Wallets at the ready

Nintendo has said that the Wii U release date and price announcements will come after E3, but Japanese newspaper Nikkei (via Andriasang) believes we could hear as soon as tomorrow.

The paper — which has a proven track record in getting this information right — claims the machine will sell for 30,000 Yen. That's around £249, $383 or €306.

Nikkei also claims Wii U will play host to plenty of non-gaming content, including a car navigator, digital books and a karaoke service. We're not quite sure what a car navigator means, particularly considering the GamePad needs to be near the console to function, but if it's true we'll hear more soon.

What do you make of this potential Wii U price, and do you think we'll hear a price announcement tomorrow?
