Ubisoft Boss Thinks Wii U Is Cheap, But Is Still Unhappy On Pricing

No pleasing some people
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has stated that although the Wii U is cheap when compared to devices like Apple's iPad, he's not 100% happy with the price of the system.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Guillemot remarked:
I always prefer lower pricing, so I can't say I'm happy. I'm never happy when the machines are expensive. What we have to do there is remember that compared to an iPad, it's cheap. With what it brings [to the gaming table] it's cheap. But I hope they'll be able to drop their price in time.
Guillemot's comments are curious, especially when you consider that the Wii U launch price - when adjusted for inflation - is one of the cheapest console launches of recent memory.
Do you think the Wii U has been priced too highly? Or is Guillemot missing something here? Drop a comment to let us know your feelings on the topic.
