    i hate all this 'analysts expect' pointless imho, still that would probably stand to reason it will be 150-200 quid over here, not too bad, i might get one once its sub 100 as i doubt i could justify buying one on release especially at chrimbo

    £150 or less and i would buy one in a second, anything more than that then i'd have to think about it.

    ....fingers crossed for £120'ish

    i think people are getting too excited over the price of the wii, expecting it to be ridiculously cheap. £150 will be the lowest it'll be I reckon, but more likely 175-200

    Didn't a few of Nintendo's machines previously come out at £130?

    £129, although they originally said £150 - I got a lovely suprise on launch day with that little nugget of information :D

    I can see the Wii being £200. Wasn't the N64 initially £250? I remember distinctly that I couldn't afford one and a game until the price drop to £200. Maybe it was £200 -> £150.

    I'll go for £130 then :)

    I would seriously consider getting one at that price. Does anyone know the predicted price of games yet?

    I'd rather it was a little more expensive, say £200 but come with two controllers and a game and maybe a voucher for the virtual console.

    $200 probable is just for US, £200 is the possible for UK.
    Consoles and games price always higher in UK.

    Given the exchange rate at the moment even allowing for taxes £150 would be more than equal to the $200 ;) (it's something like a dollar for 54p at the moment)

    It's a good idea of Nintendo to leave out all the usless crap so they can keep the price down £150 will be ace as I hear the PS3 will be £400 which I think is an insult.
