Wii U: Wii U Price And Release Date Next Year

The pricing and the release date for Nintendo’s forthcoming home console, Wii U, will not be unveiled until next year. Here is the quote:

“Since the Wii U we showed you at the E3 show in June was still in the development phase without very specific proposals on the software titles, we are going to announce the release date and the price next year when we are able to explain the specific proposals.”

That last part….”specific proposals” makes me think there may be multiple sku’s upon launch. Maybe Nintendo will launch a Wii U with more than 1 controller for a different “base” priced system. Either way we look at it, it appears as though we will have to wait a while to hear the price for the system.
