No Price Drop For Wii U Anytime Soon

Posted June 17, 2013 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in News

GamesBeat did an interview with Nintendo’s very own Scott Moffitt at E3 this year. They spoke about the competitiveness among the latest in next-gen consoles, along with the power behind the Wii U and why it can compete right along side it’s competitors. One main thing in the interview being mentioned is that there are no plans for a price drop on the Wii U any time soon.

Scott Moffitt explained with the following statement:

With great hardware coming, that will drive the install base. The perception of our price has changed, but what’s also changed is that people now see what great content is coming. They’ll see the value in those games. They’ll be able to enjoy a Wii U in their household for a lot less than a competing console.

Just last week, there were rumors hinting among gamers that the Nintendo Wii U may have a price drop, but as you just read, there are no plans of that happening for quite sometime. I can understand the logic behind this. While so many remain disappointed with the lack of major titles out at the moment for Wii U, you can’t argue that the future of the Wii U looks to be very promising since their latest announcements at this year’s E3.

With games such as Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, The Wonderful 101, the HD remake of Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, Super Smash Bros. and the incredible list of third party games coming to the Wii U, I believe the Wii U is becoming well worth the price so many gamers paid for it upon it’s release. I for one got mine when it first came out, and I got the Deluxe version, and I have yet to regret my purchase, especially seeing all these games coming out in the near future for the Wii U. The future can only get brighter for Nintendo’s Wii U from here on out, and we can expect many great things.
