Wal-Mart sets Wii U price at $350

WalMart Wii U Price


While I’m not sure how much stock you can put in Wal-Mart for making reliable pricing at this point in time, this is still something to go on to help in confirming how much the Wii U may cost in the end. It’s also worth noting that the original Wii’s price was set by Wal-Mart before its release and was correct, so this may prove to be a similar situation, though it’s too soon to know anything concrete.

A lot of speculation seems to be that a $350 price point is too high for a successful launch of the console, but the price really isn’t anything higher than other consoles have sold for in the last generation, so only time will really tell.

    I always had a thought that the Wii U will be priced between $299.99 and $349.99. This could be true about the price from Walmart’s website. I’ll wait until we get confirmation from Global President of Nintendo of Japan Satoru Iwata or the President of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime after the E3 press conference. No matter what the new system costs, I’m STILL buying it!

    300 or 350 dollars would make sense to me.

    That’s a little too expensive for me, but it’s within rational limits. Too more would be very bad, and too less would be somewhat less representative of the true quality of the Wii U.

      Why do you think it’s a little too expensive, Deuce? Reality check– We don’t know anything about the true quality of the Wii U, though it’s already proved that it’s more powerful than PlayStation 3 (especially using an underclocked development kit). Just wait until next month as well as the official release date and MSRP.

    Im ok with $300-$350. Afterall the Xbox 360 launched for $400 in 2005 and the PS3 for $500 a year later. Based on whats rumored to be under the hood I think it will be acceptable. Im more excited that theres no hard drive leaving them to use the cost for a better GPU.

      Problem is people already have it in their mind that Nintendo sell their consoles for cheap. Don’t ask me wherethey got it from but for some reason its expected of them, that’s why the 3DS bombed
