I personally think they would just give up on the Wii U at that point and start over on something new... or cease to exist on the (console) gaming market, either or. *shrugs*

Sony could do it, but they would take a $100 loss before retailer margins came into the picture.

honestly a 100$ loss per console isn't so bad.

I doubt that, at best maybe a $50 dollar cut to even it out and Nintendo would have to announce and improve a LOT of games and features.

The WiiU in the UK is cheaper than the U.S. so yes.

no i believe ps3 with $600 price tag was $200 loss per console
if sony does use the same spec as detailed and go with $300
they will easiliy lose $500 per console

I'd like to think that Sony has learned their lesson regarding pricing, but looking at Vita and the PS4 in general, they probably haven't.

What would be an expensive ass console in a market where PS3's will sill be selling and developed for, Sony would run into more problems.
