We know how much the Wii U costs. We know what games are coming out for it. However, we are still missing a few key pieces of information. Namely, what about the controllers? Also, how much are the games themselves going to cost?
Nintendo has confirmed that the Pro Controller, a.k.a., the one that looks like an Xbox or PS3 controller, will retail for $49.99. It should be available on November 18th with the rest of the launch day hardware. There has been no word on the North American price for Gamepad “tablets,” but since no announced games support more than one at a time, this is less of an issue. However, it will quickly become important when the devices start breaking. The confirmed Japanese MSRP is ¥13,440 ($173.62).
Additionally, Nintendo has revealed a base $59.99 price point for retail boxed games. Presumably there will be variation, but this more or less brings this console in line with the other HD platforms.
