        1. yeh its pretty good seeing as the original wii launched at $399 here. Next time you want to convert currency, go to google and type “XE currency”. Best site to do that on.

          1. The Aussie dollar is worth more than the US dollar at the moment. Try thinking first. It makes you look less of a fool.

            This price is higher than I’d like. It’s not unexpected, but honestly, is it good enough to be a decent selling console in Australia ? Time will tell.

            I won’t be buying one at launch at that price. I have enough consoles and games to keep me busy for years to come.

  1. alba, a mistake in the description. You said “North America gets Wii U first on November 30th” at the end of the first paragraph. It’s coming out Nov. 18 in N. America, just to clarify.

      1. It is all to do with coding it all in Japanese nd other technicalitie’s .

        It’s never as simple as anyone would like . I am sure Nintendo tried to release it in Japan first , but there American and European Teams are further ahead in all the finalising …

  2. The Wii costed $400 when it launched here, and I didn’t think it was too bad a price, although I was only 12 so obviously it wasn’t me paying for it.

    This DOES seem a little steep to be honest, but… considering the free game plus extra 24 gig of storage, if the Basic price is reasonable I guess this one is.

  3. Should I buy like 3 or 4 wii u and resell on eBay for like double the price? I’ll get my money back plus I’ll be getting my wii u for free. Even if I resell for like $100 more each ill get my own wii u for cheap if not free

  4. im not sure if im excited. first of all I can’t believe the wii is on its way out. It seems like not too long ago when I got mine, and im a little annoyed that nintendo’s doing flash memory instead of a hard drive, i mean come on 32 gigs is not enough, and 8 certainly is not enough. they should include a hard drive with like anywhere from 20-200 gigs like the ps3 and 360. Neverless I am looking forward to the wii u :D

    1. Wii U is cheaper because of not adding a larger HD. That dont matter to me at all, I have a 1TB HD just laying around. I can use that and that will be plenty of room. 250 HD is like what $35-40. Are you going to preorder?
