Sort of have to agree with TC here. Kind of underwhelming. There really is no system selling killer app.

Rayman Legends and Runner 2 will be great I'm sure, but they aren't going to move systems. New Super Mario Bros. U will probably by the best selling early Wii U game, but still Nintendo hasn't exactly distinguished it against NSMBWii.

The PS3 and 720's prices will be much higher.


Xbox 360 started at $299 when it launched, and it was packing FAR more advanced tech for its time than WiiU. What makes you think the next Xbox will be more expensive?


it also had a high failure rate and very few good games in its first year.

I missed the beginning. Did they announce the US price?


$300 for regular
$350 for premium and Nintendo Land

Thanks.

Microsoft was selling the console for a huge lose when it first came out and they are more than likely not going to do that now given their position.


Why not?

they sold the original one at a loss to get more gamers attached after the failure that was the Xbox and now that they are in a comfy position and want to focus more on the media aspect they don't need to lose money on every console sold.
