Best Buy Canada now has listings of PS3 and Wii games. $70 for a Wii game and $75 for a PS3 game. I thought Wii games were supposed to be cheap...
I dont think this is true
its ok games will work out to be £35-£45 which is ok or even if they are not i can import games for ps3 whuch will work out cheeper.( i will need to learn japaneese first=)
those prices are in canadian dollars = $60 to $65 american dollars.
Not bad not good
Seems like its not enough to hurt either company but I still would have liked cheaper, especially for the Wii games.
Exchange rate is US$1.00 to LU$1.16
Wii games should be like 35$; Especially if 4 games outweight what the system is basically worth.
That's about US$61 for the Wii games and US$65 or so for the PS3.
Edit: beaten by seconds!
It could be true but isn't Best Buy the same people who are taking reserves for Final Fantasy VII and Halo 3 leaving rumors that both games will be released this year? But it does appear to be a Best Buy web site.
i expect $70-$80 games at launch in the USA...
If games are $70-$75 in canada the will be $60-$65 in the US but we will have to wait and see.
thats if you base the price on the the title as an import- the rrp for games will vary in different countries. for canada it is $70, if you buy it and have it imported thats like $60, but if you go to your local walmart in december you may find US PS3 games for $70-$75...
Wii is not a bargon for $250 bucks if people are going bankrupt buying games though out it's life span. these games are to close to 100 dollars and gamers will not be happy. Dev's will go to the companies that sell games like hot cakes. I think all three companies will be neck to neck in terms of fanbase. these two companies better pray this is not true.
The games are a whole total of $3 more then 360 games but the the 360 is $399. It would take quite a few games to even out the price. And thats only if this site is right.
somewhat true bishop...any game released by M$ is only $49.99.
If These prices turn up on other online stores I might believe it. But at the moment, I consider nintendo's whole 'going dark' philosophy and conclude that those prices are probably poop.
An Sony REP has already prepared the world that they're going to sell PS3 games a little more than MS's $60 dollar games a but they should'nt exceed 1 tenth of a grand lol.
No he said he does not expect the games to be more than 59.99 he never said they were going to cost more than xflop 1.5 games.
Kaz said that he doesn't expect them to be 100, but may be more than 60
Expect top notch PS3 games to be $10 to $15 more for the simple reason that Sony can just like MS/Bungie selling Halo 2 for $30 STILL!!!.
"In COMPUSA.com there are 2 PS3 games for sale and have the release date and the prices to each one.
FULL AUTO 2: BATTLELINES by SEGA. est. ship date: 11/22/06 $58.99"
I remember reading something that said that Wii games will be similar to the price of gamecube games at launch. Plus, if PS3 games are 58.99 then Wii games will be 50, maybe 55 at the most.
max 70 dollars plus tax its a blue ray disk and sony need the money from some where to justify alot of people not buying there system becouse of 600 price tag 600 plus 70 agame alot of money plus accesories thats my rent and food for a month and gas n electric telephone for a month
Just release the console with the games - im talking the wii and ps3, all these price need confirmation then ill see what to get.
you keep saying xflop1.5 which is funny, for me ill be getting a wii and ps3 at launch i already got a 360 which i like.
gametime need to look at this game and he will see that xflop1.5 is powerfull enough to be a next gen console.
Here is the link gametime and watch it over and over because yull like it.
Wow another alien based shooter for xflop 1.5.
If its xflop1.5 but its games look better than ps3s then what does that make ps3? A PSZero or sumtin? lol
Please stop posting these pathetic xbot games because no one cares about them.
I'm guessing by pathetic you mean E3 award winning games that look good as hell, make ps3 games look like like sh!t and make you wanna cry in your little 12 year old fanboy ways.
I like your picture because ive played killzone on the ps2 which was ok.
gametime is very funny.
anyway i aint got time for you and your crap.
All next gen consoles for me.
