Rumor: Wii U to cost $299

According to sources of GameTrailers editor.

Wii U, Nintendo’s high-definition console with a tablet controller, will cost $299 when it launches this holiday season, according to sources of GameTrailers editor-in-chief Shane Satterfield.

“We’re going to assume that the Wii U is going to cost $299,” said Shatterfield in the latest episode of Invisible Walls. “And I have heard through certain channels that that is likely going to be the price of the system.”

Nintendo, of course, has yet to confirm a release date or price.
