And the date?

Seems reasonable. People need to remember that hardware prices are never just put through a currency converter site by Nintendo. It's always vastly different.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free
Will probably get the premium set, if its released here for 299€. + that black hardware.

there doesn't seem anything premium about the premium set. wtf is in the basic set. a wii u and a rock?


edit.

nevermind, the original OP was missing info. ok. 32 GB seems like Nintendo might be a little serious about online.

There's a lot of shit for the premium
 
The basic set has a white wii-u and pad, 8 gigs of internal system memory, AC charge cables for both the system and controller, and an HDMI cable.

Also those prices are the tax-included ones.

I just hope Nintendo doesn't go with the shaft-Europe route to subsidize the US:

$250 / $300.
300 € / 350 €.
 
as usual Fake Kaz is on the spot..


Fake Kaz never disappoints.

Oh hey, an HD system coming with an HDMI cable in the box


Sony, this is something you should copy next time around

What makes this even worse is that the 360 Elite DID come with it or a long time, but it was taken out of the box to sell to you for $50.

(Also HDMI cables are like $3 online, plus sold bulk to companies for less than 30c a cable.)

That's a smart move with the black hardware being premium only.


We will learn about EU/US release and price today.
 
Everything is really compelling to me except for the GamePad standalone price. Thankfully there are no games announced that will need 2 GamePads for multiplayer.

You should've made this thread instead of the Nintendo Network Premium thread.
