The Wii U will be available in two different models: a Basic Set and a Deluxe version.

Nintendo announced price, launch and system details concerning its new Wii U console today -- and U.S./Japan residents will soon be able to get their hands on it. 
 
Nintendo fans can expect two different Wii U models: a Deluxe version and a Basic Set version. The Basic Set features 8 GB HDD, a Wii U Pad controller and it in comes in white. The Deluxe model, on the other hand, offers 32 GB HDD, a Wii U Pad controller, power cradles for the Wii U Pad, an HDMI cable and it comes in black. 
 
Some extras that Nintendo fans can look forward to include a separate controller called the Wii U Pro, which resembles an Xbox 360 controller; 25 GB game discs; Wii U's social network Mii Universe, and the system itself is backwards compatible with the original Wii console. 
 
The launch titles for Wii U are "Nintendoland" and the "New Super Mario Bros." 
 
Looking to pick up a Basic Set? It'll cost you $299.99. Or, if you're looking to go all out with the Deluxe model, Nintendo will hit your wallet for $349.99. 
 
Wii U will hit the U.S. on November 18 while those in Japan will have to wait until December 8.

I can't argue with that. I do believe however that Nintendo played the 7th (current) generation console war the smartest.

They are releasing two consoles in the same time the competition released one; will sell both from day one with profitability on the hardware; sell both at an acceptable launch price that people are willing to buy (remember "599 U.S. Dollars!" anyone?); do not have to over-extend the life period of the console (Sony wanted the PS3 to last for "10 years" ... realistically not feasible) in order to feel like they didn't take a massive hit on the bleeding edge hardware.

That being said, I don't even own a Wii, but I've owned two 360's (RROD on first) and a PS3 slim. Still, I tip my hat to Nintendo. I might even buy a Wii U sometime in 2013.
