    Fake boxart, fake prices. Nintendo already stated their games would ge cheaper. I assume they will stick with the $50 price. More news from nintendo should be coming in September they said.

    From what I have learned as I work in the gaming media end of stuff is that it's highly likely the hardware will go for $200, perhaps $250 but if there with some nice free stuff (game or something in there to make it worthy.) Games will be prices just like the GC so $50 or less(for budget titles I'd assume.)

    It's still not solid at all, just how it's looking to shape up. THey obviously can't force a greedy 3rd party (ie: EA) to not try and go for $60 with their launch and near launch games.

    The boxart and prices in that link are just placeholder images and prices so people have a rough idea what is coming out and have the chance to pre-order the item... most places do them.

    As for the console price you certainly don't need to have a job in the industry to know the Wii will launch for $200 or $250 with some extras... it's common knowledge and Nintendo have hinted at the price point many times.

    And yeah the prices of games will be about the same i.e. $50/£40, though naturally simpler titles such as say duck hunt will be cheaper with exact prices depending on the game in question and whether Nintendo release it on disc or only available as a download.

    FS.ca also has PS3 games for $74.99, which is $5 higher then 360/Wii games currently.

    Obviously that's the same way though, with just placeholder prices and boxarts. It wouldn't surprise me though as they are supposedly going to be more then 360 games

    Right in the images it says that they are mockups. Well doesn't actually word it like that but you get the idea.

    I'm betting it will be $250 and include 2 controllers + nunchucks and a classic controller maybe.

    Dont give Nintendo too much credit here-its usually very skimpy on its accessories, like any videogame company. But the PS3 and Wii were confirmed to be bundled with a game; read on either Kotaku or Joystiq. I'd search for a link but I fell too lazy roght now.
