What do you think the Wii U price will drop to?

#11darkqueenhelbaPosted 2/20/2013 9:49:03 PM
I would say, unless the PS4 is the same price with a fairly impressive launch of games for the holidays...I wouldn't expect to see a price drop. Wii U hasn't shown any major indication yet for a reason to drop the price. January was slow for them, but that's how January is. Now, if the next couple of months have the same figures as January did there might be a price drop in the near future.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ETaP $500 PCS4. Sony isn't going to be stupid enough to price it at $500 when you'll be able to build a better desktop tower for less with retail, off-the-shelf parts, and have more thermal overhead, better longevity, more functionality, ect.

It's going to be $350-400. $350 if they do a super low-storage model, $400 for ~$350-500gb.

Do people honestly expect Sony to sell a packed desktop tower for more than the retail value of the parts?

Depends.
How much does the controller cost? Will it come bundled with the Playstation 4 Eye? How large is the price difference between DDR3 and DDR5 for console manufacturers? How much are they hoping to up the price to cover the cost of R&D?

Not much, maybe, not much, and they'll take a loss to grab market share and recoup with software licensing.
