Then you are foolish to attempt to compare and older system to a newer system.


No Nintendo was foolish to make a newer system as weak and more expensive then older systems.

Official. I'm actually surprised there isn't a $250 ps3 model anymore, it's been replaced with bundles you can't get a ps3 on it's own anymore lol.

A lower price will help, but what got the 3DS selling had more to do with the sudden deluge of quality titles.

Except that 1. We have not seen the full potential, 2. we have no clue about the games that will fill the library.

Comparing it to an older console's library and price is stupid even if the system was more powerful.

1. lol you are so delusional, we have the specs we don't need to see it's "full potential" to realize it's not going to outclass ps3/360.

2. Actually we do know what games are going to fill the library, mario, 5 mario spin offs, zelda, zelda port, Monolith games and crappy 2d side scrollers with various Nintendo IP skins.

No it would be stupid if it was a gen more powerful and you ignored that fact but it's not so it's not stupid, also it's fair game to compare anything on the market, as long as you factor in everything (ie factor in the specs for ps4 when comparing it after it releases)

I don't think the price drop needs to be that drastic ($280 should be fine), but they'll also need to release new games.

Except that with the specs it can outclass the PS3/360 given time and effort are put into the games

2. And no, new IPs can be created, 3rd party could also make original or release titles from their series to the system too.

And yes it would be stupid because you are comparing a much older consoles which have been around for years to build up a library of games and has gone down in price to a brand new system with no established library and a higher price because it's new.

1. It outperforms them it doesn't outclass them, just like ps3 out preforms 360 but doesn't outclass it.

2. Can won't except for monolith games. This is Nintendo we are talking about. Same with third party they could but they won't.

Being new doesn't make a price higher, being more powerful, having more GB, having a new drive or something does wiiU isn't significantly more powerful, it has way less GB except for the 360 4GB 200 model and since it's new it should have better features not worse. If you compare wiiU to anything it looks bad because IT IS BAD.

The fact remains that the PS3/360 have had years of tinkering by the developers and SDK updates from Sony/MS to allow such power to come from them. Games from their launches are nowhere near the capacity current games are demonstrating....but, if you'd rather we compare games from launches rather than from potential years later, then go right ahead. The Wii U still beats the pants off them in either case.

$280 for 500GB and psn+ ... why don't you back up your claims rather then making up bs?

As for the 4GB 360, what's your point, not many people are going to get it because it's got a puny amount of space, like both the wiiU bundles, might as well add another 50 to the wiiU price for a decent harddrive.

Why not stop cherry picking? There are plently of systems (Better ones at that) for much more. Besides these systems are also cheaper because they are several years older. The PS4 and 720 aren't going to be this cheap.

Besides for $350-400 for the better HDD you pretty much trump the cheaper consoles HDD space.


He's not just cherry picking, he's posting links to Walmart's Canadian website, and including bundles that are not in stock.
