Nintendo Announces Wii-U Price, Release Date (Nov 18th)

September 13, 2012


In lieu of yesterday's new iPhone specs, here's some just-announced info on Nintendo's new console to help legitimize Geekologie as a tech blog. I'm doing a terrible job, I know. The new Wii-U console will drop November 18th (Nov 30th in Europe, Dec 8th in Japan) and come in two varieties, an 8GB white "basic pack" for $300 and a 32GB black "deluxe pack" for $350. There's some speculation over how quickly the console will sell because there haven't been any solid game announcements yet, but I imagine parents will still be buying the shit out of them for Christmas. And is it a coincidence I'll be lined up outside the mall on November 18th? Yes. (Victoria's Secret annual two-for-one panty sale)

Thanks to everybody who sent this and the iPhone announcement like I live under a rock or something. IT'S A CAVE.

    Black Friday is going to be fun this year. XD

    As always I'll wait a year before getting one -- for good reason.

    I hear ya lower prices and actual selection, you think I'd've bought a wii if I knew in two months they'd have red and black ones and not just lame ass white? If this thing even lasts, I'm waiting until A) it's cheaper, B) it comes in more colours, and C) you can get the largest mem capacity in any colour.

    So far the best part about this is when you say the name repeatedly it sounds like the 5-0 are outside.