If you go to BestBuy.com (US Version) and type PS3 in the search, you'll find that the pre-order prices are $60. And if you do it for Wii, you'll find that they are currently at $50 =)
Average 360 game is $69.99 Canadian right now.
Some are less ( $49.99 ) and the original release stuff can be had at Walmart new for $35
All in Canadian Dollars
If you go to the AMERICAN best buy they are what 59.99... My guess is THEY DONT KNOW like the rest of the world.
they both cost alot.
it would be cheaper to import
wow, $70 for a wii game is much higher than i expected. Especially when you look at the graphics of the game. But still, graphics isnt everything. The gameplay would have to be good to live up to this price. But hey, this isnt official so it may not be true.
yeah 360 in US are 59.99 from 3rd party
and 49.99 for games from M$.
i thougt Wii was going to beat everyone in price. by the time you enter 2 to 3 years in the systems life span you have spent more money then if you bought a 360.
i guess if you get the 360, in the long run you will spend less money. M$ has to be loving this.
that is if every one uses their head and realizes this.
Ive think I read an article in IGN in which Nintendo president spoke that if the Wii is too cheap, the consumer may think it is the worst system of the three. So if Nintendo president think that, I believe the Wii is not goig to be cheap. Neither its games. After all buying the system, the peripherals needed, their "revolutionary" internet service, their downloadable content and past generation games. It could end costing the same or even more than the 360. Who knows maybe Nintendo try to imitate Sony. Im my opinion I dont feel good buying a system that only offers a better way to control games, and have worst graphics than my XBOX. But thst just me dont take it personal guys.
If games cost more than 60 dollars, the game industry will CRASH. 1984 happened and we gamers can do it again. You have been warned GAME CONSOLE MAKERS. 75 dollars will kill the industry.
don't trust Bestbuy with these unconfirmed price. a couple of months ago, Bestbuy listed FF6 remake for the PS3! yes, the PS3 not the PS1. it's been taken off the listing already though.
LOL you should say this to your xrat babybrothers ;-) I'm not acting, I'm just reacting to all this ridiculous xrat $hit. Them girls just can't let it go, sheesh they are way too desperate.
Not you, not me, not any of the the other gamers out there other than the SELECT FEW.
Reason being ..... we have not seen the PS3 in action or actually played any of the games for ourselves.
Till we get the "FINISHED PRODUCT" in our hands ... try to keep you Hollow comments to a minimum. Better yet ... keep them to yourself.
In which I only said the truth. Name me just 1 of your 2nd gen games that makes 1st gen PS3 games like UT07 or Heavenly Sword or Assassin's Creed look like crap.
And how did 1.5 games look at e305? Like a total crap, you can't even compare it to e306 PS3 games. Facts is 1.5 devs didn't work most of the time on final kits back then, fact is PS3 devs didn't even touch a final kit before the e306 and they still can deliver graphics on 2nd gen 1.5 level.
lol easy on them..we don wanna break a few hearts before november do we..
You probably right, but to hell with it, I'm the bloodthirsty Terminator LOL
gears of war makes all those games look like crap. there you go, it cleaned up at e3.
LOL the typical Xbug without a brain. I'll make it easy for you: Gears of War only won cause Epic and Ubisoft didn't show too much of their main titles at e3.
Xbug, look up some screens before you run your mouth ;-)
i think gow is far too overhyped. can you remember pariah from epic ? better not. have you seen the new screenshots of GOW, better not. and if you would see that this game is overhyped. the graphic will not be so good like in the trailers. and the gameplay could be boring. so stop talking about gow, you know nothing about this game.
