Will likely be EUR250 or £150 for us PAL people too, so all is well. Or, in other terms, 2 1/2 Wiis= 1 PS3. :-p
They went over 200.
They said it wouldnt be over 250.
That’s better than 600, so I’ll prolly save up some cash someday.
Well, next generation in name only But still, i’ll be getting one on launch day. 250 isn’t bad, but i was hoping they’d pull a dreamcast, and make it 199.99USD
Yep just as acspected. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Wasn’t this proven to be 250$ at like E3?
Proven? By whom? And no, it wasn’t “proven”, it was rumored to be 250USD, but this is the official announcement.
Lower prices? Wii! (Yes, I feel that corny.)
Pull a dreamcast? I.e. stop producing consoles?
Have a price point lower than 200USD at launch.
more like “oui” amirite
Hasn’t every Nintendo system been $199.99 at launch?
I know, I was joking.
Yes, aside from the NES, which was $299 at it’s initial launch in NY and other select markets, and dropped to $249 at it’s nationwide launch with an optional “Action Pak” available for $199 if you didn’t want your robot.
I’d have had no problem paying whatever amount, I just thought it was a cool tradition.
It would be hard to keep that tradition up considering the prices of gas, technology, and creating a new slim likeable look.
gas in venezuela is like 0.02$ a liter
And free if you’re royalty in Saudi Arabia. (doh)
