Amazon's German site notes that Nintendo "has not yet provided retail price and the price may drop even more".

Last week the online retail giant listed the Wii U for £199, despite the fact that Nintendo has not yet announced the RRP for the system. Amazon later apologised for the "error" in a mass-email sent to pre-ordered customers. All pre-orders were cancelled.

Nintendo has declined to comment on the listing.

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has said Nintendo must sell the Wii U for less than $300 (£190) per unit in order for it to stand a chance at retail.
