    The Japanese prices seem very reasonable.

    Let's see what prices will be for RIP OFF Britain...I predict:

    £50 - £55 per game

    £180 for the system

    £8.50 for N64 downloads

    We shall see...

    well there it is. December 2. Now the speculators can stop speculating. The price of everything except the console are higher than what I wouldve wanted to see. If i want The console, wii sports, zelda, and extra wiimote+nunchuk then I will be paying $400 plus tax. Im not ready to do that. I could, but I dont want to make that kind of expense right before christmas. . .
