Wii Games To Cost USD50


EA confirmed that Nintendo plans to sell Wii games for USD 49.99 while the company has announced its plans for the Wii launch.

Both X360 and PS3 content will carry next-generation prices to match the next-gen hardware but it seems Nintendo will make right on its E3 2006 promise to keep Wii title prices near the USD 49.99 mark. This would make Wii games USD 10 cheaper than their X360 counterparts while they would also be at least USD 10 cheaper than PS3 games too. This cheaper price is not really a surprise as most analysts expected Nintendo to take advantage of the lower development costs involved when creating content for the Wii. It would also be odd to ask for the same money for HD and Non HD content.

According to EA, the game title NFS: Carbon and Madden will be ready for the Wii launch while a shedload of EA content will be ready for Nintendo's console by March 2007.

Early speculations sirculating around the web indicate that Nintendo's Wii game console will be powered by IBM's "Broadway" processor and ATI's "Hollywood" Graphics Processor Unit (GPU).

The Broadway superscalar microprocessor will include six execution units (floating-point unit, branching unit, system register unit, load/store unit, two integer units) and is expected to run at 729 MHz. ATI's Hollywood GPU will operate at 243 MHz and will include 3 megabytes of embedded graphics memory and 24 megabytes of internal main memory.
