The Wii will probably see a price cut, or will get significant bundling

I say yes, I think around a $25-$50 price cut and they need to compete with the 3DS as well.

Why in heavens would a console compete with a handheld? What's next? Refrigerators competing with Televisions?



Above: still the best game of the year.

I personally don't think a price cut is needed for Wii to be #1 again but I still think its time anyway.

I expect 360(maybe Kinect too) to receive a price cut around April 2011.

I expect PS3 to also get a price cut but around June 2011(E3)

I expect Wii to gets its 2nd price cut around May 2011

Yes, I think that price cuts will happen for all 3 systems around the same time in 2011.

I think all 3 home consoles will.



I'm not really here!


Most seem to consider it a foregone conclusion for some reason or another. I think they can hold it off till year after next. At that point though, they can set records for the nth time with the Wii by cutting its price in half. This is how Wii's life should be till Bii.

2011

Q1 - Zelda Skyward Sword, Bundles

2012

Q2 - Nothing

Q3 - Nothing

Q4 (Bii Launch) - Player's Choice collection. MK, Brawl, Galaxy 1/2, TP, SS, NSMB, etc. price cut to 20$

I think Nintendo maybe have talked with others 3rd companies to build some others majors Nintendo IPs, just the way they did with Team Ninja and Metroid. For example, F-Zero Wii may be connected to Sega, didn't the make another one for the GameCube? Starfox may be a good work for Namco (I think the second Starfox in GC was also made by them). Nintendo has also repeated so many times that Pikmin 3 is in development so we may see it in 2011. Finally, they could do the sequel to Luigi's Mansion, what is Punch Out team doing right now? They could do it.

I say that because as many of you have pointed out, Nintendo will start shifting resources to 3DS and next Wii, so they cannoy have their AAA teams working on Wii forever.

Everybody is talking about a price cut...what about a new version just the way PS3 and XBOX360 did? I wouldn't find imposible for next year to see a Wii Slim or something like that...although Nintendo don't use to launch new versions of homconsoles, I know...but who knows.

Related to 3rd parties...I don't think they are going to abandon the Wii in such the way it has been spoken. Next year Wii will be above 80Millions and that's not posible to ignore. What about Capcom, didn't they have something BIG in development for the Wii? A real Resident Evil maybe? And Rockstars? Didn't the say that they needed people who knew how to programm on Wii and DS systems? May we see a GTA spin off on the Wii?

We already know that Conduit 2, The Grinder and a new Call of Duty are coming next year.

Finally, some games that haven't left Japan could come to the west next year: zangeki non reginleiv, Tales of Graces, Fatal Frame 4, next Fatal Frame Remake, Xenoblade, The Last Story.

Japan may get Dragon Quest X for Chritmas next year too. That would be a very strong as on the Nintendo side for Wii in the holiday season.



They may do it next holiday, but they will wait a while for the Dollar and Yen to compare better.
