I’m not sure if you’ve looked at your watch or a calendar lately, but we’re starting to get uncomfortably close to the Holiday season, and we’re still without an exact release date or price point for Nintendo’s new console, the Wii U. But wait, what’s this? Breaking news! Nintendo has commented on the pricing structure for the system — it will release this Holiday season for…a “reasonable price.” Wait, what?

That from Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata in a recent interview. But hey — what exactly is reasonable? According to the interview source, $30,000 Yen would be the break-even price for Nintendo, which translated to almost $380, but it’s important to note that the conversions never really work out 100%.

So, what would you pay for Nintendo’s new console?
