    OK, I have no idea how much a wiimote charger is, so ill put it as $30AUS and using a handy dandy currency converter:
    640.00 AUD = 528.144 USD

    Therefore, Wii with all your thingos is $528 approx. How much is a PS3 USD?

    Your on crack if you think Wii could cost more than PS3.. you still need extra controllers (which are wireless and still need batteries/charger), games, dvd remote control etc for the PS3.

    Wii is like a Wii, Gamecube, N64, Snes etc all in one for that low price.

    So add all that extra stuff to the $999 price tag for PS3 and Wii's price will never come even close.

    Nooooo

    After taxes it will cost around $700 to go home and play a PS3.

    After taxes it will cost around $270 to go home and play a Wii.

    Stupid thread.

    I agree this thread doesn't make a lot of sense. You still have to purchase very similar accessories and more for the PS3. Plus, aren't the PS3 games $10 more?

    wii = $250
    component cable = $20 (only if you have an HDTV, I don't so I save the $20)
    virtua console controller = $20
    Gamecube controller = $20 - $25 (this is only if you want to play gamecube games, and if you do the games are cheaper than PS2 games methinks)
    wiimote charger = $30

    $280 - $345 max. There is really no comparison. On top of that as people have mentioned PS3 games are $60. Nintendo has always milked us with accessories, but there is no way you can compare a Wii's price to a PS3. One of the biggest reasons it is doing so poorly in my opinion.

    What, A wii is 250, a charger is 30 and who needs cables? They come with the Wii and no games are in HD so there's no need to buy HD cables. And games are cheaper so no the Wii is much cheaper than a PS3 or 360.

    345 with tax(7%)

    wii - 250$

    cables - 20$ Like Scorp said... Some people don't have HDTVs

    Virtual Consol Controller - 20$ Most VC games can be played with the wiimote or GCN controller.

    GCN controller - 25$ If you have GC games you probably hshould have GC controllers...

    Charger - 17$ Not even sure if this exists but I erad an article that said they were 17$

    250+20+20+25+17 = 322 * 0.07 = 23.24 + 322 = 345

    They do exist. :wink: There are many models, but the most common is Nyko's which is around $30. Do a search for rach's awesome thread on chargers in the Hardware forum.

    ^Well Im pretty sure for 20 bucks you could just get 3 rechargeable battery's instead of a charger.

    Yes you are an ass...you don't know how hard it took me to restrain myself not to include that in my above post. Sure,we've all heard the excuse that some posters here don't speak english at all or very well..then why post here at all? I'm sure there are plenty of forums in your native speaking language to bother with this worthless ****.

    In the UK the PS3 is around £420 and the Wii is £180 and the currency rate is 1.95 $s for every £. So basicly we have to pay $840 for the PS3 and $360 for the Wii, just wanted to get that off my chest lol :D

    Please don't get me started on us getting ripped off
    Also:

    We pay:

    Wii Game - £40
    PS3 Game - £50

    If that was the case in America

    Wii Game - £77 [Abouts] - Lets Call It $80
    PS3 Game - £97 [Abouts] - Lets Call It $100

    xD

    Americans pay $50 a game, Which is £25 to us. How come we have to pay £15/$30 extra?

    Anyways. The PS3 is ALOT more expensive than the Wii.

    If the OP you included all the extra stuff not really needed for the Wii. Maybe you should of added all the junk for the PS3 on? [If there is any]

    PLUS!!!!!

    £30 - Wii Remote
    £35 - PS3 Controller

    So yeah:

    Price
    PS3 > Wii

    Lol... Classicmote is just $20 and the Game Cube controller is not necessary, and, if you have a game cube already... you know... PS3 won't have ever a dock station, so count on batteries... is pretty cheaper the wii and awesome.

    Yeah but wii games look better in Component.

    P.S he didn't say HD cable. He said Component which isn't a HD cable.

    Component is an HD Cable. You can get 480p/720p/1080i out of component cables.
