Quite a few rumors have been spreading about Nintendo’s upcoming home console this week as patents have been leaked to show its original design. Now the focus has been turned towards its unannounced pricing. A rumor has been spread by an unnamed inside source that the price will be US$300 which is only $50 more than the original Wii started off costing back at its launch.
This unknown source has also claimed that the Wii U will price at 300 Euros and in Japan for 20,000 Yen which doesn’t sound too bad for a console that’s supposed to have double the power of its rivals on the gaming market. At this time, EB Games Australia has the price set at AUS$598 but this is most likely to make sure they don’t annoy customers by having to put the cost higher in case they post it too cheap.
We should hopefully hear most of the important details about the Wii U including price and release date by the time E3 comes in June.
What do you think of this rumored price? Would you be happy to pay this amount of money for the Wii U? Do you think this will be the price at launch? Let us know in the comments!
