Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U Meant for Consumers with Higher Disposable Income, Says Nintendo

Come on guys, what is wrong with you? I didn't get anything WHATSOEVER from that interview other than that the Wii U will be more expensive than the Wii. What a surprise!

Reggie mentioning a different target consumer for Wii U = $600. Really, people?

If Reggies has the last word on the matter, considering his record of trolling the Americans, it just means that USA won't have Wii U. Hence the "different target".

Well... if that's the case, then I can't wait for this thing to come out...






...so I can wait even longer for the price to drop.

People are tightwads???


You really using that card during a recession?

Are you still not taking the recession into account?

And perhaps after a couple gens of seeing their favorite company fall so short in sales, would Nintendo fans not have reason to be concerned it will happen again?



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Ill use that card, whenver, because there are cheap ass people in the world who will not be willing to pay a certain price for a console no matter what timeframe. "recession" is just an excuse to cover up some of their cheapness. 300-350 is expensive for a console?? Really?? If that is really going to break your bank, then something is wrong. 400 and up is a bit much and 600 is crazy, but no one said it would be anywhere near that price.

1. You implied that anyone complaining about the price is a tightwad, not some people. That's a very important qualifier you left out.

2. They didn't use the recession as an excuse. I was stating that the recession made a price not a good idea. It's not people being cheap. When so many people are out of work, they CAN'T afford to pay that much. Do you even know what a recession does to people's finances? Calling that an excuse just makes you look ignorant of basic economics. If people say they won't spend an extra hundred or so for a game system during a rcession, it's usually because they need that extra money to make their bill payments.

3. Actually, over $300 is expensive. Just because some recent ones launched higher doesn't make it a good idea, especially when sales were shown to be best at $300 or lower. It's basically trying to milk customers, and then claiming that they should just put up with it.

And no, hardware specs are not a justification. That matters to graphics whores, and most gamers are not (even if people in the gaming industry evidently are), or else Crysis would have the sales of Call of Duty, and Other M would be outselling New Super Mario Bros Wii.

 Absolutley agree with 300 - 350 being a decent price. I mean; the Company making this expensive stuff needs to make money too! 

     (I though at first that you were saying people not buying a console for $600 makes them tightwads, kinda scared me there, haha!)

i really doubt sony is going to drop ps3 down any more right now , their already losing money per unit sold or is trying to recoup what it can , plus vita just came out

and microsoft ya dream on they wont drop theirs any further cause its still selling


and as for ps4 720 in 2013 nope not happening ,
2014 -15 sounds about right if you even expect a more powerful console then what wii u will be and you can expect prices to be 500-600 ! while wii u wil be like i said 300-349.99
400 at most

Agreed.

There 's no way ps4 and xbox720 coming only 1 year after wiiU and more powerful  with just 50-100$ more.

Look at ps3 and xbox360.



Two jobs it is then.



e=mc^2

Gaming on: PS4 Pro, Switch, SNES Mini, Wii U, PC (i5-7400, GTX 1060)

Two jobs are not qual.Small one is used for streaming controller when large one for processing.
We don't know exactly dividual power between two jobs but I doubt the streaming 'll take more than 10 percent.
