    I think microsoft wants to recoup some of the losses the incurred on the units during launch. I mean right now they are finally making money so why not make the unit profitable for you before lowering the price too much.

    I don't think that nintendo will lower the price of the wii for the first year and a half. Next christmas we will probably see some game pack'in's with the unit much like microsoft is doing this year. I think price reductions typically come in the 3rd of a 5 year cycle unless the unit has failed in the market place. I think the wii has staying power as it is unique and offers different gaming experiences even with games that crossover on all platforms.

    That has always been the attractive thing about Nintendo. Their console and game prices have always been lower than the competition and more often than not they include some kind of pack in game.

    All (or most) new consoles include some game with it to help promote sales.

    That's usually not true at launch anymore. Just as the idea of giving people two controllers has become a thing of the past.

    I'd rather have two controllers instead of a game because if only that bundle is available, you're forced to play it. (Not saying that Wii Sports is bad.)

    I know what you mean. Like the PGR3 bundle for the xbox360....if you aren't into racing games then it's really not a bonus at all.

    I dont mind so much about the colour thing. i like the white one, but if they drop the price by $50 and make the system better i will be pissed! Nintendo would lose a customer if they did that to me.
    Rrrrrol up the Rrrrrrim Stats:

    "Please play again" = 25
    Free Coffee/Donut = 4

    Wow I can't believe the cost is only $158 per unit. At $200 retail I imagine they would fly off the shelves (although they are already lol).
