2 – Pro Evolution Soccer 2013
3 – Gran Theft Auto V
4 – God of War: Ascension
5 – The Last of Us
6 – Call of Duty: Black Ops I
7 – Just Dance 4
8 – Assassin’s Creed III
9 – Grand Theft Auto IV
10 – Assasin’s Creed II

I'm from Brazil and I can say it's not a rumour. Some online retailers are already making reservations and pre-sales for the Wii U. The official prize is high, but it's less than PS4 or XBONE, and the Nintendo already said that is bringing games too, the price will be R$179~R$199 ($90~$100), and seriously it's a good price. PS3 games and X360 games costs R$150 ($75). I particularly always import mine from PlayAsia, but I cant wait 3 weeks to get the games like Super Mario 3D World from China, so I will get mine for R$179 ($90).
Well, it's not all the brazilians that can't affor that price, when I bought my PS3 (5 years ago), I paid R$1500 ($750). About the Wii U, I already have mine. I bought mine 6 months ago in Paraguay (neighbor country) for $380.
The biggest problem here, is that most people don't wanna play Nintendo anymore. There's a strong culture that Nintendo games is for children. Well, I'm 24 and I still loves NIntendo.
PS: Another problem here is that "grey market" (original products that are ilegally imported, most from Paraguay) is very strong, but it's because it's cheaper. Zelda bundle can be found here for R$1300 ($650). Pre-sales for PS4 is about half of the official price.
