    [QUOTE=NateTheGreat]I think that's what a lot of game companies think about their games; if we sell our games for $20 or $30, we won't be able to survive.

    This is most likely untrue. If games were sold for $20-30 a piece, more people would buy them and the end-profit would probably equal, or exceed what they make when they charge $50 and now $60 per game.

    Umm - Im sure that these companies have economists and are aware of what the best selling price is based on capital costs and competitor's pricing in addition to the supply and demand thing that your highschool mind decided was the only deciding factor for selling point. I say it all the time and I mean it now more than ever. Nintendo are not idiots. Dont take any offense to this, just saying that there is no need to question nintendos practices because they have been doing this sort of thing for a long time

    This is stupid... of course Nintendo will include the Nunchuk attackment with the Wii! If one or two games required the Nunchuk attackment to work then I could understand Nintendo selling it seperatly, but almost all of the games require it to work which means they won't sell it seperatly.

    Microsoft: Wouldn't put it past them
    Nintendo: Probably less likely than the others

    Well, I'd certainly understand it if they sold it seperate, I mean if you're gonna buy a wii and use only games that are simple so that hey need the core controller, or they need the classic controller, Nintendo wouldn't make them pay extra like Sony. The expansion pak for the N64 was sold seperately (although they did do deals with it and certain games like Perfect Dark and Donkey Kong 64) Likewise the the memory pak wasn't needed for many of the first and second party games.

    I would understand if they left some things out to make sure the core package lived up to the low price point. It would be dissapointing, but I'd understand. Afterall, are you gonna peeve more people off by not keeping the promise of the price, or by having the adaptors for some games sold seperately?
