RUMOR - Best Buy says Wii U preorders start industry-wide in September

This is from our anonymous source that also happened to discuss the Wii U preorders of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 at Best Buy. This image supposedly comes from Best Buy's, employee newsletter.



Looks like we can expect that Wii U release date/price point announcement very soon!

That sounds about right. Now we need to know the price - I still say $299 with Nintendo Land packed in...

I'm actually leaning Towards 2 SKU's.
Both at $299:
White WiiU with Gamepad & Wiimote/Nunchuck
Black WiiU with Gamepad & Pro Controller

Market survey my local Nintendo Rep asks from me actually delt with color preferences, seeing as Mainstream (Casual) gamers prefer the Motion and the Tradition (Core) gamers prefer the Dual Analog controllers.

I'll just wait to hear it from the horse's mouth.

Sounds accurate enough, although I'm slightly skeptical about it due to the whole 'anonymous source' thing.

If it's on Best Buy's employee news, you could always just check with your local Best Buy gaming department, it would be their public knowledge. Remember their news article is how Assassin's Creed 3 Setting and protagonist was leaked.

@Tradint2000

That would be an interesting selection, if true. I'd definitely still choose the black WiiU. I don't need any more Wiimotes and I prefer the color.

The thing i hope for most though is that they put out as many as possible, i dont want to hear about that intentional short supply on purpose BS again.
