The question of how much Nintendo’s next home console is going to cost has been the biggest factor on many peoples minds when it comes to if they will be picking it up or not. The Wii U, along with its Touch Screen Gamepad has the potential to be fairly expensive, but Nintendo themselves are cryptically saying that the systems price will be “Reasonable”.
Many online retailers have already started listing pre-order prices for the Wii U, most of which are set high enough that they appear to be place-holder prices high enough to ensure that people don’t find themselves paying more then what they agree at pre-order.
The story got interesting last week when Amazon UK was forced by Nintendo to cancel its £199 Nintendo Wii U pre-orders after admitting it had made up the price. Since then, Amazon have been super tight lipped on the reasons for pricing it the way they did.
Since then, Amazon’s German site has taken their listed Wii U price of €399 and reduced it to €349 (the equivalent of £280 or USD $435).
What do you think? Does this price sound reasonable? What do you think prompted them to lower their Wii U Pre-order price? When do you think Nintendo will make it’s launch price official? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
