This is the Official Wii Price Guess thread.  No discussion please.  Save that for this thread: link.

This thread is for you to post your best guess about the Wii's price.  We want a permanent record on the forum so when they do annouce the price we can publicly ridicule those who were wrong.

So how much is it going to cost?

Every other non-portable Nintendo console has launched at $199, so my guess is $199.

I think it's moderately safe to assume that the 2 rumored points are probably a good basis of the low and upper ends. ($169.99 - $229.99). I think it's reasonable to split the difference, so I'll go $199.99.

I'm gonna go out with the 2 price point model,

179.99 for the bare bones model with nothing but the system and controller

229.99 for the system, controller, wii sports and one or two downloads

I think they'd be most successful going out like this. What a great way to sell the concept with Wii Sports as a pack in, and get people on the VC bandwagon with a couple of downloads.

I'm in the $199 camp, but I could easily see $169 if MS lowers the price of the EcksBocksThree6Tee

In Soviet Russia, Wii prices you.

Seriously, though, I would pay up to $199.  That should come with Wii Sports and two Wiimotes, though.  If they are just going to do the system, it should be $174.99 at the most.

so you're saying that an extra controller and three(wii sports is three different sports) games is only worth 24/25 bucks?

Looks like the wii retails for anywhere between $40 and $150 depending on the bundle.

I am not sure that Wii Sports is warrants a full retail price and is something they could easily give away.  The difference would mostly be the extra wiimote.
