    Why is the Wii so pricey?

    Why is the Wii so pricey? I want to buy one I just feel like spendin' that kind of money! It is a smaller price than all the other systems, but still pricey!

    Its custom for the next gen systems to cost more money than previous consoles. Gamecube was pretty high for what it was, but honestly Wii is a good price. A price cut may come next year, but $250 is not a bad price to pay, and if you want more bang for your buck maybe buy a bundle. Comes with more games and extras, may leave you a little more satisfied.

    I'd rather pay 250 than 500

    but if you wait, i'm sure it will go down again

    No doubt you will probably see it go down after it starts to be available, and probably go down to $199 im guessing

    They cost so much because they're selling out everywhere, therefore retailers don't sell the console alone, they sell it in bundles with games. So the price goes a lot higher, you'll be lucky finding just the console alone I think!

    its pricey because nintendo wants to make a profit on their consoles so they overprice it for that.
