Looks like we might see another Wii price cut this year. It's starting to sell less each week compared to last year when it was still $250. And with Kinect and Move coming. Anyone agree?


I dont think we will see a price cut, but anythings possible.

I'll probably get flamed to death for saying this but.......we may be seeing the effect of Nintnedo relying on this new demographic. Industry loyalty, IE: "core" gamers will always be there however this new demographic that Nintendo has tapped may need to be fed stuff to keep them coming back. Im by no means saying its a fad, but theres a lot to be said for a dedicated userbase/demographic in this industry. This is why MSFT was able to come in and in 1.5 generations establish itself as a serious player, they tapped into that dedicated market of users who will be constantly interested in this industry, its a reliable base in the long run.

But Nintendo is arguably the most innovative company in this industry so it if anyone can come up with a way to get a fleeting demographic to turn their heads back to the Wii, its them.

Why? They didn't manage that with the gamecube, and (excluding the wii) havn't all their consoles since their first, declined? Seems to me they don't know how to hang on to the core crowd

1983 - NES - 62 mill
1990 - SNES - 49 mill
1994 - N64 - 33 mill
2001 GC - 22 mill


Maybe it's because Nintendo new president sorted things out, Iwata made wii and DS succesful.

To the core crowd? we will never know how much of the Wii's userbase is split between casuals and core.

Nintendo declined because they tried to fight the competition instead of ignoring them. It wasn't the 'hardcore' they lost, it was the so called 'casualz' or mainstream gamer as I prefer to call them. Nintendo couldn't outdo Sony because Nintendo aren't very good at the cutscene heavy story crap that the 'hardcorez' love so much. The core and casual shit really needs to come to an end. Go take a look at the NES's bestsellers and see if you notice anything similar with the Wii's bestsellers.



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

Hell yeah 360.I thought the DS was gonna be on top.

Pricecuts and colors are not the answer to the low wii sales, new fresh software is. And there is software coming. DK, Kirby, Wii Party and epic mickey this year, and then Zelda and Vitality next year.

Amazing that 6 months ago wii broke the holiday record and here we are talking about how it's totally screwed...


QFT.

The one thing, however,  I would like for Nintendo to do, cause they did it with the DS, is release an incremental upgrade for the Wii. It doesn't HAVE to be the "NEXT Wii", but if there is anything now that has become VERY apparrent, it's that revisions provide a good short boost.

If the sheep want to re-buy the same device dammit give it too them, lol.



The Interweb is about overreaction, this is what makes it great!

...Imagine how boring the interweb would be if everyone thought logically?

good 360 numbers, but majority are just trade ins, people getting shut of old 360 to get new one.

SW figures for 360 are actually lower than last week.

rest of numbers are about what you would expect at this time.

I might be jumping the wagon a bit on this one, but i do think Nintendo would(and should) be the first to realease a new console. The current Wii will keep on selling regartless of a new and more powerfull system(as it has already shown), and with the right price will keep on selling for a long time(just like the PS2 did, probably even better).

Either way a new system is the only way i can think off for Nintendo to win back the core crowd. Atleast that way they could attract all the muli-platform games that the Wii is missing out on right now.


The wii can last ten years imo jus t add HD and you'll having people eating it up regardless of graphic capablities.

360 > Wii & PS3 WW Combined.



clearly, it's the ps3's fault



A lot of the ps3 software rise wasn't for a while though.  So give it some time.
