Ah the exchange rate...so reliably ignored by console manufacturers. Nintendo completely failed to announce a price point for the Wii U during their Nintendo Direct broadcast earlier today, but early retailer pricing is putting the Basic package around the £250 mark, with the Premium pack up around £280-300, and the ZombiU bundle at about £320.
Tesco have already gone live with pre-order prices at £249, £299, and £329 respectively and MCV have apparently spoken to a couple of "high end UK retailers" who've suggested price ranges for the three packs:
MCV understands the trade price for the Basic Pack is £205, the Premium Pack has a trade cost of £246 and the ZombiU version (which includes the Premium Pack and a copy of Ubisoft's horror shooter ZombiU) has a cost price of £270.
One of the sources said he expects the retail prices to stick at around £250 for the Basic unit, £290 - £300 for the Premium unit and £330 for the ZombiU set.
Meanwhile, the retail games have an RRP of around £50.
Some of our network's own sources suggest that tomorrow may well see price reveals from a number of other retailers.
For the moment, SimplyGames have listed the Basic and Premium packs at £209.99 and £249.99 respectively, similar to the price point Gamestation is rumoured to be readying for announcement, but there are no pre-order options for either there as yet. Big purple overlord GAME are only taking £20 deposits at this time, with no word on an official price yet.
EDIT: Amazon.co.uk have listed the Basic at £249.99 and the Premium at £284.99
