I hear games are always more expensive in Australia (DS and Wii games seem to be about twice the US cost), but most likely EB Games is just over-estimating the price because nobody's going to complain if they reduce the price later, but if they under-price, they'd be forced to sell it at that price or risk being sued for false advertising.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we all know “Down Under” gets bent over when it comes to prices for video games…

My question is why do these companies that have the Wii U already available for preorder, but don’t know the Suggested Retail Price yet, even put it up for preorder in the first place? I am not saying I disagree that this in fact could be just a “placeholder” but I just wonder why have it listed? Who is going to preorder this now anyway?

I'm a lucky gamer to be an American gamer. Europe, Japan, and Australia have to pay insane amounts of $ to get their games. Too bad it seems like a ton of gamers here also use Action Replays like crazy. I doubt it's that bad in Europe, etc.

What a freakin' joke. The Wii U seems so disapointing to me. No way would I ever pay more than $300 for this.

This article says hello.

As for my personal view on what the Wii U will cost, I highly doubt it will be anywhere above or close to the $400 mark. I'm personally expecting something slightly over the $300 mark, considering that the Wii U doesn't appear to have much completely new technology on it and the controller can't make the console jump more than +$100 in its base price.

I'll pay that much if I need to, doesn't seem too unreasonable for a system which will most likely be my main gaming system for several years.
I'll probably wait till I actually know when it's coming out before preordering it though.

I don't see why people outside of Australia are reacting so sudden on an Australian pre-order price tag. Has Nintendo even announced the price for any country? I'll make judgements when I hear the U.S. launch/pre-order price
