Yeah, no matter what they put under the hood, my guess is $399 is the absolute most they can possibly charge for the base system. Extra controllers may cost an arm and a leg, though.

Put your analyst on danger money, baby.

well price won't stop me because of how i live my life but disregarding that no matter the situation I'd still get it regardless of the price though it would be nice not to be super expensive so i can get more stuff instead of having to wait another month for more money to come in

then theres hardcore nintendo fans who will look the other way
hardcore fans who follow nintendo products but reasonably bases on thier situation be it finacially etc etc

I don't think there's any chance of the price being announced Tuesday. But for the fun of it, I'll say $375 for the console, one controller and a pack-in game. That's assuming the controller is what it is rumored to be and that the horsepower is a bit better than that of the PS3.

This is what I'm afraid of too. My guess - if the rumors are true - is around $350, and extra controllers landing at $99.

Do you really think that Nintendo is going to bring a system out that is more powerful than the PS3? How exactly would they do that? The Cell Processor is why the PS3 can render the insane graphics that it can, and if Nintendo tried to top it with a new piece of tech it could put the system in the $500-$600 range at launch. It's simply not going to happen, because that is the price that the older core gamers pay for systems and these gamers are the ones that Nintendo doesn't have many of anymore. Nintendo made the decision to push into the casual gaming market with full force with Wii and now that they own that market in home console gaming, I see the next home console sticking with a cheaper price and more casual titles. I don't think the PS3/Xbox 360 fans would pay the high prices for a expensive high tech Nintendo home console. I think that is one thing that Nintendo has lost for a longtime.

Nintendo games wouldn't benefit from extreme HD graphics. All Nintendo needs is a solid 720p HD system to put that nice HD shine on their games and they are set. HD Mario, Zelda and Samus and then a few innovative titles that appeal to the casual market that utilize the system in some unique way to pull them in and they will make millions once again.

I think that this system is going to be really similar to the iPad, and it's the reason the system is being pushed out quickly on top of the 3DS. It's all speculation, and we will see at E3.

I'm hoping that Nintendo keeps up with their tradition of never pricing a system at more than $250 so I can more easily afford one :D

It can't be higher than $299. Especially if it's only graphically on par or slightly better than PS3 and 360.
Most consumers just won't see the point, especially if all we'd be getting is ports.
Sure it'll still sell well regardless, but not gangbusters.

Plus there would be a chance that Sony and MS could just say, yeah we're going to price cut our big models and make it hurt Nintendo even more.

Do I think it will be $250-299. No, considering Nintendo thinks they can sell the 3DS for $250, they probably think they can sell the Cafe for $350-$400 whether it's a powerhou

So my prediction is. The smart price would be $250-299, but I'm expecting $350-399.

What about the 3DS being at $250 you say? It should be price cut to $199. The price it should've launched with.

The thing is if this new console doesn't have a noticeable amount more power than the PS3 then why try at all? If they're gonna try and compete for some of their old fans again, they're gonna have to show people that they aren't just playing "catch-up".
One of the first rumors we heard was "significantly more powerful than the PS3". Now significantly is very relative, but that should mean something shouldn't it?
So I think it's going to be expensive ($300-$400). But maybe this one will last us longer than 5 years?

If they have a use independent of the console, that's fair enough.
