Nintendo is gonna have to drop the Wii-U down to $199 after the PS4 comes out.


If they do that, they would take huge losses off of each Wii U console sold. Too, too early for the system to be at $200.

I will have the advantage when I own both.

Seriously, anyone who feels animosity towards a console or people who own certain consoles is a cretin and an underdeveloped byproduct of our evolutionary stagnation. Get over yourself and your asinine brand loyalty, you universe-forsaken freaks.

WiiU basic is 300. The basic PS4 will be at around 400.

WiiU deluxe is 350. The deluxe PS4 wil be closer to 500 dollars. Wait and see.

Plus those controllers surely cost 70 bucks a pop.

True, the WiiU pad is a bigger minus than 70 bucks, but the cheaper wiimotes balance that out, I believe.

It's hard to tell. There is nothing really attractive about the Wii U, there is nothing attractive about the PS4 either. But Wii U has an advantage because Nintendo can drop prices once they realize it's not selling. And when the PS4 comes out, the Wii U will be much cheaper.

Sony isn't going to sell PS4 for $530.

@DarkZV2Beta

I'd be interested to hear your build as I'm sure it would be much better than the other posters.

was what I came up with.
Faster CPU, roughly equivalent GPU, more flexibility, less lockouts.

Less rebate reliant.

If they sell PS4 for $400 at launch, its gonna blow Wii-U outta the water. Nintendo is gonna have to practically give these things away. Look for a Wii-U in clearance.

Its gonna be used to run textures at around 4x what the Wii does.

Those controllers won't be $70, they'll have the same MSRP as the DS3, at worst be $5 more.
Search engines are awesome, you can find the answer to the question that's been asked a hundred times before in a manner of seconds, more people should try it.

I guess people are all assuming we're going to transfer an old operating system onto the new one. And I guess the price gap Will really depend on whether it's $400 or $530. I think the price gap is pretty wide if it is $400 and comes with a touchscreen controller Plus Eyetoy.
