CNN Money estimates that the Wii U Basic set costs Nintendo $228.00 to manufacture (Gamepad $79.25). What do you guys think, is that estimate about right?

Is this parts only? No time for me to watch the vid. There's more to manufacturing something this complicated than parts only. But considering they don't make a profit on the thing it seems about right.

Yeah, the video just estimated the parts only. So of course there's additional R&D costs, packaging, shipping, marketing, along with selling it to retailers so they have enough room to make a profit at $299.
