    * Nintendo won't reveal the Wii U Price nor the console Launch Date at this E3. However the console IS having a worldwide launch this year.

    * And finally, Nintendo wants a Wii Sports equivalent on Wii U, can't talk about it now for competitive reasons, will not remodel existing (game?).

    Well, overall good news!

      nintendo never release their specs, that is a fact.

      nintedo dont release the unit price of their hardware until close to the launch on a regional basis, they stopped doing that at the n64 launch because economies fluctuate and whilst right now the us and eu prices would be high in 6 months when it launches the yen may not be as strong against the $/£/€ and so a better price could be announced, this is also a fact.

      however although its too late now as all preorders are sold out you could have preordered at zavvi in the uk for the price of £399.99 (price subject to change), uk launch price is expected to be around £300 (and sickeningly around $300 in the usa).

      e3 2012 is for the (re)launch of their new console (possibly unveiling its new name) and what you can do with it, that way people can decide if they would like to buy one, when the price is announced then its up to the individual if they think its worth the money. but if you want the first hint of pricing i'd think that you should look to the pre tgs conference later this year and subsequent press conferences in the usa and europe.
