I'm look forward to big N's E3 Show to find out the what the OS. will offer. Looking @ 2006 we got a remote that could point N click w/t are TV's use the internet for Online Gaming Channels, News, Weather, "voting", Browser,& Voice chat using Avatars.
I would like Nintendo to continue with the promise that Wii's OS system has, tided around a communality "Channel" (Wiispeak+) For U have already coined the word, friends list. Because that is where it's @ for Me, that's the Nexxt facebook, Nintendo$
-As for the system, alone would be $259.00, what the remotes going to offer is what the ? is. WOO
We live in exciting times.

I could see anywhere from $300 to $400. It seems to make sense, because of what we know so far.

The console will probably cost about $150 or $200 and the controller will probably be the least at $75.

The Wii U was announced at E3 to much confusion. "Is it a new console?" "Is it a Wii peripheral?" "What am I doing here, and where are my pants?" As a consequence, Nintendo's stock fell to the lowest point in five years. This new news isn't going to help matters.

Talking with CVG during E3 week, Nintendo global president Satoru Iwata wouldn't get into exact pricing details when asked, but he did admit, "This is not going to be cheap." Uh oh. He did point out that it will probably cost more than 20,000 yen (about $250) when it drops next year.

Honestly, we can't expect it to cost less than the Wii, especially not with a giant touchscreen on the controller and 360/PS3-level graphical capabilities. But how much can Nintendo charge for a new console before it's too much? It's hard to tell what is "the right amount," especially since there hasn't really ever been a console like this before. The closest I can come up with is the SEGA Pico, and we all know how that turned out. Or maybe you haven't even heard of the Pico, in which case, that's exactly how it turned out. Regardless, it had better be less than $599.

I predict that the Wii U shall be ranging from £240 to £300, controller inclusive. The controller alone should be approximately £40.

As far as Aussie dollars go, $500 - $550 is what I expect to pay. I am a huge Ninty fan and loved the new console's presentation but I would be hard pressed to find justification to pay beyond that amount (which is already really pushing it)...

Looking at the current Australian prices of consoles...

160GB PS3: $460AU
4GB 360 + Kinect: $400AU
Wii: $150AU
3DS: $330AU

So I'd expect the Wii U to launch at ~$450AU+........ which would put it at a US launch price, using the Wii launch price as a benchmark, of ~$300US+

I'd expect 250-300 for the console at least, I don't think many people out there are going to dish out more money for a new console a year after the 3DS has been released.

Also in this current climate, charging over 300 will just kill it. Food is more important than buying a video games console afterall.

Predicting 350 dollars/euros. I think the tablet's actually more expensive to produce than the console itself. Makes sense that they announced it won't be sold separately.

250 € for the Wii U console, a tablet controller and a game = day one purchase.

300 € and I would be somewhat unhappy with the purchase. I would buy it anway but it's the absolute maximum I would pay. At 300 € it would be the most expensive Nintendo console ever at launch which is bitter. I don't want Nintendo to make more expensive consoles. Everyone can put in the best technology and sell it for 1000 bucks. I want Nintendo to bring out their new hardware when it's affordable to everyone - that's quoting Nintendo's own words.

I'm a little scared about Nintendo's new pricing strategy because the 3DS is way too much for a handheld at 250 €. I hope it's really just the new 3D screen that makes it so expensive and hope it gets around 160 € - 180 € soon.

$300 seems logical considering the 3DS released at $250, and Ninty needs to remain cost competitive with other consoles in order to have a competitive edge. A good concept only gets you so far, as the price needs to convince the customer that this concept is worth their money.
