Why are people so fixated on the price of PS4/720 vs. Wii U?

#1Shovel_BreakPosted 5/1/2013 1:35:51 PM
I mean the PS3 and 360 are most likely going to get price drops with their successors launching this year, isnt a bigger deal to worry about consoles that are getting a lot of the same games the Wii U is getting and being made even cheaper this year?

I dont see how a price advantage against PS4/720 will help when it'll be at a big disadvantage with the PS3/360 getting a price drop

Wii U can't compete any other way so being cheaper is the only hope.

Price is the last bastion. Originally it went like this:

"Sony can't afford to make another console"
"OK they are making another console, but they can't afford to make it powerful"
"OK it's powerful, but Sony can't afford to lose money on it so it will be expensive"

If it's affordable, then the fanboys have nothing left to fall back on.

Because, believe it or not, price matters. PS360 are obviously gonna get cheaper, but they're on the way out.

This.

After the UE4 skipping Wii U and no E3 press conference news, the hacking, the lack of 3rd party games, and a long etcetera, the other two consoles being more expensive is kind of the only thing fanboys have left.

They can always resort to tell people how Sony is broke, Microsoft is greedy, Activision is evil and CoD sucks, though.

I don't care. I'm over 30 and make good money. As long as PS4/720 it doesn't cost as much as a NeoGeo used to I don't care.
