Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata has said that whilst the final hardware and software line-up for the Wii U will be announced at this year’s E3 expo, the pricing will be announced after.
Many expected a price to be announced at this year’s E3 in June but Satoru Iwata stated the follwoing:
“We will showcase the final format, and discuss the details and the software line-up for this year at E3 2012, which will be held in Los Angeles in the United States in June this year, Also, in the week after the E3 show, we would like to organise an opportunity where we can showcase the same to the Japanese wholesalers and financial analysts who cannot attend the E3 show. The people in our appropriate sections will let you know as soon as we have settled on further details.
“Please also be advised that, as we did for previous platforms that were launched in the year-end sales season, we will announce the launch date and price in each market sometime after E3.”
