Nintendo Wii for 955 Bucks!


In the mists of Tony’s everlasting console debates regarding feature/price, today I stumble across this little gem. So today I get this small ad catalog for a big retail chain here in Argentina (Fravega), and  looking around I spot this insane crap. That’s 2999 Argentine Pesos or 955.40 US Bucks for a Wii (according to, which is just crazy/insane/out of hand . Sure it may be an “exclusive launch(!!)” or whatever, but close to 1000 Dollars for a Nintendo man! So that’s the type of crap we have to put up with here. And you people complain because a Ps3 is “too expensive”…pffft..

Yes, but how much does the PS3 cost there? I’ll bet you it’s close to $2000.

Probably. Those Argy’s are crazy like that.

Sebaz, can you confirm prices of the 360 and the ps3?

If you want to buy a PS3 through retail chains, I heard prices close to 2000 Bucks. If you want the shadier eBay route 1300 Bucks. As for the 360 no idea, but rule of thumb is easy double MSRP most of the times when it comes to stuff like this.

Truth be told there’s no point in getting a PS3/360 here. HDTVs are rare and far in between around here. At the same time, if you can waste 1000+ Bucks on a PS3 you probably already have payed upwards of 3000 Bucks for decent HDTV screen here..
