    Having purchased two Wiis, $200 seems too much for the console. Should be 179 max.

    There will be another price cut next year, my guess is to $150, followed by WiiHD in 2011.

    Eh, the margins over the PS3 and Xbox360 have dropped considerably since their price cuts. It was time.

    $200 lol, still $150 too much. The Wii is nothing but an updated gamecube with a fancy controller therefore it should be $50 tops. I'd consider one for that price just for when I have friends kids come over but otherwise I still don't give a shit about the most overrated console of all time.

    Despite what you think, there are actually some high quality games on the wii. Bigger and better graphics /= better games.

    Well, the Gamecube still retails for $99 new, so I'm not sure where you're getting that number..

    And how is it overrated? Nobody considers it "THE GREATEST CONSOLE EVER!!1"

    :rofl:everyone knows that pretty much every multiplatform game on the wii is better on the other two except tiger woods 10.

    however, i would rather play murumasa the demon blade, little kings story, and metroid prime 3 over many, many xbox or ps3 games.

    I don't think there's 3 non-sports multiplatform games they even bother porting to the wii.

    true. every console has it's quality exclusives which is why i own all 3. i'm just scratching my head wondering for $250, why the hell Nintendo couldn't build a beefier machine with HD graphics/sound or a (bigger) harddrive? imagine Metroid Prime 3 or Zelda in 720p w/ DD5.1. the Wii fanboys keep touting "Innovative Controls" > High-Def... so why is Tiger Woods the *only* game to show this?


    Call Of Duty series, Rockband series, Guitar Hero series, Star Wars Force Unleashed, Ghost Busters, Marvel Ultimate Alliance... just a couple off the top of my head. obviously not all of them are "great" but NONE of them are worth getting on Wii over the 360/PS3 counterpart.

    I'm not even touting invovative controls > HD. I'm saying that there are quality games on the Wii that are better than many games available on the xbox or the ps3. Because the Wii isn't a powerful machine, it's forcing developers to go with new art directions (red steel 2, murumasa, lost winds on wii ware, and even madworld) that look pretty great. Would an HD Zelda be amazing? Hell yes it would. But everyone this generation seems to think that the only way to have a good game is to have HD graphics, which is not the case proven by many Wii games.

    Ports from HD systems suck ass. If third party developers would take the time to make a special version for the wii instead of just dumbing down the graphics engine, then they're sales would be higher.

    All in all though, the controls used on the wii are pretty awesome compared to the way they pan out for ps3 or 360. RE4 wii edition, The Conduit, Metroid Prime 3 all use motion nad IR sensory control schemes that I feel are superior to the dual analog.

    It comes down to sports games right now. Many people like Ghostbusters better on the Wii. NHL2k10, Tiger Woods10, Pro Evo Soccer09 are better on the Wii. Rock Band and Guitar Hero are pretty much the same on the Wii (and sell better). But all of this is moot, because the Wii has just as many if not more quality exclusives as Xbox360 and the PS3.

    I bought a wii last Saturday at Best Buy. Would I have to return it and get another one, or could I just ask for a $50 refund because I don't want to take it back?

    they have a 30 day price guarantee, I think. or at least a 2 week one. they should give you a refund, just bring your receipt with you.

    tiger woods is the only non-nintendo made game I've bought for the wii in awhile.
