Three SKUs likely for the Wii U

Written by David Stellmack

NA release to be November 11th

According to a distributor that supplies a number of major retailers, Nintendo will announce in its press conference that they will launch the Wii U in North America on November 11th. The date does fit the company’s pattern of always launching new consoles on Sundays.

In an interesting development, or at least one that we didn’t see coming, Nintendo is said to be releasing three separate SKUs for the Wii U. The three different SKUs (or bundles, if you will) are said to priced at $249, $299 and $349. It is not clear what each of these bundles will contain; but they are likely to contain more accessories, or a promotional bundled title, depending on which SKU you go with.

So far, none of our sources have been able to uncover the differences among the bundles, Nintendo will certainly clear this up at their upcoming press conference. The decision to offer three different bundles right out of the gate is an interesting one, and everyone will be watching to see if it works for Nintendo. The three price points should help those who are not sure about the system to get a taste of it at a much lower entry level price.
