Wii U's launch price has been discussed by Nintendo at E3 2011.
President Satoru Iwata said that the console will "likely" cost more than ¥20,000 ($250 / £152), according to Nikkei (via Bloomberg).
However, previous Nintendo consoles have seen UK pricing above the direct currency conversion, suggesting a price point closer to £200 after tax.
