If this ends up being the case nintendo will have to lower the cost of the wii u $100 or more because honestly who will choose the wii u over the next playstation or xbox when they are almost the same price? I will also have to buy both consoles day 1

was this written by Patcher or does it actually have the possibility of being true?

what stifles the credibility of these guys somewhat IMO is that they suggested that Nintendo will release their games on other systems as well, which is ludicrous. this is never going to happen.

The hardware biz isn't profitable if you're not selling a lot of systems. If you have major first party franchises it's better to maximize software sales by going third party.

This whole thread is filled with idiocy. And it's not very big yet.

I call fake for the time being. In fact I call all rumours fake until you get word from the horses mouth.

What will be the point of buying a new xbox or ps? Playing shooters with slightly better graphics??
#7excitebike64Posted 1/14/2013 11:56:51 AM
400 with no games, and a need to buy extras.

I'm sure 400 for a basic model is possible. But to get the goods, 500 dollars is still likely for deluxe anything.

Yeah, that's exactly all there is to it.



... If you can even call that a point, heh. Not worth it for someone like me.

A difference of $100 is "almost the same price"? Exactly how wealthy are you?

This. Even $50 is a sizable difference when it comes to selling an item, especially electronics. $100 is food for an entire 2-3 weeks for me. That's quite a bit to just throw out.
