    Why the Wii Won't sell 80m+

    in Sales Discussion on 01 April 2007

    The expensive Nintendo stock is why Nintendo had that 'quiet period'. They wanted the government holding company to sell some of its stock back to the public, to make it available for ordinary Japanese people to cash in on Nintendo's success... ...

    Why the Wii Won't sell 80m+

    in Sales Discussion on 01 April 2007

    I think he meant Nintendo has 30 billion dollars to invest if necessary. The company has never had an unprofitable quarter since it has been publicly traded in the 1960s. That kind of wealth builds up greatly. It is true that Nintendo rarely (if ever) has revenues over 5 billion dollars, but they generally profit between 600 million and 1.2 billion dollars (thank god they do, their stock is...

    Why the Wii Won't sell 80m+

    in Sales Discussion on 31 March 2007

    I bought my Nintendo 64 for $250 in 1996. I had to shovel 50 driveways during Dec 1996 at $5 each to get it...but my question is.. Was N64 really launched at $200? I'm pretty sure it was officially $250, or effectively $250 when retailers/Nintendo saw the demand - by the time it launched I think both PS1 and Saturn were less money. My main point on the price is that it will sell better than...

    Why the Wii Won't sell 80m+

    in Sales Discussion on 31 March 2007

    I don't think Wii will sell over 65 million...but it could and here is why: No other system has ever had such a relative price advantage. Granted, the core model of 360 is $300, but I'm pretty sure Nintendo could drop the Wii to $150-175 and just about break even. If Microsoft doesn't want their business venture into gaming to become like Vietnam, they are not going to drop the price until...

    How well will Nights Wii sell?

    in Sales Discussion on 27 March 2007

    Assume this game is real since it has been picked up by...kotaku, neogaf, a Sweedish magazine, neogaf, ign, gamespot and Sega demanded that the picture from the Sweedish magazine be taken down. OMN also claims it is not an April Fool's Joke. Additionally, the Sweedish magazine is free...so there is no gain in tricking people into buying the magazine. Therefore, it looks like Nights 2 is real,...

    Is the Wii doomed?

    in Sales Discussion on 19 March 2007

    I disagree...at least for Japan. 360 sales are bad in Japan, PS2 is dying, PS3 can't yet offer the potential for a game to sell one million in Japan. Once developers get a whiff of a huge userbase, they will figure out how to use the hardware - that is what is happening to the DS. But there seems to be an 18 month to 2 year delay of fence sitting/optimizing development. I don't know about...

    Who wants to be a moderator?

    in Website Topics on 28 February 2007

    Wii-Gamer, As a general concern, I think you need to share your contacts in the industry with whoever becomes a moderator. This would work especially well if you had an Xbox favoring guy (say...Monty?) and a PS3 favoring guy (Kwaad?). Although these people do not have contacts like Bunkum or Broshnat...counteracting opinions based on the same information would greatly improve the site's...
