300 for basic

350 for prememusm

damn thats expensive.

#5 Posted by Ducksworth (660 posts) -

Nintendo Land? I guess it was an expected pack-in. I should probably shell out for a few extra Wiimote+'s and nunchucks.

#6 Posted by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

Worthy to note that you only get a pack-in (NintendoLand) with the Deluxe package.

#7 Posted by solidlife (878 posts) -

@Cincaid: will do thanks

#8 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

$300 for a outdated system on arrival or 6 games coming out this year?

#9 Posted by Demoskinos (14835 posts) -

I might be in for this... dunno. A few things have me interested in what it could do.

#10 Posted by Lumley (959 posts) -

The LEGO game looks pretty rad!

#11 Posted by CrossTheAtlantic (1145 posts) -

Well, this is kind of a bummer.

#12 Posted by JasonR86 (9708 posts) -

The price is fine. I still have yet to see a game I would be interested in buying though.

#13 Posted by solidlife (878 posts) -

this gives me hope at least they are trying with their online service hopefully their online game service will be on par with the current consoles!

#14 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

hey love how xbox live has all this video stuff we have it too

#15 Posted by JJOR64 (18993 posts) -

Going to GameStop to pre-order the Deluxe version soon.

On whats on the stream right now, I'm never going to use Nintendo TVii unless I can somehow get it to work with Dish Network, which is what my Dad uses.

#16 Posted by AndrewB (7617 posts) -

The Wii launched at $250 without the expensive to produce controller. I really don't see how this news is surprising or a bummer, and it's only a $50 difference from what the extremely optimistic crowd was guessing.

#17 Posted by SMTDante89 (2581 posts) -

Color me cautiously optimistic.

#18 Posted by Ducksworth (660 posts) -

I wonder if Nintendo has ever seen how comments sections turn out.

#19 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

project p-100 has been renamed to the wonderful 101

#20 Posted by Vexxan (4620 posts) -

Price seems fine, now bring on some games.

#22 Posted by Corey_F (18 posts) -

Damn it Nintendo...... take my money. The problem is that I now have to pre order this stupid thing. I hate having to pre order new consoles, but I don't want to deal with ebay/internet scaplers. I almost hate gamestop more though... should I try amazon?

#23 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19342 posts) -

Now want a Wii U just for Bayonetta 2. Finally, a game that I want.

#24 Posted by Lumley (959 posts) -

Bayonetta 2 is exclusive to Wii U?

Ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffuck

#25 Posted by Ducksworth (660 posts) -

Whaaat!? Why am I so behind?!

#26 Edited by Linkster7 (1025 posts) -

Hell to the yeah. I loved the first Bayonetta

EDIT: Now this is actually kinda impressive

#27 Posted by zyn (2591 posts) -

BAYONETTA 2 FUCK YEAH!!!

#28 Edited by VicRattlehead (1398 posts) -

#29 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

Bayonneta 2 exclusive for the Wii U?! THE FUCK?

#30 Posted by solidlife (878 posts) -

#31 Posted by Demoskinos (14835 posts) -

Pretty much this and I don't like the Dreamcast situation they have put themselves with that thing.

My thoughts exactly :(

#34 Posted by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

I must say I didn't expect to see Bayonetta 2 being exclusive to the WiiU, nicely done on that Nintendo.

And I certainly didn't expect to see Larry Hryb (Major Nelson) tweet about the Nintendo stream.

#35 Posted by Hailinel (24811 posts) -

Bayonetta 2 is the trump card of the day, apparently.

#36 Posted by N7 (3589 posts) -

Well fuck. My interest level for the Wii U has become a thing now.

#37 Posted by Marz (5653 posts) -

I'd probably buy the Deluxe version of the Wii U, i see no value in the basic version.

#38 Posted by cmblasko (1235 posts) -

OH GREAT Monster Hunter HD on Wii U, possibly the tipping point for me. Is there any reason why Sony would not pursue Capcom to make MH games for the PS4?

#39 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19342 posts) -

But that last montage of launch window games reminded me that there's really not much I want early on for the console, so I won't be getting it on day 1.

#40 Posted by Vexxan (4620 posts) -

Woah that's a lot of games I don't care about.

#41 Posted by solidlife (878 posts) -

I need more info on their Online strategy before I decide I want one

I think Nintendo can avoid this situation if they keep focus on getting their own titles out in reasonable time. If they can keep a Zelda/Metroid/Mario/Pikmin always on the horizon they will probably be ok. They just can't dick around with their releases like they have in the past. I would also be interested in seeing how the Japanese adopt this console, if it becomes the biggest system in Japan then I could see a lot more Japanese third party support coming.

It won't hurt whatever the next Microsoft or Sony console is in the US due to North American players really staying focused on Western games. I could see it being the Japanese industry console of choice though.

its also a list of games i cant get on my 360 and ps3 already as well

Wait, what? Why would there be a part of the conference not live streamed?

#46 Posted by Jams (2961 posts) -

So what are the games?

Because they can't live stream the orgy, obviously. Family-friendly company and all that.

That's pretty much my reaction as well. I mean, Wonderful 101 looks neat and everything, but for $300? No thanks.

#49 Posted by Chaser324 (6546 posts) -

As someone who's a lifelong Nintendo fan, I'm more worried than ever about how this Wii U thing is going to turn out.

Not everything is part of the stage presentation.
