Hopefully that is the price for the wii u. What I wonder though is if Nintendo will bundle the console with a game, sort of like the SNES with Super Mario World and the Wii with Wii Sports

If that really is the price then Nintendo isn't playing anymore (teehee).

The gloves are off and Nintendo is getting very competitive.

Might actually get it at these prices. I'm guessing that perhaps the 2nd or 3rd one will include a 2nd controller. Perhaps different storage space levels as well.

I know the controllers will be expensive (they have bloody screens on them, of course they will).

The WiiU WILL have BC with games and peripherals right? Won't be interested if it isn't.

Seems pretty logical, price wise. It will be interesting to see what the bundles are.

Shadow of Death, Wii U is supposed to be compatible with almost all Wii games and all of the Wii controllers. It is not backwards compatible with Gamecube games or controllers, though there was talk of putting them on the Virtual Console as downloadable games.

At these prices I might actually get one after all, was keeping an eye on the Vita but if they're the same price....I might just have to reconsider.

Looks like they might be pulling a nes this time around with the assorted bundles. My guess is the first is a bare bones model (have everything, pick the rest out yourself), the second is a standard console+game one, and the third is a deluxe edition.

WIIU SYSTEM - $249.99 - possibly a Wii U minimalist slim with no dvd drive ???

I doubt they'd do an SKU without a disc drive. Its probably just the basic model with only the gamepad, with the more expensive models having pack-in games or controllers like Wiimote+'s or the Pro controller.

Gaming companies have stated that the future will be all digital so there for it is plausible and I for one believe that Nintendo is going to surprise us all and release a Wii U with no disc format and go fully digital. If not now then maybe in a year or two. We'll find out soon, Sept. 13 is right around the corner!

I don't doubt there will be different bundles, but maybe they just created three price points because they don't know which one it will set in at yet?

Not sure if I want to believe this day as Paper Mario: Sticker Star is released on the 3DS. Just can't see Nintendo releasing what is a big title for the 3DS on the same day as their console. I know I won't be buying the Wii U on launch unless they announce some titles I really want.

One theory I've read is that the date and possibly the prices are what the retailers will order. So it will ship to retailers on the 11th and have a public street date of some time later, probably the 18th.
