article imageWii supposed to be a sub-$100 console

According to Miyamoto, Wii, was supposed to be under $100 mark!
Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo's general manager of entertainment, analysis and development, has revealed that the Wii was originally planned as a sub-$100 console but spiraling costs of new technology prevented the company from achieving its goal.
I'm rather suspicious that these "technologies" would bump the price by $150, but still, Wii is the cheapest [next-gen] console out there!
