How much would you pay for a new console.

Via a topic from Neogaf 


No more than US$300. Any new console released I expect to be able to leave without getting a game at retail. Once that console is at home, synced up to the network and hooked into my tv (wires?) I should be gaming within minutes. because the console comes preloaded with demos of every launch title. All the while Seamless background downloading the next level. Finally once I finish the demo I have options of purchasing the game and for the indecisiven restarting. One click or push of the buttons(?) I’m seamlessly into the title. Oh and for those that love nostalgia. You can also purchase the game at your local Gamestop.

Well yeah I guess but I would hope there are also demos fom online-onlygames. Where is my Lost Winds 7 and Bubble Bobble HD: XXRemiXX. Not to mention like you said Steam and the charging App with an even more impulsive system. MS, Sony and Nintendo are seeing this. They want you to buy it online and will go through great length to make more people do it. Its better for them and for even the retailer might receive a few copies to package with a stuffed animal and kitty helmet.
