$300 would be lovely, I'd imagine we'd be getting it for about £230 in the UK (which is what I've been predicting for months, btw).

No higher than $349 is my bet. But the controller itself seems to be pretty pricey and I higly doubt Nintendo will include an HDMI cable with the console. As always it will probably just come packed in with a pair of Composite/RCA cables. Soccer moms jumping into the shnazzy man Vortex HD Wii U era will be scratching their bogus flappy noggins based on why Wii U games look so blurry on their nice shiny sparkly HDTV. They'll just use what's packed in because they just don't know any better.

Anyways! if the Wii U is truly $249(which i don't believe), i'm going to be very impressed.
Too bad Nintendo won't include a free coupon for a couple of TMNT Turtle Pies, in my tweenage mutant Ninja toitle' dreams i guess.

I hope that rumor is true, 300 and Nintendoland, and September.

$435? That just seems too high for a Nintendo console.
$399 would look more attractive.

I'm gonna go say it's going to be about $300. From what I posted and one of the Best Buy computers shows the same, with the right SKU. Bestbuy listed the Midnight Purple 3DS earlier... I am thinking this might be true.

Ok THIS is the LAST time I going to reply on this forum. IF you want to estimate the cost of the WII U you need to add $100 on the current price of the portable. So that gives us $280. This is asumming though that the WII U comes with a tablet and the console only. Then if you add a game, a Wii remote, etc that can be up to $340 if each Nintnedo WII U game is $60 dollars. And the WII remote will lose it value due to the generation leap to $30. So all together this is $370. This is assuming this is some kind of bundle.

Forget the Nintendo seal of approval
I only see GC 4.0 happening if I become a English major. Yeah, it is happening now. GC 4.0 will be released in 2020.

Didn't know you multiply MC by 2. Guess I need to brush up on my formulae.

$400 is a ridiculously high asking price, which is what NL reported on, if memory serves me correctly.
I'm expecting a high $200- very low $300. Anything else will mean a price drop will occur within three months of the console launching IMO.

@GamecubeMan32 So that 2 isn't an exponent? I always thought it was...

'Tis but a joke.

Currently the most credible rumor is that the WiiU will be $300 and include NintendoLand.

Price only needs to be competitive so given the price of it's competitors I'd expect it to be priced about where the Wii was at launch. $388AU seems very reasonable IMO.... maybe too reasonable so it'll probably be closer to $450AU.

Will be a "do I get a Wii U and Pikmin 3, a 360/PS3 and four games or one of them 16GB WiFi only new iPads?" sort of scenarios
