    Wii U price likely over $250

    The Wii U will "likely" cost more than 20,000 ($250/150), Nintendo leader Satoru Iwata has revealed.


    His comments were made to The Nikkei Japanese newspaper and reported by Bloomberg.


    Price was a key contributor to the success of Wii. The Wii launch price was 25,000, $249.99, 179.99.


    Can Nintendo go under 200 with Wii U?




    UK and European prices are set by the shops not Nintendo. But consider the 3DS, and even the PlayStation Vita, and European prices are rising.
    The 3DS launch price was 229.99/249.99 - a disproportionate conversion of the Japanese (25,000) and US ($249.99) prices.


    It's a similar story with PlayStation Vita: the base Wi-Fi model costs 25,000 or $249.99. In Europe that price translates to 249.99. UK shops are listing Vita's base Wi-Fi model at 230.


    Therefore, the chances Nintendo will stay under 200 or 200 with Wii U are very slim.


    An official Wii U price hasn't been confirmed.

    The Wii U Controller would cost €100 + and the Console + Controller would be in the region of €399 - 450 which I think is way too expensive.

    Yeah, cant see them fancy controllers been cheap, cost a bloody fortune if you wanted four of them I bet. Usually in the UK a new console retails at around 300, although I'm sure the original Wii was under 200 when it was first released. Guess we wont find out until later in the year now either way.
