    $299 PS3 slim vs $250 Wii

    Sony confirmed that the brand new PS3 slim will be released in September 09 and will be priced at $299. That's only $50 more than the Wii and it includes HD graphics, way better online service, 120gig HDD, and a Blu ray player. Now that Sony also has shown trailers and demos of motion control games, Nintendo has got to do something asap. WiiHD? Wii price drop to $200?

    If you have the money, it's hard not to get the PS3 for $299. You can even buy many classic PS3 games now for $20 or used ones for $15. Even if you don't play games, the PS3 is the best BluRay player around. I do hope Nintendo does something soon cuz I'd like to buy a black Wii for my parents (who already owns a PS3) if a price drop takes effect. Actually i might get the black one and give them the white one.

    The PS3 had a huge advantage over others with the blue ray capabilities, but they did nothing with it and dropped the ball.

    It's sad when I read posts like this and every thinks of blue ray as movie viewings only.


    Oh here's to my sweet satan. The one who's little path would make me sad, who's power is Satan. He'll give you, give you 666. There was a little toolshed where he made us suffer, sad Satan.

    Only demand is relevant to pricing.

    The Dreamcast was $100 cheaper than the PS2 at the DC's launch and was half the price at the launch of the PS2. The Xbox was the same price as the PS2 at launch and the PS2 outsold its competitors.

    restricting your self to those 2 games is only doing bad for yourself
    Firstly halo 3 was bad (IMO)

    LEft 4 dead is FANTASTIC one of my top 10 games EVER

    but still theres plenty of more exclusive and amazing Xbox 360 games that you should branch out and try

    lost odyssey
    blue dragon
    Gears of war 2 (i didnt like 1)





    IMO nintendo have been very ignorant.
    refusing to lower prices, and doing nothing really NEW (please motion plus thats great but not NEW new is it)
    there letting the other better consoles prices fall all around them while refusing to go HD or get hardrives, or eve a simple DVD playback.

    the 2 things Wii had going for it was Affordable, and Motion controls

    well Xbox and PS3 have picked up motion controls.
    and xbox arcade is cheaper than wii, with other versions not much over it.
    and PS3 is a lbit more with a lot more in it.

    It's doesn't matter, the same was happen when Microsoft launched the xbox360 arcade at lower price than the Wii and to date you didn't ever see any change in the customers prefferences, The Wii rules the market. The same will happen with the 80gb ps3 and slim at $299, again it's doesn't matter. I would buy a ps3 for the Bluray feature, but later I purchase an upscaler DVD player, and frankly I don't see a big difference between the upscaler DVD player and the Blu-ray player.
    I'm better playing with my Wii, waiting when Nintendo launches the Netfix service to see great movies on my HDTV using my Wii.

    If more than anything else, I believe Nintendo will go down the DS route.

    Drop the Wii a couple of bucks and release an upgraded Wii for the same price as ones in store now, flushing away the previous price drop.
