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

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.


haha, sad but true

Interestingly enough we have some price info on the Xbox.

http://www.nbcnews.com/technology/ingame/new-xbox-will-be-powered-core-version-windows-8-report-6C9632646

The lower cost option is $499.00 with no subscription required with the higher price point of $299.00 plus a 2 year subscription to Xbox Live at $10 per month for an ending price of $539.00 That's going to make a huge difference to parents buying for their kids but not so much gamers buying their own devices.

I only skimmed the article initially but this wasn't from an official MS source but I could see this being true. What do you guys think?

Why is it my dog can hold it's bladder for 8 hours while I'm at work but only 25 mins when I'm home?

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


This. I'm not over 30, but I have a good, salaried job. As long as it's not something completely insane, it doesn't really matter.
