Nintendo will sell the Wii U across North America at a price beginning at $299, Nintendo has revealed.
The next generation Nintendo console will come in two separate models. The basic version comes packaged with an 8GB flash drive and HDMI cable and cost $299.
A premium edition, comes with a 32GB hard drive, along with additional stands for the games machine and a charging dock for its touchscreen controller. It will cost $349.
Nintendo revealed the details at a special press conference in New York, hours after it held a press conference for its Japan audience.
In Japan, the system will cost 31,500 yen (£252/$405) for a premium model and 26,250 yen (£210/$338) for a basic edition.
A free copy of Nintendo Land will come packaged with the console.
Yesterday CVG spoke to five leading consultants and analysts in the games industry to examine which Wii U price Nintendo can afford to set, and the pressures that will determine the company's decisions.
The consensus between five analysts was that Nintendo must sell the console for less than $299 in the US, and preferably less than $249.
