RUMOR – GamePads Cost $85
Twitter user ‘zmiller1902‘ recently sent in his GamePad back to Nintendo due to a defective ZL button. The interesting part is when Nintendo sent him a new GamePad they also included an invoice that showed the cost of the GamePad. The invoice stated that the GamePad costs $85. Could this be the cost of a new GamePad? The answer is probably yes but I imagine that this is what it costs Nintendo. When individual GamePads hit retail store shelves I would expect the price to be slightly higher than this price that is quoted on Mr. zmiller1902’s invoice. If I had to venture a guess, I would say that the retail price for a GamePad will probably be $100.
@jonnymetts NoA sent me an invoice, too. New GamePad costs $85.
