Nintendo talks UK price for Wii

It'll be in line with US and Japan.

A Nintendo spokesperson has confirmed that the Wii will cost us UK gamers roughly the same as our American and Japanese counterparts.

Yesterday, Nintendo announced that the Wii will cost 25,000 or less and $250 or less when it goes on sale later this year - the equivalent of around 120 and 135. A spokesperson has since told our sister site,, that "UK pricing will be in line with Japan and the US."

But chances are it'll be a bit more expensive, thanks to the UK's crazy old VAT rules - our money's on a price point of around 150.

Nintendo has confirmed plans to ship 6 million Wii units by the end of March 2007 - but as yet, there's no word on exactly how many the UK will be getting.
