I told my buddy Wii U isn't selling well. He was like "wow wish I had $350.....

#1knightimexPosted 12/14/2012 9:10:38 PM
Readily available at any given time.
I mean money these days must not be growing as fast as it used t be"

Then he added...

It's $350 F***ing dollars NOT including anything you want that's extra.
Do these (serious edit due to potential extreme moderation name calling) kids think everyone has $350 available at any given time?

Food for thanksgiving?
No screw that lets get a wii u instead.

I only have $350 for Xmas shopping..... we can all share right?
no, and dumb.


We both agree that video games will ALWAYS take a back seat to some degree during the holidays.

Also not enough worthy games are out for it yet that and the console hasn't had ANY time to mature.

People need to slow down with the wii u.
If nothing good comes from with in a year then it's bad news for Nintendo.

(not going to be bad news though)

I don't see how it's overpriced in any way shape or form. If you think about it, a gpu is usually what ~100 bucks, a cpu same plus everything else AND the gamepad. 350 isn't a lot especially for a new system.

Oh, by the way it's selling just fine.

$350 is perfectly reasonable for a launch console. If I had interest in one, I'd have it by now.

As far as 'money growing as fast' as it used to, for me personally not much has changed at all. Some things are definitely more expensive
these days (food and gas mainly), but not so much that if you could afford it 5 years ago you couldn't now. Your friend is just broke and jelly.

Or he has a job and pays bills......
Wait until you have to live on your own....
That one job doesn't grant you vast fortune like you want to believe.

He makes $11hr.
Not everyone can be doctors, managers, and presidents either.

You know what I find hypocritical?
They say "Wii U is overpriced" yet when we talk about what the next Xbox or PS are gonna cost, they go:
"NO! They could make a $300 or $400 dollar console that would smoke the Wii U DURRRRRR"
