One of Amazon's distributors has claimed that the Wii U will launch on November 11, with a price tag of $249.
The website for VPD, who is a distribution company with its clients ranging from Amazon, Blockbuster and Overstock, has given a November 11 release date for the console, as well as apparently confirming three SKUs:
- WIIU SYSTEM - GM - 11/11/12 $249.99
- WIIU SYSTEM W/ - GM - 11/11/12 $299.99
- WIIU SYSTEM 349 W/ - GM - 11/11/12 $349.99
The two latter bundles may include additional games or peripherals or both to warrant their higher price tag.
To add credence to the report, the listing can only be viewed via a trade account, but a YouTube user recorded footage of the page, as seen below.
Whatever the price is for the console, Nintendo has promised that the Wii U will be sold at a "reasonable" price.
