$450? I just barely believe you! It's bad enough that every consoe's price in dollars gets directly "translated" to euro ($250 = 250 when it comes to consoles), but... $450?

They may be sold out here, but the price still stands at... let's see... 2749 SEK, which converts to HOLY CRAP?! $406?! Something's NOT right here...

Wow, yeah, I figured as much. The dollar has gone WAY down in relation to our currency. One USD is 6.7 SEK now. Around five years ago, one dollar used to be 10 SEK. In fact, last time I looked, mere weeks ago, it was at 7.3 SEK. Alright, you just can't compare anymore... The KR has gone way up and the dollar has gone down it seems...

I don't know if I'll actually buy any of these, but if I did buy one, it would be the Wii.  I had a chance to play over in one of the other dorms where they had 3 Wiis set up with 2 nice flatscreens and a projector.  After 3 hours of Wii sports, I was hooked.  It's just fun to play, and that's what I like in my games.

I got the Wii and the 360. The Wii rivals the others in quality and crushes them in price, and seeks out originality in ways the others didn't. So it's my favorite. But the reason I got the 360 stands strong: Bioshock ( http://media.xbox360.ign.com/media/793/793105/vids_1.html ) watch them both in the highest definition you can.

Wait just a tick... If 1 USD = 6.7 SEK, then isn't the krona way down in comparison to the dollar?

EDIT: Neeeeevermind. I just read the rest of the paragraph.

Anyway, Europe always gets screwed in the gaming business it seems.

my 360 cost 275 - thats about 550$, and games cost about 40 so that $80 dollars.  Although the UK is an expensive country to live - so i guess its not too bad compared to what people earn and the prices of other things.

I just swung by the gamestores today and asked about the Wii.

It appears the *only* thing people will be able to buy before Christmas is a Wii/Zelda bundle. Separate consoles won't be sold until after New Year!

The best part? This has kicked the price up from 450$ to 680$! That's thrice the original price! At most, Zelda would only cost an additional 70-100$. What the hell is going on here?!

I chose Wii/ Ps3. I'm a playstation fanboy but I'll never leave my nintendo. Xbox can kiss my pixelated ass.
