Topic: Wii U price?

Posts 1 to 14 of 14


according to:
the Wii U is for $599(Australian dollar), pre-ordered...
At this price, I will never be buying this, or asking it from my mum. So, what do you guys think?

Not extremely into nintendo at the moment, but not really into anything else either. :|

Price is still TBA esp the Australian price so I wouldn't take it too seriously. Also $600 is way too high IMO, the PS3 goes for $330AU and the Xbox + Kinect bundle goes for $370 so I'd expect something ~$400-500AU. $600AU is just asking for units to sit on the shelves and, taking into account the "Australia tax", would translate to something like a $400US launch.

Bordering on PS3 launch prices.... that'd be almost DOA especially if it's not orders of magnitude more powerful than the PS3 and 360.

I think for Australia, the cheapest it'll be will be $400 and the most expensive will be $600.
I won't mind too much if it's $600, considering it's something that I plan to use for several years.
I've already paid $300, and as soon as I know the official price I'll start trying to pay the rest.
If it's only $400 then that's great, because that's just $100 more and then I can start focusing on games.

Nintendo won't reveal the price until months after E3. Any retailer price is just a placeholder at the moment — don't read too much into it.

I heard it was going to be a Cheep Cheep price of $999.
