It looks like it has been confirmed by Satoru Iwata that the Revolution will be released for less than $299. We all assumed as much anyhow, so this really isn’t shocking news. Still, after Christmas, there’s little news even worth reporting, and given how much of a Nintendo fan that I am, it’s only appropriate that I spread this wealth of information to the masses.
I still think that the rumored $99 launch price is highly unlikely. My personal guess is $199, which is still a great deal for what the system will be capable of doing. Of course, they could charge $499.99 for it and I’d still buy it at launch. Don’t tell Nintendo that though. 😉
