Nintendo Wii U listed at $598

Although the price for the Nintendo Wii hasn't been set, EB Games Australia has listed an estimate for the console at $598 in Australian dollars. Converted to American dollars, that's roughly $633.00, which is substantially more than the most expensive models of the PS3 and Xbox 360. By console, that's $200 more than a top-of-the-line Xbox 360 Kinect bundle, $200 more than a PS3 Move kit, and roughly $450 more than a new Nintendo Wii.

Take that with a grain of salt, though -- early retail estimates don't always tell the whole story, and to us, that sounds exceptionally pricey.
