UK retailers announce Wii U pricing
UK retailers Game, HMV, Amazon and Play have confirmed their pricing for Nintendo’s Wii U console, launching November 30.
Game, Nintendo’s lead retail partner, will offer three options, starting with the white 8Gb solus pack, that includes console and gamepad, for £259.99. The black 32Gb console – which comes with Nintendo Land, a gamepad, sensor bar, charging dock, stand and one year’s subscription to the Nintento Network will be retail for a more hefty £309.99.
In addition to those, a ZombiU pack that includes the black console, ZombiU, Nintendo Land and an Wii U pro controller, will also be available and will set you back £349.99
Play.co.uk is offering its bundles at the same price, but HMV and Amazon.co.uk have undercut both, offering the solus and premium packs at £249.99 and £299.99 respectively.
Software is listed by all retailers at either £44.99 or £49.99 at the moment.
At the time of writing, the UK supermarkets have yet to reveal their own pricing. It’s worth bearing in mind, too, that the initial preorder prices of 3DS were significantly higher than the eventual launch price, dropping on average around £50.
