Yesterday, game company Nintendo made a huge announcement concerning the release date and pricing for their next generation console, the Wii U.  The game system will hit retailers just in time for the holidays with a November 18th release. As far as the cost goes, the white version will be $299, while the black will go for $349. Both versions will have the Wii U console, GamePad, AC adapter, the Wii U sensor bar, and a high-speed HDMI cable. So what’s the difference between the Basic Set (white,) and the Deluxe Set (black?) The white version will have 8GB of storage space, while the black version will have 32GB, plus additional accessories and the Nintendo Land video game.

The price of the system seems considerably high, even though Nintendo is known to keep its prices reasonable. When the Nintendo Wii launched six years ago in the US, it retailed for $249.99.

The Wii U will also be getting Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive.

Fifty games will be released during the launch window, starting in November and ending in March, 2013.
