What the Nintendo Wii U Console System Will Cost You
With 30 days to go before Nintendo’s latest console, the Wii U, is released, the console’s pricing information is out.
The Premium Pack contains a black Wii U console – with 32GB internal storage and the GamePad controller, plus Nintendo Land, which should retail for R4,599.
For survival horror fans, the Wii U exclusive launch title, ZombiU has its own ZombiU Wii U Premium Pack, featuring a black Wii U console, plus both a GamePad and a Pro Controller. It will cost around R4,999.
All Wii U peripherals will be available too, in case you need extra controllers or accessories. And for those of you who already own a Wii, there’s no need to rush out to replace your peripherals: the Wii Remote Plus Controller and the Nunchuk are both compatible with the new console. If you don’t own these controllers, Nintendo is offering a Wii Remote Plus Additional Set for around R899.
