    In a recent conference call an EA rep let slip a few little tidbits regarding its scheduled Wii titles.

    "...we have ramped up [game] production for the Wii and DS Lite' following significant excitement over the Nintendo-created consoles at E3."

    The EA representative then went onto say that at launch the Wii titles will cost no more than $49.99 (39 euros, £26). Whether or not this price will stick is anyones guess but it does tie in with earlier reports of Nintendo's plans to encourage lower game pricing.

    That is what I hoped and figures. $49.99 for the huge big new releases and $39.99 average for the rest.

    lol I remember when I was 14... hardly had any resources to buy my own games with lol other than some pocket money. Now that I'm 20 and have a job (nothing too great, just working at a supermarket, but the pays alright and the cheques never bounce :p ) means I'm self sufficient when it comes to purchases and gaming. As far as the pricing goes, $49.99 USD sounds about right, I've heard that number thrown around for the Wii games before, and it works out to be around $65.3037 AUD (courtesy of http://www.forex.ch/converter.htm) which is much more reasonable than the predicted $150 USD for each PS3 game.
