Amazon List Wii U Release

As of right now we know that Nintendo has confirmed the Wii U will release worldwide this holiday season, which leaves us to this question. When will the console go on sale? According to Amazon Germany, the new system will arrive on December 21, priced at €399, or about $500.

The original Wii launched in North America during November 2006 at $250 and arrived in Europe a month later for €250.

Earlier this month, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter said the Wii U must retail for under $300 at launch.

The Wii U is Nintendo’s first high-definition console and has gigantic shoes to fill if it wants to replicate the success of its predecessor. The original Wii launched in 2006 and is presently the top-seller in the current generation, topping the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
