A lot of people are complaining that $250 is a lot of money for the Wii claiming it's just a souped up GameCube with a new controller. Lets take a look at what you get.
$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)
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...
