Nintendo should have raised the price to $299

True fans of Nintendo do not see their products in terms of price.

Sounds more like Apple than Nintendo if you ask me.
Those who say it cannot be done, should not interrupt the one doing it.

The WiiU is coming out next year, it would look bad if they were within $50 of each other.

Nintendo fans simply enjoy Nintendo. Gett out with that trolling logic. :D

Crap, how am I gonna damage control this one?...I know, draw attention to another company I think is doing the same thing wrong! Phew, dodged the bullet on that one, now the criticisms have no merit.

And remove all the preloaded software, and put it up on the eShop.

And only sell the stylus separate from the system. For 11.99.

Watch they're totally gonna take all my ideas now.
shoot the core.

What? And do what Sony did with the Playstation 3? It would be stupid for them to do that.

Damn Sony. After I bought my PS3 at launch, not only did they RAISE the price another hundred dollars, but they locked me out of PSN until I mailed them the difference!

What a horrible company. Nintendo saves.

EVERYONE sees things in terms of price. Asking $250 for this thing was ridiculous to begin with, and the masses spoke with their most important tool... Their wallets.

It's about value, not fanboyism. For $250... there simply wasn't enough value to justify the price. In my opinion... there still isn't. I don't see how a pile of NES and GBA games will save the platform. Nothing like paying $250 to play games you owned 10 years ago.

It's only 4-5 months old, when next year hits I bet we see a bunch of games that make the price worth it.
