    So tomorrow, Nintendo is holding a conference and they are gonna reveil the price and release date for the Wii U. What are your guys guesses about the release date and price. I have a feeling that it will be released very early November, and on a Sunday, since Nintendo seems to release everything on Sunday. So I say November 4th. As for price, I think $300 or so.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    It'll be Nov 18, $269.99 and will be hacked before the 3ds.
    100% guaranteed. There you go. :)

    Here's my predictions:
    • One configuration, available in black and white at launch
    • Price will range from $250 - $300, as everybody else guessed.
    • Includes console, gamepad, power/av cords, plus a stand/charger for the controller.
    • Stand/dock will be similar to the 3DS dock, and it'll hold the controller upright.
    • Nintendo Land will be sold separately, bundled with a Wiimote+ for $50 - $60.
    • Launches November 18th, as they've done twice now.
    • Games will go up to $60, just as DS --> 3DS went up.

    If there are multiple configurations..
    $250 - includes console, gamepad, power/av cords, plus stand/charger.
    $300 - everything above plus Nintendo Land and Wiimote+
    $350 - no clue!
