Wii U price is too high in Australia...It's like you're buying a new console with Sony price...
What do you mean? The most expensive version of the PS3 retailed for $999 here when it launched. The black Wii U's RRP in Australia is $429.95 (though can easily be found for a little less).
Yes, back in March 2007, PS3 60GB with 4 USBs and multi-media card reader was sold for $1000; it was, indeed, a lot cheaper than all other Blu-ray players which cost over $1000-2000 with no HDD at that time. PS3 was considered to be a technical masterpiece in late 2006 and early 2007.

But for Wii U, considering its sole function for gaming and the lack of versatility in-general, I think it's still expensive...I also expect a massive Wii U price cut later this year (just like 3DS price cut in 2011).

What I mean is a Black Wii U for $429 is not good enough for some, they would either go to PS3 or Xbox 360, because they're both a lot cheaper than Wii U which also lacks good launch games thus far!!

I excepted their profit to drop a lot.I was mistaken,but I do hope the price for the Wii U lowers.
