that's a much more enticing price range, but the system still doesn't have rayman legends and pikmin 3.

Great news for those who wanted to get it cheaper, it would have been great if they could have it at that price not only at launch but for everyone but oh well, the beauty of retail market means you can get deals like that anyway.

If $99 is too expensive... heck if $299 is too expensive... you have bigger issues to worry about than gaming. And I say this as a person who hates Nintendo.

Wait, the price in the title is not the price you can actually buy it for?

Erm, if someone sells a gum for $10 I can afford it but I'll still think it's too expensive and therefor not buy that shit... Saying that doesn't mean I have financial issues, it's strictly telling about the value I see in a product and what I'm willing to pay for it.

What? I'm referring to people running with the bombing aspect because a wholesaler offers the thing cheaper than MSRP, like it's the first time a retailer sells something cheaper. Which isn't to say WiiU is doing well or anything, but this is irrelevant.

I'll probably give it a go at $199. But it's gotta be the black system, and include a pack in.

People wanting $200? LOL the hell? That's dropping to handheld prices.

But anyway, that deluxe price is pretty decent.

It was a joke how everyone still wants to see the price going down, even when it just went down. You can apply that logic until it would theoretically hit the $99 mark, and it would still be considered expensive.

This is my price point to buy when it has next to no games I want. Otherwise I will wait a year or so. Of course Nextbox/PS4 may take my money by then.

Maybe if they bundled some games to go with it as well. $250 seems steep for what you're getting and the future releases that we know at this current moment in time
