It is my opinion that, while everyone will say that they want more powerful systems, increasing processing power does not lead to a significant increase in what people are willing to spend on a console.

Less than what it is now.

i said 500 but i mean euro with that. and i can't really say because i don't even know how powerful the wii u is^^



I could afford a $1000 console with no problems if I wanted to, but 'out of principle', $500 is the limit Im willing to spend on a console, regardless of its power compared to competitors, and provided the system will get at least 5/7 must have games in its first three years.

The "4 times as powerful" was just a way of making a more solid claim that "significantly more powerful" ...

€dit: i was talking nonsense here



Put 400, and meant it, seems like the price point for a "premium" console.....maybe 450 if I was really impressed (and it still had Nintendoland as a pack in) and it had a more impressive 3rd party lineup out of the gate. In all honesty though, PC gaming has made me a bit jaded towards Console graphics and I'm really liking my Wii U. I would gladly have payed more for them to beef up the spec a bit though, as I can see the CPU becoming a bit of a bottle neck and an excuse for third party developers in the future.

500+ for a video game console is too much for me, just out of principle.


$500 is a good price point for more powerrrrrrr.



I dont like Nintendo franchises so, I would not buy it.

i'd pay the same price for any console, and it's likely $250-0. my price point never changes. then again, it's based on person income, and benefactors.
