Wishes it was less expensive.
According to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, the Wii U is 'expensive', and hopes it'll get cheaper before too long...
In an interview with Games Industry International, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said he is not pleased with the pricing Nintendo decided on for the Wii U and hopes for a price drop soon...
Do you agree with him? Or are you getting one anyway when it launches at the end of the month?"I always prefer lower pricing, so I can't say I'm happy," Guillemot said.
"I'm never happy when the machines are expensive. What we have to do there is remember that compared to an iPad, it's cheap. With what it brings [to the gaming table] it's cheap. But I hope they'll be able to drop their price in time."
Remember, the Wii U is due out in North America this Sunday November 18 beginning at $300 for its 8GB Basic model and scaling to $350 for the 32GB Deluxe version with copy of Nintendo Land. The Wii U comes to Europe and Australia on November 30, with a launch in Japan rounding out the bunch on December 8.
