Wii U Release Date Leak? German Amazon Lists Price And Date For Nintendo's New Console


Posted June 20, 2012 - By Stephen Johnson

Rayman Legends Wii U Features

The German version of Amazon is listing a Wii U release date as well as a price for the next-gen console. According to the site, the Wii U release date could be December 21, 2012 in Europe. Amazon.de has listed the Nintendo Wii U at €399.99, but said the price has not yet been set, so it may be different.

Before you add a Wii U to your Christmas shopping list, keep in mind that retail sites are notorious for using place-holder dates for eagerly awaited products, and this is far from a confirmation of the Wii U release date or price.  For their part, Nintendo issued a standard statement saying that the company does not comment on rumor or speculation, so there's no help there.

The official, Nintendo-approved release window is "Holiday 2012." Personally, I think it will come a little earlier than December 21, maybe closer to early November or late October. 

As for the price, your guess is as good as anyone's; Nintendo has yet to announce a price for their innovative device. If I were going to guess, I'd say it will be around $250-300. But, again, Nintendo hasn't mentioned the price.

What do you guys think: What will the Wii U's price be and what date will it come out?
