How long until this is a 149$ console?

#1HackfestreturnsPosted 2/1/2013 5:58:09 AM
I would want one of these for exclusives, but not anywhere near the price they are now. At all. Since a decent size list of good exclusives usually takes a few years for Nintendo anyway, is there a chance this will cost around $150 in 2 or 3 years? Thanks.

I doubt it. Maybe 200 for the white console.

Because even after the 6-7 years it's been out you cannot buy a 360 at that price. Generally speaking only dying consoles that are at the end of their life span will ever get THSAT big of a drop.

If they do a redesign, you might be able to get a white one for $150 in 3 - 5 years. But I honestly doubt it.

I doubt they'll do a price drop. While the Wii U isn't doing phenomenally right now, it's not failing. It is not early-lifespan 3DS and it most definitely isn't the Vita. We won't see a price drop for a very very long time.

I think the GamePad is what inflates the price of Wii U. It's not your ordinary controller, which would be much cheaper. So factor that into the price. Plus it's a new console, Nintendo needs to make money off it.

Actually, you can buy an Xbox 360 for $99 now.