if wii x2 powerful as gamecube then it should
cost £160 because a cube is £79
shiner games aint worth that much
wouldnt the Wii be 2x the price of the lanuch date of the gamecube? just putting it out there
You Americans are sooooo DUMB!!! who cares how much it cost the playstation will be worth the price because it is a japanese product..Have any of you ever seen any good product come out of America and dont tell me xbox because it sucks! I bet Iraq could make a console better then you guys.Not only do you not know how to make a good console you dont know how to make any good product even your cars suck! Plain and simple PS3 will have no problem selling here in Japan we all know the Americans xbob360 sucks a$$ and will never sell here so keep talkin all the trash you want about it..It will not stop the power of PS3
LOL that's a little harsh, but you are right, US cars [email protected] BTW I don't know anyone that own a 360, everyone is waiting for the PS3, even the Xflop owners I know LOL
dont be hating on america just becuz we have better technology and a bigger country.. PS3 will NOT do as well as the 360 becuz all of the kick A$$ games coming up all the japanesse dudes play RPG becuz they hate hardcore FPS (scardies) so cya and dont let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya =) have a nice day
$600 dollars plus the $70 to $75 games is way too expensive, not even the latest PC games(which could be upgraded with better graphics and physics than any console on the planet)cost that much. There could be bad games for that much, which could be a waste of money. So what if it was made by Japan. Not everything in Japan is good so don't think that Japanese product are always better everything in the world. Apple beat Sony in the MP3 player wars with the ipod, and that's a fact. Now there is a possibility that Xbox360 can beat PS3 in the console wars with the best game line-up in the history of gaming. You should very well know that Sony copy-off some ideas from other companies to make a hybrid out of the PS3. I'm not saying that it's a bad system, but making it too expensive for everybody expect rich people won't make them the market leader. Smart people like me will wait until 2007 where the prices could be low, and the better games like Metal Gear Soild 4 will come out with a bang. Early adapters like you will wait out in line, in the rain or snow only to get a broken PS3 with red lights. Who is the dumb one now!!!
doesnt matter i plan on buyin all 3 consoles
i think you are a little to harsh. i dont think all americans are dumb. but some of them are loco. like in every country. and their cars sucks, thats right. in my opinion japanses electronics is still the best in the world noone can beat it.
This is the typical form of Japanese racism. Everything we make is superior... garbage. All parts for all machines are made in the same countries. Furthermore, a company is only as good as it's employees, and no company only employs from one nation.. for a reason.
1-5 dollars more, me personally i dont give a [email protected]
America has no where near the technology we have and the products we put out prove my point..Even Americans will buy our stuff way before they even think about purchasing anything that is American made because they know our tec puts Americas tec to shame....Sory to say but you guy's are just DUMB
ur just a miserable racist pig!!
i think the 360 will beat the ps3 but in the end i will have both systems and a Wii...so lets make peace ok? (its just my opinion)
no need for consoles to turn ppl into racist trash
Iam not racist just tellin it how it is so go spread your lies some where else.
your comments about america are racist you moron.
to correct you theLandsofSand: it is not rassistic, because America is not a race, there live many races, and for sure his race, so he would insult himself.
He does have a point. USA isn't just predominately white anymore, hell there's more Mexicans than anything else.
um, no, you idiots he makes a generalisation about a group of people, americans, which is prejudiced and racist.
we aren't discussing technical english here.
I believe it's just plain old stereotyping
Nobody likes to find out they are stupid..But somebody has to tell them the truth...And again Iam not being racist just pointing out you guys have yet to put out any product that sells like japanese products. The sales of the PS3 will prove my point nothing good comes out of America...So if you think Iam being racist then I guess all Japanese are racist because we all know that you guys just dont have the tec we do.And that is why none of us will even touch the xbox. Where it was made tells us enough....So take it how ever you want
well the PS3 was created in ken kuturagi's nightmares, that tells me alot!
you hate america, you know nothing of gaming if you ignore western developers and technology. so get back to your cartoon porn while the grown ups discuss the endless PS3 tech problems and development.
Basally wat uv said is that "all Japanese are genius and all Americans are retards" - tell me how that's not racist! What ever happened to "all men are equal?!" - who the #%$@ do u think u r to judge?!
its not racist because it is true!!!!! dont be mad at us because your country does not know how to do crap!
