    Well considering Sony is losing like $200+ per PS3, and Microsoft was originally losing money on the 360 (I think they just recently started turning a small profit). Nintendo is reportedly making like $40 profit per unit, so dropping it $50 would still give them less of a loss then Sony and Microsoft's console release profit margins. We shall see... *rubs his 3rd eye*

    PS: lets not forget the original price target for the Wii was $100, but the price increased as they added faster memory, more expensive chips etc.

    Yeah the Wii is tiny but still 0wns. It just shows that a console dosent have to have good graphics to attract attention . The wiis graphics suite the system . Here look at the size of it compared to the ps3 :

    Sorry for the amount of misinformation you have received, as Nintendo has never confirmed releasing any other colors OR a price drop. The only thing confirmed for the future is DVD playback.

    I will probably get a ps3 next year so I dont care if they change the color of the wii. I can just get a skin for that. Also by christmas of next year the ps3 price will drop and there will probably be other colors. I can wait for the ps3 since no good games are out yet.

    ps3 won't drop in price until blu-ray players do.

    unless they have ps3s just sitting on the shelves i guess.


    .... o wait they do!

    So they might drop the price and they might not. So if I buy now, I can only hope they don't or else I'll feel stupid. If I wait, I can only hope that they drop the price or else I would've waited for nothing. Man this is a tough decision!
