    In both Amazon UK and ShopTo, the Wii U has risen to the top of the Electronics category in each site. Maybe the Wii U won't be doomed.

    ...That's only because of the price Amazon had it at. Pre-order price guarantee and all that jazz.

    No release date and no price yet. Crazy.

    Maybe that temp/mistaken £199.99 from Amazon gave it a nice spark. ;)

    I certainly hope it costs a lot less than £199.99.

    199.99 British pounds sterling = 310.2845 US dollars HELL NO

    Never been around for a console launch then?
    Better yet never looked at the pricing on any video game/console in Britain?

    Not really. When retailers were pricing the 3DS around £199.99 in the UK, 3DS was only $250 in the USA. :P

    well amazon have removed the black WiiU completely

    amazon will most likely provide a nice sorry letter and cancell the orders as the pre-order promise states in the terms and conditions that they may cancell at any time

    ShopTo normally quite bangon but at least you dont have to commit to buy from ShopTo, your just put in teh que for one
    they recommended yu dont pay now, you remain in the same place in the que weather you pay or not

    Well, if it is 199.99 EURO then it would be 250.667 US dollars.. very affordable. So, it is between 250 to 300 dollars is possible for USA.

    Amazon U.S. has Pikmin 3, NSMBU, and Nintendo Land for preorder for a cool $99.99 each! Wonder why they think they will cost that much? Perhaps they have packed in a 2nd Wii U tablet?

    It's 199£ which in return is 245€, which would be changed to 250€ once released. Since the Europe always pays more than the US in both consoles and games, it'll be like always, we get the console for 250€ and you get it for 250$ like with the 3DS, Vita and all the others, you'll get it cheap, while we'll pay the 310$. xP

    are you seriously complaining about it costing $10 more than a 250GB xbox or a 320GB ps3 for a six year newer system, with a touch screen?

    You must be joking, based on what we understand of the Wii U capabilities, it will be as capable (more or less) than 360/PS3. How is 6 year old technology supposed to be worth over $200 ? Just because they throw in a touchscreen ?

    because the other six year old technologies still cost that, i don't see anyone complaining about the cost of a ps3 or xbox 360 and neither of those have a touchscreen.
