wii u is way too expensive

#1Retroxgamer0Posted 6/16/2013 6:21:34 PM(edited)
i dont know why they price it 350 dollars for the good model, and refuse to price drop it, but thats priced outrageously high for what you get. how do they plan to sell it to anyone at such a price? other than the million or so hardcore nintendo fanboys, i cant see basically anyone else wanting to pay that for the wii u console. for comparisons sake it is priced 100 dollars more than the ps3 which not only has a bigger harddrive but it does bluray, and has a better online setup, and bigger game library. why on earth would someone choosingly pay more for less? also the console is made of recycled wii parts, theres NO REASON they cant reduce the price, this thing DOES NOT take ANYWHERE near 350 dollars to make. i can see if it were a more powerful system with tons of added features, but all this system is, is an hd wii. wii is what, 100something?

the fact that nintendo is so arrogant as to say they are not dropping the price of wii u, is preposterous to me. i mean how arrogant can you be?

im not trolling i backed up every statement i made. i said why the wii u is overpriced (because it doesnt offer any extras such as bluray or anything to ramp up the price) i compared it to the wii but simply hd, but the wii is super cheap, and i said the parts in the wii u are recycled wii parts. if i was trolling id make baseless assumptions or post random gifs of jontron instead of respond in a more appropriate manner.

Why would they want to pay sony royalties?

You're correct TC. The WiiU should be $200 max considering it is using outdated specs that are already available on the PS3/360, yet it has less features than both those consoles.
