Those secretive unnamed sources have been gossiping once more and this time the topic is the Wii U.
A lengthy post over on Forget The Box estimates the manufacturing costs for the new console to be around $180 (£114) and that the public will be able to buy the hardware at around $300 (£189).
“Cutting production costs to maximize profits is Nintendo’s main concern with the Wii U. They are cutting costs in the Wii U’s hardware to build back confidence in investors. Nintendo wants investors to view Wii U as a less risky proposition,” said the mysterious source.
Nintendo are likely to bundle the console with a game which will increase the price, but would you be tempted by a £200 Wii U?
