Wii U in time for Christmas 2012
It looks like Nintendo has narrowed down the release date for the Wii U somewhere between June 2012 and the "end of 2012".... so I'm guessing that it'll probably release RIGHT before Christmas and go for a "pretty penny". Then, let's not forget the mass hysteria and short supply that has followed every single console release since the PlayStation 2.... including the year and a half that just about nobody could even find a Wii in the stores.
Nintendo stands to make a fortune on this if they market it right before Christmas with enough supply to meet the demand. At any rate, start saving up your pennies now folks, with the expectation that when the Wii U is finally released, you'll have the cash on hand to actually snag one. I myself will try to set aside $50 per month from here on out....that should yield me about $600 by next Christmas... if they cost any more than that I will vehemently say "Fahgetaboutit!" (as will the wife) :dft010:
