Nintendo Reconfirms Wii U Pricing And Release Date In The Autumn

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has confirmed to investors once again that the release date and pricing for Wii U will be announced sometime in the Autumn. Iwata reiterated that when the company announced Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS, they didn’t announce pricing, or a release date, at E3 in Los Angeles.

“We made a statement in public before E3 that we would announce neither the launch date nor the price (of the Wii U) at E3. It’s nothing new at all because, when we introduced the Wii, the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo 3DS, we didn’t announce the launch date or the price at the E3 shows, either.

“It is our intention to convey a strong message this fall with the information about the price and the launch date and then to create momentum good enough to convince our consumers to buy (the Wii U.”

              2. 2/10 because I replied

                He said you would be the first to get raped and asked you how you felt about it.
                Not that you had been raped.
                You can still get raped if you’re a virgin.
                You can still be a virgin even after being raped if they stuck it in your ass. Can’t lose your virginity if it’s a dick in your ass.

                thank you! You sir have a brain at least!

  1. Autumn for what country? Japan or the US. I’m in Australia and its winter. Sitting next to a heater as I type.

    1. Japan is the northern hemisphere like the us so they have the same autumn. But for you Aussies it would be September-November your spring

      1. Autumn officialy starts Oct21 Ends Jan21 but idoubt that will be the case they will go by what people think to be autumn sept-dec

  2. Great, now someone using my username -__- guess it was only inevitable seeing the amount of idiots that are present on this site.

    Anyway, cmon Nintendo, just give us the price and date. By the time you release it, it’ll only be about 2 months away

    1. Er no I am the real Dragon. Basement dweller legend!!!!!!!

      Good to see a Wannabe on this site…I know I am cool but at least change the order of the numbers in your username kiddo

      one last thing

      MII WARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      leave fried DUCK in my oven so I can eat it and go to HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. No, because i dont talk like fucking retard.
        I know its hard waitinf for your daddy to get back to fuck you in the arse, but there must be another activity you can do, that doesn’t involve you looking like even more of an imbocile.

        1. waitinf? excuse me? you mean waiting and it’s imbecile.

          try harder before you troll someone shirmp.

            1. Haha! This dude tries to correct others but screwed his own spelling up. What a miserable individual, calling people shrimp and shit. Lmao

      1. How am i getting offended? The only things that’s happening is people like him and you (most likely the same person), are just embarrassing yourselves.

        1. Swearing much? rofl please child…give me a break. Calm down. Sit back and play some Nintendo games.

          MII WARA!!!!!!!!!!!

          1. The use of profanity was neccessary to show how much of an absolute moron you are. And i’m not playing on Nintendo, i’m on my PS3, but i’ve paused it because i can’t help but make someone look like 10x the fool they already are

            1. TheDragon234 i CAN COUNT BECAUSE i AM SPECIAAAAAAAAAAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              you tough guy on the net ooooooooooooooh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              1. It’s nice to see that you can re-type someone’s username. Good for you, stretching your skills so much.

    2. sorry dude u know nintendo they always released there price 1-2 moths before the console arrives.

    1. No, there’s just the one, you. I think you misunderstood the people on this site, they actually have brain cells, so they know it’s just you. You’re about as significant as piece of dust that you brush off your sleeve.

      so sony faggots and xbox faggots dont copy them by reducing their consoles prices even more? thought of that?

  5. Um…..
    Didn’t they say that the Wii U will come out in summer!??!?!?!!??!?Or maybe this YEAR!
    If its autumn, than it will come out in 2013! Cuz autumn is almost by the end of the year, and they should atleast reveal the price, because ppl would like to save money early!y

  7. This approach may have been okay with the Wii because we always knew it would end up being more affordable, but I think they should at least announce the price or the release date sooner than later. People need to know so they can start setting aside money for it. I haven’t saved anything so far because it seems like there’s still a lot we don’t know about it yet.

  8. i am a little worried about nintendo.Rumours says that wiiU could be the next dreamcast.i hope its not true,and if that happens then its sony’s fault because they were copying nintendo so many times and gamers are idiots because they only want to play first person shooters and not something else!THE NEXT DREAMCAST WILL BE PS4 IF IS THAT SO,BECAUSE PHONY LOST 6,2 BILLIONS WITH THEIR PS3 AND NOW WITH THEIR PS4 THEY WILL LOSE MORE!I WISH SONY WOULD BECOME 3RD PARTY DEVELOPERS AND LEAVE NINTENDO ALONE.SAME WITH MICROSOFT BECAUSE THEY ARE WORSE THAN SONY WITH THEIR PC AND XXXBOX!


    1. TheDragon234 i CAN COUNT BECAUSE i AM SPECIAAAAAAAAAAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      what rumours? source? exactly shut the fuck up otherwise!

      you seriously need to calm down

  9. I say wait for a Nintendo Wii U direct to come out sometime soon and stop all this moaning about the date & price

  10. how are people suppose to get excited when they plan to announce the price so close to the launch window. unless that beast is super affordable people are not going to be happy.

  11. Sorry, Iwata, but I have to disagree w/ you here. If you announced the date and price now, people can set a saving goal and know how long they have. It can’t be done separately, or mass frustration will ensue. If there’s a reaction in Sony’s and Microsoft’s pricing that’s just a risk that Nintendo will have to take. There are things that can be announced close to their release like some digital content, but a new system is not one of those things.

      1. 1. I don’t know why it’s taken this long for someone to say “SonofMrBitch.” Would’ve thought that name would come up sooner, especially here where such petty insults are prevalent.

        2. Concerning my initial statement, I don’t think the timing of a price/date announcement will affect the system’s ultimate success. It removes certain barriers we’ve experienced for years, some we’d just learned to live with. Such progressive aspects include the pad’s motion capabilities allowing for a 3rd analog input (movement/aiming/exterior camera) and the extra screen potentially offering a second view on the same scene (no more “stuck behind a wall” bad camera problems). There’s plenty to do with it, and I look forward to seeing developers work with the Upad. I’d just like Nintendo to get off on the best foot possible with Wii U, and the price could be an easy way to get some people to take notice.

  12. it would be nice if people couldnt use the names of other users on this site. hence the multiple Aeolus, peteriuss, and TheDragon234
