Toys'R'Us in Australia are now taking pre-orders for the Wii at US$249, and that will include an unspecified free game! Could Nintendo be including Wii Sports as so many have speculated?
they come out with a pink Wii... that way I can buy it for my wife, and she'll actually think I got it for her! Moohaha!!!
I told you all the price would be 250 because of the many accessories their including and guess what. Two sources now say it'll be 250, so there.
Also when the 360 price drops, which it will but you can't announce such things, the difference between a Wii and a Premium will be pretty small I think. The reason they'll deny the drop is because they don't want people to stop buying 360's and wait until christmas or whenever.
I think nintendo's reason to not be as powerful as the PS3 and the XBox 360 it's not worth $50 less than the 360. Nintendo always want to make 2 times what they spend making a console.
To hell with this console
you don't have to like it or want it... but I believe it is backwards compatible with the Game Cube, which has a few cool games on it... and it can download, NES and SNES games!
Like Nintendo have mentioned themselves, they are not included in the console war between Sony and MS. They are out there on there own.
Although Nintendo say this, they will definatly be in there with the big boys when this console is released, and Nintendo could be the dark horse.
They are offering there console at a really cheap price. They are offering something COMPLETLY different to what MS and Sony are offering (Sony's 6 point crap doesn't count). Now they are going to package a game FREE with the console?
A console maker hasn't included a free game from launch since the original SNES. PS1 & PS2 offered Demo's discs, but even those now have gone astray!
Plus, if Nintendo are offering other colours like Pink (which will attract the ladies), they are going to sell quite a few.
IF nintendo can get a good backing from game developers, and keep up regular releases and good ones, it will do well.
I can't wait to have a Wii next to my TV!! Errr..hmm!
Monk i think I usually agree with you on things but I just have something to add.
" They are offering there console at a really cheap price"
Once the 360 drops in price this year that'll all change. The core could even be lower than 250. It's already 50 bucks more. Nintendo would be in big trouble, although people who would buy a Wii are already a fanbase so it doesn't immediately matter.
