Wii To Cost $170

Illustration for article titled Wii To Cost $170

So the word on the street is that the Nintendo Wii console is going to be priced at $170. That's pretty cheap, considering that an Xbox 360 will still cost you $300 and up and a PS3 will cost you a cool $600. The speculation is that Nintendo is hoping that customers will buy the Wii and another console. The pricing details for the Wii were released by an executive at Electronic Arts, who are releasing games for all three platforms.

The price point is fabulous, although from what I am hearing, the specs on the Wii are more in-line with the specs of a PS2. What is the price of a PS2? But, we are not buying it for the processing speed or graphics resolution - it is for the controller. For that matter, I suppose they could just release that controller for the PS2, and we would be set.
