It’s a commonly accepted that Nintendo will reveal both the price and release date of the upcoming Wii U, and EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich can’t agree more.
“I would expect Nintendo to make some form of an official announcement in September. Likely around (but not at) the Tokyo Game Show.”
“Nintendo didn’t release any information regarding pricing or unit expectations. It is tough to pinpoint any type of expectation when Nintendo themselves are being incredibly vague about it. Considering the potential for PS3/Xbox 360 price cuts this holiday, it is understandable that they are keeping their cards close to the chest.”
With the release of a new console, Divnich suspects that both Microsoft and Sony will announce price cuts for their respective home consoles near the holiday season to damage the Wii U’s sales.
