That’s right, folks. Will you be willing to shell out 300 dollars on release date for the Wii U? According to ForgetTheBox.net, the Wii U will only cost about $180 to make. Bare in mind that the Wii sold for $250 at launch, and was about $158 to make.
An unnamed source from ForgetTheBox who claims to be working very closely with this project says “The cameras in the Wii U controller are an estimated manufacturing cost of $6. They are slightly better quality than the 3DS and DSi cameras. The touch screen has a manufacturing cost estimated at $14.”
Does this sound good to you guys? Are you going to be picking this up on launch? I think 300 is the perfect price tag for this Wii successor, I’ll definitely be getting one. I’m also very excited to see what launch titles The Big N has planned to show off at this years E3! Stay tuned to NintendoFuse, we’ll have you covered with Wii U news. Wait, that kind of sounds wrong.
