Icecreamdunwich posted...PS3 is most likely going to outsell the Wii by the end of this generation. Sony made a long term investment, something Nintendo fanboys don't seem to understand for whatever reason.
Yep, honestly I think PS3 won the generation as far as "best console library" too. Wii had some games too, and 360 had like... 3

As soon as this announcement happens, Nintendo better think about dropping the WiiU's price immediately.

I think that is fairly reasonable for a launch price, but I wont be getting the console at launch

The rumored PS4 specs are not top of the line PC by any means. AMD cpu 1.6ghz 8 core, with built in radeon graphics based on R10XX laptop gpu. Their off the shelf PC components used in the system will bring down the price.
We are seeing a low-mid range cpu and gpu components in the PS4. However since the system doesn't have to run a constant OS like Windows it can preform better playing games.
The best of the best cpu is a intel i7 6 core 3.5ghz which sells for $1080 and the best video card is a gtx 690 which sells for $1000.
PS4 isn't using current top of the line parts thats for sure.

Per-unit costs dropped, yes, by a small margin, but that savings is countered by the costs to retool everything to make it, going far beyond die process.
Again, the system is moving fine now. Between that fact and the fact that they're selling real estate to pay long-standing debt, there's absolutely no reason to drop the price.
Gaming is like a pair of boobs - Sony and Microsoft fight over whos boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them - Walkiethrougie

I knew I had that number wrong. Also, retailers stated that they themselves saw $80 of the 3DS profits during that time.

It may have been 168, or 158, not 100% on that one. (it was below the current MSRP, I know that much) With the price drop Nintendo let them keep their margins, which is what led to their loss. It was probably a bulk payout. Then renegotiations occurred and the 3DS should have been profitable again as soon as Nintendo started shipping more.

You know what, Sony could make the PS4 cost around 400. Remember what they did with the Vita.. Announce the system to be around 250 ish give or take and everyone was like "oh what a cheap price with all those power". After we finally got the detail from Sony that it require a sony brand memory card which cost 50+. So yes Sony could make the PS4 costing around 400, but will there be any extra require to have items?

I don't see why anybody would say they feel ripped off by something's price. You don't have to buy it.
It's not all about sheer power, if there are no games that take advantage of said power in a meaningful way, it's pointless. Also, there's the fact that you'd have the Wii-U for Nintendo exclusives. I don't current own a Wii-U but I'm sure I'll want one a year or two down the road when a big first-party exclusive or two drops (and hopefully some of the more serious system bugs will be ironed out at that point).
