IF PS4 and 720 arrive at similar price points the WiiU will drop off. core gamers will likly choose PS4 and 720, you can quote me this next year. WiiU is actually lanching more expensive than the orig 360. it doesnt have the family friendly price tag as Wii did so il go with 40 - 50 million
Wut?!? 360 launch prices...
$299 "Core" model, no HDD, 256 MB mem card, composite cables only.
$399 "Pro" Model, 20GB HDD, Component cable. No games bundled for either SKU.
Wii U Launch prices...
$299 Standard Edition... 8GB flash memory infinitely expandable w/ any USB HDD, HDMI Cable, Controller AC adapter.
$349 Premium Edition... 32GB flash memory infinitely expandable w/ any USB HDD, HDMI Cable, Nintendo Land, console stand and charging cradle for controller.
The Wii U is launching at the same exact price as the "family friendly" PS2 did way back in 2000... nearly $400 when adjusted for inflation.
