Wii U price and release dates announced


Nintendo just revealed the price and release date of its newest console for North Americans. It will come on November 18th, in two bundles:

The Basic set will have 8GB of memory and includes the console, a GamePad, an HDMI cable, a sensor bar and an AC adapter. The basic set will be $299.99 in the United States.

The Deluxe set will have 32GB of internal memory and includes everything in the Basic configuration, plus a GamePad charging cradle, a stand for both GamePads and the console itself, plus a copy of Nintendo Land. The Deluxe set will be $349.99 in the United States.

The console is coming to Europe in November 30th, although the price points for it haven’t been announced. We predict a 320-350€ for the Deluxe set, and a 270-290€ for the Basic set.

    Exactly in the price range I was thinking. Maybe one day I’ll buy

    I have no reason to buy this since I got a Vita and a PS3. Can anyone tell me why this is making you want to buy it?

    Well obviously, one reason is that it’s my job :P Second reason, I’m a collector, can’t miss on it! Third reason, I have faith Nintendo will innovate. So far, the Wii U was DOA for me, but in just one day, Nintendo managed to spark a lot of interest in it. And thus, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us!

    sigh, were still getting ripped throught the a$$!
    the AUD has been STRONGER than the USD for ages now, so why the ^%$# are things still 30 % more expensive here?
    conversions set at 330 ATM!
    yea add in other costs like tax and distribution, but still come on 120 bucks more!?
    looks like ill be importing mine from the states!
    releases 12 days earlier, AND its 120 bucks cheaper!
    so funny how retailers keep bitching that people are outsourcing but still treat their customers like this!
    bitch all you want, if your not going to DO something to SOLVE the problem its never going to help anything!
    i really thought retailers by now would of caught on and smelt the java by now………
