Wii U pricing

Sorta kinda off topic but we've got to play the next COD on something, right? Anyway, here's the the first hint of the proposed price of the Wii U -

http://mynintendonews.com/2012/03/01/wii-u-to-be-priced-at-299-in-north-america-and-20000-yen-in-jap...

So if the price matches that's around £190 for us Brits.

Sounds good to me if it's true. Thoughts?

£190 seems reasonable given the wii was what, £140 at release? Maybe its not all that? Mind you, Nintendo know, unlike PS ,theyre gona sell millions of these things, and the more you sell the cheaper you can sell them for. Nintendo prices have always been ok.

Or maybe its just not all its cracked up to be ?

It's about the same price as the Wii was (£180) at release, that's definitely not a coincidence using a similar price after the numbers they sold. After the eff up Sony made of the PS3 pricing originally and the hole Nintendo dug themselves with the 3DS it's probably suicide to price a games system any higher at the moment. At that price they'll get the Wii Fit crowd to upgrade as well as the likes of us, add in some bored Xbox/PS3 owners and we could have a runner here.

Guess a Wii is my only hope for playing Super Mario Sunshine again?

You never know, they might add Gamecube games to the new Nintendo online. We can dream.

We never get a good deal close to the exchange rate, it'll more likely be £229 - £249 or thereabouts, if $299 is accurate.

I'm fine with that, to be honest I was expecting around £350.

only $299?  Thats awesome!  I figured it'd be near 400 or more because of that fancy controller tablet thing...  I sure hope that's accurate!
