    That is exactly why a price cut is very unlikely now or in the near future.

    There wont be a price cut or even talks of one untill around its third year. Its no point to cut the price. Its $250 is the lowest priced console on the market, its competitors have to lower its price to compete with its price range. Its sold out every where, so why lower the price for something that is selling as is. Lowering the price wouldnt benifit them it would actually do harm. If they cant keep consoles on the shelves now then if they were to knock the price down then they realy wouldnt be able to keep up with demand. It will likely stay this price for another two years if they even drop the price. I personally don't see them doing that unless they drop the price of the ds too. It just wouldnt make sense to have your console almost the same price as your hand held.

    I can't foresee a price cut coming to the Wii anytime soon. The reasons for that are of course as mentioned above for the most part.

    It is simple economics at this current time, it's supply and demand. As long as there is a demand for the Wii and they are selling them as fast as they can make them, there is no need to lower the price. Only when it gets to the point that sales drop off, and it would have to drop a lot, would they lower it.

    Also, if you compare the other consoles in the market, and what they have done, you will get a better idea of how this will work out. The Xbox was the first to market, and it lasted 2 years before they made a price cut. This was of course to try and cut into the Wii sales a little, and to increase their sales that had dropped off. The PS3 on the other hand dropped after 1 year because their sales have been in a slump since the beginning.

    There was a report out that estimates that the demand for Wii's and the production would not level out till April of '08. If that is true, and you can start finding them on shelves all the time, I would say you may, at the earliest see a price cut next Holiday season to increase sales.

    This is the most stup*d question I've seen! First of all, you would be extremely lucky if you can find a Wii now and even at $300 price mark. So more likely, it will be still a little hard to find Wii spring next year. On the contrary, I heard that Nintendo might even increase the price to $279.99. You should take Economics class to learn about Supply & Demand. The only reason Nintendo would think about cutting the price is when both Microsoft & Sony cut the price on their consoles by another $100 more. As for the iPhone, it's a different story because the price was ridiculously high, most expensive phone on the market. And for Wii, it's the cheapest console on the market. Do you know what you were talking about?

    hold that thought
    the supply these days is way higher these days. Just check out half.com, ebay or craigslist, somehow the price drop from around $450 up to the beginning of Dec all the way to $3xx, some even lower than $300. Even in amazon, price drop from nearly $500 to just a little more than $400. Check these sites out yourself if you don't believe me, I keep checking the trading price of Wii these weeks since I want to selling some for profit also. I don't know what happened. May be like some people said, Nintendo increased supply?
    I got 3 of them, and are forced to sell them just $30 more than MSRP, since I don't know what will happen after Dec. The heat and the over of holiday season may not favor selling Wii for profit.

    And, easy, dude, this is just a question. I have seem questions and posts wayyyyyy more stupid than this one, but still tons of people are replying.

    The iPhone's price drop because the demand was low, the price was high, and they had to much supplies. We has to much demand, not enough supplies, and the price is already low, no need to lower the price, at all, if it did I would be very surprised, I wouldn't expect a real price drop, excluding store sales, for another year and a half.
