Speaking exclusively to GamesIndustry.biz, executive VP and COO of EA's worldwide studios, David Gardner, has revealed that the publisher believes the console will retail for around US $170 in North America.
damn! a pricetag of $200 was beyond good enough, but $170?!? amazing. this is still just rumors though.
Nintendo continues to deliver.
the console if it is 170, is a cheap ass bargain. first time nintendo been up on the top bit of the page...and y is ea anouncing it? shouldn't it be nintendo.
Well the rumor started a while ago that the Nintendo would cost around 170US in Japan and were merely bringing the same price to the US. Fact that its coming from a real publisher actually gives some credibility to the rumor, albeit, its a rumor until Nintendo confirms it.
I think the price is right. Even at that price; I'm sure Nintendo is making a profit; they are not known to sell consoles cheaper than its production cost. Besides you don't have to be a genius to see this; how much hardware can you fit in that tiny box? I just hope Nintendo makes enough; this will sell like hot cakes.
While everyone is selling a next gen console at a high cost Nindy is selling a current gen console with a twist at a current gen price. :P How can you go wrong?
I'm saving for Wii with my second job then...
Imagine that. 170 Euro/dollar. And the 360 Premium already in an action for 350 Euro/dollar. That makes 520 euro/dollar for Wii60 and a single PS3 non retarded version sets you back 80 dollars more then that combination. For real. Even when price of 360 Premium is 400, still cheaper and more fun. Man I am gonna get a Wii instantly for this price!
Both versions of the PS3 are retarded.
At that price the Wii will outsell everything this holiday season! I'll take 2 please.
1 wii, mario galaxy, metroid, zelda and a couple of controllers...sweet
i will get a wii and a ps3, forget the the 360 the games take too long to come out and i will be stuck with retarted live arcade games for months untill something decent comes out. and 90% of 360 games will come out eventually on pc so PS3 AND WII FOR ME.( can't wait for the new super smash bros)
ps3 and wii for me. ms should die with its crapbox.
I dont think I can afford one still... you see business has been bad and all...
