Wii U Launch Price Will 'Pleasantly Surprise'


Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has said that the Wii U Launch Price will ‘Pleasantly Surprise’ people.

Speaking to IGN in a video interview, he stated the following:

“Nintendo believes in being a mass market product, so unlike our competitors when they’ve launched historical systems to maybe start at a really high price and work their way down, we don’t believe in that. We want to launch at a price that’s going to represent an ongoing great value. If you look at the Wii, we stayed at $250 for a really long time, so we’re going to give that same level of thought to Wii U.”

“How do we launch at a value that we’re going to be able to sustain for a long time? I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised, if you will, about the way we’re managing value equation.”

What do you think the price will be? Let us know via the comment section below.
