E3 was just last week, but rumors about one of the most hoped for announcement have already begun populating the web. Both the price and release date for Nintendo’s Wii U have supposedly been leaked. Online retail outlet ShopTo lists the console itself for £280, which averages out to $435. It is worth noting that most consoles sell for cheaper outside the EU, often times retailing at the same amount of dollars for euros as Sony’s Playstation Vita did, so a $280 price tag may not be out of the question. Software titles like ZombiU were also listed at £40 ($62).
Leaked Nintendo Gamer scans (via Eurogamer) may have also transitively leaked the release date for the Big N’s next hardware. Advertising a Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for the system, the reported release window for the game – and thus the console – sits sometime this November. Nintendo has previously suggested it wanted to get the Wii U out before Christmas, but has no made announcements beyond that. The scans do appear to recycle screenshots already used to promo other versions of the game.
