A few details surfaced today about the Wii U. Seems it has a release time frame sometime between November and March. Price tag will be $299 for the basic unit and $350 for the deluxe set. [more info]
When I first read the price I immediately thought "Eww. That's too much". When I think about it in terms of other things I've purchased, it absolutely is not. I guess the feeling of it being "too expensive" extends from the impact the economy has had on the game industry lately. Investor uncertainty, studio closures, mass layoffs, slumping sales in the core games sale market. I do have some concerns over how it will stand up to the next generation of Microsoft and Sony consoles. We'll just have to wait and see on that one.
Some of you expressed curiosity over the projects I'm working on. One is a card game of my own design. You can blame Kickstarter for my interest in pursuing that one. The other, I'm not quite ready to reveal yet. Only a handful of people really know about it yet. So you'll have to wait a bit longer. Sorry.
