I figured this would be obvious by now. I don't know how they could sell it for more considering what they're putting in it. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to totally lowball everyone and sell it for $100 or $150, although $200 is by far the most likely price.

100 or 150 O_o? seems way too low, considering the DS is 130 now. having a console cheaper than the handheld from the same company would be kinda weird. then again, the ps2 is cheaper than the psp, and the gamecube is cheaper than the ds. but i mean as psp:: ps3...ds::wii.

200 is my bet on the lowest they will go.

I wouldn't be surprised if it launched at $250, but $200 seems more likely.

If its 200 I will get one. 250, might make me get a 360. Not sure yet. Really it depends on the games. :D

Even if the games for the Wii aren't all that spectacular, I'm still going to get one for the catalog of NES/SNES titles. When I told my fiance about this, she was impressed and wouldn't frown on the purchase. :D
