Amazon's distributor, Video Product Distributors, has listed in November 11, 2012, release dates for the new Wii U console in one of three different bundles that will be offered.
While no details are really given in the listing, it is a password-protected website for only retailers, like Amazon, and listed a bundle for $250, $300, and $350. Nintendo never has had a multiple-SKU launch on a console before. This would definitely be a departure for them. But with the high costs probably associated with the new tablet console, this type of pricing could be realistic.
Nintendo has no comment on the matter. Game stop has previously said that the console would be available on November 18 of this year. We'll have to wait and get confirmation from Nintendo from an event they have planned.
