Wii U Release Date and Price Announced

Are you ready for the Nintendo Wii U?

Confirmed release has been set for November 18 2012, just in time for the holiday season. Two bundles will be available for purchase, the Wii U Deluxe for $349.99 and Wii U Basic for $299.99.

The announcement was made this morning, 7 am pst, during the presentation from Reginald "Reggie" Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America President. While pre-orders of the console are not available yet by most retailers, Game Informer employee Matt Miller has put out an article stating GameStop Opens Pre-Orders For Wii U.

If you want to catch one of those consoles on release date it is highly recommended to go pre-order your copy. Now which one should you pre-order, the basic bundle or the deluxe?

The $299.99 basic white bundle will include the Wii U hardware with 8GB internal storage, Wii U GamePad and GamePad Stylus, the sensor bar, HDMI cable with the Wii U console and GamePad AC adapter.

The $349.99 Deluxe Black bundle includes everything the basic bundle has, but with a 32GB internal storage. Also included is the Nintendo Land Video Game, Wii U GamePad Stand, GamePad Cradle, Console Stand, and an additional Deluxe Digital Promotion. With the promotion you accumulate points through digital downloads which can go to future downloadable content from the Nintendo eShop.

I will be pre-ordering this future console, will you do the same?
