LIVE: Nintendo Direct Sees Wii U Dated And Priced For EU/NA

We had a slew of details from the Japanese video this morning as Nintendo detailed their Japanese release plans for the Wii U, and now at 3pm BST it'll be the West's turn.

North American fans can tune in here, but we've got the livestream for the European video right here onsite. This morning's figures put the price of the Premium console around the £250 mark, but as is so often the case, console lauches often completely ignore exchange rates, so figures crossed that number doesn't go much higher.

You'll be able to keep up with the news bulletins right here, and we'll be doing a PWNcast Extra to discuss the announcements to air later this week.

EU's premium version includes Nintendoland...
Nice bonus. Depending on price, of course...

Did they mention price?
I watched almost the full thing but must've missed that - if it was mentioned.

They did not. Istead referred gamers to retailers, which was a bit odd, considering that they were only too happy to give the nod to the US. Probably quibbling about it. We reckon that we're looking at £250-£270 for the Premium.

In all seriousness, that was probably the best Nintendo presentation I've ever seen - just in terms of the games alone (and the fact that they didn't try to be funny - just factual). It would have been nice if we'd seen some of this stuff (Bayonetta 2 yessssssssss) at E3 or even GC.

But we need a price.
