Nintendo Gamecube should open price war
The Gamecube, Nintendo's new game console, which will hit stores in early November, is said to be available at a competitive price. What was already suspected by analysts, Nintendo officially confirmed yesterday. The Gamecube is said to cost a mere 199 US dollars, matching games are sold for 50 US dollars.
With the inexpensive console, Nintendo wants to encourage 2.5 million people to use the Gamecube to buy. Microsoft's X-Box will hit the market around the same time for $ 299, 50 percent more than Nintendo's rival console. According to analysts' estimates, Sony will reduce the price of the Playstation 2 by up to 50 US dollars at this time.
