Wii U goes on Sale in Japan on December 8

Nintendo has today unveiled the release date and pricing for the Nintendo Wii U in Japan. The Wii U will go on sale in Japan on December 8. The Wii U Premium Set will sell for 31,500 Yen (~$405) and the Wii U Basic Set has a price tag of 26,500 Yen (~$338). Based on the Japanese prices I predict that the Wii U Premium Set will sell for $399 and the Wii U Basic Set has a price tag of $299. We will know for sure at 10am EDT today when Nintendo hosts a media event in New York to unveil the Wii U US launch details.

The difference between the Wii U Premium Set and the Wii U Basic Set are storage capacity and accessories. The black Wii U Premium as 32GB storage and the white Wii U Basic Set has a storage of 8GB. The Wii U Premium Set also includes a Wii U GamePad charging stand, Wii U GamePad play stand and one set upright stands for Wii U.

I am still on the fence if the Wii U will be successful. I am pessimistic as the Xbox 360 offers much more and the new gaming paradigm of different controllers sounds very niche to me.
