    Will you buy the wii if its price was $600 and the PS3 $250?

    Anyway I wont, for me, price is one of the most important factors... and I will buy a PS3 instead cause is cheap... (I dont like expensive consoles)

    PD: If this thread is for the lounge... plz move it, I dont know in what section to post :D

    Well... which are ur opinions?

    I would get a wii only if it had the beefed up graphics and high definition movie player of the PS3 currently and if I already had an HDTV. I wouldnt get a PS3 for 250, I would wait for the price of HDDVD or BlueRay to go down and for a clear front runner in that battle to come forward and then buy a move player accordingly. For a Wii with PS3 graphics and the Wii interface, I would pay no more than 300. It would be more expensive than that, but i would have to wait - im not a big enough gamer to drop that kind of money on a console.

    No, I wouldn't buy it. The Wii's a nice console but it's not worth anywhere near that much.

    As for a cheap PS3, I'd probably buy it.

    I would buy neither as well, U know y? It would be a PS2 w/ slightly better graphics because it wouldn't have the blueray. Didn't think about that did u? Since it has no innovation like the wiimote to promote it, it's left w/ nothing new but a 3 at the end of PS.

    I think he means if the price for everything thats in PS3 now was $250 and the Wii with all that it is now for $600. And if so then my answer is that I would definetly buy the PS3, play that for a while, then see later if I still have an urge to get the Wii. So maybe...

    PS3 for $250 or Wii for $600. You'd have to really hate Sony not to take that deal. And I'd never buy a Wii for $600... never. It's a good console... but not worth that kind of money. No console is worth $600.

    I would consider buying the PS3 (that much power for only $250?!?!?!? Crazy!) I would also probably wait for the Wii price to really drop down and then get it.

    Well, I will do exactly what brokine said, but maybe I will not own a Wii if I liked the PS3

    This thread has really made me think... I always bash the PS3 because of its high price and credit the Wii because of its low price. Yet I am buying the Wii because of its games and innovation so even if it did have a high price I would still buy it.

    Im thinking that if it was priced maybe at $400 with DVD playback and better graphics that I would still buy it. But not how it is currently.

    Until I heard about the Wii I was out of the console war this time around, the 360 and ps3 are so boring, the same old ho hum and way to pricey, then the awesome Wii for good price, but still not worth $600, no game console is worth that, I would just beef up my computer more and be able to do better graphics than the ps3, well I probably can right now but I haven't seen the best the ps3 can do.

    That's my point. If I had the money I would be richer than Bill Gates...
