What say you with regards to Wii U pricing? Too expensive? Willing to pay a little more? Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot has been a big supporter of the Wii U console, if you look at Ubi's extensive launch line-up, but even he thinks the Wii U might benefit from a more accessible price tag.
"I always prefer lower pricing, so I can't say I'm happy," said Guillemot.
"I'm never happy when the machines are expensive. What we have to do there is remember that compared to an iPad, it's cheap. With what it brings [to the gaming table] it's cheap. But I hope they'll be able to drop their price in time."
Putting Guillemot's comments in context, it's in Ubisoft's best interests for consoles to be cheap, to shift more units and expand the software market, but does he have a point when it comes to consumers? Considering the Wii U comes packaged with what is essentially a tablet, I thought the Wii U was pretty reasonably priced.
What are your thoughts?
