I'm with the last poster. If it's truly more powerful than the other HD consoles, I can't see it being less than $350, given that the controller adds cost.

the 360 is only $200 and it's controller alone costs $60. the wii u is supposedly 2x as strong which (if true) is near the power increase the wii held over the gamecube and the controller probably isn't expensive enough to cost more than $100. the system also has no hard drive and doesn't use blu ray. considering that nintnedo got a hard kick in the *** with the 3DS pricing, i don't think $300 is out of the question. $350 sounds like the sweet spot though.

300 is my guess, but nintendo does always price systems too high, so maybe even 400... too much for me :(

Is that a joke. Nintendo is the best when it comes to pricing.

Nintendo, please give me Metroid V!

@ClaytonLuigi The Wii price drop happened LAST YEAR. It was like 200$ for the longest time. The 3DS is the ONLY gaming system from Nintendo that underwent a forced price drop.

@ClaytonLuigi
It wasn't forced though. Nintendo just felt like dropping the price to increase sales. It was selling fine as $250.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Not sure if anyone's mentioned this, but EB Games AU has advertised Wii U at a price of $598 AU for a while now, which (for some riduclous reason) translates to roughly $350 US in the games industry. I'm not completely sure about the reliability of this price (hasn't been confirmed by Nintendo), but it seems better than some random guy's estimate on the internet.

Haha, sorry about that, I just coudn't be bothered reading through all the comments when most of them just seemed to be guesses. I assumed that those estimates meant they hadn't heard about it and had no other reliable news to go on, so it was worth a shot.

$350 USD for the system, $54.99 USD for games, and if I had to put a price on the controller I'd say something between $70- $90 USD.

the speculation now is that the wii u may cost as little as $250, the traditional amount for a Nintendo system: http://gimmegimmegames.com/2012/06/bloomberg-reports-that-iwa...
Reggie also stated in an IGN interview something along the lines that people would be "pleasantly surprised" by the price, which also suggests it'll be lower than we've been speculating.

all would be forgiven if this were true. this is honestly the only way i can see the wii u being a really successful system. that lackluster reaction to e3 can only make lower pricing even more likely!

Personally the console is so amazing that I think it should cost at least $600. This beats high end PC gaming with the touch controls and the built in camera and all the controller options and the hub and all the Nintendo franchises, and all in glorious HD... If they really price it at 250 dollars, it is amazing. Beats any other entertainment product on the market in my opinion. Then again, the 3DS is also incredibly priced. Less than 200 dollars for the basically only glasses-free 3d device on the market.
