The Wii U is only $50 cheaper than the PS4

This is possibly the stupidest argument I have ever heard as long as I have been gaming (since GB/N64/PS1). The Wii U Basic bundle is $300, the PS4 is $400. But whenever you say that to anyone, they like to say it doesnt count because it doesnt sell well/doesnt come with a game.

Okay, so the Basic is the inferior version and doesnt count because it doesnt come with a game. Fine. The Deluxe model is $350. The PS4 is $400. But wait, if the Basic cant be counted because it doesnt come with a game, the PS4 cant either, because it also does not come with a game. Games are $60. Thats $460 for the PS4. But you cant play the PS4 online without a subscription. So if you want the full experience, thats another $50. Of course, PS+ isnt required, but if the full Wii U bundle is the only one that counts, then you cant just use the bare bones price of the PS4 in comparison.

Wii U: $350
PS4: $510

Thats a $160 difference. of course, this argument is shunned because it shows that the Wii U might be a decent value. But since it helps the ponies argument, we can just use the bare bones prices for each.

Wii U: $300
PS4: $400

So STOP saying the PS4 is only $50 more than the Wii U.

If money is an issue, the console itself will do just fine, aka the basic model, stop living in a bubble.

$300

For $150 tops (being generous here, towards the silly tablet controller) of outdated hardware. Fact.

If money is an issue, then they shouldn't be wasting $300 on a videogame console.

I did. $300 for Basic, and had a 300GB USB drive lying around.

Problem?
