There's been a lot of talk about the Wii U and its price tag, with no general consensus on whether its costed at a decent value for its price tag, or not. Admittedly, the Wii U isn't as powerful graphically as the Xbox One or the PS4, but the question is whether it really needs to be. Now that all the next-gen hype has mostly settled, the graphical differences in next-gen consoles don't appear to be that groundbreaking in comparison to their predecessors, besides smoother textures and higher resolutions. At this stage, it could definitely be argued that we didn't necessarily need an intense graphical upgrade from last gen consoles. For what the Wii U gives you, the price is great. This is constantly debated because a fair amount of the production cost for the Wii U comes from the Wii U Gamepad, which some claim to be an unnecessary accessory or an expensive gimmick that wasn't needed. Regardless, a next gen console for £230-250 is a decent deal when it comes with all the peripherals and a premium game. Images, videos and promotional material we've seen from upcoming Wii U games look amazing graphically, even though the Wii U is said to be inferior in its graphical capacities. At a much cheaper price than the Xbox One and the PS4, The Wii U's cost will probably amount to more units sold when more Nintendo games are finally released.
