The Australian EB Games website has a page up for Nintendo's Wii U. There's even a pre-order page with an estimated RRP price of $598, which would be over $600 USD. There's no other release information other than a 2012 date.
Another page at the retailer's site has several games listed. It's generic franchise names and logos, just as they were presented in Nintendo's E3 press conference. Want to reserve a few games along with your $600 Wii U? That will be $108 AUD a piece, please.
Too soon, EB Games. Too soon.
