The big thought on everyone's mind has been the what final asking price for Nintendo's plunge into the next-gen market will be. Given the sturdy price of \$400 for a loaded Xbox 360, and the accusedly steep price of \$600 for a decked out PS3, Nintendo is in a prime spot to come in way below the competition with an extremely affordable next-gen console. It was previously announced that the Wii would come in at \$250 or below in the US - a real steal for the highly-praised revolutionary console - totally decimating the other price ranges.
But did Nintendo set the bar too low? Could they get the same amount of sales at a slightly higher price? Well if our information is correct, Nintendo may be counting on it.
I'd get last generations hardware with a new controller for $200, but for $300 I might aswell just put that towards a PS3.
lol nintendo is [email protected] ..who`s gonna buy a ps3 then a Wii..i like it ..just like i said 2 weeks after E3 i`m loosing interest in this over hype wii thing ..
50 dollars actually makes a difference in my mind. I was all set to buy one at release, regardless of games. But 300 makes me take a step back; I'll wait to see the games.
if this price is accurate or close, then no, you can't use the arguement of "i can get a 360 and a Wii for the price of a PS3." haha anyway, $300 isn't that bad. i'll still buy the Wii anyway.
because i just can't.
