How much are you willing to pay for a Wii U?

Postby TANK » 02 Dec 2011 11:36

Uk new consoles cost at retail about £299/£350 add £45/50 (you have to buy the crappiest game before buying the game you really want.

$500 is the most I'll pay for any console and $250 for any handheld. Ah UK.. I'm in the US.

I'd go up to $350, probably no higher than that.

$250. Not that it's a bad thing, but it feels like an updated Wii. If there were some killer titles coming out, I may pay more.

$300 - $320. Plan to get 3 games to go with it. I'm also going to use my Gamestop PowerUp points to get an HDMI cable.

350 -> 400 if the console is a nice gap ahead of 6 year old consoles.

Now that I think about it, within that price range I would also like a Wiiremote Plus and a Nunchuk included

I agree with this post but if it's just an updated wii with HD graphics 200 to 250 maybe 300 but that's pushing it

$300, probably. $250 for the spec, and another $50 for the controller gadgetry.

Save your points. Just get a $3 HDMI cable from monoprice or something. It's all the same.

if it has the same specs as the 360 as the rumours are saying, no more than £100.

if it has the specs of a true next gen console that will be able to run just about every single multiplatform game without being so dumbed down, up to about £250, maybe a little bit more depending on the launch lineup

$299.99 and not a penny more. If it launches at a higher price point I'm waiting for a price drop. If it comes bundles with a game at $349.99 I might think about it, depending on the game.

$299 seems quite reasonable. I expect the Wii U to sell somewhere between $250 and $300, though realistically I think it will be somewhere in the middle, like $279.99 or something. Nintendo has always been about affordability, so I'll trust them on the price (even the 3DS, though priced high for many, was to me perfectly fine at $250).

I would be fine with $300 or less. I doubt it would be much more, Nintendo usually tries to sell their systems as cheap as possible. I guess the main issue is going to be how much it will cost them to make the controller, since they also usually sell at a profit.

However much it is when there are a few titles of merit worth purchasing the system for.

monoprice.com and nintendo should ship the unit with an hdmi cable, if they ship their hd system with composite cables, I might burn something down.and it doesn't matter what the connectors are made of as long as the signal gets across. a 1 and 0 are 1s and 0s all day long.

that said, if there is a couple quality titles that I want out on launch day ("launch window" can bugger itself with a rusty spade), then I'll pay up 300$ for it. if it is, however, a glorified 360 with a bunch of casual tech demos and shovelware on day one, then I'll pay 0$ for it and wait until the price drops or good software is out.

If you can't shop online that might make things a bit trickier, but with a little digging you should be able to find some in a computer hardware or discount electronics store. I could give you a few examples if you lived in Canada, such as CanadaComputers, NCIX, TigerDirect.ca, FactoryDirect, but I'm not really familiar with the US.

shovel, they could list anything they wanted. They've done lists where nothing of any note has come from the listed. I want to see products.

I was at Biglots today and saw some 6" HDMI cables for I think $14 and some 12" for either $17 or $19. I still might use my points for one at Gamestop since i have plenty and i might not have enough for the $50 off coupon. I have more than enough for the $25 off and HDMI cable. I plan to use the $25 off for Wii U. I got 35348 points so far. 50000 for $50 off. close. I only need one more HDMI cable.

I've got around six HDMI cables just laying around waiting to be used, and a couple more hooked up to my devices. And altogether they couldn't have cost me more than $30. And they all work great.

Order one online, man. Unless GS points reset yearly or something, then you might as well

As long as i buy something within a year they stay. no resetting every year or two. I think i saw a three pack for $25. I was trying to see if it was three separate cables or one that can connect 3 devices. Probably 3 separate. I'll look for some cheap cables but i want gold connectors.
