GameTrailers: The Nintendo Wii U Will Cost $299

We’ve been hearing a lot of opinions on the price of the upcoming Nintendo Wii U, but Shane Satterfield, Editor-in-Chief of GameTrailers has said that the system will retail for $299. Now, this doesn’t sound like an opinion  to me; Satterfield mentioned that he heard through “certain channels” that this is going to be the launch price.  Well, $299 sounds reasonable to me. -Greg Boe (admin)

      They will most certainly not! Halo is made by Microsoft, the first party publisher for XBox, not Wii U, or any other console for that matter!
