The famous analyst Michael Pachter has said to CVG that in order for the WiiU be successful Nintendo can't not price it over $300. He also said the he thinks that the best price for it has to be $249.99 or less. Source IMO I totally agree with this guy. Knowing that the WiiU is not more powerful than the PS3/360 which are selling now for an affordable price I think the same as this guy. But Nintendo already said that they wont be selling it at loss and with that big controller and all its functions IDK what the price will be.
