I figured since this has become a PS4 bash/Wii U reassurance board I'd ask here. I'm pretty interested in the Wii U especially with the Windwaker game being re-done. How much do you guys think the price drop will be when it comes?

I would suspect that they will indeed drop the price by $50 for the holidays.

Unless the PS4 is priced a $350, don't count on it.

If the PS4 is higher priced then don't count on it.

I figure there could be a $50 price drop by the holidays right before the competition arrives given a decrease in development costs just to kill attention that the competition may have garnered. I don't think it'd be necessary but it would be a heavy blow if they did paired with the heavy hitter software releasing this year, but don't expect anything. Especially this soon.

Uhh, why would they? They don't want you to buy PS3 / 360 instead of their next gen machines.

This. I expect the PS4 too be a bit more costly than a WiiU, but come holiday season a small price drop with some of the holiday titles would be more enticing than a PS4 with launch titles.

Which will also hurt PS4/720...

Exactly. I'd love to get a PS4, but if the Wii U was a bit cheaper and came bundled with some games I'd actually play, then I'd be all over it. You KNOW Sony is gonna price that PS4 way up there.
