Post Wii U: Priced and Dated
November 18th. 8GB will cost you $300, 16GB (which also includes Nintendo Land and a gamepad charger) will be $350.

But most importantly, Nintendo announced that Bayonetta 2 will be a Wii U launch exclusive! That might be reason enough to buy a Wii U right there. The first Bayonetta is a very underrated game.

A perfect price and solid launch titles. I wish Nintendo had one other major title ready by year's end, though.

The next Smash Bros. game seems to be nearing completion, so maybe we'll see it before the end of the Wii U's first year.

I think next year E3 will be one of the best in ages:

Smash Bros 4
Zelda U
Mario Galaxy 3 or a new Mario in 3D
Metroid HD
Donkey Kong Country 5 HD

I'd like to see a sequel to Donkey Kong 64 over another DK Country. Open world Donkey Kong was so much fun.

The problem is, Rare left for Microsoft. Without Rare you won't get a DK game in the same style of DK 64.

Why not? Rare basically just made numerous variations of Mario 64.

Retro Studios did an outstanding job with the franchise, I don't see how they can't do something similar to a 3D DK, the only problem would be the absence of the Kremlings and King K. Rool

It's not confirmed, but I'm willing to believe it. It's been rumored for months, and Nintendo hasn't denied anything as far as I know. This retail listing only increased the likelihood.

Pre-orders are sold out just about everywhere now. You might get lucky and find the basic model somewhere, though. Just not at Gamestop.

I went to my local store today to see if they had any deluxe pre-orders still available and the clerk said, "No. We sold out of them in 37 hours and have stopped pre-orders on the basic model as well." He then explained Gamestop's Wait List for PowerUp Reward Members. Basically, you sign up and they'll contact you when a console is available for pre-order or purchase. Thankfully, he said I was the sixth person to sign up at their location meaning there's a pretty good chance one would be available by year's end.

It's a vicious cycle. Every type of gamer thinks they're better than their counterpart. Whether it be XBox/PS3/Nintendo/Computer/Handheld.

I have a gaming MacBook, a PS3, and a Wii.

Clearly, I'm better than all of you.
