Wii U Europe Release Rumored for December 7th

By - Source: Ubergizmo | B 7 comments

French retailer lists Wii U at €349 with a December 7th release date.

Last week, a leak from Video Products Distributors revealed an alleged U.S. release date along with pricing on three SKUs of Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console. There wasn't any evidence to suggest an identical European release date, but now it looks like European gamers will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the console.

According to another leak from French retailer FNAC, the Wii U won't make its way over to Europe until the 7th of December. In a photo snapped by Jeuxactu, the retailer posted newsboards inviting customers to pre-order the console with a possible price tag of €349. In addition, the company's online store also lists the first Wii U games at €69.90.

Of course, the release date and pricing could be pure speculation on FNAC's part. €69.90 is a bit steep for just a game, so let's hope they are just guesses. The good news is we'll only have to wait a few more days until the suspected Wii U reveal on September 13th.

    $450 for the system and $90 for a game? Aren't we going into a recession? Yikes :/ 

    If this is true, there is a good chance the new Xbox/PS4 will be just as expensive, unless these WiiU games are something special. Better yet, lets just hope these prices are fallacious.

    you guys still need to understand games over there are more than what we pay here. for comparison new Xbox360 or PS3 games generally are €67-69 there and their Xbox 360 halo edition is like €300.

    Damn straight. Brand new AAA games are usually €10 dearer in France than here in Ireland.

    Wii U games have been on sale at the Gamestop website for months now for $90. It's called a placeholder. We'll have something better than grasping at baseless rumors in a few days.

    If you were a smarter businessman you'd reinvest your "bonus" in buying 10 XBox 720s or PS4s next year and reselling all 10 of them for a much greater profit. Oh well.
