Forums - Gaming Discussion - Nintendo needs to drop WiiU's price soon and here's why

Tagged games:

Here are some of PS4's advantages:

 

  • More power (objective)
  • More game support (objective)
  • Blu-ray (objective)
  • Better looks (subjective, almost objective)
  • Cheapest Playstation console ever (inflation accounted for; objective)
  • No name confusion (WiiU vs. Wii; objective)
  • Sony consoles can generally sell more at a higher price than Nintendo consoles (objective)
Regardless of you disagreeing with me or not, do you think they will drop the price prior to PS4's launch? If so, by how much and will it be enough to combat the launch of two new systems?

You seriously acknowledge the Wii U as competition for the PS4?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

Yeah I can't see the WiiU competing with the Ps4 at that price :/

What about the 3DS?



PS One/2/p/3slim/Vita owner. I survived the Apocalyps3/Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.

3DS has no competition, it makes its own rules!



Pack a external HDD in and Wii mote for 349. I mean 32GB WiiU for 349 versus 500GB for 399, the 50 alone is made up by the HDD. Everthing else is added value for the PS4.

What you fail to understand here, Peh-Zeus, is that Wii U is dead in the water. Nothing, not even a price cut will save it against the god-like status of The PS4.

Now, onto big man talk. Do I think Nintendo will drop the price? Um, yes. Before the PS4 Launch? I hope not. I'm pretty sure they aren't making money on the current price, so an even cheaper price will put them even further down the hole. And no one wants that except for the devil himself.

Right now what they need is a new marketing push and bundles with the already announced games that are releasing this year. This will last until Nintendo starts to make at least a penny off the console. (Then, and only then, should they drop the price.)



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Well, they'll prob do it eventually.
