    If the Wii was to cost that much I probably wouldn't even consider getting one.

    For that about of money, I would never consider buying on. The wii is good and all, but for the selection of games, no HDTV computability, and lack of graphics, it's a turn off at that price.

    No console to date has had a real success story with a $600 price tag. The closest would be the SNK Neo-Geo, ranked the second longest lived console to date, second only to the Atari 2600. While some may consider it a "success" story, however that is in fact limited, due note that the company did go bankrupt.

    Yeah I would never buy a Wii with a 600 price tag, the Wii Nun-chuck controller feels like a cheap plastic through >.>

    It probably wouldn't be as popular if it was $650, and to be honest, if it were that much, I would want HDTV, or at least extra features. I personally think $250 is a good price for the Wii; $650, not so much.

    I would have bought a 360, and then probably commited suicide when Brawl came out and I couldn't play it.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    I think of it like this...the wii was intended to be made as a game system that changed the gaming world. while everyone was concerned about one-upping each other in graphics(sony and microsoft), the wii was intended to be groundbreaking in another way(control/interface)...also in changing the way that people interact with the game, it made it something that not only hard core gamers could enjoy, but something that those who have never been interested in video games could enjoy. By broadening the customer base, they also had to take into account their customer's budgets. I say all that to say, nintendo made the wii a game system that everyone could afford, rather than creating just a niche item that only some would spend 500+ on. It wouldn't be a Wii if it cost 650 dollars
