they're going to wait a year to drop the price and no one is going to want it. no one wants it at the current prices, this thing will have a hell of a time competing with the new xbox and ps


3 million in 2 months isnt bad. They are predicting a profit this year. The next xbox and ps could be crap, no one knows the specs or the price. People who assume stuff like this are really ignorant to reality. Wii out sold all of them last gen and wii u might just do it again. Sony wont be selling a $800 unit for $600 again because they cant afford to take a loss, they only have so much real estate.

Nintendo sells a console for cheaper price than PS3's launch people complain.

The Wii U only seems expensive because its competitors haven't released yet.

PS3 launched in 2006......Wii U launched 6, almost 7 years later with similarly powered hardware and at the current time is more expensive than said PS3.

People need to learn that the Wii U isn't similarly powered and has the wireless Gamepad.

I was not aware the actual specs of the custom harware were release. Could you please put a link to your source? Or are you just another pathetic troll or someone who just knows nothing about technology.

People seem to be missing one crucial point. The Wii U is about $150-200 woth of hardware bundled with a $150-200 controller. The Wii U is overpriced and it's the controller's fault.

The controller makes it all worth while. So when sony copies it with their high end stuff how much will theirs be $800

The PS3 was a bargain at $500-600 since stand alone Blu-ray players at the time were $1000. Do any of you people own a stand alone player? Did you get it for under $200? Maybe even under $100? You have the PS3 to thank for that. Without the mass production of Blu-ray drives to go into those millions of PS3s, the price to manufacture those drives wouldn't have dropped nearly as fast. The format might not have hit mass market. You'd still be paying $500 or more for a player.
