Nintendo has confirmed that Wii U titles will have a suggested retail price of $59.99. Normally this wouldn’t be much of a story but there had been quite a few rumors as to what the actual retail cost of Wii U games would be. Some rumors had it pegged at as much as $99.99 which most folks have always thought was ridiculous. There were also folks who hoped that rumors that the titles would retail for the same price as original Wii titles ,$49.99. I think that Nintendo had no choice but to price their titles the same as PS3 and Xbox 360 titles, if you want to say that your games are comparable quality, I think they need to be comparably priced.
Nintendo did clarify that original statement by saying that this is just a baseline price. “Specific games could be more or less.” So that pretty much confirms what everyone expected and you still have a few weeks to figure out what games you want to pick up at launch when the Wii U hit stores in North America on November 18.
