We've spoken with local publishers, including Nintendo, but everyone is staying quiet. Despite the fact we now have an release date and price for the Wii U, we have no official word on how much the games themselves will cost, or the Wii U GamePad for that matter. We don't even really know if the Wii U GamePad will be available to buy separately at launch...
So, in short we don't know much.
But here's what we do know -- in the US games are set to retail at $59.95US, which is a full $10 above the RRP of Nintendo games last generation, so we can expect to pay either the same price for Wii U games, or a little more, compared to brand new Wii titles.
EB is currently taking pre-orders on launch titles (and some post launch titles). It's (estimating, I presume) that the RRP will be $109.95, and is elling for $108. While, it's not concrete, I think a $109.95 RRP on the games themselves is a pretty safe bet.
It's also looking possible that additional GamePads won't be available for purchase at launch. They won't be available for US consumers on release date, but will be on sale in Japan when it launches on December 8. This is most likely a production issue -- Nintendo most likely can't make these things fast enough. Again, we'll update when we have something more concrete.
As for the price of the Wii U GamePad? Well, considering the pricing overseas, we'll give an estimate of $199.95. But again, we have no real idea at this point.
We'll update when we have something more concrete.
