    quick question

    Okay, so we all know it costs us 250 dollars to get a wii, for those of us who have one. My question to you is: how much profit does nintendo make on that 250? For example, lets say it costs them 125 to make a wii, and ship it out to retailers. Then they'd make 125 dollars per wii. Because let's face it, they can't make these thing for free, and they'd obviously want to sell it for more than it costs to make it. How much do you think they make per wii?
