Walmart Prices Wii U at $350



$349.99 to be more precise. It seems smarter to price it at $300 to me, especially with the fact that after its launch, PS3 and Xbox 360 prices will most certainly get cut. this is not official from Nintendo however, so try to take this with a gran of salt. It is worth noting, however, that in 2006 Walmart price the Wii at $250 before anything official was heard from Nintendo, and that wound up being the price.

So it'll probably be 250 here at ASDA. Meaning it'll most likely be 230 at Amazon. And by Christmas, there will be deals for it going at 200. Can't wait.

I seriously can't wait either. My brother's been considering getting a PS3 as well, so the price cuts on competing consoles will benefit everyone

No complaints here. I'd be willing to pay $300-350 for it. The Zelda demo they presented at E3 was soooo beautiful. Makes me drool thinking about it. Regardless of a Zelda title to be released for it or not it still looks fun to play on. It's something fresh and new. The gaming industry is about taking risks to keep bumping up the standards. To me this takes it up a couple of notches.

I expected it to be around $350. Not a dealbreaker for me.

I was just wondering how big the Wii U's hard drive will be. The PS3 & 360 have options so you only pay for the size you want; so pricing it at $350. Hmm.

But what's the point of it being 350$? It's not even in HD, so maybe when we get it's price to lower then I'll think about it.

Not even in HD? Where did you get that from? Even if it wasn't, it's got some impressive hardware inside it, as well as the controller.

Edit; I just checked, it supports 1080p, 1080i, 720p & 576i. Stereoscopic 3D too.

Edit 2; The Wii U is being priced at 500 by HMV over here. Got to be false.

Whoops, I must have gotten my info from the incorrect sources. Someone from Serebii Net Forums had said that it doesn't support 1080-720HP.
