The exact price is still unknown. Nintendo has been saying "Under 250 dollars/euro" for quite some time.

That would be the biggest rip-off for us Europeans. Wasn't it rumoured to be $170 is the US?

That's only UKú90. At most it shouldn't cost more that ú120 here. 250 euros is more like UKú170. Almost double the predicted US price.

People say the PS3 is gonna be expensive, I tell you what, it doesn't seem like it will be as much as a burn on Europeans as this.

In many stores around here the core version of the Xbox 360 already retails for 249€ after discounts.

To remain competitive, the Wii should stay under 200€

Well, I slate this console ALOT on here and pretty much all the time, but the reality is I will still buy one simply to play Mario Kart SNES on my LCD TV.

That alone will make me buy one. LOL

If any other games turn out to be half decent, that's just a bonus.
