you know this is something I have never understood about PS and Xbox they come up with new generations everycouple of years yet Nintendo comes out with a new platform about every 4 years and the price is a fraction of the others. there will be about 400,000 PS3 released this year, there will be about 4,000,000 nintendo Wii released in the us this year for less than half the price. Can you say rip off. Teh nintendo games for a new realise are $49.00 a new realise for Xbox is $60.00 why is that do they do something special to justify the higher expense???
Don't forget the WII is reverse compatible with the Gamecube, and you can download N64, SNES, and NES games for it (for a fee of course). Not only are they presenting what is, theoretically, a cool new system, they're offering 20 years' worth of great games, too.
Of course, only certain games will be available for download at first, but if I can get Goldeneye, Mario 64, and/or Blitz for the 64, I'll be happy.
