And a lot of people have stated the thing putting them off buying a WiiU right now is the price.
The reason the PS3 didnt sell out was that it was the price of a small car.
Also, its still a bit of a cunts trick to mark out the SKUs by colour. You may as well mark the white one with a scarlet P for poor.
You have a point, but ultimately I'm not sure it matters. People said the same thing about the Arcade version of the 360 (not about the colour, but about it being a clearly inferior SKU). It still sold in large numbers despite "better" SKUs being available.
At least with the WiiU it supports 3rd party storage options out the box. People may buy it either because a) they are more interested in retail titles than digital purchases and b) they may already have/intend to purchase 3rd party additional storage capacity.
If people can get the same or more capacity by buying a cheaper 3rd party peripheral than buying the most expensive "official" best option, they will tend to do so.
