TVGB: Nintendo’s own Reggie Fils-Aime spoke a tiny bit about the price of the company’s new system, Wii U, at GT.TV just after their E3 press conference.
Well how else was he gonna answer that question? "No, it'll be dead expensive"
LMAO! +bubbles for my first laugh of the day.
i think it will be at least $300. theres no way theyre going to price it the same as the 3ds. and somehow i really doubt these fancy new controllers are going to be the standard 50 bucks a pop. i wouldnt be surprised if theyre 100 dollars.
Yea, considering its Nintendo. They aren't known for releasing overly expensive consoles. It'll be a day one buy for me. Zelda and Metroid in HD? Sign me up.
The 3DS costs $120 to make and they are selling it for $249.99. All game companies do that stuff, look at Microsoft's Hard Drives or the PS2's memory cards.
there will be a price drop.
"They aren't known for releasing overly expensive consoles." Did no one pay attention to this quote? They are a company they are out to make money.
Well shit, the console will be inexpensive but the controller won't be.
Absolutely my first thought. I can see that it would be compatible with older forms of controllers but should you wish to buy another controller like the one shown i could see them retailing at like £70/$99 each.
Yea man no doubt. Think of the type of wireless infrastructure they we need to be able to wirelessly transfer a 1080p image to a 6inch controller screen.
I love the console its gonna have a sub 249 price point i think lol reggie went off on sony and microsoft copying them in the xplay interview. the controller is just a dsi with a nice big screen shouldnt cost too much to make now. 70$ for 1 is my guess.
love...Really? this thing looks way too gimmicky. Remember the nintendo that used the periscope made in the late 90's. It was a burden, I think this will be a big dent for nintendo unless they bust out some sort of power pad 3d immersion device. pick up a magazine, an ugly white one at that...add about a pound of weight to it and buttons in really odd positions. this thing is a doctors dream, carpal tunnel anyone? I bought into the wii gimmick but this thing, no way. Prior to the expo I was expecting a return to the Super Nintendo days of great games, just dont see it with this big clumbsy thing. this tablet controller creature is bigger than most kids who they are going to market it for are.
i felt the same about move and kinect the ipad and look how its gonna work out the name of the game is herding sheep this will do just that and bring back the hardcore because there is no longer that barrier that xbox ps3 has it and wii doesnt. nintendo will do just fine they have my dollar. for this and the 3DS.
The controller looks expensive though.
$249-399 for the console $49-59 for the controllers
umm dont mean to burst a bubble but why make a tab for wii u when its not a console. its a Controller with a screen.
yeah i think the price for this thing is gonna be around 150. because im not spending more on a accessory then i bought the console for.
