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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
