    Nintendo Doesn't Want a 3DS Price Situation on Wii U

    How much would you pay for Wii U?

    Of course
    The 3DS price drop has had an extremely positive effect on the system's sales, but it left some early birds wary of buying a Nintendo console at launch in case the same thing happens again. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime knows this, touching on it briefly in an interview with Fox Business.
    The Wii was priced for profit at launch and still is, in fact, Nintendo making a profit on every one of the 500,000 machines sold on Black Friday this year. With all eyes soon to be on Wii U, will Nintendo go for profit on each unit or sell at a loss to get the console into as many homes as possible? Fils-Aime didn't give much away but did acknowledge the company wants to avoid a repeat of the 3DS price drop:
    We had to go back and reduce the price of 3DS and we certainly don't want to go through that when we launch Wii U.
    Fils-Aime also stated Nintendo wants to avoid the lack of third-party support that dogged the 3DS launch.
    What else do you think Nintendo needs to avoid to make Wii U a success from the get-go?

    If they start with a low price, they are most likely guaranteed to repeat the same success they had with Wii sales.

    Low price, more people quicker to jump on the band wagon. Be it buyers who love to wait for price drops, or parents who would prefer to buy the console that's half as expensive as the other for their kids. It's as simple as that, really.

    A good set of launch titles wouldn't motivate me to buy early, but that'd probably help sales as well.

    They'll prolly make it $400, then see ppl aren't buying it due to having visions of beng chained to play more shitty party games in HD! And drop it to $295 a few month later.
    I try to make my posts clear and easy to understand so they don't sound like "imA gonsdds 2yuz shvsdfoool" or whatever 2cuokls4usz crap most ppl speek in the land of brooklyn nowadays.
