Nintendo continues to be in the news for all the wrong reasons. The Wii U has been rumored to be launching at $299.99 price point. There is some speculation that this figure could be higher. Nintendo has already had a bad experience at launching products at a high price point. It took only six months for the 3DS to get a $70.00 price drop, will the Wii U suffer the same fate? Hopefully, the godfather of gaming can get some good news soon.
