    $250 Bundle =
    $40 game (approximate price)
    $60 controller setup
    $70 wireless out of the box (remember, wireless isn't standard on any 360's or the PS3 core. Going off of a 360 model, a 802.11abg is $100, so I'm estimating a 802.11bg MSRP around $70. Anyone complaining 360 is only $50 more should remember this has wireless built in)
    $80 console

    After you subtract the accessories you get and the premium piece of hardware (the wireless is really the only thing premium when you look at other game systems), the system is only $80! That's extremely cheap. Look at 360 core and the system itself is $260, or when bought in the premium pack it's about $220. I don't even want to get into the PS3...

    I found this in a site, so its not made by me...
    More like $150 for console, wireless out of box is like 20 bucks at most, if your talking about controllers? if your talking about wifi, same thing, its just a receiver, and its built into the DS too so i dont think its 70

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    A decent price .. though I would say slightly overpriced. When they announced it wont be more than $250US I was hoping it might go for something like $199US or $230US tops. But they went with the highest price possible without breaking their promise T_T But overall a fair price I guess..since we do get a lot of bundled hardware and software.

    Yeah, I think that's possible. I have a laptop with built-in bluetooth aswell, a PowerBook G4, and when I was at school the other day during lunch, I had my laptop on and a little box popped up on my screen. It asked if I would recieve a file from "RAZR" which was obviously someone with a RAZR cell phone, which has bluetooth trying to send me a file. I accepted but it didn't work for some reason.

    So, it's probably possible, but may need to be hacked to get it to work.

    I only have a laptop because I work quite a bit and hardly buy anything. I had bought a $1000 iMac, which is basicly a computer that's all inside the monitor. Anyway, I sold that and made a profit of $500 and worked some more and that's how I got my laptop. Just wanted to explain that so you won't think I'm rich because I'm not.
