the price ok.
With that price point the console will be garbage, probably not any better than the current ones now, especially since it is estimated that the controller alone is worth about 100 dollars.
Who "estimated" it?
Launching at $350 makes the Wii U more expensive than the base PS3 and Xbox 360
Yes. After a lot of price cuts. But when they launched, those were really expensive, do you remember?
It's a new system... PS3 and 360 were released at 400+ dollars Bubble up if you agree...
Where's my prize? I've been saying 349.99 for moths now...
Like many, I will have to hold off until E3 before making a decision. 350 wouldn't be that big of a deal, but it will depend on final specs (how they stack up to PS3/360) and what exactly comes bundled with the system.
FAKE. Go to Walmart.com, there is no Wii U listing at all. WiiUDaily making crap up yet again...
Off Topic: A very wise man once told me never to buy electronics from Walmart. On Topic: $350 is perfectly reasonable, especially if you don't have to pay for online service.
I've been thinking 350 all along.
ALl of Nintendo's consoles have sold for 200-250 dollars at launch. Taken into account, if the NES sold for 200 US dollars in 1986, that is just shy of around $400 today. If this is the correct price of the wiiU, the wiiU is technically cheaper at launch than the NES launch prices in today's dollars.
Bought my GCN on launch for $199.99, and bought every launch game as well.I think I accidentally clicked disagree, I was lounging when I clicked so I will give a bubble to make up for it. Sorry about that.
And put it this way, if Nintendo originally priced the 3ds at $249, then there is no way they would price an entire console at the same price. $349 sounds about right. I do however hope it ends up being $300... but I still find $349 to be reasonable.
