Rumors have been circulating that the Wii U will be priced at $300 when it launches. This water cooler talk has made its rounds across the good ol’ internet since the platform was first announced by Nintendo at last year’s E3. Hell, the $300 price tag was speculated since before the big reveal.
You can now add yet another morsel of information to the pile of rumors. The image seen above is a supposed screenshot of a Best Buy employee’s terminal, and it comes courtesy of GoNintendo. As you can see, the system is listed as “coming soon,” and it features a cost of $299.99.
It certainly looks pretty legit, but even if it’s not, the likelihood of Nintendo asking consumers to pay $300 for the Wii U is practically a given. What do you say, eXophase? Does $300 seem like a fair price to pay for some new Nintendo hardware? I had the opportunity to play some ZombiU at E3 this year, and after seeing how well the Gamepad worked, I’d be willing to shell out the cash for the console if it has a compelling software lineup.
