Topic: Wii U Prices (rumour)

Posts 1 to 12 of 12


Seems reasonable, unlike some of the prices people had thought up. I still can't believe some people would be willing to pay $500 or even $600 dollars for it.


That rumour about the price being $500-$600 was for Australian retail, meaning that was 600 Australian dollars. That's still a fair bit though.


I wonder if 6 months down the line, Nintendo will put the price down.

To be honest, I wouldn't want to pay £299 on a console... we don't even know how much the games are going to cost yet. I would definitely buy one on release if it was a bit more on the cheaper side. Who am I kidding, it's Nintendo, gotta buy this.

$300 dollars isn't that expensive here. Just $50 more than the Wii, so ya, I'd buy it at launch.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

£299 sounds fair enough. i'd go with that or £200-250.

I didn't mean actual rumours. I had just heard some people say that they would be willing to pay those prices if it was as expensive as that.


$299 here in the States seems reasonable, and the Wii U fund has already begun. A much better price point than when the PS3 was launched here. I don't see Nintendo dropping the price to under $249 for at least a year, possibly two, after launch though. They seem determined to make their launch point stick this time around.



At $300 that would be a great price. Sure hope so.



I'm willing to pay $300.
I would also be willing to pay $400.
$500 is a bit steep, but still worth it.
$600 perhaps, but are there any games out for the thing?
$600+ I really want it, but I can't get it at launch. Maybe in a month or two.

I own a PS1, GBA, GBA SP, Wii (GCN), 360, 3DS, PC (Laptop), Wii U, and PS4.
I used to own a GBC, PS2, and DS Lite

I'm on YouTube.
