Wii U will have a 'reasonable' price, says Iwata

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Although Nintendo hasn't yet announced an official price point for the Wii U, it's evidently going to have a "reasonable" price. In an interview with Yomiuri Shimbun Daily earlier today, CEO Satoru Iwata stated that in pricing their new console, "we won't make the same mistake that we did with the 3DS, which was considered relatively high by consumers."

Wii U price will be reasonable according to Nintendo's Satoru Iwata

While we don't yet know the price, we can certainly make estimates; one analyst, quoted by Yomiuri, set the price point at somewhere around $380.00 USD, stating that it'd be the break-even price for Nintendo. Still pretty pricy, but not terribly expensive for a console on launch day. 

In addition to talking a bit more about the unique features of the Wii U, Iwata addressed the dire financial straits Nintendo's been in during the past fiscal year. Although he admitted that the rising yen was causing difficulties for the developer, he promised that the 3DS profitability issue had been fixed, and that they will "turn profitable by the end of this fiscal year."
