Expensive?<br />
<br />
$250 for a console when it's closest competitor is $300-400<br />
<br />
$20 for a controler at launch?<br />
<br />
$50 for games when others are $60 and talking about going up again?<br />
<br />
<br />
I see a price drop for 360 before the end of the year based on those prices.......

</div>My thoughts exactly...<br />
<br />
Even though it seems pricey you have to compare it to 360 and PS3<br />
<br />
I mean the PS3 games are going to be like $75-85

but if you have to buy all of those to utilize the full range of games, then that's a lot. $535. still less than the PS3 though, and wider range of games and gaming styles. so it's worth it.

How much does the Wii dog tag cost? lol<br />
<br />
cgrado: For $249.99 you get a console, remote, nunchuk controller, and a game (wii sports). I think that's plenty cheap. Where did you get $535?

</div>you do know that the Wii will come with a controller...right?<br />
those peripheral costs are for extras - you don't need to buy them when you buy the system

the Wii is gonna be the cheapest next-gen console out right now. PS3 is like 500-600, and 360 is still like $350. Read a report somewhere, don't have link, that the 360 will possible have a price drop in the first quarter of 2007.
